Lettuce are quick growing and flourish in window boxes and pots or where space is an issue, and our range of ‘cut and come again’ Simply Salad Leaves do really well in hanging baskets too.
Within a few weeks you will be eating your own fresh salad crops.
*If you have a tunnel cloche, either glass or Perspex, lettuce can be planted into the ground a bit earlier as they will be protected from the harshest weather conditions.
Cutting the base off large clear plastic bottles works really well to use as individual covers for plants. This will protect them and keep them warm. On fine days you can unscrew the lids for ventilation.
* Slug and snail warning…. Pop some slug pellets down around young plants to avoid them being eaten, and check over every day. If you prefer a more organic approach, try putting a ring of sand/grit around your plants as they prefer not to travel across rough surfaces, but again check every day.
plants were good size , and have been planted in old wine boxes, will taste good , and look good
Plants coming on nicely and friends have appreciated them. Like all the plants I 've had from you excellent packaging and have arrived in good condition.
Good plants, but sadly, not all survived.
Have been purchasing from another supplier for a number of years but the standard of plants and packing had dropped, ordered from brookside and was very pleased with the quality, packing and delivery time, will use brookside for my online purchases from now onn.
Bit disappointed as all ten plants seem to be the same. I was hoping for some purple leaves and some rocket
Unfortunately was not delivered. Only told about poor germination when I had emailed and asked why they hadnt arrived? Also cant see voucher on my account. However, I am delighted with my other orders. Thank you.
These were potted on in greenhouse and grew rapidly,. Now planted outside under cover and thriving well. Looking forward to harvesting.
