Talkback: How to grow salad leaves from seed

I grew the salad leaves last year and had a supply all through the summer, one of the nicest ways to get one over on the super markets, saved a little fortune over the summer, and always fresh.

  • Hello,
    I have looked at the guides on greenhouse tomatoes and they are very useful. I have grown three sorts of tomatoes Moneymaker (normal size), Legend (beefsteak) and cherry tomato too. Are they all treated the same in the greenhouse re removal of axilliary shoots, number of trusses and so on? Does one size fit all?
    Thanks
    Valerie
  • i just started to sow my seeds i let u know my comments when they grow i hope its nice to have this site for help with learning how to grow veg and care for them
  • Very useful, I havent got a garden, just a concrete yard and no experience of growing vegetables. This seems a nice easy way to start and they can be grown in a pot. Thanks Bridget
  • very good thank you, is there any kind of POT that you should NOT use to grow herbs and veg in ?
    Thanks Helen
  • very interesting. I would like to know how to pinch the tops out of the tomatoe plants and when to do it.
  • Can you grow these all year round?

    The quote function seems not to be working. Valerie, the basic mechanics of tomato growing are the same regardless of variety.

    Helen, a pot really just needs to be big enough to do the job you're asking of it and with adequate drainage. As to types of pots - smaller pots will dry out quicker than larger ones, plastic pots will dry out quicker than ceramic or terracotta.
