CHICORY Cichorium intybus - Radicchio, Witloof, Belgian Endive, Endives  Chicory is closely related to endive ( Cichorium endivia ).But, where endive is a smooth leafed annual, chicory is a (usually) hairy leafed perennial. 'Puntarella' a 'Catalonga', or 'Italian Dandelion' type with dandelion like leaves can be sown and have leaves harvested in winter, but only in milder areas.

CHIVES Allium schoenoprasum Chives have a very very mild taste, they are easy to grow, relatively pest and disease free, take up very little space, are either universally liked or are so innocuous they are endured, and they have genuinely attractive little purple flowering heads. They die down over winter, and the tender,delicate grass like stems for snipping don't appear until spring. Chives clump up nicely, and you can lift and divide the clump in winter to make more plants. In very cold areas this is best left until spring.

CORN SALAD Valerianella locusta -Lambs Lettuce. Corn salad. Is a small, almost lawn daisy looking plant whose rosette of tender, mild, and pleasant little leaves are ready for harvest in winter.  It is easy to grow, and in fact, if left to seed, soon becomes a welcome weed. In summer, the plants soon will become affected with mildew, especially in the warmer areas, so it can be sown in winter, except in very cold areas. It goes to flower fairly quickly in spring. Grow about 100-150mm apart, in any good soil.

The beauty of chicory is that it requires very little preparation and there is almost no wastage. To enjoy it at its best, buy chicory when the leaf tips are yellow, if it has green tips it is likely to be too bitter for salads.
