Like spring onions, 'spring greens' may be had almost all the year round, by using up-to-date varieties and sowing several times in succession. The traditional harvesting season is March and April, with plants started in late July in the north and early August in the south. Most varieties eventually produce solid hearts, and it is usual to transplant seedlings at close spacing so that alternate plants can be used as loose greens, leaving the others to mature as small hearted cabbages. In cold windy gardens, plants can be earthed up slightly in late autumn.
