Aries is a lovely crisp leaved ball shaped vegetable with a rich Italian style flavour suitable for both fresh eating and cooking. It has very attractive green and red leaves and intense sky blue flowers. It makes an attractive adition to any garden. The young leaves are eaten in tossed salads, and cooked leaves used similarly to spinach in stirfries and quiches etc. They have a similar flavour to mild dandelion. The plant is great at breaking up clay soils as it has a very strong, thick tap root. Cultivate by starting like lettuce by direct seeding or transplanting. Suitable for growing anytime during the season. For full-size bunches, space 15-20cm apart and clip leaves at any stage but especially when young and less than 25cm tall. For salad mix, direct seed thickly. Unharvested plants will eventually make a flower stalk with the characteristic blue chicory flowers. Apply liquid fertiliser every two weeks. QTY 0.40 g approx 240 seeds
