Seedball Salad Mix is collection of fast-growing scrumptious frilly salad, including salad rocket, kale, green and red mustard and cress.
Each Seedball Salad Mix ball contains around 30 seeds, which can be grown indoors on a sunny windowsill (keep well watered) or in a garden bed or pot.
Each tin contains 20 balls, which will cover 3-5 medium sized pots – it’s best to keep at least 10cm between scattered balls 🙂 Scatter at any time from early Spring until late Autumn. Enjoy!
How do I use Seedballs?
Throw onto soil or compost in a garden bed or planter in Spring or Autumn, leaving at least 10cm between each ball. Your Seedball has everything it needs to grow and, once the ball becomes moist and the temperature is right, your seeds will then germinate!
Cress (Greek – Lepidium sativum)
A versatile salad item with a nice peppery flavour.
Kale (Red russian – Brassica oleracea)
Kale is also one of the most nutritious leafy vegetables you can find. Packed full of vitamins, antioxidants and iron! It can be eaten raw (best when leaves are young or steamed) or added to stir fry recipes.
Mustard (Green frills – Brassica juncea)
Spice up your salads and sandwiches with these bright green shoots which become serrated as they grow.
Mustard (Red frills – Brassica juncea)
The attractive and sweet leaves are finely serrated when young, then look more like mizuna when mature. The fringer burgundy-red leaves add the taste of mustard and horseradish to salads, stir fry recipes and sandwidches.
Salad rocket (Dentellata – Eruca vesicaria ssp. sativa)
A lovely peppery flavour to salad, the younger leaves are milder, more tender and palatable. Leaves can also be lightly cooked as a delicious spinach substitute, added to sauces, stir fried or sautéed.
