AMARANTH PASSION ~ each fresh green leaf liberally doused with a rich plum red, a true bi-colour 50 seeds
SOW: in the spring & summer, you can start these in trays to plant out when they reach about 5cm tall after being hardened off. You can also start them in situ by sowing thinly. You can grow these as a baby leaf at any time of the year on a window sill.
GROW & EAT: form an eye-catching edible edge to a bed and used as a cut-and-come-again salad crop, start picking when they reach 10cm tall. Picking just above a leaf will encourage your plants to bush out quickly to be picked again. Larger leaves can be steamed, stir-fried or added to soup. We have enjoyed them as the leafy ingredient in saag. Please be aware that a few plants may have plain green leaves
