Large jar: £10.00

Bouquets: £15.00 upwards

A bucket of flowers to arrange yourself: starts at £20.00

Annuals:

New, pretty and unusual annuals are ready this week. Some have quirky and interesting shapes like Craspedia and Limonium which look great growing in the garden, but also dry extremely well. Scabious Fata Morgana was the best discovery from last year and has come back again this one so should perhaps be in perennial section. Acrolinium is another annual which is beautiful both fresh and dried.

Perennials:

Vegetables:

Courgette Gold Rush: 9cm pot £2.00 – an extremely productive, thin skinned yellow variety which is also very tasty. The roots are just reaching the bottom of the pots and they have been hardened off.

Cucumber ‘La Diva’: 7cm pot £1.50 – a delicious, sweet tasting mini cucumber which has a thin smooth skin. The plants are still quite small, but have been hardened off.

Cucumber ‘Burpless Tasty Green’: £7 cm pot £1.50 – a smooth skinned cucumber with a very good flavour. Again, the plants have been hardened off and are still small.
