Here’s the simplest way for consumers to grow and enjoy mixed salads, and for growers and retailers to capitalize on the big demand for vegetables! Each SimplySalad pellet contains a tasty, good-looking mix of greens that can be grown in 4 to 6-in./10 to 15-cm pots and colour bowls, then enjoyed as both a colourful, mixed-texture ornamental and a delicious, nutritious edible. Gardeners can harvest every 3 weeks by cutting back to 2 in./ 5 cm and regrow several times for more fresh salads. On the bench, SimplySalad is easy to produce with a very quick crop time, perfect for early Spring and Autumn programs. Multi-pellets are efficient to sow in plugs or direct to the final container, and since varieties can’t separate in the seed hopper, the multi-pellet assures a well-balanced mix with one sowing. Produces more vivid colours when finished cool. For the consumer, SimplySalad performs best in full sun
in cool weather, or partial shade as temperatures warm up.

Traditional mix of red and green lettuces that are easy on the palate.

SALAD SIMPLY CITY GARDEN MIX

Germination
Mixes may include: Lactuca sativa, Brassica spp., Eruca sativa, Cichorium spp. and Chrysanthemum coronarium

Media
Use a well-drained, disease-free soilless media with a pH of 5.8-6.2 and an EC of 0.75 mmhos/cm (2:1 extraction).

Sowing
SimplySalad can be sown into 105/128 cell size plug tray or directly sown into finish containers. A light cover of coarse vermiculite helps maintain moisture
levels while letting light pass through to the seeds for improved germination. Total crop time can be reduced by 1 week by directly sowing into the final container.

Stage 1 – Germination takes approximately 2 to 3 days

Germination temperature: 65 to 73°F (18 to 22°C)

Light: Light is optional.

Media Moisture: Keep the media medium wet (level 4) during germination.

Relative Humidity: SimplySalad can be germinated on bench. As long as the soil is kept evenly moist, high air humidity is not required for germination.

Plug Production

Media

Relative Humidity: SimplySalad can be germinated on bench. As long as the soil is kept evenly moist, high air humidity is not required for germination.

Stage 2

Temperature: 68 to 70°F (20 to 21°C)

Light: Can be up to 2,500 f.c. (26,900 Lux) during Stages.

Media Moisture: Keep the media medium (level 3) to medium wet (level 4) during stage 2.

Fertilizer: Apply fertilizer at rate 1 (less than 100 ppm N/less than 0.7 mS/cm EC) with a nitrate-form fertilizer with low phosphorous. Maintain a media pH of 5.8 to
6.2 and EC at 0.5 to 0.7 mS/cm (1:2 extraction).

Stage 3

Temperature: 65 to 67°F (18 to 19°C)

Light: Can be up to 2,500 f.c. (26,900 Lux)

Media Moisture: Moisture level can be reduced to medium to medium dry (level 3 to 2). Do not allow the seedlings to wilt.

Fertilizer: Increase the fertilizer rate to 2 (100 to 175 ppm N/ 0.7 to 1.2 mS/cm EC). Maintain a media pH of 5.8 to 6.2 and EC at 0.7 to 1.0 mS/cm (1:2 extraction).

Stage 4

Temperature: 62 to 64°F (16 to 17°C).

Light: Can be up to 5,000 f.c. (54,000 Lux)

Media Moisture: Moisture level can be reduced to medium to medium dry (level 3 to 2). Do not allow the seedlings to wilt.

Fertilizer: Keep the fertilizer rate to 2 (100 to 175 ppm N/ 0.7 to 1.2 mS/cm EC). Maintain a media pH of 5.8 to 6.2 and EC at 0.7 to 1.0 mS/cm (1:2 extraction).

Growth Regulators
None

Growing On to Finish
Media
Use a well-drained, disease-free soilless media with a pH of 5.8 to 6.2 and an EC of 0.75 mmhos/cm

Temperature
Nights: 56 to 61°F (13 to 16°C).
Days: 62 to 70°F (16 to 21°C).
Cooler temperatures with high light will enhance foliage colors, but if average daily temperatures (ADT) are below 50ºF (10ºC), crop time could be significantly
delayed.
To achieve faster production with good foliage color, SimplySalad can be grown at moderate to warm temperatures (55 to 70ºF/13 to 21ºC), and then
finished at 45 to 55ºF (7 to 13ºC) for 3 to 5 days. Colored varieties develop pigment very quickly at cooler temperatures.

Light
As high as possible, while maintaining moderate temperatures. Provide shade to reduce temperatures under warmer conditions.

Irrigation
Maintain media moisture.

Fertilizer
Apply fertilizer at rate 3 (175 to 225 ppm N/1.2 to 1.5 mS/cm) once a week. A balanced ammonium and nitrate-form fertilizer may be applied as needed to
encourage growth and balance the media pH.

Growth Regulators
None

Pinching
Pinching is not needed.
