How To Grow Sugar Loaf Chicory From Seed: Sugarloaf Chicory is an ideal vegetable to sow a little later in the year, as it can withstand mild frosts. 

Sow directly outside from May onwards. Thin out the seedlings to leave a spacing of 30cm between each plant.

Harvest the leaves from the outside as needed, or cut the whole head when it fully develops. The inner leaves will be yellow due to a lack of sunlight exposure. All of the leaves are good to eat.
