Our Feedback
Ordered 60 Pearlwort plugs in mid-July as a low maintenance alternative to grass. Packaging and protection was excellent and plugs were in superb condition. I split each plug into 4 and planted directly into the soil which had been well prepared beforehand. The somewhat warmer summer meant more frequent watering to ensure the plugs settled into place. By next summer I anticipate the soil between the stepping stones in the garden to be completely filled with pearlwort. It is planted in direct sun and deeply shaded areas but all are growing and spreading well. Most of the plugs flowered and the spread has been quite amazing. Because of the layout, a lawnmower or strimmer would not fit so an alternative had to be found. Victoriana Nursery provided the perfect solution - a low maintenance grass alternative which also produces small white flowers. Everyone who sees it loves the look and the idea of no real maintenance. Victoriana Nursery has a range of unusual plants so I will definitely be after future purchases and spreading the word to those who are curious or are 'green fingered'. Great value for money. Keep the area weed free as the plants spread and weeds will be a thing of the past.

Red is better than green!

A fairly new variety of the old-fashioned alternative to green sprouts that has a distinct nutty flavour better than any other sprout.

These sprouts tend to be slightly smaller in size than your traditional green Brussel Sprout but make up for it with a better flavour.

With a taste sweet enough to be used raw in salads, they are also lovely when steamed in the conventional way. And of course they have the added interest of being crimson red in colour - cheering up any meal.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects if allowed to 'go over' and flower (so if you have room leave any plants in that have gone too far rather than pulling them out straight away).

  • Set out 2 feet (60 cm) by 2 feet (60 cm) apart.
  • Harvest mid September - April.
  • Top Tips
  • Plant firmly, and in windy areas consider staking.
  • Protect from pigeons - pigeons love Brassicas (so do partridges)
  • Take precautions against the dreaded Cabbage White butterfly - inspect your crop regularly, spray with our BioFriend Plant Defence or use a physical barrier such as insect netting.
  • Harvest from the bottom of the plant upwards.
  • Sprouts harvested after frosts will have better flavour than those harvested before.
Available from approximately mid April 2019
