ABOUT US

We just love good food and we don’t think we are the only ones.  There is nothing better than being able to go to your kitchen windowsill or step outside your door and find an array of tastes to inspire you and to add flavour to any dish. But we are not just food lovers we have a passion for our natural environment and the more environmental destruction we see the more passionate we become about growing edible plants for a sustainable future to not only sustain ourselves, but the wildlife around us.  Afterall we need our pollinators, the birds, the bees, the butterflies, the hoverflies…  Without the pollinators we have no pears, hazlenuts, poppyseeds, did I say Cider?

No chemicals are used on our plants instead we use natural integrated pest management systems.  We have been using increasing peat free compost ratios and this year we are trialling a hopeful peat alternative, sourced and produced in the U.K. and only a stones’ throw away.  Permaculture, basically sustainable living and sustainable produce is close to our hearts without forgetting the quality of our plants.

We know the highest yields are produced in small spaces, such as windowsills, window boxes, patio containers and small gardens.  Basil, chives and coriander are my windowsill essentials and a few tiny leaves can jazz up the most basic of meals.  We love growing new varieties on the nursery, such as the delicious hot and spicy oregano to add to our windowsill and garden favourites.
