Quick note to say plants arrived safely yesterday, are already potted up and basking in the greenhouse. I've had to purchase my tomatoes online for yrs, never been wholly satisfied with them when they arrived - usually spindly things that need a lot of faffing to get going. But these are amazing! At last, found a decent seller! Thank you. 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.
