Growing winter salads is a great way of extending the growing season. 

Whilst the harvesting quantities may be less than during the summer months, by choosing a good selection of seeds there will be goodies to harvest just outside the back door right through until the spring.

Take a look at the Winter Salad Selection Pack  from Recycleworks.  Included are some tasty salad leaves, radishes, rocket, American land cress and winter greens. 

Sow in a Salubrious Salad Bed or one of these Willow Salad Planters, and position just outside the kitchen door for easy harvesting during the colder days.
