    Default Easy Spacing For Cut & Come Again Salad Leaves.

    I think we all know that cut and come again salad leaves aren't the easiest of thing's to sow thinly, or is it just me that has them growing in big clumps?
    So I've put some of the little jar's you can buy dried herbs in to good use (see below), I've filled them with my salad leaves, rocket and spicy salad mix. All I have to do now is flip the lid and sprinkle...Simple's

    Smart@rse...... now why didn't I think of that. I put peas in with mine but they're big enough to poke in first before the sprinkle.

    Sorry Hon it's already been done. A customer of mine has mixed annual and perennial flower seeds in a shaker. She has just refilled it with seeds of her choice only this week.

    Still a fab idea though!
