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

Here in our Father's Day Gifts category you'll find lots of ideas to suit all budgets and tastes. If your Dad is a whiz in the kitchen (check out our culinary herbs and fruit tree collections), prefers to grow the veg rather than cook it (gardening tools and seed collections), is a bookworm (gardening books), or perhaps just likes to relax in the evening sun with tipple of choice (cider apple trees, gin and homegrown lemons!), you'll find a perfect Father's Day gift right here.
And if you can't make up your mind, why not opt for a gift voucher of the denomination of your choice which can be redeemed online, in person or over the telephone!
