Endive Growing Guide
Crop Rotation Group
Rich, moisture-retentive soil with plenty of compost dug in.
Sun preferred but tolerant of some shade.
Not usually required.
Single Plants: 9" (25cm) each way (minimum)
Rows: 7" (20cm) with 11" (30cm) row gap (minimum)
Sow and Plant
Sow directly into soil in late spring.
Our Garden Planner can produce a personalized calendar of when to sow, plant and harvest for your area.
Can blanch a few plants at a time when they are grown by excluding light from them for a few days. This can make them less bitter.
Havest as required by cutting off at base. Will sometimes resprout.
