Leeks and Shallots
KING RICHARD LEEK
A very early variety. They have extra long, slim stems which don't need earthing up and are ideal for slicing.
BLEU DE SOLAISE LEEK
A gorgeous French heirloom. A later season leek, the leaves turn a dark blue-green as it gets cold.
Plant produces good yields of very flavourful shallots. A gourmet favourite. Excellent storage variety.
De Cicco Broccoli is a reliable, multi-cut variety producing a compact bluish-green central head followed by a prolific set of side spears.
A cross of broccoli and kale, it produces loose heads of purple florets surrounded by deeply serrated, fuchsia veined leaves. The greens are extra tender when young, and sweet as the tastiest kale as they mature. An impressive production of side shoots provides a continuous harvest of delicious florets.
A great fall broccoli produces a good size dark blue-green main head with lots of side shoots.
EARLY JERSEY WAKEFIELD
An heirloom early maturing variety that produces slightly conical 3-pound heads of cabbage.
Heads up quickly into a neat and tidy little red cabbages, perfect for those who want a smaller vegetable.
A beautiful, very old and exceptionally tasty heirloom variet
