Just to let you know my order of 5 plants arrived safely. I am really pleased with them as I have always wanted the more unusual plants instead of trying to grow from seeds but unfortunately I have not been able to source them within my local area. The service you provided was excellent, the packaging was sturdy, the delivery charge was very fair and they were delivered very quickly. I also appreciated that the plants had been watered well in preparation for their journey. Thank-you so much. Kind regards

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.
