Endive ‘Dubuisson’ (Cichorium endivia)
A beautiful frisee endive with fine green leaves which are soft yellow in the centre. I plant seed from September until February and get a crop for much of the year as it is very slow to bolt.
Late winter until mid autumn
Where to sow: In a seed tray or direct in a prepared garden bed
Depth to sow: 5mm
Aspect: Full sun or as sunny a spot as possible.
Soil: Prepared, well drained, fertilised soil. Add lime if soil is too acid.
Spacing: Between plants 30cm Between rows 30cm
Directions: Raising plants in seed trays and planting out when 5cm tall brings good results in growing full size endives. They can also be sown straight into their permanent position in a prepared garden bed.
