Introducing Sparsholt’s 2017 garden, ‘Mighty Greens’…


Sparsholt College has partnered up with Steve’s Leaves and the University of Southampton for ‘Mighty Greens’, their garden for RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2017.

Mighty Greens intends to showcase a range of edible plants used in green salad mixtures together with the development of watercress, Nasturtium officinale, from a traditional Victorian street snack to the cutting edge work of the University of Southampton in cancer prevention.

The garden is divided into three sections: growing; preparation in the kitchen and dining. Edible plants are also used in the dining area to add colour and interest. The Mighty Green garden will highlight the health benefits of growing and consuming a range of salad mixtures regularly, together with showcasing leading edge scientific research.
