This page provides written and visual instructions for growing salad greens mix. The variety we will be using is the Elegance Greens Mix. The colors in this mix are stunning.
Elegance Greens Mix includes various shades of red accented with green and blue. A pleasing blend of flavors and textures makes this a real hit. It includes international ingredients such as Red Choi, Garnet Giant, Ruby Streaks, Spigariello Liscia, and Waido.
Days to Maturity or Bloom: 21
CULTURE: Gently shake the packet to mix the seeds. Tap the packet to sprinkle seeds about 60 seeds per foot in a 2-4" wide band, lightly cover ( 1/8"), and firm gently. Dry soil must be sprinkled to ensure even germination. Begin harvesting in about 3 weeks by clipping with scissors; most plants in the mix will regrow.
What are Salad Greens?
This Salad Mix is both a convenience food and a value-added product. Salad Mix is a blend of lettuces or other greens that are cut prior to full maturity and packed as loose leaves in bulk.
The blend is a balance of color, texture and flavor that can be tailored to your specific market or customer. Salad Mix can be anything from a simple blend of fresh, baby lettuce leaves to a complex, custom mix containing Asian greens, herbs or edible flowers.
Keep checking back for updates as the spring season approaches.
When do I start my salad greens seeds?
First of all you need to figure out what is your last frost free date--what is the last date a freeze is expected in your area.
My father and his parents always said it was safe to plant after Easter. Over the years, I have noticed that this works well for the South Texas area.
For the Elegance Greens Mix I will start my seeds inside around the 18th of February. They can also be direct sown which we may also do just so we can compare the two.
Well our Amazon Store has kept me really busy this spring. I have not had the time to post, take pictures and take care of my garden.
Then I was sick for a week so this spring has not turned out quite like I had hoped it would.
Below is a picture of the Elegance Salad Greens. I took this picture about a month ago, but during my illness, no one watered my garden, so it is suffering somewhat now.
I will probably grow these as a fall crop to see if we have better luck.

seed-starting tray that I ordered was sent and received in a timely
manner, and, as expected, is very well-made. In addition, the seller
responds to messages very promptly and politely, which is a rarity in a
day and age when a person generally gets stuck on the phone with
elevator music for an eternity!"
