What to plant now?
It’s never to late to plant a vegetable garden. As we move through the seasons the ground warms up and there are so many varieties of vegetables you can still plant in May, June, July and August. If you have a polytunnel you easily grow over wintering crops that will keep producing into the spring.

    Evening Primrose

    3.25 (3.25 incl VAT)
    Easy to grow, tall plant that opens its beautiful yellow phosphorescent flowers in the evening which also gives rise to such names as ‘Evening star’ or ‘Moths Moonflower’. Another common name is ‘Kings cure all’ as this plant has so many medicinal properties. The Oijbwe tribe in America were perhaps the first to realise the medicinal potential, using it as a poultice to heal bruising and skin problems but also to help asthma. All parts of Evening primrose can be eaten, the roots apparently taste like parsnip! Certified Organic
