Jane recommended trying to grow salad leaves or “oriental greens” which are best sown after the summer solstice.
“That’s things you get in your salad bags like mizuna, mibuna, pak choi, those lovely spicy leaves do best when sown after the solstice,” she said.
The greens grow very quickly and can be grown inside small pots or containers quite easily.
If you’re looking to sow something more traditional like beetroot or carrots, Jane said to look for varieties that say ‘early’.
This may sound slightly odd, but Jane explained that if you buy seeds that have got a short window of ripening and getting ready to harvest, then that works best.
