Mixed Salad - Organic Growing Guides for Teachers + Students + Schools - One Pot Pledge

Photography © Ray Spence Mixed Salad Baby leaf summer salads are quick and easy to grow in a window box, wide pot or tray. Buy a packet of mixed seed to grow a lovely mixed salad from one sowing, in only a few weeks. Sow every 3-4 weeks for a continuous supply. One sowing should give two cuts. Home grown, mixed baby leaf salad beats anything you can buy – for freshness and flavour. There are lots of mixtures to choose, or you can just go for a selection of lettuces. Pick or cut when 8-10cm tall, rinse and serve an impressive instant salad. Suggested pot size: wide pot or tray, minimum 5-10 cm deep. Photography © Ray Spence All salad crops listed as ‘baby leaf’ or ‘cut and come again’ can be grown in this way. Some to try: ‘Saladini mixture’ – lettuce, endive, chicory ‘French blend’ – rocket, chervil, corn salad and red lettuce ‘Salad bowl’ and ‘Red salad bowl’ - green and red leaved lettuce ‘Leaf Salad’ – Red Cos, Batavia and Oak-leaf lettuce Plant 1. Fill pot or tray with moist compost and firm gently. 2. Sprinkle seed evenly over the surface, 2-3cm apart. 3. Cover with a 0.5cm layer of compost. 4. Water well. 1  Gently pull out excess seedlings, leaving the rest about 4-5cm apart. 2. You can eat the seedlings you have pulled out. Grow Eat Mixed Salad Growing tips Practice sowing seeds evenly over a piece of paper, before sowing into the pot. Grow in a light, airy spot outdoors, or on a cool light windowsill. Keep containers in a light shade in hot weather. Fill a seed tray or pot, 5-10cm deep, with moist compost. Sprinkle seeds evenly over the surface, aiming for 3-4cm between seeds. Cover with a thin layer of compost and water well. Keep out of sun in hot weather. Compost to use: Multipurpose, organic and peat-free. Watering tips: Covering the pot with clear plastic, glass or cling film will keep the compost moist until the seedlings come up. Will need regular watering if growing in a shallow tray. Water well after first picking to encourage a second harvest. 1.  When the plants are around 8-10cm tall, start harvesting. 2.  Pick individual leaves, or cut them off, leaving a short stump of plant, which should grow again once or twice.
