I have ordered from Mr Fothergills (who seem to be a bit cheaper on average on veg seeds) these seeds.
For the new raised beds:
Runner Bean Painted Lady - this is the only runner bean I've ever grown really successfully, so I'm giving it another go. It's a heritage variety, and I think that may mean it's more resistant to the dreaded slugs
Squash (Butternut) Hercules F1
Radish Bright Lights
Beetroot Burpees Golden - never tried golden beetroot before. Actually, never grown beetroot! Got to be worth a try.
Green Manure Phacelia Tanacetifolia - I don't normally bother with green manures, but this is a decorative one and I'm hoping to use it to keep the raised beds in order if i don't have time to use them at any point.
Peas Dwarf Sweet Green
not a huge fan of peas, but very young sweet ones are nice. Both of these are supposed to be edible pod and all when very young, and also the pea is a very sweet one, not the mealy sort.
Red Cabbage Kalibos
Pumpkin Aladdin F1
For the greenhouse:
Aubergine Moneymaker F1
Cape Gooseberry Golden Berry - I always do well with physalis in my greenhouse as long as I can keep the mildew down, and they are really expensive to buy, so well worth growing.
Lettuce Catalogna - this is a cut and come again variety, I'm hoping to grow it for a couple of months till it gets too hot in the greenhouse. I'm not even going to try to grow lettuce outdoorswhere the slugs can get at it, I just don't think it will work for me.
I may plant some of the radishes and turnips in the greenhouse as well if all goes well, for early / late crops of each.
And from Thompson Morgan, I have bought these plants:
1 bare root Aronia Berry : Viking
Aronia (black chokeberry) seems to be being launched as a new and trendy berry, it's supposed to be easy to grow, very tolerant of different soils, like it damp and between a cranberry and a blueberry in flavour. That description fits my garden, so I thought I'd give it a go in the area where the very old redcurrents used to be. Apparently it's also got very good autumn colour.
Kiwi Actinidia Arguta
This is not the usual species, but a relative which is supposedly much hardier, which has smaller bald fruits. I had a go at growing these before, but I think I paid too much attention to the blurbs that stressed how tough the thing was supposed to be, and it died on me. This time I'm going to give it a really well prepared bed and the sunniest spot in the garden.
The Extend the Season Collection of strawberries, which is 4 Alice, 4 Florence, and 4 Honeoye. I have a mountain of strawberry runners from my old plants, but I thought it was worth trying some new varieties.
