All-Season Salad Garden Kit

R525.00

Once you indulge in the joy of sampling your own homegrown salad greens, it’s highly unlikely you will ever be caught rummaging through the salad refrigerators of a supermarket, in an attempt to locate the least wilted head of lettuce. With homegrown salads you discover a whole new palate of flavours you never expect to find in the humble lettuce leaf. Nutty, spicy, tangy, zesty and earthy are just a few that spring to mind. However it is only when you get to taste them truly fresh, and by truly fresh, I literally mean harvested no more than a couple of hours before it reaches the plate, and unrefrigerated that their true integrity of flavours are revealed.

If you are reading this, and live in a concrete jungle without an inch of soil around you, please don’t be alarmed. We have already anticipated your dilemma and compiled the seed varieties in this kit in such a way that it can easily be cultivated in containers.
