Fruit and vegetable seeds

The variety of vegetable seeds in the shop is remarkable - carrots of different shapes, sizes and flavours, several kinds of peas, runner beans, climbing and dwarf French beans and broad beans, three types of chard, pak choi, kale, several kinds of cabbage, four kinds of parsnip, onions to suit any recipe, chives and garlic chives, basil, coriander, rosemary, tarragon, oregano, thyme, parsley, dill, cress, watercress and mustard.

In the photo there are seven kinds of radish and six different packets of beetroot.

Squashes, pumpkins, courgettes, marrows, cucumbers, calabrese and broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach all make healthy eating!

Sweet corn, rhubarb, fennel, mixed leaves and rocket bring variety to salads, along with twelve types of lettuce.

Peppers come in six hot and sweet varieties along with a mixed packet.

If you have a greenhouse, you'll find some useful items on the gardening products page. You are also spoiled for choice in tomato varieties:-

on the bottom row from left to right are Tumbling Tom, Sweet Million, Sungold, Shirley, Moneymaker, Gardener's Delight, Alicante and a collection of varieties all in one packet.

Young gardeners can enjoy growing Spooky Face Pumpkins and Egg Heads Cress. There are also handy Johnsons guides to growing fruit and vegetables from seed.

As you can see from the photo and the flower seeds page, there's no need to look further for seeds! If you have a big monitor, it is worth looking more closely at the full-page photos of flowers and eatables.
