Peas – Golden Sweet (Organic)£2.35 – £5.20 Select options
Peas – Golden Sweet (Organic)
Vigorous multicoloured plants with green leaves, red-magenta leaf nodes, cream-pink-purple-blue flowers and golden-yellow pods. Golden Sweet makes an unusual attraction in the pea patch. We love the extraordinary colour changes of the flower from cream to purple and blue when they mature. When the pods are still young they’re very sweet and crunchy, as the pods get bigger they’ll become more stringy which makes them better for cooking rather than eating raw.
It was a real pleasure growing Golden Sweet in our pea trial 2018 and observing all the different colours. We found that the whole plant has a golden glow to it once it starts flowering. It was probably one of the tastiest mangetouts that we had when picked young.£2.35 – £5.20

Peas – Sugar Snap (Organic)
Crunchy and sweet round podded sugar snap pea variety with no shelling necessary.

The plants grow tall and will need support. We eat them raw or cooked in stir fries. They are so flavoursome that you will just want to keep growing them.

Chilli – Lemon Drop (Organic)£2.05 – £4.00 Select options
Chilli – Lemon Drop (Organic)
Crinkly yellow chilli with a hot lemony flavour with a wide range of culinary uses. One of our most popular chilli varieties with a bushy growth habit and lots of fruits ripening from green to yellow.
The variety is also called Aji Limon and originates from Peru where it’s used as a seasoning pepper. Rating 30,000-50,000 SHU (Scoville heat units) it is quite a spicy one ideal for making your own hot chilli sauce with an extra citrusy twist or add it to stir fries, tomato sauces or your scrambled eggs.
To get good germination temperatures of 28° – 30°C are recommended. Germination can be slow and take three weeks or more. As it is thought to be genetically slightly closer to its wild relatives, there is some apparent seed dormancy which can affect germination rates. We have included a higher number of seeds in the packets to ensure you get enough plants.£2.05 – £4.00

Kale – Pentland Brigg ***NEW FOR 2022*** (Organic)
Pentland Brigg is a superb heritage kale which is the result of a cross between Dwarf Green and Thousand Headed kale. With parents such as these it’s no wonder this is such a great variety.
