Chard

Friday, September 16th, 2016

I love growing chard. It looks amazing and it’s easy to include in meals as a vegetable side dish or even adding to recipes.


Swiss Chard ‘Fantasy’ – 1 packet (175 swiss chard seeds)
 £2.99
Probably the best tasting Red Chard. The taste is mild, juicy and delicious with no harsh aftertastes unlike most Red Chards. Ideal for successional sowing through the spring and summer for both ‘baby leaf’ or as mature plants. High tolerance to downymildew

Swiss Chard ‘Bright Lights’ – 1 packet (80 swiss chard seeds)
 £2.99
This exciting RHS AGM leaf beet, produces a rainbow of coloured stems that are crowned with large leaves of green or bronze. The flavour is deliciously mild and packed with nutritional content. Leaf Beet ‘Bright Lights’ can be harvested from mid-summer to late autumn, and after a normal winter, it will re-emerge to give an unbelievably early spring crop! Guaranteed lo brighten the vegetable patch, or why not grow this colourful swiss chard cultivar in ornamental borders. Height: 50cm (20"’). Spread: 40cm (16"’)

Swiss Chard ‘Lucullus’ – 1 packet (200 swiss chard seeds)
 £2.99
A much more prolific form, Swiss Chard Lucullus produces an abundance of large, tasty leaves and wide, white mid-ribs. Cook the succulent mid-rib like asparagus and serve with melted butter. Easier, and some consider tastier, than spinach. If the plants of Swiss Chard Lucullus are left to flower, the flower stalks can be cooked and eaten like sprouting broccoli. Cropping from mid-summer to late autumn. After a normal winter, it will re-emerge to give an unbelievably early spring crop

Swiss Chard ‘Green Wave’ – 1 packet (200 swiss chard seeds)
 £2.69
‘Green Wave’ resembles a perpetual spinach beet, but is more productive and with more slender, milder-tasting stems and leaves, which are delicious in salads and stir fries when young. Use mature leaves in the same way as chard and spinach. Stands in good condition without bolting.

Swiss Chard ‘Five Colour Silverbeet’ – Heritage – 1 packet (200 swiss chard seeds)
 £2.29
A rainbow mix of vibrant stem and leaf colours maintained as an Australian heirloom. An excellent value crop as the juicy, mild flavoured broad stems (chards), and the leaves (as spinach) can be eaten. Both are best steamed, but as baby leaves the stems and leaves can be added to salads. Decorative vegetable perfect for borders and containers

Swiss Chard ‘White Silver’ – 1 packet (300 swiss chard seeds)
 £0.99
A versatile no-waste vegetable. Grow as a salad leaf, or more usually as mature plants for the thick, white, juicy stems (chards), which are cut into chunks and boiled, or used to add ‘crunch’ to stir-fries. Use the delicious leaves like spinach. A final sowing in August will crop through to New Year.

Swiss Chard ‘Bright Yellow’ – 1 packet (85 swiss chard seeds)
 £0.99
The beautiful, broad golden stalks of Swiss Chard Bright Yellow are a striking and colourful addition to the vegetable garden and the flower border or containers. The sweet stalks can be steamed as a vegetable or, when young, eaten raw in salads. Swiss Chard Bright Yellow is slow to bolting and has good winter hardiness. Cropping from mid-summer to late autumn. After a normal winter, it will re-emerge to give an unbelievably early spring crop

Beetroot seeds

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

I love beetroot! There’s so many different seeds you could try!
Direct sow beetroot seeds outdoors from March to July in a weed free, sunny position in fertile, light, well drained soil. Sow beetroot seeds thinly in shallow drills at a depth of 3cm (1″) and 30cm (12″) apart. Germination will usually take 12 to 24 days. When large enough to handle, thin out the seedlings within each row to 10cm (4″) apart.

When growing beetroot, water as necessary to prevent the soil from drying out and keep the plants cool and moist. This will help to avoid plants running to seed. Roots can be lifted at any time from June to October once they have reached 1″ diameter or more. Harvest any remaining crops before the first frosts. Beetroot can be stored until mid spring in boxes of moist sand in a frost free shed or garage.

Although these varieties are all partially self fertile, when planted together they will aid pollination and increase yields between each other for an extended cropping period from July to September. Height and spread: 35m (11’). Rootstock: St. Julien A. Collection comprises 1 tree each of: Plum ‘Opal’, Plum ‘Victoria’ and Plum ‘Seneca’
