a great satisfaction it is to grow and eat home grown vegetables.
One home favourite, due to its fast growth and subtle
flavour, is Pak Choi.
Pak Choi is a very fast growing vegetable that flourishes
in a hot and tropical climate. Pak Choi is jam packed full
of nutritious vitamins and loads of flavour, to compliment
any stir fry or as a side serving of delicious steamed vegetables.
SOIL & POSITION
Pak Choi loves a very rich soil in a full sun position. Improve
the soil before planting with 5 IN 1® Organic Plant
Food. Add approximately a 2-3cm layer of 5 IN 1® over
the soil and dig this in to a depth of about 10cm. Give this
a good watering and plant straight into it.
Now after youve planted out the Pak Choi, the trick
to a flavour rich and tender vegetable is regular watering.
They dont like to dry out for any lengths of time so
water every couple of days. By watering every 2-3 days, they
will grow beautifully and remain soft and tender. If they
are allowed to dry out for lengthy intervals, they can become
tough and bitter.
Pak Choi do not need much fertilising if you have prepared
the soil well in advance. To promote strong growth, fertilise
with SeaMax® Fish & Kelp liquid fertiliser, a fully
organic fertiliser that stimulates strong plant growth and
Growing Pak Choi is as easy and successful as that.
Improve soil with 5 IN 1® Organic Plant Food.
Water regularly every two to three days.
And fertilise with SeaMax® Fish & Kelp.
youll be able to enjoy sweet and tender Pak Choi all
