Mustard is a stunning and delicious crop for the shoulder seasons. Red Carpet Mustard has attractive and delicate, finely serrated leaves, adding a peppery warmth to your salads and sandwiches. It is simple to grow and largely pest-free. A punchy low fuss plant that stands out in any dish.

This mildly spiced Mustard has beautiful burgundy plume edged foliage, held on wasabi green stems and veins. The flavour is mild and sweet, allowing its liberal use in gourmet combinations. Mustard Red Carpet is an excellent variety for growing as a microgreen, baby leaf, or mature leaf production. The deep and stunning red colour is prominent throughout all stages of growth and is easy to grow.

How to grow Mustard Green Frills from seed

Mustard is extremely versatile, so scatter seeds in a tray for spicy microgreens, a pot on the kitchen windowsill for baby leaf salad greens or sow direct where they are to grow. Alternatively, as we prefer, sow seeds in biodegradable thin wall coco pots, which will allow the roots to grow through for quick establishment in the garden bed.

Start mustard seeds off indoors, year-round, in one or two week intervals for a continuous supply. Your seeds will germinate anywhere between 8 and 30 degrees, making this a low fuss seed to germinate. Once a few leaves have developed and the plant has put on some weight (making it less prone to damage from high winds), plant out, pot and all, in the garden. Alternatively, sow direct into a pot on the windowsill for a quick and easy addition to a salad or meal.

Keep mustard well watered, especially in summer, as they are a cool-season crop. Without protection, mustard can bolt (turn to seed) and go bitter when temperatures are high.

Harvest your Green Frills Mustard as a baby leaf from day 20 or from 45 days as a mature plant. Whenever harvesting cut and come again plants, avoid damaging the stem by always using scissors or a sharp knife to remove the leaves.

What to feed your mustard plants

Mustard will do well in any reasonably fertile soil; however, growth is faster and larger if well fed. Amend the area prior to transplanting with a good mix of rotten farmyard manure and fish, blood and bone meal, with some volcanic rock dust and kelp powder to give them a rich, balanced and diverse diet released over the season for strong organic growth. Stronger, healthier plants are also less attractive to attacking insects.

Keeping pests away

Like the oriental mustard varieties, Mustard Red Carpet can be largely left alone in the garden once it's passed the seedling stage. Starting your seeds off indoors and planting out when robust enough, makes this an incredibly easy plant to care for. When ordering Mustard Red Carpet seeds from Grow Sow Greener, we reccomend sowing marigold seeds. A beautiful plant in its own right, you can plant marigolds close by to deter nematodes and attract beneficial insects which prey on pests, while boosting pollination for your other fruit and veg.
