Updates - The GARDEN POST, Part Two

The Assistant Gardener Lloyd Page

Shiso or, The Little Herb That Could. Need we remind you this plant started as two tiny cuttings from a package of supermarket shiso. Only a month ago!

Ditto success with rooted cuttings re: rau ram (above). A couple of humble stalks have flourished into a plant demanding re-potting monthly.

Sorry for the blurriness but a few new additions to the herb and salad garden include Baby Gem lettuce, radicchio, curly endive, calendula and salad burnet.

Mizuna may be the easiest green to grow. Ever. Often called Japanese mustard, this is one versatile vegetable - when young the tender leaves enhance green salads or serve as mildly spicy verdant garnishes. Left to grow up to lengths of 8" or taller, mizuna can be quickly stir-fried in the same manner as spinach of Swiss chard.

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and
let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure
why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
