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.

    A mix of different varieties of kale, cut and come greens and mustard leaves that can be sown often and used when small for baby leaf tangy salad leaves or thinned out and left to mature for delicious, nutritious winter greens.

    This great cauliflower was collected in Co. Dublin in 1982 from an elderly farmer and produces magnificent curds. Kim Tyler told us ‘It is super reliable year after year, can’t remember when I received seed from you but it’s the only cauliflower I grow now it’s so good!’ Sow July/ August and plant out in September for an early crop the following spring; can also be grown in tunnels over winter for an even earlier crop.

  • Woad

    3.25 (3.25 incl VAT)
    Woad has been used for centuries to obtain a blue dye, it is said a hundred weight of leaves yields 10 lbs of dye and is quite an elaborate process to extract. However, it is easy to grow this ancient plant and, as Richard Mabey describes in one of his books, ‘worth having in the garden’. An attractive plant with 1m high stems, long succulent leaves which shine like stained glass, with inner blue; foamy clusters and brilliant-yellow flowers. Pendant fiddle shaped seeds which may also turn blue/purple in wet weather. Certified Organic
  • Good hardy landrace parsley from an Armenian market place (as the name suggests). Flat-leaved, with great flavour and hardy large clumps. We picked from the outdoor plants all through the winter. Certified Organic
