Here’s a great collection of seeds which can be sown indoors in a cool greenhouse or conservatory for delicious winter salads. Ideally suited to fill in space in the greenhouse now that you are clearing out those summer crops.
Sow in containers or direct in the border within the greenhouse and you’ll be picking salads in as little as 5 weeks, dependant upon variety.
During extreme winter weather plants may benefit from a fleece blanket held over the crop and avoid watering too much to keep the plants – on the dry side.
Ventilate your greenhouse on warm days to allow ‘a good breeze’ to blow through which reduces risk of disease.
Ensure the greenhouse glass is clear of any debris to allow maximum winter light penetration.
