There is a very high demand for seed at the moment so we are doing our best to keep up with orders and packeting up more seeds. As such we are only accepting a certain amount of orders per day.
Our online shop will be open from 9am each day and we will close it once we have reached our capacity, we have also had to put limits on the amount of any one variety per order (3) and of total order amount (£50), to try to be as fair as possible to all our customers.
Thanks for your patience - we hope you and your loved ones are fit and healthy during this challenging time.
P.S. we apologise in advance if you happen to be in the middle of placing an order when we shut down the shop, and understand how frustrating this would be, but it will inevitably happen to some
Broccoli – Early purple (Organic)
A very popular and traditional variety of sprouting broccoli, producing an abundance of tasty spears from late March . We love Early Purple broccoli, it comes at a time of year when we are in serious need of some green vegetables that are not kale, chard or leeks! We can quite happily eat it with every meal during its harvest window. It is very versatile, being great seamed, stir fried, roasted, added to soups and stews, put in omelettes… the list could go on.
It is slow growing and takes around one year from sowing to harvest but it is well worth the wait, and each plant produces a lot of food. Plants can grow up to 1m in height.
