Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Tatsoi is generally disease-free, but insects love its tender leaves. Cabbage worms and flea beetles can riddle the leaves in spring unless the plants are protected with row covers. The ground-hugging leaves are extremely attractive to slugs, so barriers such as grit or copper wire may be beneficial.MORE

Water regularly

Water the plants regularly to keep the ground constantly moist. If you are unsure, feel the soil with your hand. If it feels dry up to a fingernail deep then you can give the plant a watering. During winter the cold weather and rain should be enough to keep the plant watered most of the time. MOREMORE

Full Sun

Plant in a position where the plants will receive around 6-8 hours of direct sunlight every day.MORE

Any fertile, well-draining soil

Provide a well-draining soil with a lot of compost or other organic matter mixed in. Tatsoi grows in soil with a pH from 6.0–7.5, with an ideal range of 6.5–7.0.MORE
