5 favourites to grow in Winter

1. Lemon Grass

This clump-forming perennial with strongly lemon-scented leaves is the perfect addition to any South East Asian dishes.

2. Kale

High in vitamins, antioxidants and fibre, this popular ‘superfood’ is something we should all be including in our diets.

3. Lovage

This underrated Mediterranean herb have a strong celery-like flavour and will add depth to slow-cooked food.

4. Chives

What’s nice about chives is that they usually grow through winter and provide a constant supply. Just cut off the green shoots at ground level and they quickly resprout.

5. Turnips

This root vegetable has been an important source of food for both man and animals for centuries.
