What a great satisfaction it is to grow and eat home grown vegetables. One home favourite, due to it’s 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 Fertiliser. Add approximately a 2-3cm layer of 5 IN 1 over the soil and dig this into a depth of about 10cm. Give this a good watering and plant straight into it.
Now, after you’ve planted out the Pak Choi, regular watering is the trick to flavour-rich and tender vegetables. They don’t like to dry out for any length of time, so water every couple of days. By watering every 2-3 days, they will grow beautifully and remain soft and tender. They can become tough and bitter if allowed to dry out for lengthy intervals.
Pak Choi does not need much fertilising if you have prepared the soil well in advance. To promote strong growth, fertilise with SeaMax Organic Fertiliser, a fully organic fertiliser that stimulates strong plant growth and health.
