Gourmet Vegetables

Our range of gourmet vegetables and fruit plants are premium plants perfect for enthusiasts seeking village-fair winning crops. Grown in a climate controlled glasshouse and fed with a sophisticated drip system, our plants germinate earlier and grow faster, ensuring you receive an already vigorous plant ready to begin fruiting.

Grafted Vegetables

Grafted vegetables are even better still in that they fruit even earlier and heavier. They are produced from two separate plants that really are greater than the sum of its parts. At the top you will get the delicious fruit as listed, but the roots will be superior, both temperature and disease resistant, and able to put more energy into fruiting.

Packaging

All our plants are carefully wrapped up in specially-designed and sustainably-sourced cardboard packaging. All packaging will be extensively trailed to ensure that your plants arrive safely, and we will even utilise a delicate-parcels courier just to be certain.

When Your Plants Arrive...

  1. Unpack your plants - Preferably straight after they arrive, you should carefully unpack your plants. They might appear slightly tired after their journey, however they will soon perk up again.
  2. Identify each plant - Each type of plant (but not each individual plant) will be clearly labelled. Lay them out into their respective plant types (such as wild rocket, cauliflower, or peas).
  3. Provide a drink - The roots of your plants may be dry, so provide all of them with a nourishing drink of water. This can be done by ensuring that the roots are stood upright, and submerging them for a few minutes in a container of clean water.

Planting Your Vegetables or Herbs...

  • Their position: For the best results, we encourage you to plant your vegetables into a site that receives full sun exposure.
  • Soil types: It is important that you avoid waterlogged soils. This is because they can lead to root root and compacted soils, which will retard vegetable growth.
  • Planting distance: You should plant your plugs between 15-20cm apart, and further ensure that their stems are level with the soil. You should also make sure that the rows are spaced 15-30cm away from each other.
  • Watering requirements: Water when planting, and during periods of drought.
  • Hardiness: We will attentively care for your vegetables, and only deliver them when it is warm enough for them to be planted in your garden.
