Our home-grown produce
As well as these wonderful plants listed above, we have also grown our own vegetable crop for the kitchen garden that will feature inside our large, bespoke Messenger greenhouse. We nurtured these plants at Torberry farm using Mole seeds which were great quality and had excellent germination rates. Gardening charity, Thrive, have also been growing for the event and have given us a flourishing crop which you will hopefully see within the cold frames.
Please excuse the possibility that there may be some plants that need replacing at the last moment to ensure our stand looks at its very best for the whole week.
