Corn Salad keeps on producing a mass of fresh flavoured, deep green ‘lamb’s lettuce’ leaves. A late summer sowing will guarantee winter salads.
Sow seeds at fortnightly intervals from late summer to late autumn in a sunny position and well drained soil which is in good heart. Sow seeds in drills 12mm (½in) deep and 15cm (6in) apart. Water the young plants during dry spells.
Thin out when large enough to handle to 10cm (4in) apart.
To harvest first pull up every other plant and then pick a few of the outer leaves from the remaining plants.
