There is a very high demand for seed at the moment, and 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
Carrot – Autumn king (Organic)
An RHS award-winning maincrop variety ideal for storage over the winter months. How could we not include Autumn King in our catalogue?! This is one of our favourite varieties, and certainly lives up to its name. It is an RHS Award of Garden Merit winner and is a firm favourite amongst both home and market gardeners.
It produces conical roots up to 30cm long and with a deep organgey-red colour. It is sweet-tasting and delicious both raw and cooked.
Autumn King is a great carrot for storage over the winter. To store the roots place them in containers in single layers between layers of moist (but not wet) sand making sure they do not touch each other. Place the containers in a cool place and check the roots periodically over the winter and remove any that show signs of mould or rotting.
