How to grow Bok Choy

How to grow Bok Choy

Learn how to grow Bok Choy with our step by step guide. These quick growing vegetables can be grown all year round in gardens throughout the country. In very cold areas avoid planting in mid winter.

Bok Choy is a quick and easy to grow crop that can mature in as little as 6 weeks.

Bok Choy Varieties:

There are many varieties, though the most common is the white bok choy which has a thick white stem and smooth round leaves.

When, where and how to plant Bok Choy

  • Sow direct or purchase seedlings from a garden centre.
  • Grow in a raised bed. Dig in plenty of organic matter and dress the soil lightly with lime.
  • Space plants 20-30cm apart. Soil needs to be well dug over prior to planting.
  • Plant in full sun for maximum flavour and growth.
  • Bok Choy plants will grow in shady areas but can become leggy and bitter when they don’t get enough sunlight.

Bok Choy Growing Guide:

Keep well watered through the dry periods, once planted protect from slugs, snails with slug and snail bait.

Bok Choy Harves

Harvest once plants are big enough. In some cases you can trim the plant 5 cms above the base and the more heads of Bok Choy will grow.

How to use Bok Choy

The stems are crisp and juicy and the leaves are a bit like cabbage or silver beet. All types of bok choy are suitable for quick cooking methods such as steaming and stir-frying. Use in the same way as you would cabbage or spinach.
