Land cress is the next best thing to watercress, but does not need running water to produce a delicious crop. It is best in a shady spot, so is good for inter-cropping with taller vegetables. It thrives with plenty of moisture in the soil and the leaves can be picked all year round to add a ‘zing’ to salads. High yielding. Yellow fruit. Sow Date: Mar-Sep. Harvest: All Year Round
The swollen leaf bases or ‘bulbs’ are delicious chopped raw in salads or braised and served with fish or meat. They have a texture similar to celery and a taste reminiscent of aniseed. The attractive ferny foliage is also edible and is a great garnish.
Make sure your garden is bursting with stunning flavours and striking colours, make your garden beautiful and grow your own delicious produce. An old favourite, Musselburgh Winter Leeks are easy to grow and incredibly versatile. An exceptionally hardy variety, very reliable and heavy cropping, these winter leeks are hard to beat.
Grow your own for the best flavour and you can eat it minutes after picking. Compact, dark green leaves, with a very solid, crisp and crunchy heart. Extraordinarily sweet and just perfect for individual salads.
This is one of the best parsnips around, with smooth, long tapering roots that grow very strongly and evenly. Bred for resistance to Parsnip canker and other diseases, Albion is well suited to organic growing. The excellent sweet flavour improves further after the first frosts.
Whether you want pumpkins for making lanterns or for delicious pumpkin pie, this is one of the best varieties to choose. They will store until Christmas in a cool, dry place. Great for children. Stores well. Sow Date: Mar-May.
