A common sight in our Grandparent's gardens and allotments, Rhubarb is an easy and almost indestructible plant to grow!

Used in pies, tarts, crumbles, sweets and flavouring homemade drinks, it's a versatile plant. Having a long, productive life, often for as long as ten years, it produces sizable plants that require space to spread. They also have a deep root system, so if container gardening is your thing, look to open the bottom of the pot so the roots can access the ground beneath.

Like many plants in our gardens, Rhubarb does have its dark side. Only the stems are eaten as the leaves contain oxalic acid, which is poisonous to us, but safe to compost. Additionally, you must avoid feeding the leaves to any livestock or pets!

The variety 'Victoria' is one of the easiest rhubarbs to grow and will produce a good crop of greenish coloured, deliciously sweet and juicy stalks that are not very stringy. This one is ideal for well-drained areas of the vegetable garden, and once planted it should not be moved.

'Glaskins-perpetual' originates from Brighton in the 1920s and is a reliable, heavy cropper. The red stalks are long & tender and are reputed to have the lowest content of oxalic acid of all rhubarb. It also establishes quickly and is early to mature - harvested lightly in the first year by snapping or cutting the outer stalks, that will allow it to clump up for the following season.

Many people have fond and nostalgic memories of eating rhubarb desserts with their family. If you you have any growing and cooking tips or if you'd like to share a memory, let us know in the comments below ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️

Making a perfect gift and coming in lots of different flower shapes, Amaryllis are one of our firm favourites.

Start these bulbs in a warm and light place, keeping their compost moist by watering around the edge of the bulb. Once the buds are showing, water regularly, being careful not to over-water.

The secret to lengthening flowering time is to place in a cooler position once the flowers start to show. If the stem gets a little top heavy, you can add a plant stick for support!

Adding a touch of architectural green to shady rooms, many ferns are fantastic as natural air filters. Help them flourish by keeping their soil moist and they’ll work hard to improve your air quality, especially as we're having to stay inside more.

This variety, the Boston Fern, was popularised by the Victorians, as it thrives in a cool place with high humidity and indirect light. It's also animal safe, making it ideal for those pets that like to experiment with their food!

Do slugs like them? Don't like slug pellets and the hedgehog likes the slugs!

There's still some time left to plant spring flowering bulbs before the colder weather sets in 🌷🌷🌷

For all you apple and pear growers - its time to get those grease bands on!

Winter moths are active around this time of year and can be trapped by applying grease bands to your trees, improving the quality of your fruit next year 🍏🍎🍏

For those wanting to plant fruit trees, autumn is the best time to plant them as they can get a head start on establishing their root system over the winter months.

Available as summer and autumn-fruiting varieties, a few raspberry plants in your garden will reward you with plenty of fruit from midsummer until mid autumn!

Ideal for homemade pies, making jam or eating fresh, they're a popular garden fruit that's easy to grow. They also freeze well if you end up with a glut!

The secret to trouble free growing is to plant them in a moisture retentive soil which is slightly acidic, well-drained and weed free. They thrive in sunny conditions and are traditionally grown in rows running north to south so that they can experience the sun throughout the day. It also helps if there is some shelter from wind as the flowers are self-fertile and pollinated by insects.

Relatively maintenance free, they'll require a slow release, general-purpose feed around the base of the plants in the spring. This is also a good time to add a mulch of garden compost or well-rotted farmyard manure to help prevent weeds growing.

Autumn fruiting varieties can be pruned in February, whilst summer varieties need cutting back to ground level after harvesting.

With lots of varieties in stock now, there's something for everyone.
