The bedding and vegetable seedlings are thriving in the propagation tunnel.
The first lot of tomotoes will be out for sale tomorrow. This year we have 8 varieties of tomatoes! 3 varieties of trailing tomatoes – great for containers and hanging baskets, 2 varieties of cherry tomotoes – Gardeners Delight and Sun Gold, plum tomato – San Marzano, Tigerella and Ailsa Craig.
The first lot of courgettes have germinated and should be ready for sale in 2 weeks time (weather permitting of course) – we have a green bush variety and yellow variety.

Some brassicas and vegetable seedlings are out for sale now and ready for planting out: Cabbage ‘Derby Day’, Cauliflower ‘Snowball’, Calabrese ‘Marathon’, Brussels Sprout ‘Bedford Darkmar 21’, Red Cabbage ‘Red Drumhead’, Onion ‘Red Baron’ and Broad Beans ‘ The Sutton’ and ‘Witkiem Manita’.

We are gradually bringing out some bedding plants and hardening them off in the sales tunnel.
