Item #
These unique multi-seeded pellets contain 5-7 seeds each of different greens for easy production of baby leaf greens in a small container. Alfresco Mix includes lettuces, arugula, endive and radicchio that give this blend a true Mediterranean flavor and texture. A special benefit is the various seeds in each pellet germinates at the same time, ensuring that maturity is even at harvest time. These greens prefer a cooler climate for germination and growth, so bottom heat is not required. In a few weeks you is harvesting tasty, baby greens for your salads. When the plants reach 6" in height, snip the tops of the plants about 1" above the soil line. New growth regenerates in three weeks for a continual harvest and each planting can be harvested two to three times. Sow approximately 5 to 6 pellets/12" diameter container.

Important Germination Note:This variety is offered in multi-pelleted seed. Germination issues are common when moisture levels are not properly maintained. The water-soluble coating of these pellets takes longer to completely dissolve even when fully submerged in water. Do not attempt to dissolve the pellet within a single watering. Instead, maintain a moisture level of four to five (medium wet to saturated) from sowing until the pellet is fully dissolved. Maintain high relative humidity in the germination environment along with adequate soil moisture, exposing the seed to proper germination conditions. The use of plastic domes or regular misting is helpful in keeping the adequate moisture until the seed germinates. Once the sowing stage begins, if the pellets dry out, they become hard to dissolve. This is why we highly recommend high moisture content right from the beginning. Hope this helps for next time!
