Salad producer Angflaw from Frating near Colchester in Essex has become the first in the UK to produce Lamb’s Lettuce and has also just started producing miniature kale leaves. Managing director Dave Edwards spoke to Peter Holmes and told him how the production of Lamb’s lettuce had taken off.

On his organic allotment Mike Thurlow has been busy, the ground has already been dug over as part of his preparations for the summer. The first hard frosts have sweetened the parsnips and Brussels sprouts, whilst the winter cabbage and kale can be harvested as needed.
