Vegetable and Salad Plants

Fruit and Veg seedlings and Plants

Fresh fruit and vegetables from your own garden are unbeatable. We grow a wide selection ready to plant out which this year will include 8 varieties of lettuce, 17 of tomatoes and 5 chilli peppers.

Our fruit and vegetable plants are homegrown and include commercial varieties for increased cropping and disease resistance.

Spring and early summer are the main planting times. Spring Cabbage is available from August onward.

To see the list of fruit and vegetable plants that we have in stock at the beginning of the season, please see the list below; this does not, however, guarantee availability on the day of your visit. Conversely, there may be additions to our list during the year, so if you are looking for something particular, do ask – we might be able to help. Call us on 01225 862 392 or email us.

Location: Our vegetables and salad plants may be found outside, to the right of the propagating house.

Don’t miss out on our range of fresh herbs either.

The Brix value is the measurement used to determine how much sugar is in fruit. The higher the value, then the higher the sugar content and the sweeter the fruit will taste.    Here is a general scale to provide a reference point for brix measurements of tomatoes. (taken from Ball Colegrave)
Brix 4/5: The majority of commercial tomatoes seem to fall into this range; often lack a distinguishing flavour
Brix 7: Gardeners Delight sits about here
Brix 8:  A denser, more intense and concentrated flavour. A noticeably good tomato
