Thank you all very much for the two trees that arrived yesterday. As you may remember they were for my wife's birthday and she was absolutely delighted. We have followed the instructions and they are now looking very nice in our small but crammed garden. They were well packed and even as she unwrapped them she had no idea what they were, a perfect surprise. So impressed was she with the service, I think other orders may follow.

Red Cabbages are something just a little bit different and special that is very popular in the Shirley household!
Whilst they can be cooked and eaten like any conventional cabbage they really come into their own as a vegetable when 'pickled with sugar and vinegar; this is a Shirley family favourite and Nanna Shirley's recipe can be found in our recipe section.
We have carefully blended a selection of Red Cabbage varieties which will provide a successive harvest and get over the all 'coming at once' problem inherent with growing just one variety.
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).
