CHILLI ETHIOPIAN BROWN IS ALSO CALLED BERBERE AND ARISES FROM A SMALL STRETCH ALONG THE EASTERN COAST AFRICA NEAR THE RED SEA. MEDIUM TO HOT HEAT. VERY RARE IN CULTIVATION, VERY LIMITED STOCKS!

These fascinating chilies trace their origins to the first varieties brought to Africa by Portuguese explorers in the 15th and 16th centuries. Often found in markets dried and used as a spice called Berbere, they are a staple in many African cuisines.

The glossy, smooth fruits have a medium heat that builds gradually. They are an excellent source of vitamins C, B6, and A, as well as iron, copper, and potassium. Additionally, they contain capsaicin, which has anti-inflammatory properties and has been linked to weight loss.

Grow Notes
Wear gloves when handling seed and fruit, keep away from children. Wash hands thoroughly after handling, especially before touching your face.

Plant in full sun but keep well-watered. They need a well-drained soil enriched with plenty of organic matter.

Can be grown in containers or gardens. Once fruiting plants may need staking if starting to lean. Pick regularly to encourage more fruit.

Chilli plants are susceptible to mildews so water at the base and don’t leave the plant leaves wet overnight, best to water in the morning or at least a few hours before sundown.

Sow
Sow direct or in pots in Spring, after chances of frost has passed. If living in a warmer climate they can be grown in any season. Sow 5mm deep with 50cm spacing and 100cm between rows.

Description
A delicious super-hot chilli that is fruity and sweet!
Measuring in between 1000,000 to 3500,000 Scoville Heat Units, the Habanero was the world’s hottest chilli before it was taken over by the Red Savina in 1994 (super-hot varieties have since taken over).

The Habanero is commonly used in sauces. This Habanero ripens to a bright orange. Its skin is thin and waxy with some wrinkling. Their pods have a distinctive lantern-like shape.

Growing Tip: Plant in a sunny position in garden beds or in a pot 35cm or more in diameter. Prepare soil with matured organic matter or a general purpose fertiliser. If planting in pots use an Australian Standards potting mix. Liquid feed with a general purpose fertiliser regularly.

Many people think of the jalapeño as a very spicy hot pepper, but in terms of the Scoville scale, the jalapeño is merely mild to moderate. It has a Scoville heat unit range of 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville heat units (SHU).

Jalapeño is one of the most popular chilli varieties. Jalapeños were named after the city of Jalapa. Today this city in Mexico is called “Xalapa de Enríquez”. In 1982, the Jalapeno was the first chili to enter space! An astronaut took several pods as a snack to eat it in the space shuttle.

Jalapeno chili plants are easy to grow. Their chilli peppers can already be harvested green. Whether green or red, they can be used in many recipes. The crunchy pods have a pleasant spiciness. The slightly sour paprika taste is perfect for sauces, salads and stuffed chilli peppers.

It is also commonly known as the ‘ghost chilli’ or ‘ghost pepper’. Bhuts are renowned for their ‘slow burn’ – with the heat taking about 30 seconds to kick in and sticking around for as long as 30 minutes.

This makes them great for creating your own bug spray! Mix the finely sliced up chilli with some washing up detergent and water, put the whole lot in a spray bottle and there you go!

CHILLI SERRANO USUALLY RIPENS FROM GREEN TO RED BUT OFTEN YOU WILL GET THE COLOURS OF BROWN, YELLOW AND ORANGE.

Description
The serrano pepper (Capsicum annuum) is a type of chilli pepper that originated in the mountainous regions of the Mexican states of Puebla and Hidalgo. The name of the pepper is a reference to the mountains (sierras) of these regions.
The Scoville rating of the serrano pepper is 10,000 to 23,000. They are typically eaten raw and have a bright and biting flavour that is notably hotter than the jalapeño pepper. Serrano peppers are also commonly used in making pico de gallo and salsa, as the chilli is particularly fleshy compared to others, making it ideal for such dishes.
It is the second most used chilli pepper in Mexican cuisine. The Mexican states of Veracruz, Sinaloa, Nayarit, and Tamaulipas produce about 180,000 tons of serranos each year.
Mature serrano pepper plants reach a height of 0.5 to 1.5 m (1.5 to 5.0 ft) tall. Each plant can hold up to 50 pepper pods. The fruit can be harvested while they are green or ripe. Unripe serrano peppers are green, but the colour varies at maturity; common colours for the ripe fruit are green, red, brown, orange, and yellow.
Serrano peppers do better in soils with a pH between 7.0 and 8.5 in warm temperatures above 24 °C and have a low tolerance for frost.

The Skinny Green chili, scientifically known as Capsicum annuum ‘Skinny Green’, is believed to have originated in South America, particularly in regions where Capsicum annuum varieties are traditionally grown. It is characterized by its elongated shape, typically measuring around 10-15 cm in length and about 1-2 cm in width. The peppers are bright green when immature and gradually turn red as they mature, although they are often harvested and consumed in their green stage.

To grow Skinny Green chili from seed, begin by sowing seeds indoors around early spring (September to October). Use a well-draining seed-raising mix and plant the seeds about 5 mm deep. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged to facilitate germination, which usually occurs within 1-2 weeks under optimal conditions.

Once the seedlings have developed their first true leaves, they can be transplanted into larger pots or directly into a prepared garden bed. Choose a sunny location that receives at least 6-8 hours of sunlight daily. Ensure the soil is fertile, well-draining, and enriched with organic matter.

Maintain consistent moisture levels throughout the growing season by watering regularly, particularly during dry periods. Avoid water logging the soil, as it can lead to root rot.

Fertilize the plants every 4-6 weeks with a balanced organic fertilizer, following the recommended dosage on the product label. Mulching around the base of the plants can help retain moisture, suppress weeds, and maintain soil temperature.

As the Skinny Green chilies mature, they will develop their characteristic bright green color. Harvest them when they reach the desired size and color, using scissors or pruning shears to cut them from the plant to avoid damaging the stems.

BIRDSEYE CHILLI MIX IS ALL HARD HITTING FLAVOUR AND HEAT, GREAT VIVID COLOURS, GREEN, RED, PURPLE, ORANGE.

Description

Bird’s eye chilli peppers are frequently used to add spice in Southeast Asian cuisine. These small chillies grow on compact bushes in hot weather climates. Whether raw, dried, or cooked, these potent peppers pack real heat, making them ideal for spicing up dishes or creating fiery sauces.

Bird’s eye chillies are small, thin, and pointy, turning red when mature. They are green when unripe but can still be eaten, and sometimes appear orange or purple depending on their maturity. In Thai cuisine, green peppers are typically used in green curries, while the hotter, mature red peppers are used in red curries. When fresh, they often have a stem still attached and contain loose, edible seeds that are especially spicy. The peppers can be used whole, sliced, or seeded and diced.

Bird’s eye chilli peppers are extensively used in Thai, Vietnamese, Malaysian, and Indonesian cuisines. Fresh or dried chillies are added to salads, stir-fries, curries, sauces, sambals, soups, and marinades. The stems are removed, and the chillies can be left whole, sliced, diced, chopped, or pureed. The seeds are particularly spicy and can be removed for less intense heat.

It’s advisable to wear gloves when working with these chillies, especially if you wear contact lenses. Capsaicin, the chemical in the pepper that makes it hot, can remain on your fingers for several hours and can cause a painful sting if you touch your face, particularly the eye area. To prevent unnecessary discomfort, wear gloves and thoroughly clean the knife, surfaces, and any utensils the cut chillies came into contact with before handling.

Highly recommended for beginners!

QUEEN ANNE’S LACE – A MEDIEVAL MARVEL AND A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN FLOWER! SURVIVES DROUGHT WITH EASE! YOU CAN EAT THEM TOO! NOW AVAILABLE IN CHOCOLATE! ALSO KNOWN AS THE CHOCOLATE LACE FLOWER.

Early Europeans cultivated Queen Anne’s lace, while the Romans incorporated its root into their cuisine as a vegetable. With research revealing its remarkable sugar content, second only to beets among root vegetables, this plant became a sweetening agent for the Irish, Hindus, and Jews. Across various cultures, its seeds have served as aromatic flavorings in soups and culinary dishes.

Notably, Wild Carrot leaves contain porphyrins, known to stimulate the pituitary gland and elevate sex hormone levels, as well as induce uterine contractions. Herbalists historically used it to prompt delayed menstruation, making it unsuitable for pregnant individuals.

Today, both the roots and flowers find diverse applications. The roots, preferably harvested in the first year but still viable in the second, can be enjoyed raw, cooked, or roasted, with roasting being a favored method. Post-roasting, they can be ground into a powder akin to coffee. Additionally, the flowers are harvested for beverages and jellies, adding to the plant’s versatile uses.

Scientific Name: Daucus carota

Life Cycle: Annual

Characteristics: Produces lovely dark purple, pink, or white lacy umbels, ideal for floral arrangements.

Plant Height: Reaches up to 1.5 meters.

Season: Best suited for sowing in autumn and early spring.

Sowing Depth + Method: Optimal results are achieved when sown directly into the soil, covering lightly.

Tips: Prior to sowing, chilling seeds at 5-8°C for 1-2 weeks enhances germination. Seedling establishment thrives in cooler temperatures ranging from 14-17°C.

Spacing: Recommended spacing is 30cm.

Position: Flourishes in full sun.

Days until Germination: Typically germinates within 7-21 days when kept at temperatures of 16-18°C.

Seed to Bloom: Blossoms emerge approximately 14 weeks after sowing.

Sowing Timing Guide:

  • Cool Climate: March, April, and May
  • Temperate Climate: March, April, and May
  • Sub-tropical Climate: April, May, and June

ATTRACTS BEES AND BUTTERFLIES! LUSH LEAVES AND PRETTY TOO! THE NAME MELISSA OFFICINALIS COMES FROM ‘MELISSA’ WHICH IS THE GREEK WORD FOR BEE!

Description
Melissa officinalis citronella- Bursting with a relaxing, soothing scent, this is the most fragrant, flavourful variety available. A lush, bushy growth habit with flowers that attract bees and butterflies. Use in herbal teas, fruit, and fish dishes, or plant in a pot as a mosquito repellent for your outdoor sitting area. Not the same as ordinary Lemon Balm but one of the family of Lemon Balms, Citronella Balm contains citronellol and citronellal, the chemicals responsible for the citronella scent.

We love this herb! Simply crush a handful of the leaves for a burst of citronella fragrance and rub on exposed skin to deter pesky mosquitoes and gnats.

The leaves are bright green and about 2 inches long with toothed edges. Although citronella balm is a member of the mint family, it is a less aggressive spreader. To the casual glance the leaves resemble spearmint leaves, probably why it’s sometimes misidentified as lemon mint.

As with lemon balm, citronella balm is a favourite of bees. The botanical name “Melissa” is derived from the Greek word for bee.

Grow Notes
Plant in full sun to part shade in fertile, moist soil. Suitable for containers or gardens.

It is more compact and more mildew resistant than the common lemon balm.

Sow
Sow in Spring, pressing seed onto the soil surface and barely covering. Keep moist until germination.

Once seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant at a spacing of 45cm into the garden or 3 seedlings per 15cm pot.

Germination
10-14 days.

Maturity
Herbaceous Perennial.

BUSH TUCKER! CLEMATIS MICROPHYLLA IS ALSO CALLED OLD MAN’S BEARD AND YOU CAN SEE WHY! DRESSES UP EUCALYPTUS AND OTHER TRUNKS, DROUGHT AND FROST TOLERANT! PEPPERY ROOTS ARE EATEN AND LEAVES CAN ADD A PEPPER TASTE TO OTHER FOODS!

Description
Crushing the leaves and inhaling their peppery aroma has been used by native peoples as a way to relieve headaches. Steaming the leaves and placing them on arthritic and just plain achy joints can bring welcome relief quite quickly!

Can be used as a screen or ground cover in coastal locations, native parks and reserves. The Clematis is ‘dioeceious’ with slightly different flowers on the female and male plants. The flowers on the females produce seed heads with fluffy white and silvery beards which is why they are often referred to as ‘ Old-man’s Beard’. Provides nesting sites for native birds and attracts bees.

Cultural use: Indigenous peoples used the cooked roots for food, fibre for decoration and leaves as a medicine.

The flowers are greenish white and very bird attracting.
Clematis microphylla is a member of the Ranunculaceae family and is a vigorous climber. Leaves are lance-shaped in threes, dull green or greyish and each leaflet is up to three centimetres long.

The flowers are up to four centimetres across, greenish-cream and cover the climber from August to November. The flowers, of female plants, produce one-seeded, small, dry fruits that have a feathery tail. The fruits are very light and the feathery tail allows them to be dispersed by the wind.
C. microphylla is a double-barrelled plant. Both when in flower and fruiting vines are eye-catching features. C. microphylla is found throughout Australia except in the Northern Territory.

BOAT SHAPED, LIGHT BROWN SEEDS, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
A drought and frost tolerant, evergreen vine, it is a vigorous grower to 3 meters and may be used as a groundcover given the absence of something to climb on or a climber when given a structure to climb on.

Does best in well-drained soils in a sunny spot.

C. microphylla flowers from July to December. Male and female flowers develop on different plants, female plants develop fluffy, cottonwool-like fruits.

Sow
Germination of C. microphylla seeds can be sped up by removing the outer casing with a piece of sandpaper or with a knife being very careful not to cut into the pulp of the seed, or by exposing seed to a cycle of wetting and drying before planting.

Sow in Spring or Summer. Place seed beneath the soil to 5 mm, cover with layer of soil or fine gravel and keep moist in open sunny position.

Germination
56 days.

Maturity
2-3 years.

Description
Easy to grow and care for and a stunning architectural plants that can be grown as a houseplant in the home or outside as a statement in the garden! Not growing as big in Australia as it does in its natural environment, it is a small evergreen tree with several stout branches arising from a single trunk. Leaves long, sword-shaped, in dense clusters at the branch tips. Large panicles of small, fragrant cream flowers that birds adore!

From Wikepedia:
Cordyline australis, commonly known as the cabbage tree, t’k’uka or cabbage-palm,[3] is a widely branched monocot tree endemic to New Zealand.

It grows up to 20 metres (66 feet) tall [4] with a stout trunk and sword-like leaves, which are clustered at the tips of the branches and can be up to 1 metre (3 feet 3 inches) long. With its tall, straight trunk and dense, rounded heads, it is a characteristic feature of the New Zealand landscape. Its fruit is a favourite food source for the kerer and other native birds. It is common over a wide latitudinal range from the far north of the North Island to the south of the South Island. Absent from much of Fiordland, it was probably introduced by M’ori to the Chatham Islands at 44° 00S and to Stewart Island / Rakiura at 46° 50S.[5] It grows in a broad range of habitats, including forest margins, river banks and open places, and is abundant near swamps.[4] The largest known tree with a single trunk is growing at Pakawau, Golden Bay / Mohua. It is estimated to be 400 or 500 years old and stands 17 metres (56 feet) tall with a circumference of 9 metres (30 feet) at the base.[6]

Known to Mori as t? kuka,[7] the tree was used as a source of food, particularly in the South Island, where it was cultivated in areas where other crops would not grow. It provided durable fibre for textiles, anchor ropes, fishing lines, baskets, waterproof rain capes and cloaks, and sandals. Hardy and fast growing, it is widely planted in New Zealand gardens, parks and streets, and numerous cultivars are available. The tree can also be found in large numbers in island restoration projects such as Tiritiri Matangi Island,[8] where it was among the first seedling trees to be planted.[9]

It is also grown as an ornamental tree in higher latitude Northern Hemisphere countries with maritime climates, including parts of the upper West Coast of the United States, Canada and the British Isles, where its common names include Torbay palm[10][11] and Torquay palm.[12] It does not do well in hot tropical climates like the Caribbean, Queensland, Southeast Asia or Florida.

Seed counts are approximate.

Grow Notes
Cold tolerant and drought tolerant. Suited for use as an indoor potted plant, garden specimen, or used in landscaping.

Plant in a sunny position in light to medium soil.

Sow
Sow seed 3mm seep in Spring or Autumn, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year.
Gently water to avoid seed disturbance and place in a warm, shaded or semi-shaded position to avoid dying out. Keep soil moist, not wet and warm.

Germination
21-28 days if conditions are right, but they may take up to 90 days or longer depending on the conditions so don’t discard seed.

Maturity
Perennial, evergreen.

LOVE IT OR HATE IT, YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THAT IT HAS SO MANY USES AND IS A VERY VALUABLE HERBS!

Description
CORIANDER Eureka has a strong aroma and is best suited for fresh leaves, a tall standing type plant which is slow in bolting.

The entire plant is edible and delicious. Most vegetables gain advantage from having these Herbs planted nearby.

COLLECT SEEDS AND NEVER BUY AGAIN!

Grow Notes
Coriander grows best where the climate is hot and humid. In most parts of Western Australia, we can provide the heat that coriander loves but not the humidity so growing from Autumn to Spring is usually the most successful. Plant in part or full sun, in moist well-draining soil.

Coriander has a terrible habit of bolting to seed whenever the conditions that it is in changes. If the weather turns from hot to cold or cold to hot, it will decide that it is time to produce more seed and will send up flower heads from the centre of the plant.

There are several ways to grow strong and healthy Coriander without it bolting to seed. The main one is to choose a slow bolting variety! A tall standing type plant, which is slow in bolting, Coriander Eureka can be grown during the warmer times of the year when kept out of direct afternoon sun, then it will take off once the weather cools down. The second way is to sow it directly where it needs to grow as seed instead of transplanting the seedlings resulting in a stronger plant and root system.

By seeding a new planting of coriander every two or three weeks, a continuous supply of coriander can be achieved fresh from the garden since, when one plant is finishing being harvested, the next will be ready.

Sow
Sow direct in Autumn or Spring at a depth of 6mm, spacing plants 20cm apart.

Keep soil moist but never wet.

Germination
7-10 days at 18-22°C

SLOW-BOLT CORIANDER CURES THAT BOLTING PROBLEM SOME HAVE! IN HOT AREAS CORIANDER CAN RUSH TO SEED BUT NOT THIS ONE! AND RIGHT THROUGH TO SPRING – OFFERS A DELICIOUS FLAVOUR AND EASY GROWING!

Description
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) has a pungent, citrus flavour to the leaves that some people adore and others detest. In fact, its name is derived from the Greek word for bug as they thought that it smelt like one that had been squashed! (I added that for the coriander haters! I think it smells gorgeous!)

All parts of coriander can be used. The leaves are used in Chinese, Thai and Mexican dishes to give a spicy flavour and the chopped root can be included in dishes that require more cooking. Coriander seed is also powdered and used in both sweet and savoury dishes.

There are several varieties of coriander. Slow bolt coriander will grow to about 60 centimetres tall.

The first step to direct sowing coriander is to choose a pot that is about 25 centimetres across. Fill it to about three centimetres from the top with a premium potting mix that contains slow release fertiliser and wetting agents.

Coriander is extremely fast growing and should be harvested often by taking the outside leaves from the base of the plant. The best flavour comes from the younger leaves, so it is best to accept that it is a short-lived plant.

Growing coriander is well worth the effort if just to add a touch of the exotic to both the garden and the dining table!

LARGE SEEDS, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Coriander grows best where the climate is hot and humid. In most parts of Western Australia, we can provide the heat that coriander loves but not the humidity so growing from Autumn to Spring is usually the most successful. Plant in part or full sun, in moist well-draining soil.

There are several ways to grow strong and healthy Coriander without it bolting to seed. The main one is to choose a slow bolting variety! Slow bolt Coriander will be more uniform and slower to produce flower heads so will be produce leaves for longer. The second way is to sow it directly where it needs to grow as seed instead of transplanting the seedlings.

Description
Glass Gem corn, a unique variety of rainbow-coloured corn, became an internet sensation in 2012 when a photo of the sparkling cob was posted to Facebook. The story behind Glass Gem Corn is just as remarkable. It begins with one man, Carl Barnes, who set out to explore his Native American roots.

Barnes, who died in 2016, was half-Cherokee. He began growing older corn varieties in his adult years (no one is exactly sure when this began) as a way to reconnect with his heritage.

In growing these older corn varieties, Barnes was able to isolate ancestral types that had been lost to Native American tribes when they were relocated to what is now Oklahoma in the 1800s. This led to an exchange of ancient corn seed with people he had met and made friends with all over the country.

At the same time, Barnes began selecting, saving, and replanting seeds from particularly colourful cobs. Over time, this resulted in rainbow-coloured corn.

A fellow farmer, Greg Schoen, met Barnes in 1994 at a native-plant gathering in Oklahoma. Barnes had his rainbow-coloured corn on display. Schoen was blown away. That following year, Barnes gave Schoen some of the rainbow seed. Schoen planted the first seeds that summer.

When the rainbow corn mixed with the traditional varieties it created new strains. Each year of successive planting, the corn displayed more vibrant colours and vivid patterns.

According to an account from Schoen, Barnes told him that the rainbow seed originally came from a crossing of Pawnee miniature popcorns with an Osage red flour corn and also another Osage corn called Greyhorse.

Glass corn can be seen through in some respects but is more like a pearl in its design. So has a shimmery outer. Glass or Rainbow Corn has now been grown in so many different colours from red, lilac, purple, blue etc. you will never know what you get until it grows, the cobs of corn can be anything from a single colour to one with hundreds of different colours all in the one cob.

The flavour of glass corn is not the same as sweetcorn as it has in developed from the Indian maize corn it has a more floury flavour. This lends itself to using for grinding but also for soups, stews, and any kind of cooking that needs a longer time in the pan. It is nice straight off the plant when it’s young too, it takes a few weeks longer than sweetcorn to finish.

Grow Notes
Corn prefers full sun, with moist, well-draining soil. Corn grows rapidly and is a heavy feeder so be sure to add lots of compost and well-rotted manure to the soil prior to sowing.

If planting more than 1 variety of corn, take steps to make sure they do not cross pollinate.

Corn cobs need to remain on the plant until the husks are completely dry to allow the corn to develop the coloured kernels. Once harvested remove the husks and air-dry cobs for 7-14 days prior to being popped or ground.

Sow
In Spring and early Summer, sow direct at 20mm depth and 15cm spacing in blocks of at least three rows with 20cm spacing (rather than a single long row) for good pollination.

Keep soil moist but never wet.

Germination
5-14 days at 16-35°C

Maturity
100 days.

THIS HALLOWEEN MIX CONTAINS EDIBLE FLOWERS! RED AND BLACK CORNFLOWERS! SUCH A SPOOKY COLOUR COMBINATION! THEY ARE A MAGNET FOR BEES, BUTTERFLIES, BIRDS AND LOADS OF BENEFICIAL INSECTS! IT NEEDS NO SPECIAL SOILS, DRY, SANDY AND DEVOID OF FERTILISER? WELL, THESE WILL LOVE THAT! IN FACT DON’T GIVE THEM TOO MUCH GOODNESS AS YOU WILL GET LEAVES BUT HARDLY ANY FLOWERS!

Best with at least half a day of full sun, these thrive in dry areas! Well-drained soil is best. Cornflowers do best in soil with low fertility so there’s no need to add fertiliser or organic matter. They are an edible bloom that has a slightly sweet to spicy flavour. Cornflowers are often used as a garnish; although, the flower can also be used as a natural food dye.

Grow Notes
For best results, grow in full sun in well-drained soil. Avoid planting in extremely hot or cold weather which can affect germination and growth.

Sow

Sow seeds directly in the garden 5mm deep and 20-35cm apart. Keep soil moist but never wet or dry. Seeds should germinate in around 7-14 days at a soil temperature of 15-18°C.

MAGNIFICENT “COME AGAIN” FLOWERS! THE MORE YOU PICK THE MORE FLOWERS COME TO REPLACE THEM! COSMOS SENSATION PICOTEE FLOWERS ARE LACED WITH DEEP PINK, PINKS, PURPLES, AND LOADS OF MIXED COLOURS! LOVES POOR SANDY SOILS! NO CARE NEEDED!

Description
Cosmos ‘Sensation Picotee” is a superb easy to grow annual and one of the earliest blooming cosmos mixtures. The tall, graceful plants have delicate ferny foliage and throw up blooms from spring through summer and right through to the end of autumn. The large, single flowers ranging from white to carmine red all with picotee edged flowers in the mixture, each with a yellow centre, they make fabulous cut flowers, and are perfect for bouquets.
Disease free and its tolerance of poor soil, heat and humidity, make it an excellent choice if you are looking for an easy to grow “no fuss” annual that will thrive on minimal care. Deserving a sunny site in any garden, these adaptable plants are absolutely great for cutting, pots and borders. Water, sun and soil are all that is needed.

Cosmos is one of the best nectar plants for attracting butterflies to the garden, the seed heads attract birds and the flowers are perfect for pressing. Very easy to grow, making it a perfect choice for children or the less experienced gardener. Excellent in beds and borders as well as the cutting garden. They are also perfect for container plantings where their toughness and showiness can keep the flower show going all through the long growing season.

The large plants make a bold, beautiful statement in any flower garden!
At the season’s end, don’t be too quick to pull up withering cosmos plants. Birds (particularly gold finches) love to snack on their seed heads in autumn, and the seeds that they miss may drop to the ground and reward you the next year by sprouting into a whole new crop.

Cut Flowers: Cosmos is a cut-and-come-again bloomer, meaning that the sooner you cut the blooms, the quicker new buds will pop up to replace them. The blooms appear so profusely that you’ll still have plenty of colour in the garden after you’ve picked your flowers. If you sear the stem end in boiling water for twenty seconds they will last a week in water.

Grow Notes
Cosmos prefers full sun, with moist, well-draining soil.

A SOFT GIANT CABBAGE WITH THE MOST SUCCULENT TASTE NO MATTER HOW BIG IT GROWS! PORTUGUESE COUVE TRONCHUDA IS AN HEIRLOOM THAT YOU MAY NEVER HAVE SEEN BEFORE!

Description
This is one confusing leafy green vegetable, it defies categorization. Is it a kale, or is it a cabbage, or is it something in between? My nose tells me it is cabbage because when I cut into a fresh leaf it has a distinct aroma of fresh sweet cabbage and the flavour is more akin to cabbage than to kale. The texture is softer than cabbage.

There is one thing about Couve Tronchuda that is undisputed, it is the key ingredient for Caldo Verde, a Portuguese soup – practically the national dish of Portugal.

Caldo Verde is a deceptively simple soup featuring Couve Tronchuda, potatoes, onion, garlic, Portuguese linguiça or chouriço, olive oil, and water. This vegetable was worth the search!

As you leave them to grow, the fatter and juicier the leaf stalks become. The leaves and stalks become larger and larger as the plant matures. I think some of the largest ones on the plants got to be at least 18 inches across.
One of the marvellous things about those leaf stalks is that they remain tender for a long time – they are sweet and juicy, delicious eaten raw or cooked.

Grow Notes
Large loose-leaf plant grown for its fleshy cabbage style leaves best grown in full sun or part shade in well-drained soil. Cut heads before they flower to encourage more leaves.

Protect your cabbage leaves from the caterpillar of the cabbage moth by tying old bits of white cloth in a bow shape to pieces of stick or wire, add them all over your cabbage patch and other white moths won’t land as they see their babies will not have enough to eat as many other moths have got there before them – it works!!!

Sow
Sow direct or raise seedlings to transplant into the garden once established. Plant in Spring, Summer and Autumn at 8mm depth, 80cm apart with 100cm between rows.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Germination
3-7 days at 8-30°C

Maturity
80- 90 days.

SOLANUM MAMMOSUM IS AN ORNIMENTAL PLANT THAT IS ALSO CALLED THE NIPPLE FRUIT OR COW’S UDDER PLANT IS SIMPLY SPOOKTACULAR! USED TO POISON AND REPEL COCKROACHES IN TROPICAL AMERICA, IT HAS CRAZILY SHAPED FRUITS AND AN ATTRACTIVE LOOK. BRANCHES WITH THE BRIGHT FRUIT ATTACHED ARE OFTEN USED IN FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS.

Originating in the Caribbean and widespread across the West Indian islands, S. mammosum, commonly known as the Nipple Fruit, has become a popular ornamental plant across tropical America. Recognizable by its distinct protuberances, the fruits of Solanum Mammosum rank among the largest within the Solanum genus.

While some specimens feature spines, others do not. Documented extensively, its utilization as a cockroach poison has contributed to its proliferation among tribes throughout tropical America, as noted by Nee (1979).

Although sparsely found in Africa, particularly failing to naturalize in Ghana where the fruits are deemed poisonous (Bukenya & Hall, Bothalia 18: 83, 1988), Mansfeld (2001) highlights its potential as a source of solasodine for medicinal purposes and glycoalkaloids for schistosomiasis control.

Distribution:

  • Native to the West Indies, it is also cultivated in various regions including the US, India, Hong Kong, and Australia.
  • Its cultivation extends to Panama, Guyana, Surinam, French Guiana, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, and Peru.
  • Additionally, it is cultivated as an ornamental and found in Ghana, Burundi, Angola, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and South Africa.

The stems and fruits of this plant hold great appeal to florists for their unique appearance, making them a captivating addition to floral arrangements that can endure for weeks in a vase. They are often made into small animals using googly eyes and decorated in baskets and in built into huge decorative towers in their native lands.

 

Grow Notes
Place in a location that receives full sun. Give them a feed with Osmocote or Dynamic Lifter (Chicken manure pellets) twice a year and water regularly as they have a high-water requirement and will wilt easily, so don’t let them dry out totally.

Sow
Sow your seeds on a well-drained medium such as 75% sand and 25% Peat moss, or a potting mix with 50% coarse sand added to it. Just cover the seed with a sieved layer of sand or potting mix.

Keep them in a very bright, filtered light location and maintain consistent moisture levels, not sopping wet, just nice and moist.

When the seedlings reach 2-3 cm high, carefully transplant them to 5 cm pots using a well-draining potting medium. Add a pinch only of Osmocote or similar to each pot and water well. Keep your plants in very bright filtered light and do not let them dry out.

Germination
It may take up to a month for all the seed to germinate, don’t throw them out!

Maturity
Give your plant a good hard prune yearly to thicken it up, the more branches the more fruit so don’t be afraid to nip the tips of the branches off now and then.
