Larkspur Seeds - Fancy Purple Picotee

Larkspur Seeds – Fancy Purple Picotee £2.99
Rob says: Larkspur always remind me of the quintessential country garden and this variety goes one step further with its gorgeous multi-tined flowers. The blooms are china white towards the centre, rimmed with a lovely shade of purple on the edge of each petal. Larkspur make a fantastic cut flower, and, for year round larkspur, try hanging cut stems upside down in a cool dark place. This will give you dried flowers that will last until the next years crop are ready to cut. You can also pick the petals off the stems once they are dried for 100% biodegradable, wildlife friendly confetti! Flowers June-September. Height 50-60cm (20-24). HA – Hardy annual.

Dwarf French Bean Seeds - Rocquencourt

Dwarf French Bean Seeds – Rocquencourt £1.99
Rob says: These beans, bred in France in the 1840s, form small bush-style plants. They are more cold hardy than most other varieties, so can be sown a few weeks earlier than others, and will crop for a few weeks later too. The beans are a waxy, yellow colour. Best picked young when they still have a flush of green on them, they have a fresh buttery flavour. As the beans are yellow and plants are short, they are easy to spot and easy to pick, ideal in containers or in front of taller crops. Try blanching a few and tossing them in your favourite salad for a bit of added crunch.

Basil Seeds - Lettuce Leaf

Basil Seeds – Lettuce Leaf £1.99
Rob says: This basil has been around since the late 1800s. Its got the biggest leaf of any basil variety, 15cm (6) long on a 45cm (18) plant, theyre slightly frilly on the edges with a sweet and spicy flavour. The flowers are also edible, with a lovely flavour, and look great in salads. The leaves can be used to wrap chicken, fish or vegetables before you grill or BBQ them. And with the size of these leaves, you wont need many to make your own pesto
