Broccoli Raab Spring Rapini, Spinach BloomsdaleOrach RedCorianderCorn Salad and Salad Burnet.

We sow lettuces each month to keep in constant supply, now we focus on the cooler season varieties like WinterSt Vincent, and Speckled. Now is also a good time to get Asian greens like Mizuna, and Tat Soi in, as well as Rocket and Wild Arugula to keep in supply. There are still a few cabbage white butterfly out there so remember to protect your baby brassicas from them. We do this with frost cloth, then cover until the butterflies disappear is a great technique.

Don’t forget about flowers for the winter garden! Calendulas, Poppies, Lupins and Sweet Peas are frost hardy and beautiful!

We often follow the biodynamic calendar and their recommendation to sow seeds at Moon Opposition Saturn, for these dates, check our website.

Our Website is where to find the most up to date information on what we have available at all times during the year. We encourage orders through this medium, but of course get in touch if you cannot access our seeds this way. We have a list of our seeds and their descriptions we can email to you if need be, so please get in touch if the website does not work for you.

And a reminder that selections of our seeds are also available from our Retail Outlets around the country.
