The Landsman Raised Bed raises the garden surface 22cm(10ins.) above ground level and can be stacked two, three or four levels high; the mass of the soil holds the raised beds in position.

Peppery salad plants for your raised garden beds

A common complaint  is that salads too often taste bland and uninteresting. However, when you grow  this group of strongly  flavoured,  peppery salad plants in your raised garden beds, you can ensure  that this suggestion is never made  at your dining  table.
Endive Cichorium endivia
There  are two distinct types of endive  - curled and plain leaved  - both  of which have a succulent,  slightly  bitter taste. These robust vegetables are excellent  grown as autumn and winter  salads. Use as cut and come  again, either  harvesting  individual  leaves  or cutting  the whole  plant down  to about  2.5cm (1in) from the ground. Endive requires  fertile, well drained soil, and full sun.
Sow:  mid-spring to mid-summer.
Harvest:  early  summer to mid-autumn.
Mustard & Cress
Mustard  (Brassica  hirta) Mustard  is eaten  while  still at the seedling stage.  Sow: outdoors  in spring and autumn every seven to ten days and under cover, in a cold frame or greenhouse between  autumn and spring. Harvest:  when  4cm (1 1/2 in)tall. Will only last two to three cuts.

Garden Cress/Pepper cress (Lepidium sativum)
Garden  cress is similar  to  mustard in that it is eaten  as seedlings and their  flavours complement each other so well that they are generally eaten  together.
Sow:  Outdoors,  broadcast the seed over your raised bed then allow four weeks before harvesting.
Watercress  (Rorippa  Nasturtium-aquaticum)
Dark green  leaves with a delicious, spicy flavour. Watercress is hardy, so can be grown as a winter salad  vegetable.  Keep  watercress in a shady area. lf you have  access to running water you  will achieve a more succulent crop. Use rooted cuttings rather than seed.
Place  a stem in a jar of water and wait  until it sprouts  roots. Then make a  5cm (2in) deep water-saturated  slit in the soil of your raised bed. Put a layer of  sand, at the bottom of the slit, then plant the cuttings in the slit and water  well.

Peppery salad plants for your raised garden beds

 Rocket Eruca vesicaria
Rocket  has a delicious tangy,  peppery  taste without being bitter.  It is a very  hardy, vigorous  plant, although  it prefers a moist,  fertile soil.
Sow: spring to summer  fortnightly  in rows 30cm (12in)apart.  Cover  with  a sprinkling  of fine soil. Gently, firm. Thin  to 10cm  (4in)  apart. Harvest: approx four to five weeks  after  sowing.
Chicory and Radicchia Cichorium intybus
Among the most decorative  salad vegetables, chicory and radicchio, (sometimes  called  red chicor),  have pleasantly crunchy leaves with a very distinctive bitter  flavour. They  are easy to grow  and very  hardy. Radicchio is especially useful as a winter  salad vegetable, The best time to harvest is eight to ten weeks  after  sowing.
Corn Salad/Lamb's Lettuce/Mache Valerianella locusta
Attractive,  dark  green,  shiny leaves  with  a delicate  flavour. Corn salad is very easy to grow and can be grown  as a summer or winter  crop.   Grows exceptionally well in raised beds or planters.  Good grown  as cut and come again crop. Sow  mid-  to late summer.
Harvest: mid-spring  to mid-winter.
