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.

It's all very well producing a carrot fly-resistant carrot, but ultimately it is flavour that is important. In our opinion Resistafly has an excellent flavour, good colour and good shape - what more could you ask for?

A hybrid of Nantes bred by the British seedhouse Tozer, Resistafly has excellent tolerance to carrot root fly.

Best grown as a Second Early or Maincrop.

  • Sow late April to June.
  • Sow thinly in rows 12" (30 cm) apart. Sow in ½" (1 cm) deep drills.
  • Thin out to 2-3" (5-7.5 cm) apart when large enough to handle - make sure you eat the thinnings!
