Dear Victoriana Team, After a long wait my Samphire plants have finally arrived and I am so impressed I immediately wanted to order some more. Oh and by the way, thank you for packing all of your plants so well. Even though it is quite frustrating to sieve through all the shredded newspaper and then trying to dispose of it with bits blowing all over the place(especially with bigger plants), your system really works and seems to be the best way of protecting the plants. I have had some bad experience with other garden centres before and actually vowed never to buy plants online again, yet you have really managed to convince me that it can be quite safe. Thank you very much.

Supplied as compost block grown plants (not bare root crowns).This Product is Available Now.
A tried and trusted heritage variety from the 1800's that has won acclaim for adaptability, reliability, yield and flavour; even now many commercial growers grow this variety almost exclusively.
This extract from a garden journal (sadly unknown) says it all...
"In 1872 I sowed seed of this variety, and last year I planted 5 beds with the 1 year old plants. At the time of sowing I must say that I felt rather dubious as to the dimensions of this Asparagus as mentioned in seed catalogues and advertisements. I have now pleasure in saying that in point of size it is a colossal variety".
Acclaim continues to this day and only recently it was recommended in the River Cottage Vegetable Patch Handbook.
Quick into growth and early maturing, it produces thick chunky spears of sublime flavour. This variety is truly hard to fault
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
