I purchased plants labeled "vitamin greens". Does this have another name? Where can I get seeds?

Both European and Oriental greens have become very popular over the past few years. As a result, there are many, many mixes available through seed catalogs. I suspect the grower of the plants you purchased named the greens "vitamin" greens to appeal to a wide group of people. The plants may be a tangy mesclun blend, or a salad blend of lettuces, radicchio, endive, chervil and spinch. Seeds for some blends are available through the Burpee catalog.
