Our Summer catalogue will be mailed from July and contains over 330 varieties of vegetable seed for summer and autumn sowing as well as vegetable and herb plants, fruit and autumn planting onions sets and garlic. Due to high demand we have a limited amount of catalogues available and they will be prioritized on a first come first served basis. Once stocks have run out requests will be held until our Autumn mailing in September. Thanks for your understanding.
With onion plants it is important to make sure ground is well prepared with plenty of rotted manure/compost (such as Orgro). We recommend that before planting the ground has had a top-dressing of a general fertiliser, such as Growmore raked in. Set out plants approximately 10cn (4in) apart in rows 25cm (10in) apart. Plants grown for exhibition purposes (such as Kelsae, Fasto F1 and Tough Ball F1) should be planted 40cm (16in) apart in rows 50cm (20in) apart. Plant the base of the bulb about 13-20mm (½-¾in) deep and firm well- water plants in.
Keep plants well watered when the weather is dry, but stop watering when the bulbs become swollen. Harvest when foliage begins to turn yellow and die back in August. Read more
About our Veg Plants
Vegetable plants are the perfect choice if you don’t have the time or facilities to grow lots of different varieties from seed. They are also useful for replacing plants lost to the weather or pests and diseases. Grown by experienced nurserymen, our plants will be delivered at the right time for growing in their final position on your plot. Hand graded and packed, they are sent directly from the nursery and fully hardened off before despatch. All varieties are supplied with easy-to-follow growing hints and instructions. Show less
