This video shows 5 tips on how I grow several varieties of salad plants in just one small raised garden bed. We cover lettuce, spinach, and other salad crops to …


  1. Really enjoy your site. As I was reviewing some of your older postings several things came to mind. One, thank you for your service! I was USN from '63 to '93. Two, the water into the shed…my solution would be to berm protect with a French drain. Three, here is the states we have many food providers for the homeless. I have tried to provide my excess to the local veterans' home so that they can enjoy the really fresh produce. Bottom line…THANK YOU SIR. Keep up the great work. God bless.

  3. Great video! We're in Brisbane and have raised garden beds full of salad, both green and red (similar to yours ). We find we can grow pretty much through the summer with the judicious use of shade cloth.

  4. Very informative. I am fairly new at gardening, and living in the tropics it is impossible to grow regular "greens" until after September. I am starting my seedlings to try and see if I have better luck this year. Our weather goes down to about 70-75 during October to march , as a matter of fact sometimes at the end of December the temperature can go down to about 65 farinheit. After April I should start other types of vegetables like katuk, Malabar spinach,egyptian spinach, and I love my cranberry hibiscus leaves (purple) and moringa..In the future I will buy dark color vegetables like your beautiful lettuce, and thanks for the tip about fertilizing more often with liquids… I am enjoying your videos..thankyou ๐Ÿ˜

  5. Great video and great tips. Going to use them when I grow sallad next year. Right now, because it's cold at night I grow sallad in rain gutters in my greenhouse. See you in the next video.

  7. GDay Mark. Im new to your channel but mate I must say out of all the veggie you tube sites yours has to be tops. Your info is most relevant to my situation here in Cambodia. Mate thanks for all you efforts and please keep up the the greag work. Where in Oz do you live? Appears somewhere in QLD.

  8. Another great video Mark. We love Salad leaves and in the UK they do ok inside the tunnel all winter although it does slow their growth, but if your just taking the outer leaves from each plant you can get a picking a couple of times a week

  9. This is just what I was looking for – I learned a lot! Nice video and helpful tips! I had not realized how much the salad gardenย needed to be fed during the season, I had tended to feed on both ends of the season instead.ย  I will also keep that watering up, funny –ย I think of this with fruit producing but backed off a little on the lettuce. The season timing was a Powerful tip as well – some items are just more forgiving. Thanks for taking the time to do this Awesome Video ! So timely!

  10. Does anyone here know if you can grow cold weather loving lettuce varieties in a greenhouse with air conditioning? This is my hope. I would think that a white tarp rather than clear poly cover would also help to keep the temp down. Maybe even additional shade cloth.

  11. Nice living in a subtropical region. Here in taiga, the majority of the 12 months the ground surface is either buried deep under mountains of snow, or being exposed to bitter cold. But, we do grow what we can about 3 months a year.

  12. Hi Mark from self sufficient me !! Fantastic top tips on growing lettuce !! Lettuce is my nemesis and for the past two years I've had trouble growing them so hopefully with this advice and information I can be more successful !! Thanks for sharing
