Pot ToppersWhile an increasing number of householders like the idea of growing at least some of their own food, modern gardens are often too small for a traditional vegetable plot.  Would-be ‘Good Lifers’ can however look forward to a ready supply of salad leaves and herbs just outside the back door or on the patio thanks to a new idea from Mr Fothergill’s.

Pot Toppers is the name of the new range of pre-sown circular 20cm (8in) wide seed mats.  There are seven varieties – three mixed salad leaves and four popular herbs – and with three mats per packet householders can look forward to a season-long supply of their favourites however small the back garden may be.  They can even be grown on balconies, and are the ideal answer for those who have little or no garden, but still wish to ‘grow their own’.

Mr Fothergill’s David Turner says he believes Pot Toppers  are also perfect for youngsters wishing to have a go at growing plants from seed for the first time.  Each has a recommended retail price of £3.45.
