Lettuce & Salad Vegetables

Growing salad vegetables – Rocket (Roquette/Arugula), Endive, Kale & Lettuce – is among the easiest and most rewarding gardening project.

Salad Veg is easy to grown. You can grow salad veg pretty much anywhere – beds, pots, on windowsills.Sow direct from seed. They prefer full sun and well-drained soil.

Salad veg can be grown all year round, but prefer Autumn through early Summer. They are sensitive to frost, and will bolt to seed in hot weather. (It will self-seed. You may wish to allow this to happen as the flowers attract bees to your garden).

Your salad veg will be ready to harvest in about 30 days from planting, so re-sow every 3 weeks for a continuous supply.
