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 – typically 8 varieties of lettuce, 15 tomatoes and 5 chilli peppers.  Our fruit and vegetable plants are home grown 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 onwards.

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 will 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.
