Most soft fruits are very easy to grow in the UK with very few special requirements except for maybe blueberries which need acid soil and feed. Soft fruits are best planted in a sunny, sheltered site protected from cold, dry winds but nearly all types will do reasonably well in light shade as well. But remember more sun equals more fruit! Containerised grown canes can be planted at any time of the year providing the ground is not frozen or waterlogged.

Enrich the soil with manure or compost before planting and feed each year. Keep the plants well-watered and free from weeds.  Almost all types of fruits may need to be protected from preying birds when they are fruiting and depending on the fruit bush you choose will depend on when and if it needs pruning

We have had delivered today – BLACKBERRY, BLUEBERRY, BLACKCURRANT, GOOSEBERRY, LOGANBERRY, HONEYBERRY, RASPBERRY, REDCURRANT, WHITECURRANT. 

Please note we do not have strawberries yet but they will be in later in the spring.

We have had our delivery of seed potatoes, onions, shallots and garlic.

Potatoes are available in 2kg Carri packs and taster packs with around 10 seed potatoes in a pack.

Onions and shallots are in pre-packs, Garlic is in a pack of 1 or 2 bulbs per pack.

This year our garlic, shallots, onions and potatoes have come from Taylors Bulbs again. The potatoes are available in a 2kg carry home pack and taster packs of 10 seed potatoes for spring planting.

Our range contains First and Second Early, Main Crop and Sapro Mira the Super Blight resistant seed potatoes. The Seed Potato Taster Pack is ideal for the gardener requiring smaller quantities and a range of varieties.

With a large selection of potato varieties in our range, choosing which Seed Potatoes to plant can be a bit daunting! So here is a short guide to help choose which varieties to grow:

The seed potato packs are colour coded; blue for “First Earlies”, orange for “Second Earlies” and green for “Maincrop”.

First and Second Earlies will give you “new potatoes” in the summer, Maincrops will give you tubers for eating in the autumn and enough to store over winter for later use.

First Earlies will typically be ready for harvesting in June/July, Second Earlies in July/August and Main Crops from August onward but if storing then can be harvested in September or October.

(this list may be subject to change without notice due to crop failure etc).

Over the coming weeks we are expecting stock including seed potatoes, potted bulbs – so if you forgot to plant your autumn bulbs there is still time to have spring colour. We have already had a delivery of Sylvgrow/Melcourt organic and peat-free compost.
