Herbst & Winter Radish

February is not a good gardening month.  There….I have said it.  Cold, dark, windy and the soil is still too wet to really get on to it.  However it is a good month to visit gardens looking for inspiration just as you are planning your plot for the spring.  Read the rest of this entry →

Samantha finds time to keep an eye on her vegetables

There's always plenty to do with your vegetable plot - even in August!

Many people are inclined to ‘take their eye off the ball’ in August when it comes to vegetable gardening – The days are still long and it’s time for many of us to go off on holiday, but there’s still plenty we could be doing to maximise the potential of our vegetable plots, and there’s still time to be sowing a few vegetable seeds even in August.

New Vegetable Seeds – July 2010 0

Posted on July 24, 2010 by Gardening Guru

We are constantly bringing new seeds into our range.  We get as bored as I am sure you do with seeing the same old stuff all the time so something new brightens things up a little.  It can take quite a while for them to find their way on to our website, though, photos loaded etc etc etc, so please bear with us.

We do  have 3 new ones one ready to go as I type this :- 2 runner beans and a new radish.  The new beans are the ‘Preisgewinner‘ and ‘Butler‘ both really good varieties, the Butler is a stringless pod and the Preisgewinner produces an extra long pod reaching up to 30cm in length.  The radish is the ‘Herbst und Winter‘ a blue/purple skin with very white flesh.

As I said we do keep bringing new seeds in and we will keep posting information in the blog but if you want to check out the new varieties then have a look at the new vegetable seeds page on our website where they are all listed.  Until they are not new anymore.
