Description

Corn salad is a bright spot in the late autumn and winter vegetable patch, as it provides the perfect ingredients for vitamin-rich, nutty tasting salad in a strong dark green color in this barren time.

Protected with twigs or a fleece cover, or in an unheated greenhouse, lamb's lettuce continuously provides fresh green because it is hardy and sometimes even endures temperatures down to -15 °C. Best of all, this plant is extremely modest and hardly needs any care.

Package with approx. 2000 corn salad seeds

Growing instructions

Sow broadcast from July to September directly outdoors and only slightly cover with soil. Optimum germination temperature is between +16 and 18 °C. At temperature over +20 °C, corn salad germinates poorly or not at all. Harvesting is possible all throughout the winter if the salad is not frozen. In dry frost periods without any snow we recommend to cover the plants.
