Winter salad leaves are excellent value, especially oriental varieties
and they should be sown, now, in the autumn. These cut-and-come-again
salad leaves can be grown outside in the vegetable garden, in tubs or in
window boxes. They grow well in the cooler temperatures and lower light
levels of autumn.
Salad leaves to sow in autumn are:
small, mild tender leaves
Land Cress – Variegated Winter
crisp & tangy
Mizuna – good taste & crunchy stem
This patch of Mustard – variety Mizuna – is doing well in Yorkshire. The
center leaves are cut out with scissors, & provide fresh winter salad
leaves with a bite!
