I live in Melbourne. Want to find an easy method of growing mizuna in a simple hydroponic set up under cover and hopefully grow right round the year. How long is the cropping period? What can be done to delay the plants going to seed? Your advice on this matter is much appreciated. Thanks. Hugo

Hugo, I live in Sydney and grow Mizuna hydroponically all year 'round. Typically I re-seed 3-4 times a year. If you harvest heavily the plants will re-shoot. I grow in cups of perlite and just sprinkle seeds sparingly on the medium. The perlite takes up the nutrient and the roots grow down through the perlite to the water level. Beware of excess heat though. Growth slows (but continues) through winter.
