Pak Choi F1 Goku Seeds
25 Pak choi F1 goku seeds. A slow bolting hybrid, ideal for spring and early summer plantings. Attractive glossy green leaves with long petioles that form high quality neat heads. Quick to bulk up but also holds well for flexibility at harvest time. Pak choi is easy to grow, but can be prone to bolting in hot weather so it’s a good idea to grow it in partial shade and keep it well watered. Pak choi is hardier than many other leafy crops, so late sowings will crop in autumn and even winter, if given a little protection with a cloche or some fleece.

|Sow Inside (before transplanting)
Sow seed in moist compost in small pots or cells. You can also sow direct in the ground, but seedlings can be devoured by slugs.
Thin out young seedlings to two per pot and keep them well watered.
When seedlings are 5cm tall, plant them out into a moisture-retentive soil, firming in well.
Water the newly transplanted plants and keep them
well watered to prevent bolting. Cover the crop with horticultural fleece to provide a barrier to airborne pests, such as flea beetles.
You can harvest the young leaves after 30 days, to add to salads. From 45 days, the plants should have developed a ‘heart’ and be ready to harvest for stir fries. Pak choi is most succulent and has the best flavour when eaten fresh from the plot, so only harvest what you need, when you need it.
