July 2022

Hello to you all and welcome to our July 2022 Blog.

Our monthly newsletter was released a few days ago, don't miss out Subscribe and be the first in the know!

The big news was that we have added a month by month sowing guide. The question of "Am I too late to sow...?" was asked so frequently we decided that it would be really helpful to give you the information you need at your fingertips. There is loads of stuff you can sow in July and August - so go on treat yourself and use all your available space to keep your harvesting going. We also welcome summer with the discount code SUMMER10, valid to 23.30pm Sunday 3rd July. Use at checkout and you will receive 10% off

Lot's of new products were introduced, such as two Pak Choi variations, a green white stemmed one and a really interesting red one. A winter hardy White Lisbon Spring Onion so you can have produce over winter for your stir fries and also be ahead of the game come spring. Sunflowers, always a favourite, we couldn't resist adding both Autumn Beauty and Red Sun. Finally we added the wildflower Yellow Rattle, which is proving incredibly popular, although don't forget we do two other wildflower mixes as well!

Sal, of Sal's Kitchen fame surpassed herself! This month's recipe was radish pakora accompanied by a spicy green dip. We love the way that Sal embraces our no waste ethos and comes up with such great recipes. We had a taster of them and can happily confirm that they were absolutely yummy!

In The Herb Garden this month's herb was Basil. Classically known for the wonderful marriage it makes with garlic, tomatoes and aubergines it also has some other great characteristics. Rich in vitamin A and C it has many medical uses (only use under the advice of a medical professional and not if you are, or suspect you may be, pregnant). Other uses include the belief that pots of Basil will deter house flies and when rubbed on an insect bite will lessen the irritation.

Anyway, off you go to enjoy your growing and we will see you further down the garden path!
