We also run gardening, permaculture and food forest workshops and courses, and provide consultancy services.
New Season Plants - Check these out!
Check out these amazing Litchi tomoatoes - they taste like a cross between a cherry and a tomato, deliciously rich. And they are perennial! But they come with a warning.....they are seriously thorny! We also have moonglow tomatoes ready now, super high in available lycopene, plus nine star perennial broccoli and walking stick kale, garden huckleberries and peanuts are almost ready - choose from black, white and red varieties. We're adding new plants to our range all the time, wacth out for two new varieties of bellflower coming soon, which have edible leaves and flowers...Check out the New Products and the Perennial Vegetables pages for more info.
No, not this kind of 'woof-woofer'! A commitment of one month is required in return for food, accomodation and a place on our workshops if they are running at that time. No experience required but a good level of fitness is important. Contact Jo for more info.
Check out our latest plants!
After adding about 60 new plants to our range last year we have added another 30 or so this year already and continue to add more - remember to keep checking the 'new products' page on the website or looking for these labels in the shops if you are local. As always we have chosen plants for their usefulness in your garden, not just their good looks, so if you are after nitrogen fixers, bee attractors, medicinal plants, drought hardy ground covers, look no further!
