It certainly wasn't the best weather on the island this summer, apart strangely enough, from tomatoes that seemed to have done well all over the country with larger than usual entries at most shows. However, owing to the skill of the British growers the show benches were, as usual, full of the highest quality vegetables that you could see anywhere in the world. We only staged one display of vegetables in 2016 winning a Gold medal at Malvern where we launched the new tomato for this coming season. Red Dragon is a commercial cross between Cedrico and Goldstar, not only is it a winner on the show bench it has fantastic flavour as well. We also won the RHS Gordon Lennox Trophy, awarded for the Best display of vegetables during the year at any RHS show for our Malvern Display in 2015.

Thank you for visiting what I believe to be the best online shop for vegetable seeds, plants, potato seed, onion sets and sundries. For the first time this season we are selling an extensive range of Garlic bulbs to cater for all tastes. We are continuing to sell seed potatoes, these are all varieties that are regularly winning on the show benches all over the country as well as being excellent selections for the kitchen. We also sell Everris Levington Professional range of Growing Media (Composts) that can either be picked up or delivered to your home on a pallet. We are also prepared to offer you a mixed pallet, please ring up for a quotation.
We have our own extensive range of bespoke Fertilisers, these are sold in 5kg, 10kg, and 20kg strong polythene bags. We have also added our own liquid Tomato feed Item No 0018 and 0019.
We stock genuine Calcified Seaweed (not a substitute) which is ground down to a very fine sieve size. This means it will become available quicker to the plants. Since harvesting of Calcified seaweed off the Cornish coasts (and elsewhere in Europe) has been banned by the EEC, it has been unavailable for the past few years. This has allowed a number of products to appear on the market claiming to be Calcified Seaweed when they are in fact only a substitute. Our Calcified Seaweed is an important ingredient in the mixes for growing top quality exhibition potatoes and root crops, is harvested outside of the EEC.
Let’s hope the weather will be kind to us in 2017 so that we all have a very productive year in the garden. Medwyn.
