I'm new to the forum so I thought i'd start off with a question
Next spring I intend to plant a proper section in my garden dedicated to salad leaves and salad herbs, But I want to do this with a view to permaculture so I can basically just make up a seed mix and sow, and let nature do the rest!
So what would you add to the seed mix? I'm a complete amature so any help is appreciated!
I'm thinking like:
couple of types of lettuce rocket herbs and clover as a nitrogen fixer?!
I'll second miner's lettuce and add purslane. There are a couple selections of purslane (Garden purslane and Golden purslane from territorial seed) available that grow more upright and have nice big leaves.
Purslane is at it's best after the lettuce has pooped out from the heat.
