Why plant salad seeds?
Seeds for salad leaves are easy to grow – and, believe it or not, they love the UK climate. It can take only around five to six weeks for some garden salad seeds to flourish – certain types of lettuce, for instance, and rocket leaves – so assuming you've coordinated your sow and harvesting timelines, you could be eating freshly grown salads through summer and beyond.
You won't go back to supermarket salads again after growing your own. Not only will you get the satisfaction of knowing you've nurtured your seeds into edible salads, but you can also enjoy the taste of fresh, homegrown leaves.
Plus, you're spoilt for choice with different varieties. Whether you enjoy crisp spinach, peppery rocket, or refreshing watercress, you can mix and match your salad seeds to your heart's content. Alternatively, you might prefer mixed salad leaves seed packets, which again can be easily grown in the UK.
Our salad seeds could mark the start of your next homegrown chapter.
What types of salad seeds are there?
Choosing from a broad selection means you're bound to find salads seeds that, when harvested, will make the perfect addition to your meals.
Our collection includes:
- Cress, which is low-maintenance and ideal for introducing little ones to gardening as it can be grown indoors and outdoors.
- Swiss chard in rhubarb, yellow, and as a combination of colours. These tasty, large, fleshy salad leaves aren't as tender as spinach but are less chewy than kale.
- Lettuce, including cos and little gem varieties, are again a good option for first-time gardeners. We also have organic lettuce salad seeds available.
