Summer Purslane – (Organic)
A healthy salad plant with thick, succulent and oval leaves best grown over the summer months. This is a great salad vegetable undergoing a revival in popularity. It has crisp, fleshy leaves and a refreshing mild and sweet flavour.
This inconspicuous plant is often thought of as a weed but should actually be considered a superfood providing a good source of iron and vitamin A, B, C, and E. It is one of the best plant sources of Omega 3 fatty acids.
It makes a tasty addition in a salad for its unusually pleasant texture and can also be cooked like spinach.

Lettuce – Red Salad Bowl (Organic)£1.98 – £3.00 Select options
Lettuce – Red Salad Bowl (Organic)
Fast growing lettuce with long, burgundy red and deeply cut leaves.. This lettuce is known for its excellent taste and resistance to bolt. It has a non-heading growth habit with sweet, succulent oakleaf type leaves. We love it for its tenderness and cheerfulness in salads. As the name suggests one lettuce is usually enough to fill a whole salad bowl.
Best grown in spring, early summer and fall. However it can be grown in the hotter summer months too as it’s slow to bolt.
‘Red Salad Bowl’ was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit (AGM) in 1993.

Turnip – Goldana (Organic)£1.65 Add to basket
Turnip – Goldana (Organic)
An improved version of the Golden Ball turnip, creamy-yellow flesh, suited for spring and autumn sowing. Turnips are very traditional vegetables which, unlike most of the vegetables we eat, are native to Europe. For some reason they are not as popular as they used to be.
Goldana is a tasty maincrop variety with a uniform golden round shape, probably one of the mildest and sweetest varieties that you can find. It is quick to grow and doesn’t need much attention. “Get them in, get them out” is what Fred says. He likes them in soups or stews but they can also be roasted, mashed or grated into a slaw or salad.

Kohlrabi – Superschmelz (Organic)
A light-green kohlrabi that will remain tender and sweet to a huge size. If left to grow it can reach up to 8kg. It is resistant to bolting and splitting.
Fred has been growing Superschmelz kohlrabi for years. “It gets huge, it stores really well AND it stays tasty and crunchy!” is his verdict.
We think kohlrabi is best eaten raw in salads or straight from the garden. It is also nice pickled or added to stews and stir fries.
