The Shop Is Now Live For New Orders -See Below How You Can Order
Ordering for 2020
After A very difficult Summer in 2019 when I admit I got things badly wrong I was going to give up mail order entirely, Especially after the amount of threats and abuse I have had which is totally unacceptable, But many of my most loyal customers pleaded with me to carry on.
So in order to do that with the aid of some great software I have decided to make the website a member only site for those that still want to order plants, The shop will only be visible to members only and will not be available to non-members or be visible to search engines, Because of the extra costs involved in doing it this way I have decided to charge a small membership fee of £5 per year to cover the extra costs involved But I will be adding more and more benefits to the membership over the course of the winter to make it good value for money and this will allow me to make the business what I always wanted it to be a one stop place for Tomato growers to share my passion and experience and I think limiting the number of customers is the only way to achieve that.
I have also added a calendar to the checkout for picking your delivery slot which I have limited to 20 orders per day over 3 days per week from Late March to Mid July so if you want an early slot you need to order early before they fill up once they are full that’s it.
So Priority for 2020 will go to existing customers first If you wish to Join and order please e-mail me @ email@example.com and I will send you the membership link
Its Possible I may also produce larger plants for 2020 I found the plants suffered somewhat in the polytunnel in the 6cm coir pots and were not as good as what i had at the previous nursery I am not sure if that was due to the difference between Polythene and glass or if it was becasue the glass was more shaded at the old nursery, So I may produce them in 9cm pots which will take more packing but will be better plants The orders are also going to be made up at the potting stage so we can just lift and pack when were sending them out which will speed things up a lot as its the trying to find varieties in the forest of tomatoes that slows it down
All my plants are grown in Organic wool and bracken compost which is the best compost I have ever used and the plants are grown in 6cm or 8cm coir pots depending on the plants – See below for more info on this.
Not sure if you have the knowledge ? I have that covered too pre-sign up now for my Tomato growing course coming soon or join my facebook advice group

I also Sell Herbs, Aubergines, Courgettes, Cucumbers, Marrows, Melons, Summer and Winter Sqaush, Pumpkins, Chilli Peppers and Sweet Peppers These can all be found on the Buy Plants Now drop down menu above
As well as a few Sundries direct from me and a good range of other sundries available via Me from Amazon
All of my tomatoes are grown in wool compost which is made from a mix of Bracken, Wool and Horse manure by a company in the lake district.
The wool slow releases Nitrogen and Bracken slow releases Potash meaning the plants need very little feeding during the season. I warn you its not cheap but the results are stunning and what you spend on the compost you will gain back in using less if any at all liquid feeding throughout the season and increased yields.
Most tomatoes are grown and shipped in 6cm coir pots when the plants are at an early stage they are sent in blister packs made from recycled plastic that can be recycled again later in the season,
When the plants are larger they are sent wrapped in corrugated card Cucumbers and Courgettes are also shipped in 6cm coir pots or a jumbo plug the same size as the 6cm pots,
The herbs, Peppers and Aubergines are all grown and sold in 9cm pots or I may do them in 8cm Coir Pots this year as well as all the dwarf/patio tomato varieties
