Grow seven different salad greens from just one packet of seed with this special mix. Enjoy the complementary flavors and textures of arugula, endive, red kale, red and green romaine, and Salad Bowl and Lolla Rossa lettuce. Beautiful in the garden and on the plate.
Plant seeds in early spring as soon as the soil can be worked. (Note: Lettuce seeds won't sprout when soil is warmer than 75 degrees Fahrenheit.) Before planting enrich the soil. Sow seeds sparingly, firm soil gently over the row and keep moist. Continue planting every 3 weeks.
Mesclun is a cool weather crop and must mature before hot weather arrives. Early spring and late summer plantings are the most productive. Begin thinning and eating when seedlings have 3 true leaves and continue thinning until plants are at the recommended spacing. Keep well watered. To harvest full-size plants, snip off individual outer leaves or cut off the entire plant.
