They can be direct sown into beds and then harvested 10-15cm tall in as little as 28 days at peak season. Mixes also vary in suitability for different seasons, some are cold tolerant and grow well as a cold glasshouse crop in winter.
To pot grow, sow direct into pots or trays (1-3 litre) to produce a growing salad. Salad mixes can also be sown direct into pots (use 1-3 litre pots) to sell as growing salads. Dont expect a long shelf life from these quick growing items. Just sow little and often to get continuity.
