I would like to thank the nursery and staff for the order I received this morning Wednesday 17th July . After placing my order on Sunday I began to have doubts ,this was due to a bad experience with a large producer of plug size bedding plants earlier this year . All the doubts have proved unfounded, not only did the order arrive on the day but it came early enough for me to pot the plants before going off to work .The size and quality of the plants are first class and are real value for money . Once we have finished clearing one of the overgrown flower beds our new plants will hopefully produce a good display for several years . Thank you

Also known as glasswort, sea asparagus and sea pickle, Marsh Samphire traditionally grows along the coast.
Once described as the poor man's Asparagus this is now fast becoming a trendy garnish in many of the gourmet restaurants. That said, this is a fantastic vegetable in its own right or can be made into a wonderful pickled vegetable.
This is not something 'new' - in his writings Shakespeare made reference to Samphire growing on the White Cliffs of Dover and the workings of the Channel Tunnel were reclaimed into a new area of land called Samphire Hoe.
