  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile and moisture retentive

    Producing crunchy leaves with a tangy spinach-like flavour, namenia is ideal for adding to mixed salads where its deeply divided leaves will add flavour as well as textural interest to the bowl. Best picked when young, it is an easy and fast crop to grow and will be ready to harvest in just a few weeks after sowing.

  • Growing Instructions: Sow into trays or modules in the greenhouse or on a windowsill and harden off before planting out. Or sow direct in shallow drills where they are to grow, either in containers or in the open ground, thinning seedlings to 15cm apart. Protect from slugs and cover early sowings with a cloche. Ready to pick when the plant is approximately 15cm tall - the leaves and their soft stalks both have a good flavour.

  • Sow: April - October

  • Harvest: May - November

  • Approximate quantity: 500 seeds.
