  • Aubergine Seeds
    <p>Aubergines (eggplants) are fast becoming a popular vegetable to grow at home. A very delicious fruit with lots of culinary applications! Having a reputation for not being the easiest plants to grow here in the UK your best to grow them under cover greenhouse or a polytunnel. Sow your aubergine seed in early spring (Jan - March). Seed is best germinated using a heated propagator between 20 Celsius and 25 Celsius. </p> <p></p> <p>Transplanting the seeds for best results we recommend growing aubergines in pots of 9lts or more, best time to transplant or planting out is May - June. Ivory and Jackpot aubergines are both very high producing each has a very distinctive flavour and colour you can start to harvest your plant from July until late September.</p>
  • Broad Bean Seeds
    <p>A sensational taste when fresh from the garden or allotment. Sow in autumn and your first harvest will be ready around May. Broad beans are one of the oldest cultivated vegetables. Young broad beans are incredibly sweet and tender making them ideal as a summer snack or treat while working on the plot.</p> <p>Broad beans can be enjoyed hot or cold. We prefer to use our broad beans in a nice hot curry! Very easy to grow and handle anyone can grow we advice to avoid sowing direct because mice and other pests in the winter will love broad bean seeds as much as you do eating them! We always advise starting off your beans in pots or trays and transplant to ground later to ensure a rodent free germination! </p>
  • French Bean Seeds
    <p>When space is limited, turn to the French bean. It's easy to grow where space is a premium, and provides ideal finger food for younger children or for anyone else who doesn’t like the string that comes with runner beans (me included). Plant as little as 6 plants for a healthy crop. Keep picking and you will be rewarded with more.</p>
  • Runner Bean Seeds
    <p>A British summer just isn’t the same if you don’t grow runner beans. A super-duper easy vegetable to grow, Runner Beans will keep you in fresh in fact id say it’s the easiest vegetable to grow. Just remember to provide plenty of support 8ft canes will do the job nicely.</p>
  • Beetroot Seeds
    <p>New to growing your own root vegetables? Start off with some beetroot! It's easy to grow and if you grow some winter varieties it’s possible to get a crop all year long!</p>
  • Broccoli Seeds
    <p>What's fast growing, easy to grow and packed with vitamins? It must be broccoli, of course (or every child’s worst nightmare)! These varieties of sprouting broccoli can be grown all year for a summer and winter harvest our stocks contain white, green and purple sprouting broccoli.</p> <p>We also stock a high range of F1 <strong>Calabrese seed </strong>these form a tight headed vegetable as many would assoicate as being broccoli when bought from the supermarket.</p>

    <p>Ideal for growing in the UK (they prefer cooler temperatures), brussel sprouts fro your garden taste much better than shop-bought varieties.</p>
  • Cabbage Seeds
    <p>Cabbages come in many different shapes, sizes and colours. With a little pre-planning, you can harvest cabbages almost all year round.</p>

    <p>Carrots sown regularly will provide you with a crop for an entire year and they're so simple to grow! They come in a range of colours and sizes and even perform well in containers if you're short on space or have heavy clay soil (just make sure no stones are in the soil or you risk forking).</p> <p>Read our guide to <a href="" target="_blank">growing carrots in containers</a> and you can enjoy carrots all year round!</p>
  • Cauliflower Seeds
    <p>One of the best reasons to grow your own vegetables is to save money, and with cauliflowers being rather pricy it really is worthwhile. They do require a fair amount of space, however, not to mention deep rich soil. Regular watering is required and efforts should be doubled during the summer. That said, cauliflowers can be grown all year round.</p>
  • Chilli and Pepper Seeds
    <p>Home grown peppers have bright colours, lovely texture and are packed full of flavor. They come in many shapes and sizes and flavours. We stock a range of hot and mild chilli peppers, as well as a few sweet peppers that are very versatile when it comes to cooking.<br /><br /> Both sweet and hot peppers require a warm place, so I'd advise growing them in a greenhouse or pollytunel. Start them off indoors in modules and then transplant to larger pots as they start to grow.</p>
  • Courgette Seeds
    <p>Courgettes (zucchini) are incredibly easy to grow and very quck to, if you're lucky, one plant will provide you with 3-4 fruits a week. They do like to spread and will take up some room during the height of the growing season, so if space is limited plant them in a large plot or potato sack. Don’t be tempted to grow too many plants or you'll have courgettes coming from all directions (believe me I know!!). 2 plants are ideal for a family of 4.</p>
  • Cucumber Seeds
    <p>Home grown cucumbers taste great. Planted in pots, bags or directly into the soil--if you have a greenhouse or polytunnel, cucumbers will thrive wherever you put them. If you don't have a greenhouse, no worries - just make sure you choose the varieties specifically bred to thrive outdoors.</p>
  • Garlic Bulbs
    <p>Garlic is one of the easiest root vegetables to grow. How to grow garlic? Simple, all it needs is some sun and a good start plant your garlic bulbs in October - Jan. I prefer to start mine in pots and plant out once they start to grow a few cm tall. Growing your own garlic will reward you with big juicy bulbs. Just don’t be tempted to grow from supermarket cloves – results will be disappointing at best.</p> <p><b>All Garlic PRE ORDERS open the second week of September YEARLY. Once the stock is allocated we have no more garlic until the following year, garlic is dispatched in order date i.e first come first serve. </b></p>
  • Leek Seeds
    <p>Leeks are easy to grow, but do require some maintenance. For best results, leeks are best sown in containers or modules. Once their stems are thick as a pencil, plant them out to their final position.</p>
  • Lettuce Seeds
    <p>The best way to ensure a fresh supply of salad is by mixing seeds. Our range includes lettuce, radishes, cucumbers and our tasty ‘Spicy Microgreens’.' With unusual flavour’s there are lots of exciting ingredients for your salads!</p> <p>Salad crops grow very quickly so they can be used as "catch up" plants between slower growing vegetables.</p> <p>Fresh lettuce is a joy to grow, and it tastes so much better than the ones we buy at stores. You can plant them in containers or outside - as long as you have multiple sowing times throughout the year, they'll keep growing!</p> <p>The satisfaction of biting into a crisp, freshly picked head of lettuce from your very own garden is incomparable. Careful planning and regular sowing of lettuce seeds it's possible to have fresh leaves all year round! With our range of lettuce seeds means there will never be another boring salad in sight.</p>
  • Onion Seeds
    <p>Great-tasting onions can only be found grown at home! We tend to find all grown onions are sweeter, stronger and store for much longer. Growing onions from seed is much cheaper compared to buying onion sets although sets do have the advantage of not having to handle small seed you simply push the onion bulb in the ground and wait for the crop to mature.</p> <p></p> <p>We offer a range of<strong> onion seed</strong> including red and white onions, spring onions or salad onions, onions to pickle and shallots.</p> <p></p> <p>Onions are versatile and easy to grow from sets or directly from seed and store well. You will always have onions to hand if you grow your own.</p>
  • Parsnip Seeds
    <p>Parsnips are one longest crops to grow, but they're also the easiest. All you have to do is sow them early in the year and leave them alone. Parsnips require very little maintenance just keep them weed free in the early days. Best enjoyed roasted.</p>
  • Pea Seeds
    <p>Nothing can beat freshly picked peas! A pea's full flavor and freshness can only be experienced when you grow your own. Just make sure you use them quickly once picked, as they tend to lose some flavor if left sitting around. Some support is required when growing pea plants (unless growing a dwarf pea variety).</p> <p>Our personal favorites and easiest to grow are the sugar snap varieties.</p>
  • Potato
    <p>From boiled to mashed or chipped to baked, potatoes are a hugely versatile crop, and for many households provide a staple ingredient in most meals.  Nothing beats a home grown potato. Best enjoyed when dug up fresh, if you ask me.</p>
  • Pumpkin Seeds
    <p>Pumpkins are great fun and quite nutritious, to boot. Growing in time for Halloween can provide delight for the entire family.  There’s nothing wrong with a friendly competition or two, either. I can assure you mine is bigger than yours!</p>
  • Radish Seeds
    <p>Fast and easy is what comes to mind when thinking of radishes. One of the earliest root crops to plant in the spring, radishes offer a harvest in as little as 4 weeks from sowing. With regular plantings every two weeks, you can ensure a continued crop throughout the summer and early winter.</p>
  • Spinach Seeds
    <p>One of the most nutritious greens available in the garden, spinach can be grown all year round making it an ideal crop to have around when other vegetables are in short supply. Trim the plant back when young and use the leaves in salads.</p>
  • Squash Seeds
    <p>Squash is one of those vegetables that comes in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colours. From massive pumpkin-type fruits to something that looks like a flying saucer, the various forms of squash will delight the entire family. We carry both winter and summer varieties, all of which are relatively easy to grow from seed. Just be careful if you have limited space--winter varieties can very easily take over a raised bed or plot if you don’t keep them trained and in check.</p>
  • Swede Seeds
    <p>Swede is the perfect winter vegetable and generally very easy to grow. It is extremely hardy and grows very well in cool, moist climates, making it ideal for the UK.</p>

  • Turnip Seeds
    <p>Turnips are truly one of the most versatile vegetables available to the British gardener. Once sown, they can be left to grow and mature or harvested at a younger stage. They can be enjoyed cooked or eaten raw, and as a bonus, the top of the plant can be enjoyed like spring greens. A very forgiving vegetable to grow, turnips are perfect for first-time gardeners!</p>
  • Kale Seeds
    <p>Kale is very hardy and extremely nutritious, kale has seen resurgence in recent years. Kale is a great source of iron and vitamins A, C and E. Plants and will stand on the plot for a long time in winter so you can be sure of a continued supply over winter and early spring. Red Russian Kale is extremely winter hardy and will do well with a late sowing towards the end of autumn, where as curly green kale can be grown and will thrive any time of the year.</p> <p>Cooking Kale is simple; either boil as you would cabbage or to keep more of the flavour and goodness try stir-frying. Our prefered method of cooking kale is to place in the oven covered in sea salt and bake for 15min, the end effect is similar to crispy seaweed.</p>
  • Fennel Seeds
    <p>Closely resembling a carrot Fennel is easy to grow in the UK tolerating the colder climates I would say it tastes much nicer after first frost much in the way Parsnip does!</p> <p>Can be sown directly into the ground as they dislike root disturbance earlier sowings we would recommend sowing in modules and handle with care when transplanting.</p> <p>Fennel requires full sun and plenty of water during the summer months or bolting is very likely to happen. Fear not should your plant bolt the main bulb is still edible even if the plant has started to go to seed.</p> <p>Fennel Tip: Pre-Soak the seeds 48hrs before planting to aid in germination, regardless if you are sowing direct to ground or in modules.</p>
  • Asparagus
    <p>Nothing in the garden requires more patience than Asparagus. Often planted as bare root crowns, the typical time for harvest from newly planted asparagus crowns is three (3) years! Before you can take the first bumper harvest.</p> <p>Despite the long-time frame, it is much quicker than trying to grow from seed. That said the reward of home-grown asparagus grown from seed, is much more enjoyable and at a much more affordable cost than the average crown.</p> <p>Start today and be rewarded with your first harvest in 4 -5 years. After all all the good things come to those who wait!</p>

    <p>Fast becoming a firm favourite crop here at Growseed!
