AMARANTH RED ARMY ~ vibrant cherry red leaves make a statement in your plot, use in salads or cooked. 50 seeds
SOW: in the spring and 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.
GROW: you can plant these to form an edible edge to a bed and use as a cut-and-come-again salad crop, start picking when they reach 10cm tall. Allow some plants to grow larger for adding to stir fry or oriental soup. Leave a few plants to grow large and enjoy their upright fountain like flower stems from mid-summer to the autumn. Please be aware that a few plants may have green foliage
EAT: looks wonderful in the garden or on your plate, slightly nutty delicate flavour.
