Growing Salad Crops
....freshness is the key
All vegetables are at their best when fresh, and this includes salad plants. The leaves are crispest and full of flavour straight after picking, so why not grow your own and reep the rewards.
Salad plants can be grown in pots and containers, or alternatively you can create your own salad bed that is both attractive and productive. But either way, make sure you choose a sunny position where the plants can thrive. You can grow a variety of lettuces; the mixed seed collections can be sown in batches and are particularly good value.
