Mizuna is a great Asian leafy green to grow in autumn, winter and early spring. It is easiest to grow it from seed and such a great plant for beginner gardeners. Grow it in a patio pot or apartment garden and pick the leaves as needed to make your own gourmet salad mix.

Our organic Mizuna Seed Packets include approximately 100 tiny seeds - you'll have plenty for successive sowings that will keep your family in Leeks throughout the season! 

What is Mizuna?

Mizuna (Brassica japonica) is a Japanese leafy green.  It is one of the best little leafy greens to plant for winter, but can also be grown in early spring. This cool-loving seedling is perfect for an apartment, small veggie patch or your Asian cuisine garden.

Culinary Uses for Mizuna

Mizuna is absolutely delicious in salads, with potatoes and lemon, cooked with meat or in traditional Japanese dishes (just pick the baby leaves as you need them).  The leaves have a fresh, mild taste.  

Growing Conditions - Mizuna 

  

Mizuna is such an easy-care plant - ideal for the newbie gardener! Sow it in part shade in rich free-draining soil and it will pretty much do the rest. While it prefers cooler weather, Mizuna will withstand some heat. 

Once established, Mizuna will tolerate a little wind and a mild frost.  While it likes the occasional watering, it will also tolerate a dry spell (this will increase the bitterness of the leaves). Carrots, celery, lettuce and onions are the perfect companion plants for this wee leafy green.

      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.
