Which winter salad crops can be grown outside during the winter months? And what protection is needed?
Hi Henry. I use fleece, doubling it up if itâ€™s really cold, Iâ€™ve had a go at oriental and mustard greens, land cress, mizuna, and winter lettuce Marvel and Reine de Glace. Be interested to know what you decide to grow. Good Luck.
Winter lettuce are ideal if you have a polytunnel or outdoors under a cloche or mini-tunnel. Try Winter Marvel and Reine de Glace which can be sown in January as long as you sow under cover. Enjoy!
