Here is all the information you need for productive, healthy and tasty salads. Learn the subtleties of salad seasons and virtues of different leaves throughout the year. And when your table is groaning with the abundance of your harvests, there are delicious and imaginative recipes, exploiting the fantastic flavours, colour and vitality of home grown salad leaves.

Salad leaves are one of the quickest and easiest vegetables you can grow. More than that, plants that are well looked after will provide long successions of harvests, without having to repeatedly sow or plant again. How to continually crop the same plants and give them a surprisingly long life is a main theme of this book. Another key theme in the book is growing in small spaces and containers, which can be impressively productive. You may also find yourself appreciating the growing beauty of your range of salad plants, as much as their abundant contributions to the table. The leaves you pick will also be full of seasonal characteristics, reflecting how different salads give of their best at particular times of year.

Among Charles Dowding's several other books are: How to Grow Winter Vegetables and How to Create a New Vegetable Garden.
