For those gardeners without a garden, there’s still a way to keep in practice.  Growing your own salad leaves is a great way to add a bit of greenery to your kitchen windowsill and, in time, will provide you with one of your ‘five-a-day’.

All you’ll need is a seed tray, some seed compost and a pack of mixed salad leaves of your choice.

There’s plenty of seed suppliers online that offer a delivery service, so you won’t even need to step outside to get started with your new windowsill garden. Suttons and Seedparade and two online options, you could also search for your local garden centre online.

How can I help someone to do this?

You could offer to help with any necessary online ordering (seeds, seed trays etc.).
