How to Grow & Harvest Salad Burnet

 


When to Plant

For best results, Salad Burnet should be started indoors 4-5 weeks before the last frost of the spring. Salad Burnet seeds are small and require light for germination.  Sow seeds shallowly and keep well moistened. Transplant outdoors after the last frost of the season.
 

How to Plant

Salad Burnet will grow to heights of a foot taller or more, and produce cucumber-flavored leaves only approximately 2 months after germination. Choose a location that is partial or filtered shade to full sun. It is tolerant of a wide range of soil types, but should always have well drained soil. 

 

When to Harvest

Wait until the plant has reached a height of 6-8" or more to ensure that the plant is stable. At that time, harvest the leaves by cutting them with scissors.   Leaves collected prior to blooming will have better taste.
