Golden Marjoram (Small Plant)
By admin | |
A small plant of golden marjoram - it has bright leaves and pink flowers in the summer, a soft herb perfect for salads or garnishing dishes. Marjorams are generally used fresh, unlike their close relation oregano, whose leaves are more likely to be dried and stored. Most marjorams also have a more delicate flavour. Leaves and flowering sprigs are popular in Greek and Italian meat dishes, soups, stuffings, tomato sauces and pasta, where they are best used towards the end of the cooking process. Leaves are used to flavour oil and vinegar. Where to plant and how to look after your plant Water pots regularly, but avoid overwatering or the roots may rot. Keep plants compact by trimming growth after flowers fade in summer, then give them a boost by applying a liquid fertiliser. Plants do not like to be too wet in winter, so place pots in a sheltered spot and raise onto pot feet to allow excess water to drain away. For a winter supply of leaves, lift plants in autumn, pot them up and place them in a well lit spot under cover. Cut back dead stems to the base. Back to the shop Back to the shop

Jostaberry Plant
By admin | |

Jostaberry is  a cross between a blackcurrant and gooseberries.  It forms a very vigorous spineless shrub, growing up to 1.8-2m tall and a similar size across, and is self fertile so only one need be grown. The fruits are larger than a blackcurrant and are dark reddish black in colour. These are more like a gooseberry when slightly unripe, but similar to a sweetish blackcurrant when fully ripe in late July, early August.

Jostaberry bushes begin to crop well after two years, and up to 4-5kg fruit per bush is possible. Grows best in well-drained soil with lots of organic matter in full sun or partial shade. Plant from late autumn to mid-spring 1.5m apart. Prune in winter removing the oldest branches and clipping damaged or low hanging branches. Back to the shop

Rhubarb Plant
By admin | |
Potted Rhubarb Plant, propagated at the Windmill Community Gardens in Margate using Chemical free growing methods. Tips on how to grow: Rhubarb needs an open, sunny site with moist, but free-draining soil, as it dislikes being waterlogged in winter. Avoid planting in sites that are particularly prone to late frosts, as the young stems may be damaged. Prepare the planting site by digging in two bucketful of well-rotted manure per square metre/yard. Then dig a planting hole and position the plant so the tip of the crown is just visible above the soil. If planting more than one, space them 75–90cm (30–36in) apart. Rhubarb can also be planted in very large pots, at least 50cm (20in) deep and wide. Keep rhubarb free of weeds by covering the ground with a mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost, but don’t cover the crown as it will rot. Water regularly in dry spells, so the soil stays moist and the plant continues growing until autumn. When the top growth dies back in autumn, remove the dead leaves to expose the crown to frost – this will help to break dormancy and ensure a good crop of stalks the following year. Back to the shop
