Cultivation advice for Growing Super Green Chop Suey from Seed

  • Can be sown and grown indoors in pots, containers and window boxes in a location that gets plenty of light like a windowsill or conservatory.
  • The germination period takes between 7 to 10 days and fully matures between 30 to 90 days. Press the seeds into the soil gently and cover them with a fine layer of soil. During the germination period keep the soil moist but well drained.
  • Can be sown directly outdoors, avoiding the hotter months as this will make the chop suey bloom faster and this will affect the taste and texture.
  • Once the shoots reach a height between 15 to 20cm they are ready to harvest, smaller stems and leaves will be more tender and have better flavour.
  • Seeds can be sown at two different times of the year, firstly from March to May and then from September to October.
