Salads and herbs sold in pot

Lettuce sold in plastic pot

When going to a Finnish grocery store, you might notice something completely different from your home country in the vegetables counters. The salads and fresh herbs are sold in plastic pots! No, you are not dreaming, and neither are in a garden center. The main reason why they are still in in peat, is to guarantee the freshness of the product during the whole year from the greenhouse to your kitchen.

Another advantage of this technique is that if you do not use everything, you can create your own garden that might last for a very long time. No waste!
