Winter salad leaves are excellent value, especially oriental varieties
and they should be sown, now, in the autumn. These cut-and-come-again

window boxes. They grow well in the cooler temperatures and lower light
levels of autumn.

Salad leaves to sow in autumn are:

center leaves are cut out with scissors, & provide fresh winter salad
leaves with a bite!
