GrowSmart in pots
Buy, recycle or make your own pots, ensuring they have sufficient drainage holes in the bottom. Place your pots in full sun and out of the wind if possible. Fill with seedraising mix or better still your own blend of soil, sand and compost.
Sow with seeds or seedlings of winter lettuces such as kale, rocket, cornsalad, spinach and beetroot to ensure a steady supply of fresh winter salads.
To make your garden grow...
Placing compost, worm castings or straw around the seedlings will help maintain warmth and moisture within the soil. Water as necessary (every second day is usually often enough).
Dress salads with freshly chopped chives, parsley, spring onions and a squeeze of lemon or other citrus for flavour and nutrient variation.
