Seed Collection from Sow Seeds Ltd
This vegetable seed collection includes 5 of our favourite varieties of salad leaf, complete with full sowing instructions. The collection is elegantly wrapped in a band making an ideal gift for gardening friends or relatives.
Salad leaves are no longer considered just a garnish for decoration on the side of a dinner plate - a handful of different salad leaves can now add contrasting flavours, textures and inviting colours to your salad bowl.
So what could be fresher or healthier than picking and choosing varieties that suit your taste with just the right quantity you require for that meal. A few snips of peppery rocket, a colourful bunch of mustard ruby streaks and a few baby-leaves of crunchy Spinach or Mizuna create a colourful rich salad bowl. Add in a few micro-leaves like Radish Rambo or Alfalfa to give that added punch of flavour or colour. Salad leaves are easy to grow and by sowing seeds little and often should see you right through from early spring to late winter.
A handful of fresh leaves snipped as and when you require is certainly less expensive, lasts longer and is fresher than a pre-packed bag of leaves from the supermarket that go wet, limp & soggy very quickly.
Our Salad Days Seed Collection is an excellent basis for a salad bowl and different seasonal variations can be added to through the year. It is ideal for containers or small gardens or for those who just love their home grown salad leaves picked fresh from the garden and on their plate within minutes.
This collection includes the following 5 seed varieties:
- Corn Salad (Lambs lettuce) - fleshy thick green leaves with a delicate nutty flavour
- Landcress - mildly spicy flavour similar to watercress
- Mustard Ruby Streaks - feathery red leaves with a mild mustard flavour
- Mibuna - mild mustard flavour with green spoon shaped leaves.
- Rocket Discovery - easy to grow, peppery leaves liven up a salad.
