Corn Salad (also called Mache) is a tender salad green that grows best in cool weather. It is one of the first vegetables to sprout in the spring, which makes it a very welcome sight.

How to grow Corn Salad from Seed
# 1 | Corn Salad is sown in rows, so you’ll need to hollow out small trenches in moist soil about ½ inch deep. Space each trench about 8-10 inches apart.
# 2 | Sow your corn salad seeds inside each row, and cover with soil or garden mix
# 3 | Water daily in the mornings or cooler part of the day. If your corn salad seeds are in direct sunlight, it will be best to water the seeds twice a day.
# 4 | Expect your corn salad to germinate in 14 -18 days
