Fruit and Vegetables
More and more gardeners seem to be enjoying the pleasure of growing their own fruit and vegetable, all that fresh air and exercise, and of course nothing can compare to the taste of freshly picked home grown produce.
We have a good range of fruit trees and bushes in stock at most time of the year. This includes Apples, such as Coxes Orange, Pears, delicious Cherry Sundance, as well as Blackcurrants, Redcurrants, Gooseberries, Rhubarb, Tay berry and others.
Raspberry canes come in at the end of October/early November. We have a range of varieties with the early season Glen Moy through to late season Autumn Bliss, this gives you the opportunity to pick raspberries from early summer right through to the first frosts.
In early spring we start selling young vegetable plants including Dryham Early Cabbage, Galaxy String less Bean, Olympia, to name but a few.
As the weather warms up we have tomato plants as well as cucumbers and lettuce. Tumbling Tom tomatoes in a hanging basket are always popular and are great when space is limited.
Onion Sets, Shallots and Garlic are available in spring and autumn and of course Seed Potatoes from early January onwards. We stock well over 30 varieties, all of which can be bought in whatever quantity you like.
It doesn’t matter how much space you have, whether an allotment or corner of the patio its worth ‘having a go at growing your own’. There are lots of fruit and vegetables that are easy to grow in containers and if your lucky enough to have more space than the Worlds your Oyster or should we say the Gardens your Larder!
