I find your website useful and easy to us. I also enjoy your changing ads. in papers and mags. On Saturday at the Garden Organic AGM Professor Ian Lang, talking about Food Security urged us all to grow more fruit. He pointed out that in Britain we produce a mere 5% of the fruit we eat, and we should consume 9 a day not just 5 a day fruit and veg. Last November I planted your Polka raspberries. They are now strong tall vigorous canes, tallest I have ever grown and producing throughout the summer. I'll need steps to pick the late ones!! My first purchase from you was before the web, shrub roses for my allotment for the vit. C. Enjoyed your family history.

Supplied as a packet of approximately 40 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
We first grew this variety in 2008 and were immediately able to recognise it strength and cold tolerance compared to other varieties - it just romped away! But a plant that grows well is of no use at all if the flavour is not good so when the Autumn came we were really pleased to discover that as flavour and texture goes this is 'up there' with any of its competitors.
Specifically developed to withstand lower temperatures (which is what conventional varieties can't put up with), 'Seville' produces a heavy crop (2 -3 cobs per plant) of excellent quality cobs. Average cob size is 6" - 8" (15 - 20 cm) long and always well filled with small juicy kernels.
The plants themselves are vigorous and robust making this a variety that is impossible to fault in any way - and due to its cold tolerance the perfect variety for more Northern and colder gardens.
If you are growing just one variety of Sweetcorn make sure it is 'Seville'!
