  • Sow from late spring to early autumn.  Optimum germination temp 18c.
  • Can be sown undercover in plugs for earliest harvest.
  • Sow finely in seeds every 2-3 weeks for a continuous harvest.
  • Space the initial planting very densely, then harvest entire plants, leaving the strongest to grow to maturity at about 25cm (12in) spacing.
  • Sow very close together for baby leaf production.
  • Germination takes 5-15 days dependent on soil temperature.
  • Tatsoi needs a rich soil and plenty of moisture all through the growing season. Although they do better in cool weather, Tatsoi is one of the last to bolt during hotter periods.
