The garden seems to be speeding into early Summer and the tulips are making way for the ranunculus, fragrant sweet rocket, cornflowers and geums. There will be a small selection of flower jars and bunches at the market, but please pre-order if you know you would like one as the plot hasn’t swung into full production yet.

Jam jars: £6.50 each

Pickle jars: £10

Bouquets start at £15

Tomato Plants: £1.80 each

All the tomato plants are in 9cm pots of peat free compost and are cordon varieties which need to have their side shoots removed and to be tied to a support as they grow. They have all been chosen for their excellent flavour and the fact they can all be grown outside.

Sungold: an orange cherry this is one of the sweetest and delicious tomatoes ever.

Gardener’s Delight: a red cherry tomato which is a reliable old favourite with great flavour.

Black Krim: a large, beefsteak tomato with the most amazing flavour.

Stupicke Polni Rane: a medium sized tomato which tastes very good and is bred to have blight resistance which makes it very suitable for growing outdoors.

Courgettes in 9cm pots £2.00: green varieties, Defender and Romanesco and yellow variety, Gold Rush.

Flowering Plants:

There will be a selection of annuals including Cosmos Rubenza, sunflowers, pink chinese forget me nots as well as some perennials. Annuals start at £1.00 a 7cm pot and perennials at £2.50 a 9cm pot.
