Easy to grow, indoors, outdoors and all year round.
Salads make great catch crops and fill up the hungry gaps when there is little on the plot to eat.
Salads can be grown and eaten all year round, not just in the summer. Winter salads might not have fresh tomatoes but there is certainly no lack of flavour.
Salads are some of the easiest and quickest crops to grow and no plot or table should be without a good mix of salad.
