What is Mesclun?

Mesclun was traditionally a Provençal mix of baby leafy greens that add texture, colour and flavour to salads.  Indeed, the word means a 'mixture'. Today, the term has evolved to include various mixes of quick-growing edible leaves that are picked when young and tender.  Our Mesclun mix includes lots of delicious summer greens to brighten up your salads:

  • Endive
  • Corn Salad
  • Rocket
  • Chicory/Radicchio
  • Oakleaf Lettuce
  • Curled Green Lettuce
  • Curled Red Lettuce.

This mix would fit in well with a Mediterranean setting, apartment pots, coastal or cottage garden settings.  

Culinary Uses for Mesclun Greens

Our Mesclun blend is so convenient for cooks with busy lives who want a ready and varied source of leafy greens for interesting salads.   

Growing Conditions - Mesclun

 

Mesclun is very easy care - even beginner gardeners will find these plants hard to kill! This particular mix includes lots of cool-loving Asian greens, which are likely to survive into the winter months in mild climates like Northland or Coromandel.

Mesclun greens can generally handle a little wind, a light frost, or a dry spell once established.  However, they grow best in sun - part shade, rich free draining soil and with regular watering to moisten the soil.  Tomatoes, Onions, Chives, Garlic and Raspberries make good companion plants.

Climate and seasonal information

This Mesclun mix can be sown any time from spring through to early autumn, and is suitable for both cooler and warmer areas.

      We offer a replacement guarantee

      To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  

       

      Where do you deliver to? 

      We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

      South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

      While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

      We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?

      Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
