    Sunflower – Giant Yellow (Organic)

    A very large yellow variety of sunflower, producing impressive blooms up to 30cm in diameter. No surprises here! This is a sunflower that does exactly what it says on the tin. Tall and sturdy plants producing huge single yellow flowers. The flowers are much loved by bees and if you leave the plants over the winter they provide a valuable ecological role as winter bird food (the seeds) and a habitat for many insects (the stems). If you have heavy clay soil, incorporating the remains of the plants into the soil in spring will lighten the soil due its high carbon content.
    We always grow loads of sunflowers, dotted in amongst our other crops. They are really easy to grow and bring such a shameless joy to the garden. They are pure flower and nothing else!

    Beetroot – Chioggia (Organic)

    An Italian variety with striking white and red concentric rings throughout its flesh. This unusual cultivar has been around since the early 19th century and originates from the coastal town of Chioggia near Venice in Northern Italy. With its delicate flavour and soft flesh it will make an ideal raw addition in salads or as a decorative side dish. When cooked the rings will fade out a little and become pinkish but the beetroot will keep its sweet and mild delicious taste. Definitely our favourite in terms of looks!

    Tomato – Ruthje (Organic)

    A bright red greenhouse tomato with an exceptionally aromatic flavour, bred specifically for organic cultivation. This variety was bred 1996 in Germany by Ulrike Behrendt. Flavour and resistance to fungal disease was the main focus of the selection. It can deal well with a low intake of nutrients which promotes good taste. The firm fruits should be left on the plant until fully coloured and will keep for a long time on the plant. They can be stored and will also after-ripen. The plant has strong dark green almost shiny leaves, and short internodal length.

    Ruthje stands out for its aromatic taste and was one of our favourites in the 2018 tomato trials. If you only wanted to grow one kind of tomato, this would be an excellent choice.

    Beetroot – Boltardy (Organic)

    A classic all-purpose beetroot, well suited to early sowings as a result of its excellent resistance to bolting. Boltardy is a winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit and has a well earned reputation for being a real ‘workhorse’ variety. Many large scale growers choose this variety over its modern hybrid cousins for early sowings. We love it as it does exactly what is says on the tin.

    Winter Squash – Oregon Homestead Sweet Meat (Organic)

    A large, beautiful, and delicious hubbard-type pumpkin, with excellent storage qualities . This is a variety bred by Carol Deppe in Corvallis, Oregon in the USA. She spent years selecting for vigour, good cool-soil emergence, small seed cavity and premium flavour. We believe this variety is a serious contender to Crown Prince F1. It is quite a large variety with a crunchy, sweet flavour. They were extremely prolific in our 2018 squash trials and Ronja’s clear favourite in taste. They are great for cooking and even raw they are a real pleasure to munch on.

    Indeterminate cherry tomato with multi-coloured elongated fruits of a delicate sweetness. What a tomato! It has crazy colours ranging from green, purple, black to orange and red. They are of a large grape to plum size, slightly elongated with a pointy tip. The fruits hold quite well on the vine and after harvesting without splitting. It is one of the best tasting tomatoes that we grew in 2020. Just make sure they are ripe when you harvest them, indicated by a colour change towards orange or red and a softness to touch.
