Harvesting vegetables from your garden is hugely satisfying, and you'll revolutionise your tastebuds: food picked just minutes before it's on your plate has a colour, flavour and crunchiness that have to be experienced to be believed.
We have everything in our Petersfield garden centre to turn your garden into a haven of productivity: here's a selection to get you started:
- Seeds: most veg are grown from seeds, from tomatoes to carrots and lettuces. Take your pick from the huge range in our garden centre; we've also got ready-spaced seed tapes and delicious heritage vegetables for you to try.
- Sets and seed potatoes: from early spring we stock seed potatoes, plus onions, shallots and garlic from sets – easy-to-handle baby bulbs to plant straight into the ground.
- Plug plants: for the ultimate in convenience we also stock plug plants -baby veg plants ready to go straight into containers or out into the garden.
- Perennial vegetables: great value for money, these include some real delicacies: in our garden centre you'll find asparagus crowns, able to crop for 20 years, and stately globe artichokes looking as good as they taste.
