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

    Rose Hip Syrup Recipe

    Ingredients

    • 4 bs (2kg) Cluster Colourama or Trailblazer rose hips
    • 5 pints (3l) water
    • 2 lbs (2kg) sugar

    Method

    • Put halved rose hips into a large preserving pan with sufficient cold water to cover, bring to boil and simmer until the hips are soft.
    • Strain through a piece of muslin or a scalded jelly bag. Don't be tempted to squeeze the liquid out of the fruit as this will cause the syrup to become cloudy.
    • When all the liquid has passed through the bag, put it into a clean pan, bring to the boil and reduce it to about 2½ pints (1.5l).
    • Then add sugar to taste. When the sugar has dissolved, leave the syrup to cool slightly.
    • Pour into clean screw-top bottles.
    • Store in a cool cupboard. Refrigerate bottles once opened.

    One tablespoon night and morning can ward off winter ills and chills. Rose hip syrup also makes a delicious drink if diluted with sparkling mineral water or soda water, or try drizzling it over ice cream.
