Home Living : April 13th 2010
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, April 13, 2010 The time is ripe for greens HOMELIVING In the garden Judy Horton is an adviser for Yates Lettuce and other salad greens are usually easier to grow during the cooler months. When it's warm they tend to rush to flower and set seed, which spoils their flavour, but autumn and early winter are ideal growing seasons for most leafy vegies. Lettuce, especially the smaller-growing varieties such as mignonette or coral, don't need much root depth so they'll grow happily in a pot outside the kitchen door. This makes them easy to look after, and even easier to pick fresh when they're needed. Instead of using a pot, you can beg or borrow a couple of those styrofoam broccoli boxes that come with their own built-in insulation. Just check to make sure they have sufficient drainage holes. Poke extra holes in the base if necessary. Use a good potting mix and mix in some organic fertiliser (such as Dynamic Lifter) before planting. Don't let the lettuce dry out as this checks their growth. And water every couple of weeks with a liquid food. As soon as they're large enough, begin plucking and using the outer leaves. Other salad greens thatcangonoware rocket, endive and spring onions. Parsley, while not always classed as a salad component, grows well in autumn and brings a piquant flavour to many dishes, hot or cold. Other vegies also enjoy growing in the cool. Spinach, broadbeans, kale, peas, turnips and parsnips can all be planted in beds or containers at this time of year.
