GREEK BASILBasil is perfect for growing in pots. It has a sweet, aniseed flavour and is perfect with your tomatoes. You will know when it needs watered as it will start to wilt.
Carrots are high in the antioxidant beta carotene which converts to Vitamin A (to keep our bones, teeth and skin healthy). This cheeky chappie is fast growing and great for sowing early. Bright orange in colour and sweet to taste.
NASTURTIUM ‘Tom Thumb’ These little fire-crackers look great and you can eat the leaves and flowers! They have a peppery flavour and are great for growing on windowsills, containers and pots. They are fab for decorating cupcakes.
Did you know that a tomato is actually a fruit… not a veggie as it grows from a flowering plant. What would we do without them… no pizza or pasta sauce! That’s why there are over 7500 different varieties of tomato around the world! Delicious, sweet flavour and can be grown inside or out.
Sowing outside: Outside in June, however start inside and transplant. Prefers a site in full sun.
Harvest: July and August (if grown outside).
Uses: Salads, pizza & pasta dishes, sauces, chicken, with cheese & ice-cubes.
Sowing outside: April to June. Sow seeds thinly into growing site ¾“ deep. Sow carefully so you don’t have to thin out seedlings later. Grow in a weed free, light, well-drained soil. Great for growing in containers if you have limited space. Grow alongside spring onions,leeks or mint to help deter carrot root fly.
Uses: Soups, veggie dishes,
Sowing Outside: Move your tomatoes into either a grow-bag or pot in a sunny position once all risk of jack frost has passed. When ready to plant out, acclimatise by placing outside during daylight hours and returning indoors during darkness over a period of 7 days. Transplant the seedlings you have grown indoors to a sheltered spot. Water often to keep compost moist. Feed weekly using tomato food once you see the first fruits are showing on the flowers. If sowing directly outside, sow seeds from end May after all risk of frost has passed. You may have to give them a little hand by staking them to keep them standing.
Harvest: When ripe from July to September.
Uses: Salads, sauces, pastas, snacking, roasted and with cheese.
Nasturtium ‘Tom Thumb’
