I have just tried growing your Victorian colossal pea, with fantastic results. We have a small garden and my wife found these thinking we would get more for the same space as the 'normal' peas. Problem is they are so heavily laden with pods they are tearing from the support frame and I have had to tie them up with soft string. A problem that is very welcome. I have just sown more in the greenhouse to plant out for a later crop. I have also tried your coloured carrots but too soon to try, but I will be ordering more seeds and greater variety in the future. Best wishes

Supplied as a packet of approximately 50 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
An amazing plant that everyone should grow, and it's so easy.
Great accompaniment for fish dishes as it adds a 'salty sea' taste to the meal which is amazing.
Can sometimes be bought at your fishmonger, but by growing it yourself, your'll always have a good supply of samphire - you can even eat it raw (it's really tasty).
Also known as glasswort, sea asparagus and sea pickle, Marsh Samphire traditionally grows along the coast.
