How to Sow
If you may still get late frosts in spring, sow your chicory in containers in a protected spot. Otherwise, you can sow after the last frosts where they are to grow.
How to Harvest
Cut the leaves any time you like. They’re a very attractive addition to winter salads. When mature, the plant will form a head much like a lettuce. Then it’s up to you to decide whether you’ll eat it just like that or whether you want to try blanching by excluding light.
