Corn Salad (Valerianella Locusta) - 100 Seeds
Corn salad, also called Mache, is a tender leafy green that grows best in cool weather. It's one of the first vegetables to grow in the spring, which makes it a welcome sight. Although mache grows wild in many areas and has its share of common names, including lamb's lettuce and field lettuce, there are several mache varieties with larger leaves and sweeter flavors that have been bred for backyard gardens.

For warmer climates, it is recommended to start the Corn Salad seeds directly outdoors in early fall. The plants will put on some growth throughout the fall, but when the spring comes it will be bountiful and will be an early source for fresh greens. For cold climates, start the Mache herb seeds outdoors as soon as the soil can be worked in late winter or early spring. Plant the herb seeds in soil that is rich in organic matter.
