Extremely nutritious looks great and requires little attention to produce a good crop. Dark green, densely curled leaves. The plants are dwarf growing and compact in habit. Very winter hardy. To cook quickly steam leaves until tender. Organically grown vegetable plants, to pick and mix whatever you want to grow. Ideal for those who don't have the time, space or confidence to start plants from seed, just open the box and get growing. The plants are despatched from late April/early May depending on the conditions. They will arrive packed in straw in their own individual biodegradable pots, or bare rooted depending on variety, hardened off and ready to be transplanted into your garden.
Plug plants and 9cm potted plants will continue to be supplied in cardboard boxes as in the past although we hope for the future to find an effective paper-based sealing tape. On all plants displaying this box symbol, a surcharge of £5.95 will continue to apply for every order as these plants have for a number of years been supplied through a third party and not our own UK nursery. We are working with a supplier of vegetable material based-pots and bags and hope to be able to switch to these alternatives at the earliest opportunity. Please supply an email address when ordering so that we can let you know your plants are ready 7 days before sending. Delivery to UK MAINLAND addresses only. Stocks may be limited for some varieties and in some cases, it may be necessary to send a close substitute.
