“I strive for perfection but settle for excellence”
‘Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away’
April and May were once again very challenging in 2023 with daytime temperatures soaring to the high 30s only to drop within hours to zero and below, this combined with scorching heat during June and really cold and wet in July. There’s no doubt that Global Warming is most certainly changing our climate, and, in the future, we will have to learn to adapt our growing techniques to suit. This brought its own problems with watering time taking over from active growing time. Please do visit our website as it could contains new cultivars as well as other items that I select when they come on the market which may not be available in our printed seed catalogue.
Every year we source new varieties of vegetables, and these will be highlighted with a star alongside them. Our ‘Premium Plants’ range continue to be very popular with our strong carboard boxes allowing the plants to be delivered in first class condition next day. These plants are grown in the largest Jiffy Seven pellet and will be ready for potting on into 4 inch pots. Each plant is inside a polythene bag that’s glued inside the box to minimise any damage.
Our range of ‘Premium Leek and Onion plants’ are all posted out in strong cardboard boxes allowing the Leeks to be received in first class condition next day and ready for potting on to into 4″ pot. These will be strong plants in the largest size Jiffy pellet and each individual plant wrapped up in polythene bags and glued to the box to minimise any damage. The seedlings will be posted in plastic containers to alleviate any damage at all.
Two free packets of a potential new culinary and/or show bench variety will be given with every order over £150.00, placed before 1st March 2024. Seed orders will be posted to customers as soon as possible but could be delayed until late November/December after most fresh seed stocks are to hand. All orders received by mid-December will be posted before Christmas. No seed will be posted out during the Christmas period from December the 16th 2023 to January 8th, 2024. Please note our office hours are between 9am and 5pm.
All our seed are heat-sealed in Aluminium Foil Mylar Vacuum Bags to ensure they remain fresh for as long as possible. I am strictly Mail Order and have no retail outlet as some people have realised to their disappointment. The sale of all plants and Allium bulbs are restricted to the UK only. Some of our seed may be chemically treated so do take sensible precautions.
We try and respond to all orders as soon as possible. We also accept all major credit and debit cards. Due to increased banking charges we are unable to accept cheques under the value of £10.00. I hope you enjoy browsing through this seed catalogue and I look forward to receiving your order soon. My Telephone number, as well as my email and Online Shop address, can be found on the back cover of this catalogue.
Please make sure that you fill in the correct P&P columns for Seed and Sundries on the order form, if in doubt regarding charges, email or ring us during office hours. Don’t forget to regularly check our Online Shop for new additions.
Thank you for your custom and enjoy growing, eating, and showing your vegetables in 2024.
