Pak Choi 'Dwarf Canton White' is a high yielding variety that has a compact habit.

Can be harvested young as 'baby leaf' or left to mature to thick succulent white stems great in stir fries.

Pak Choi is easy to grow, but can be prone to bolting in hot weather so it’s a good idea to grow it in partial shade and keep it well watered. Pak Choi is hardier than many other leafy crops, so late sowings will crop in autumn and even winter, if given a little protection with a cloche or some fleece. 

When to Sow Sow indoors from March to May for Summer harvesting or July to August to overwinter for a spring harvest the following year.
Where to Sow Sow seed thinly in a prepared seed bed in shallow drills 1.5cm (3/4") deep. Keep well watered. 
What to do next

Once the seeds have germinated, thin the seedlings to 8cm (3in) between each plant ensuring they are planted firmly in the soil. 

When the seedlings are between 6 and 8cm high ( 2.5 to 3in) high they are ready for transplanting to their final growing site.

Water well the day before transplanting and plant out where legumes grew the year before and the soil is nitrogen rich.
Draw earth up around the base of each stem to improve the plants stability.

Harvest April to October.
Handy Tips Keep well watered during summer months to prevent bolting.
Cover young plants with a protective netting or fleece to prevent attack from birds and insects. 
Companion Planting Mint: Useful against Aphids and Flea Beetles, Thyme: To ward off Cabbage worm. Also useful: Sage, Oregano, and Nasturtium.
Nutritional Information Excellent source of vitamins A, C and B, Iron and Potassium. The dark leaves contain the most nutrients. Low in calories!
Serving Suggestion Pak choi stalks can be consumed raw or cooked in Chinese stir-fried dishes and soups, where it is added toward the end of the cooking process.
