We have selected these 5 varieties which are perfect for growing indoors in a cool greenhouse or conservatory for delicious winter salads. Excellent to fill the place in your greenhouse after clearing out your summer crops.
Sow these varieties into containers or directly in the greenhouse borders and expect harvests in as little as 5 weeks depending on the variety.
If experiencing extreme weather your winter salad plants may benefit from extra protection such as a fleece blanket over the crops. Also avoid over watering to keep the plants slightly dry.
On particularly warm days it's best to keep your greenhouse ventilated to allow a breeze to blow through which helps keep your plants fresh and disease free.
Ensure you glass is clean and clear of debris to allow maximum winter sunlight to reach your plants.
