Mustard and Wild Cabbage are annuals to winter hardy semiperennials with flat rosettes of aromatic, refreshingly spicy leaves, which are used in salads and the Mediterranean cookery. From several species the dry seeds are used to prepare table-mustard. All Mustard species are easily cultivated in any well drained, humus-rich soil in a sunny to partially shaded spot. The wild Canary cabbage species Brassica bourgeaui is a non winderhardy semi-perennial and requires a sunny frostfree spot in winter at a minimum of some 5°C with reduced watering.
Sow seeds from perennial species flat on any well drained , humus-rich soil in a sunny site. Cover seeds only slightly with soil, and keep pots at some 15°C to 20°C. Transplant to the garden as soon as seedlings are strong enough by the end of spring to mid summer. Seeds from annual species are best sowed directly to the ground in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot from spring to mid summer.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7, unless not stated differently.
100 seeds per package, unless not stated differently.
