Grow­ing minia­ture greens

A tow­er­ing dis­play of ed­i­ble seedlings makes a fresh ad­di­tion to the kitchen ta­ble

tINY ED­I­BLE GREENS are easy to grow, and a planter com­prised of stacked pots is an ideal way of sav­ing space. A mix of bowls and jelly moulds of vary­ing shapes and sizes are filled with pot­ting mix and planted with seeds. The con­tain­ers are placed on top of each other in or­der of de­scend­ing size to cre­ate a lush tower. Seedlings are cho­sen when they are still small, to be added to sal­ads, where their in­tense flavours can be en­joyed. The planter also makes an at­trac­tive cen­tre­piece for a spring lunch, with guests able to snip off shoots and help them­selves.
