Great for fall and winter

Grew this in the Willamette valley, Oregon. Started seeds July 1st. All seeds germinated, after being pre-soaked for 24 hours. Plants grew big and lushious. Bulbs big, white and beautiful. Perfect flavor. Very happy with this F1 variety.

no bulbs for me

Started 1/2 indoors in March, direct sowed the remainder in late April. These bolted in mid-August without producing bulbs. NW Wash. This is my first year gardening, so it could be me. 3 stars because the leaves taste great and germination is excellent.

• Gourmet greens perform best when planted in early spring or fall
• Most will tolerate light to moderate frosts with minimal cover• Plants are most vigorous and the flavors are better when daytime air temperatures are between 60-70°F
• Most greens are best direct sown
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 10 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• Cover seeds with Reemay or Grow Guard 20 to help deter birds and improve germination
• Sow greens every couple of weeks to ensure a continuous supply of young plants

Direct Sowing
• Use row cover to improve germination and prevent soil crusting
• Thin as soon as 2-3 true leaves have formed

• Start indoors 4-6 weeks before anticipated transplant date

Insects & Diseases
• Common insects: Aphids and flea beetles
• Insect control: Strong spray of water, or applications of Pyrethrin or Neem oil
• Disease prevention: 3-4 year crop rotation, and proper plant spacing allows air circulation to prevent molds

Harvest & Storage
