Cabbage 'Earliest of all'
A very vigorous grower producing exceptionally large compact heads.
Swiss Chard 'Bright Lights'.
Produces succulent stems of red, yellow and white; the leaves are delicious stir-fried or used like spinach.
French Beans ' Cropper Tepee'
Runner Beans. 'White Lady' and Painted Lady'
Cherry type tomatoes 'Red Pear'and 'Yellow Pear'
We also grow 'Ox Heart' shaped like their name. Large meaty tomatoes which are very good for cooking. Also Gardeners Delight, the most flavoursome tomato in our opinion.
TIP A ripe tomato is not necessarily a red tomato. It is only ripe when ripened on the plant. The flavour will be far more tastey.
Sweet corn 'Minimop'. Each plant produces 5-6 mini cobs. Delicious in stir-fries.
Leeks 'Winter Giant' and main crop onions 'Fen Globe' and 'Red Baron'
Curly Kale and Sprouts
'Dwarf Green Curled' . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . F1 'Cascade'
Parsnips 'Kingship' and 'Archer'
