Plant my spring greens

Plant in a rich soil, preferably limestone, in the spring. Keep about 1 meter in all directions - this one grows wide. The first weeks it will need a watering in dry weather. In a warm and sunny spot and a well drained soil, this plant can last from 5 to 7 years. Winters that are too harsh may, however, take the best of it, but often the plant will start again from its roots in the following spring.

Water my spring greens

Keep an eye on your plant in the first weeks, and in case of drought - and water if needed.

Reap my spring greens

Harvest year round - although the leaves are more tender and sweet in Spring, of course. Instead of pulling up the whole plant, cut the leaves or head off just above the lowest set of leaves - from which the plant will regenerate.

Mulch my spring greens

Mulch - so as to reduce the need for watering.
