- USDA hardiness zones:
Also known as Miner's Lettuce or Winter Purslane.
This cool-season leafy green can overwinter in zones 6 and warmer, and while it's a lovely compliment to the garden, use caution seeding in those warmer zones as it's freeseeding and can become hard to control.
Sow seeds 4 to 6 weeks before your region's last frost. Continue to do so through midspring and then again at the end of summer through the middle of fall to get greens through winter. Seeds are sown only ¼ inch (6 mm) deep and just a little further apart in rows at least 8 inches (20 cm) apart. Harvest single leaves off plants thinned at least 4 inches (10 cm) apart or cut handfuls and allow to regrow from closer plants which can be spaced as close as 2 inches (1 cm). Watch out during hotter weather as the flavor can get bitter.
