Literally ‘Seaweed on Land’. Japanese version of Salsola, with thicker leaf stems. Unusual salad addition with branched spikes of fleshy bright green, crunchy, samphire like leaf stems. Can be watered with saline solution to give saltiness in the leaf! Harvest 2-3 weeks for baby leaf, can be eaten up until flowering. Cut and come again.
Sowing instructions – Babyleaf production
Sow thinly into containers of damp multipurpose or seed compost and lightly cover seeds with sieved compost. Keep the compost damp but not wet. Seedlings will appear within 3-10 days. Keep weed free and well-watered when established. In cooler weather water less frequently. Harvest the baby leaves when large enough to cut. Use scissors to snip off a few from each plant at 2.5cm (1in) from the base. Avoid damaging the central growing point of the plant and allow the remaining leaves to grow on. Feed with a general purpose feed after cutting to support new leaf growth.
