Vegetables For Baby Leaves

If you're a fan of baby leaves then you can look beyond salads for inspiration; many vegetables can also provide tasty baby leaf mixes too.

In this category you'll find a list of leaves, salads and vegetables that are all capable to producing those small, tender leaves that are packed with flavour. Enjoy raw on their own, with a simple dressing or as a delicious accompaniment to lunch and dinner. More...

Say the phrase 'baby leaf' and most will immediately picture a selection of tender salad leaves. And whilst we do supply a fantastic selection of salad leaves that can be picked as succulent, sweet, fiery and peppery baby leaves, we are also keen to open your eyes to the wider range of baby leaves available for harvesting throughout the year.

Many vegetables - particularly oriental veg and leafy vegetables - can also provide a variety of 'baby leaves' that are so flavoursome that they can be enjoyed with little need for preparation. In this category you will find our 'best picks' of salads, vegetables and more that can be enjoyed as baby leaves.

Salad leaves and leafy vegetables tend to prefer fertile, free-draining soil, salad leaves in particular preferring well-conditioned soil that is able to retain moisture, but not cause waterlogging. So preparation and maintenance is the key to sustaining a healthy, happy crop that will keep giving throughout the growing season.
