Blocky, deeply ribbed and extremely bumpy, for most of the season Squash 'Futtsu Black Early' are a gorgeous dark green to charcoal black, but in autumn they mature to a grey-bloomed dusty orange. With orange flesh and a flavour crossed between a pumpkin and a chestnut — sweet, buttery, and slightly nutty.
This rare little beauty produces bright red peppers that have a crisp texture, a sweet pleasant flavour with only a mild pungency. Named for its distinct three-sided shape, 'Bishops Crown' is great to eat raw as an edible decoration, add to salads or garnish hors d'oeuvre.
Peony poppies are one of the easiest ways to add a bit of architecture and a lot of dazzle to your garden. Superb in the flower border, 'Violet Blush' produces spectacular palm-sized blooms in a lovely light blushed, violet-pink colour.
This is a lovely cultivar of the California poppy, the blooms of 'Ivory Castle' boasts single, creamy white blooms. One of the easiest and most colourful annuals to grow from seed, they bloom profusely from mid summer until frosts and are breathtaking in massed plantings or containers.
Tomato Rosella a winner in taste, productivity and good looks. Very heavy cropping, the plants produce long compound trusses of stunning dark smoky-rose tomatoes that have a complex sweet, fruity flavour.
A cult favourite of high-end florists who reserve ‘Amazing Grey’ for their finest design work. Sown in spring, by June you will be blessed with goose neck, prickly buds and shortly after, gorgeous pearl greys, pewter and mauve coloured, luminescent blooms.
We have been completely inundated with orders and are unable to take any more until we have cleared the backlog.. We are especially sorry to those that tried on Saturday but were frustrated by the website buckling under the load. We will put up a notice as soon as we are able to say when we can reopen. Many apologies for all of the trouble and inconvenience.
For the time being we are still having to restrict orders to the UK and Ireland only as the state of the international post is causing so many problems for European orders. We hope to return to normal as soon as the Covid crisis eases and flights return to normal.
We are so sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause.
