1 Box clever
Sow winter herbs and salad in containers for easy picking from the doorstep or windowsill. Get a decent sized – at least 8in (20cm) deep – wooden or polystyrene box/ crate. Knock several drainage holes in the bottom, fill with compost and sow your salad. Cover the boxes with cling film to enclose the moisture and put them somewhere warm to germinate.
