Organic Vegetable Plants

I would love to grow organic vegetables for everybody - but I just do not have the time.

Or perhaps the patience !

Very happy to do some very serious pottering in the greenhouse growing Chillies, Herbs and Salads, but all that hand weeding, all that string, all that picking off the bugs
( I love Butterflies - but them Cabbage White Caterpillars - Grrrrr ) itís really hard, demanding, time consuming work.

Thatís why Sheila and David Jenkins after 27 years at Green Acres Organic Farm have decided to retire.

Years of getting up at 4 a.m. didnít really worry Sheila, but she eventually decided to persuade David to take it easy after she saw him weeding thousands of leeks - while using a walking stick to help him bend !

They really were pioneers, and not just in Herefordshire, when they decided organic was the way they wanted to produce.

Regarded eccentric perhaps at the start, now we are all beginning to realise, as they did all those years ago, that growing with nature, at natures pace, is by far the best way in the long run.

Itís one way of ensuring there is a long run.

However, and this is the good news at least for us, Sheila could not persuade David to retire completely.
Heís still keeping up the veg box delivery round ( they were pioneers at that too ) and they have agreed to grow vegetable plants for us.

Loads of new plants for my new raised bed, shown on part of my new raised bed !
So all those years of wonderful experience can be planted in your garden, theyíre certainly planted in ours !

Their expertise ranges over so many different veggies, from Squash to Spring Cabbage, Beetroot to Broccoli, Courgettes to Calabrese, Tomatoes to, Oh I donít know - you think of another ĎTí !
This is the BRIGHT Lights Chard I was telling you about Cabbages ?
Well you can have Red, Pointed,Savoy or just plain Round

Some Lettuces ?
Well there is Lollo Rosso, Cos,Webbs and others I canít rememberer

Cauliflowers and Calabrese ( How did those cabbages get in there ?)
Beautifully flowered Runner Beans and Dwarf and Climbing French Beans too.

There are just so many vegetables to choose from, take a look at the table below.
- there must be something you like !.

ď Ah Ha ď, I hear you say, in that ď I trusted MPís onceĒ voice.

ďAll that experience, all that careful organic tending all those varieties - all that cost you are going to charge me !Ē

No we are not.

6 Vegetable plants are packed in each biodegradable coir tray.
(They will serve you as seed trays for a year or so before you compost them.)

Four trays - 24 organic plants
will cost you £11.95
Sold Out

Eight trays - 48 organic plants
will cost you £18.50
Sold Out

( Thatís LESS than 30p per established plant - not tiny little seedlings that I was sold once ! )

Unfortunately we have to ask you to contribute to the cost of transport - itís £6.95 to you.
(Although itís £8 to us !! )

If you would like more than 8 trays - Iím sure something can be arranged.

Please just tell me in the ď CommentsĒ box on the order what sort
of veggies you would like.
We will certainly get them to you if available.
If not we will substitute - unless you tell us not to !!
