45 days — 'Tendergreen' is a variety of leafy green vegetable, closely related to 'Mizuna', called "Komatsuna" in Japan. Here in the United States, it is generally referred to and used as mustard greens, mustard spinach or spinach mustard. It is a delicious leafy green that is hardy, slow to bolt, easy to grow and a heavy producer.

Its dark green, shiny leaves have smooth edges with a flavor that is much more mild than common mustard greens. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 350 seeds.

Planting Instructions: Spinach and other greens thrive in cool spring and fall weather (50° F to 60° F). A few greens can handle summer heat, but most of them prefer the cooler temperatures of spring and fall. Most lettuce and greens can withstand occasional exposure to light frost but if very cold weather is coming, protect your plants with a frost cover.

Sowing: Prepare the seedbed outdoors using a hard tined rake, smoothening out the soil. Lightly sow and just barely cover the seeds with soil. Keep soil moist until germination is achieved. You can also start seeds indoors by sowing into seed starting trays using fresh new seed starting potting mix into clean seed starting trays. Just barely cover the seeds and keep well watered until they sprout. Harden off and transplant into the garden after about 3 weeks.
