Freshly-picked, home grown salad ingredients are full of flavour and much more nutritious than supermarket produce that’s already several days old when it hits the shelves. 

Quick and easy to grow from seed, if you sow at regular intervals you’ll guarantee a constant supply of delicious crops all summer long. Still not convinced? Here are just some of the benefits of growing your own salad…

  1. Freshly picked, seasonal salad is crisp, tasty and healthy 
  2. You don’t need to use any chemicals 
  3. It’s cheaper and more convenient than a trip to the supermarket
  4. It’s fun and satisfying to grow 
  5. Only picking what you need each day means far less waste 
  6. With no air miles, home grown salad is kind to the environment
  7. It’s not wrapped in plastic

You don’t need a huge garden to grow your own salads. In fact all of these seeds have been specially chosen because they’re suitable for container growing – no veg patch or greenhouse required! Here’s more information about the special bundle of Suttons salad seeds you could win:
