Salad Greens



Plant all salad greens now and harvest by picking the leaves as needed.
Spring onions can be cut about 2cm from the base and they will ‘come again’ with another top. Try some cherry tomatoes in pots or hanging baskets. A good rich potting mixture is essential, and a handful of soil wetting agent will help to retain the water and keep the soil moist. Hang or place in a sunny, but not too hot position (afternoon shade is good) and water morning and night. Our strawberries are starting to flower and we are still harvesting cauli, silverbeet, miners lettuce, fennel, cabbage and spring onions.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
