Growing in Containers: Grows very well in larger containers and raised beds.

Fertilizing (Containers): Add 25% quality compost to potting mix; fertilize weekly with a higher nitrogen organic plant food such as fish-based fertilizer.

Watering (Containers): Water deeply when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Check every day or two during very hot weather.

Growing in Mixed Planters: Grows very well in larger mixed planters and raised beds - think square-foot gardening!

Fertilizing (Garden): Plant in a garden bed amended with compost. No additional fertilizer is required.

Watering (Garden): Water evenly - very important!

Garden Companions: 

  • Plant with low-growing flowers such as Sweet Alyssum, Nasturtium and Marigold. Likes strong herbs, including Rosemary, Sage, and Thyme.
  • Good Neighbours: Beans, Strawberry, and Tomatoes.

Suitability for Indoors: Can be grown indoors under lights or a very bright window.

What about Grow Lights? Full-spectrum grow lights are required to harvest regularly indoors through winter.

Indoor Container Suggestions: Shallow trays work very well for micro or baby greens.

Winter Fertilizing: Plant in a composty mix.

Special Instructions: Indoor Mustards should be treated as a loose leaf, cut-and-come-again crop.
