Our Feedback
Reading your website, I entirely agree with this quote you feature:"It is no mistake that when you buy their plants they arrive packed so carefully that even if they have travelled hundreds of miles, they're still perfect on arrival." I unpacked this order, after collecting it from the pier where our freight is delivered by ferry. The layers of plants amazed me, so carefully laid so closely together, and still damp in heavy duty waterproof bag. Instructed by the absent gardener I gave them another drink, and placed the plants upright in their packaging, in the greenhouse, to await his return, checked next morning that they had not been eaten, and were still damp. Look forward to future use!

Cape Gooseberries

A fruit with many names! Often called goldenberry or physalis as well as cape gooseberry.

Cape gooseberries are often used as decoration for desserts in restaurants and can now be found in supermarkets, but the flavour of your own home-grown fruit, from the plants that we can deliver to your door is so much better. More...

Related to the tomato and tomatillo the cape gooseberry has a flavour all its own, sort of a mix between a tomato and a pineapple.

Whilst these plants can be grown outside throughout the UK during the summer they do require frost protection, so don't forget to find a space for them indoors during the winter.
