‘Deck salad’ – an easy weekend project:

If you fancy stepping out onto your patio, courtyard or balcony and picking some healthy ingredients for a salad, then our easy ‘Deck salad’ project is for you!

Here’s what you’ll need:

What to grow:

Here’s how:

  1. Place the pot in a sunny position (at least 4 hours of sun a day is ideal). Fill the pot with potting mix up to around 5 cm from the top.
  2. Place your fingers across the top of the punnet and in between the bases of the seedlings and gently turn the punnet upside down, releasing the plants (with root ball attached). Gently separate the seedlings if required, retaining as many roots as possible.
  3. Dig small holes in the potting mix. The holes should be the same size as the root ball of your seedlings. Allow around 10 cm between each seedling.
  4. Place the seedlings into their holes and gently firm down the potting mix around the roots.
  5. Water over the seedlings to settle them in and then keep the potting mix moist.
  6. In a fortnight, start feeding each week with Yates Thrive® Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food, which will provide the vegies with a balanced diet of nutrients to promote lots of healthy growth.
  7. Harvest regularly! You can start picking individual leaves after just a few weeks. And the more you pick, the more leaves will grow.
  8. Enjoy your very own home grown ‘Veranda salad’!
