AS I said in my previous post I've been intrigued by James Wong's range of plants and seeds at Suttons and as they were having a sale on some of them I overindulged!
I was looking at buy a couple of packets of seeds when I saw they had a collection of twenty reduced from £40 down to £10, there were many things in there I fancy trying, even though it's too late to plant many of them this year, most seed keeps well past it's sell by date. I planted some squash seed this year that was over 10 years old and it still came up!
|20 packets Seeds for £10 reduced from £40|
There's some great ones in there including electric daises, cucmeleons, musk melons, Bergamot, Quinoa, Japanese Beefsteak plant, Tomatillo, white apline strawberries to name but a few.
|The two I really wanted to try - the electric daisies sound great fun!|
Although it is late this year I've decided to risk planting a few and see how they do, the cucmelons sound just right for my girls, little melons favoured like cucumber and lime and the electric daises that are like popping candy just sound like fun! White alpine strawberries and musk melons might also be worth a shot this year, I'll keep you posted on how they do!
|A nice feature is the seeds have much longer instructions than normal and recipe ideas inside|
To be honest I'm quite impressed by this range of seeds. Each comes with great instructions and then inside there's the history or extra information on the plant as well as some recipes to try out.
