Please Note

These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate

Little Gem is fast growing, making it a perfect contender as a catch-crop while waiting for longer-growing vegetables to mature. This mini variety is perfect for growing in containers and smaller gardenens, making it a perfect choice if you're a green finger gardener who has little green space and loves to grow your own.

For amazing crops of tasty, fresh and healthy produce, harvest during June and October.

SERVES 4

INGREDIENTS

For the salad

  • 4 little gem lettuce, roughly chopped
  • 1 jar of anchovies, in oil
  • ½ cucumber, finely sliced
  • Zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 2-4 tbsp Caesar dressing
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan, grated 

For the chicken

  • 2 chicken breasts, butterflied
  • 6-8 rashers of smoked streaky bacon
  • ½ fennel bulb, finely sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely sliced
  • Zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method:

  1. Marinade your chicken breast in oil, lemon, garlic, tarragon, salt and pepper. Then preheat a ridged griddle and cook your bacon. After 4-5 mins add the chicken and fennel. Grill for 3-4 mins on each side and then allow to rest.

  3. For the salad plate up on a large serving platter with the little gem lettuce, anchovies, cucumber, lemon and plenty of Caesar dressing. Finish with grated Parmesan.
  4. Add the toasted croutons, sliced chicken, caramelised fennel, and bacon. Serve iced cucumber and mint water and garnish with borage flowers.
