Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Slugs and snails can be a problem for Corn Salad. To prevent slug damage keep the area around the lettuces clean and dry as possible, especially during the night. Use barriers such as crushed egg shells or copper wire. If the problem is known then you can use specific slug-killing nematodes–make sure you read the instructions on the package. MORE

Water regularly

Water thoroughly in dry weatherMORE

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

Will grow well in a mix of three parts compost and one part topsoil. Corn salad will grow more foliage when planted in nitrogen rich compost.MORE

Feeding not required

Not required, but growing in nitrogen-rich compost or manure will help promote more foliage.MORE

Pruning not required

No pruning needed.MORE
