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.
Agastache cana 'Heather Queen' is a dynamic landscape plant and a particularly beautiful form. Dark pink tubular flowers on tall stiff stems from mid-summer until late autumn. Pollinators are drawn to its fragrance, the intense coloration and their sweet nectar.
Named after 'Kelmscott Manor', the country home of the writer, designer and socialist William Morris, Papaver nudicaule ‘Kelmscott Giants’ produce large, luscious, crepe paper-like petals in an array of soft pastel shades.
