Thank you very much for the Orange tree complete with flowers and baby oranges. You truly are a Victorian nursery I used to pack all the trees I sent out by rail using straw bundles similar to yours. Actually we used long straw and no outer polythene.We also used twine macramed on the outside to hold the bundle together. There is nothing wrong with your packing. It remided me of the old days. I am 78. Now I have to find a suitable container whivh no doubt will be expensive. Versailles sell them and a pottery in the south of France makes the other tradional type. I was a bit surprised when I visited Kew Gardens, that they did not have one single orange tree in their orangerie. Lovely web site and lovely young orange tree in perfect order.

Supplied as a packet of approximately 50 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
An amazing plant that everyone should grow, and it's so easy.
Great accompaniment for fish dishes as it adds a 'salty sea' taste to the meal which is amazing.
Can sometimes be bought at your fishmonger, but by growing it yourself, your'll always have a good supply of samphire - you can even eat it raw (it's really tasty).
Also known as glasswort, sea asparagus and sea pickle, Marsh Samphire traditionally grows along the coast.
