We’re delighted to be stocking personalised planting kits featuring seeds from TV presenter and author James Wong, the enthusiastic ethnobotanist renowned for thinking outside the box when it comes to edible flowers, fruit and vegetables. In the UK we might not know it yet, but everything from green tea and kiwi fruit, to saffron and sweet potatoes will grow perfectly happily on our blustery North Atlantic island. So why should we limit ourselves to spuds, sprouts and swede?
We’ve chosen 5 of his easiest to grow and popular plants to go with our brilliant square crate to make a range of lovely gifts for any keen gardener or allotmenteer. You can see them all in our planting kits section.
“It’s not about growing unconventional crops for the sake of it. It’s about achieving delicious, high-yielding foods that are expensive to buy, yet easy to grow” James Wong
