You will get 10 root propagation balls. These are reusable, rinse them in a bucket with bleach and water before using again.We love these, and I think you will too! The clear plastic allows you to see what’s going on.

Root propagation balls, also known as root propagation plugs or root trainers, are a useful tool for propagating plants from cuttings or right on the plant itself – called air layering. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use them effectively:

  1. Prepare your materials: Gather all the necessary materials including the root propagation balls, soil, a clean knife or scissors for cutting,  a rooting hormone (if desired), and your chosen plant.
  2. Choose your plant material:  Select healthy stems from the parent plant, making sure they’re free from disease or pests. For air layering from plants choose healthy stems you don’t mind losing afterwards once they are cut off.
  3. Cut your stem: cut a small section from the bark making sure not to cut too deeply. Look at the pictures to see how.
  4. Apply rooting hormone (optional): Spread some around your cut for air layering if you like.
  5. Attach the balls.: Fill your root propagation balls with damp, well draining soil. Open the ball and clasp it around the plant over your cut. The gently press the ball closed and attach the ball together using zip ties or even twist ties or twine. Secure it in place.
  6. Provide appropriate care: Place the root propagation balls in a warm, bright location, but avoid direct sunlight as it can cause overheating. Keep the balls consistently moist, but not waterlogged, by misting them regularly or watering from below.
  7. Monitor progress: Check the root propagation balls regularly for signs of growth. For cuttings, you should start to see new roots emerging within a few weeks.
  8. Transplant: Once roots have developed sufficiently for cuttings or seedlings have grown several sets of true leaves, cut the new plant off, they can be transplanted into individual pots or directly into the garden.
  9. Provide ongoing care: Continue to care for your propagated plants as they grow, providing appropriate water, light, and nutrients according to their specific needs.

By following these steps, you can effectively use root propagation balls to propagate plants from your existing plants.

THESE ARE GROWN WITH NO PESTICIDES AT A LOCAL HOBBY FARM THAT SUPPLIES US AS WE NEED THEM SO THEY ARE ALWAYS FRESH! THERE MAY BE A SLIGHT DELAY ON POSTAGE AS I HAVE TO PICK UP YOUR RHIZOMES FRESH.

YOU WILL GET ONE MEDIUM/LARGE RHIZOME.

Ginger is a member of a plant family that includes cardamom and turmeric. Its spicy aroma is mainly due to presence of ketones, especially the gingerols, which appear to be the primary component of ginger studied in much of the health-related scientific research. The rhizome, which is the horizontal stem from which the roots grow, is the main portion of ginger that is consumed. Ginger’s current name comes from the Middle English gingivere, but this spice dates back over 3000 years to the Sanskrit word srngaveram, meaning “horn root,” based on its appearance. In Greek, it was called ziggiberis, and in Latin, zinziberi. Interestingly, ginger does not grow in the wild and its actual origins are uncertain.

Indians and Chinese are believed to have produced ginger as a tonic root for over 5000 years to treat many ailments, and this plant is now cultivated throughout the humid tropics, with India being the largest producer. Ginger was used as a flavoring agent long before history was formally recorded. It was an exceedingly important article of trade and was exported from India to the Roman Empire over 2000 years ago, where it was especially valued for its medicinal properties. Ginger continued to be a highly sought after commodity in Europe even after the fall of the Roman Empire, with Arab merchants controlling the trade in ginger and other spices for centuries. In the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the value of a pound of ginger was equivalent to the cost of a sheep. By medieval times, it was being imported in preserved form to be used in sweets. Queen Elizabeth I of England is credited with the invention of the gingerbread man, which became a popular Christmas treat.

Ginger is used in numerous forms, including fresh, dried, pickled, preserved, crystallized, candied, and powdered or ground. The flavor is somewhat peppery and slightly sweet, with a strong and spicy aroma. The concentration of essential oils increases as ginger ages and, therefore, the intended use of the rhizome determines the time when it is harvested. If extracting the oil is the main purpose, then ginger can be harvested at 9 months or longer. Ginger is commonly pickled in sweet vinegar, which turns it a pink colour; this form is popular with sushi.

Ginger harvested at 8-9 months has a tough skin that must be removed before eating, and the root is more pungent and is used dried or pulverized into ground ginger. This is the form most commonly found in our spice racks and used in cookies, cakes, and curry mixes. Candied or crystallized ginger is cooked in sugar syrup and coated with granulated sugar. Ginger harvested at 5 months is not yet mature and has a very thin skin, and the rhizomes are tender with a mild flavour and are best used in fresh or preserved forms.

Grow Notes
Make sure you remove them from any plastic wrapping and plant immediately.

Plant in part or full sun with moist, well-drained soil.

Frost Tender Perennial.

Sow direct in Spring and Summer at 3cm deep into damp soil with 30cm between plants.

AMAZING! EASY TO GROW! AMARANTHUS CHANGES COLOUR AND LASTS FOR MONTHS AS A BRIGHT AND HAPPY PLANT IN YOUR GARDEN! BRIGHT PINK, RED AND CHOCOLATE! VERY TROPICAL LOOKING AND A SUN LOVER TOO!

Amaranthus tricolour is grown for its beautiful foliage, the large bronzy-green leaves turn into a rosy-red as the season progresses. It gives colour up to two weeks earlier than other Amaranths/ Incorporating a few bright foliage plants into the garden means that you won’t be disappointed with borders after spring blooms have faded.

Also known as ‘Summer Poinsettia’ due to the similarity of the bracts, this highly ornamental plant is easy and fast growing. It adds an explosion of colour to the garden and is utterly breathtaking in mass plantings and very useful as a temporary shrub. Ideal for the border but also thrives in containers on a sunny patio. Very ornamental variety of amaranth that is grown for its colourful leaves.

Bring birds to your garden while giving you stunning colours and foliage! A hardy lover of full sun and you can eat the seeds or leave them to the birds!

Cut flowers and hang to dry for use in flower arrangements; cut seed heads to feed the birds in winter.

Called laal shaak or red spinach, it is eaten for its nutrient value, tastiness and ease of cooking. It makes a fast, easy dish, very tasty with rice.

Grow Notes
Growing to 50cm, plant in free draining rich, moist soil in sun for the best flowers. Preparing garden beds with well composted manure will give the best results.

Amaranthus seeds can be either sown in pots or directly where they are to flower. They are susceptible to frost so be sure to sow only after the last chance of frost has past and the soil has warmed a little.

Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. For an extra-long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser.

Sow
Small seeds, sow at a depth of 3mm or mix with fine grains of sand if needed to aid distribution of seeds. Can be sown direct or raised as seedlings.

Plant in Spring and early Summer at 30cm spacing.
Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells.

Germination
7-10 days @ 20-25°C

Maturity
105 days to Maturity.

Ash gourd, also known as Benincasa hispida, winter melon, wax gourd, white pumpkin, and Chinese watermelon, is a fruit native to parts of Southern Asia.

It grows on a vine and matures into a round or oblong melon, approximately the same size and color as a watermelon. Once ripe, the fruit’s fuzzy exterior transforms into a powdery ash-colored coating, giving the fruit its name.

Ash gourd has a mild taste reminiscent of cucumber, and its flesh is a popular ingredient in Chinese and Indian dishes.

The fruit is believed to offer various health benefits and has been used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for centuries.

  • Seed Preparation:
    • Soak the ash gourd seeds in room temperature water for 24 hours to soften the seed coat and enhance germination.
  • Sowing Seeds:
    • Fill seed trays or pots with a mix of potting soil and compost.
    • Plant the seeds about 2.5 cm deep in the soil.
    • Cover the seeds lightly with soil and gently water them using a spray bottle to avoid disturbing the seeds.
  • Germination:
    • Place the seed trays or pots in a warm, sunny location. Ash gourd seeds need a temperature of around 25-30°C for germination.
    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
    • Seeds should germinate within 7-14 days.
  • Transplanting Seedlings:
    • Once the seedlings have 2-3 true leaves and the weather is warm (preferably above 20°C), they can be transplanted to the garden or larger containers.
    • Choose a sunny spot with well-draining soil enriched with compost or organic matter.
    • Space the seedlings about 90-120 cm apart to give them plenty of room to grow.
  • Care and Maintenance:
    • Water the plants regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but avoid overwatering.
    • Mulch around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
    • Provide support for the vines to climb, such as a trellis or fence, as ash gourd plants can grow vigorously.
    • Fertilize the plants every 2-3 weeks with a balanced organic fertilizer to promote healthy growth.
  • Pest and Disease Management:
    • Keep an eye out for common pests like aphids, beetles, and caterpillars. Use organic insecticides or neem oil if needed.
    • Ensure good air circulation around the plants to prevent fungal diseases. Remove any infected leaves immediately.
  • Harvesting:
    • Ash gourds are usually ready for harvest 3-4 months after planting, when the fruits are large and the skin has developed a powdery coating.
    • Cut the fruit from the vine using a sharp knife, leaving a small portion of the stem attached.

GIANT ASPARAGUS ARGENTEUIL – AGES OLD HEIRLOOM WITH RICH PINK/PURPLE TIPS! THIS CAN BE PICKED IN TWO YEARS SAVING A WHOLE YEAR ON ALL OTHER VARIETIES!

Description
Asparagus officinalis is a French heirloom with thick rose-purple stems and purple tips. This ancient perennial vegetable produces early in spring and has an excellent flavour. In France it is blanched to produce white spears called “white gold”.

Grow Notes
Likes light friable soils and a pH around 7.0 in a sunny or partially shaded spot. Prepare with compost and well-rotted manure, mulch heavily in summer.

Male plants produce thicker and better spears than the female plants, so the females can be removed (female plants produce red poisonous berries) if not growing for seed. Plants die back every winter and re-sprout every spring.

Sow
Sow after frost at 1-2cms deep and 30cms apart. Space rows at 90-120cms apart.

Germination
14-21 days at 23-27°C.

Maturity
Seed forms good strong crowns after 2 years. Don’t pick spears until this time as the plant needs to establish a strong root structure. Once established can last 20 years.

FRENCH SPINACH IS PACKED WITH VITAMINS AND IS A VERY RARE AND UNUSUAL VEGETABLE WITH A STUNNING COLOUR THAT WOULD ADORN THE FLOWER GARDEN AND THE VEGGIE PATCH!

An indigenous plant from Southern Europe, it’s also known as Mountain or French Spinach, this is Atriplex hortensis Red Plume. The preparation and use of the young, shiny leaves are the same as that of, for example, spinach, apart from the much longer harvesting time. Great for stir-fry or as an addition to salads! The seeds are also edible and are best used ground and mixed with flour or added to breads or cereals.

Harvest the whole plant when 30cm high or harvest leaves as required. The leaves can be plucked the entire year, if they have not shrivelled or showing lost colour. The flavour is finer than that of spinach or Sorrel and contains many minerals. Cut at approx. 20 cm from the ground. Easy to cultivate and heat tolerant.

Ornamental wine-red seed pods make a great filler for cut flowers displays!

Grow Notes
Heat tolerant and slow to bolt during warm periods, they do best in full or part sun in moist, well drained soils. However, they are tolerant of poor soil conditions, growing to 160cm.

Self-seeding plants drop seeds onto the soil at the end of the season that may germinate and grow without help the following season.

Sow
Sow direct at a depth of 2mm in Spring after frosts have passed. Space plants at 30cm and rows at 30cm.

Germination
7-14 days at 20-22°C

Maturity
75-110 days

ADZUKI BEANS ARE PERFECT FOR THOUSANDS OF RECIPES AND CAN BE EATEN WHEN GREEN LIKE SNAP PEAS OR LEFT TO DRY FOR CHILLI CON CARNE, RISOTTO AND SALADS. EASY TO GROW AND PROLIFIC!

Description
The Adzuki bean (Phaseolus angularis or Vigna angularis) is a Japanese favourite that can be grown for use as a dried bean, enjoyed fresh in its green pod, or even as a crunchy, nutritious sprout.

The plant itself looks similar to a field pea or cowpea and grows 1 to 2 feet tall, producing yellow flowers followed by clusters of cylinder-shaped pods that hold the red to orange beans. As an annual vegetable, Adzuki can be grown in any climate zone that has enough frost-free days for the plant to produce edible pods, about two weeks after flowers appear. A longer season — 90 to 120 days — is required to harvest the beans for dry use. Can be used as a great green manure crop since Adzuki, like most legumes, can fix nitrogen in the soil, making it available as fertilizer for later crops.

Grow Notes
Adzuki beans grow best in full sun in a site that has good drainage.

Keep the soil consistently moist, but not soggy while waiting for seeds to emerge and throughout the growing season. Adzuki can develop rot if they are waterlogged. Weed by hand seven to 10 days after planting, when the seedlings are leafed out, and a third time in two to three weeks.

This gives the beans an adequate head start, allowing them to shade out many weeds as the plant matures. Fertilize the plants with a low-nitrogen fertilizer when they are 4 to 5 inches tall and again when the plants bloom. Beans are relatively insect resistant, even those that plague other beans.

Sow
Plant adzuki bean seeds directly in the garden when your Spring or Summer soil temperature is at least 15.5C, for the most reliable germination. A soil thermometer can make a big difference in the planting of adzuki beans and other vegetables, particularly beans, which have seeds prone to rot when they stay too long in cold, wet soil.

Sow adzuki seeds 4cm deep 10 to 15cm apart. When planting multiple rows, space rows at least 45cm apart.

Germination
At 10°C Adzuki beans can take up to 20 days to germinate, while above 15.5°C, plants can emerge in 10 to 14 days. The temperature should be consistent for several days before planting.

Maturity
To eat adzuki beans fresh, as you would a snap bean, harvest the green pods when the seeds are just barely visible beneath the surface of the pods. Fresh beans should be ready to pick every four to five days. Let pods develop and dry on the vine until they rattle in the pod — from 90 to 120 days — to use them as shelling beans.

Cut down the entire plant at the end of the season and allow it to dry in a well-ventilated area for at least a week. The dried pods break open easily to reveal seven to 10 dried beans each. Store shelled beans in an airtight container in a cool, dry location until ready to use.

BLACK BEANS ARE ONE OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATIONS MOST VALUED FOODS! THEY CAN LOWER YOUR GLYCEMIC INDEX! THEY ARE REALLY YUMMY AND AMAZINGLY EASY TO GROW!

Description
Black beans are native to North, South, and Central America. Their origins have been traced to many locations in Mexico, as well as Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Today, black beans are cultivated and enjoyed worldwide in many different types of cuisines.

Among all groups of food commonly eaten worldwide, no group has a more health-supportive mix of protein-plus-fibre than legumes. A single one-cup serving of this legume will provide you with 60% of our WHFoods recommended fibre intake and 30% of our WHFoods recommended protein intake. Legumes are the only food group that can provide you with such a strong fibre-protein combination.

A single, one-cup serving of black beans gives nearly 15 grams of fibre and over 15 grams of protein. It’s low glycemic index rating comes from the resistant starch content of black beans. On the protein front, recent studies show black beans to contain unique peptide components (small sequences of amino acids that are used to form proteins) that further improve regulation of blood sugar and insulin levels.

These seeds are 100% organic with no pesticides, treatments or artificial fertilizers used in their production. They are farmed locally. Usually, these peas might be sprayed with something to get rid of pests and heat treated before sale to the public, that will often kill the living part of the seed, so you need to get untreated seed to grow these.

Grow Notes
Once established Black beans don’t need as much water. Only water them when the soil is dry, or they appear wilted. Black beans are incredibly easy to take care of, they are kind of no-nonsense plants. Plant them direct, water them occasionally, give them sunshine and they’ll grow without any additional help. You can grow these in the ground or in containers – both are great!

Sow
Black bean seeds germinate more easily if you prep them by soaking them for a few hours or overnight. Soak your beans in clean water for at least 2 hours before planting. Plant with eyes facing downwards, 2.5cm deep, in a sunny spot once the soil temp reaches 15°C in Spring. Space 10-15cms apart and keep soil moist as they begin to sprout and while young.

Germination
Your beans should germinate in 10-14 days.

Maturity
They will reach maturity in about 100 days.

GREAT FIBRE CONTENT TO MAKE YOU FEEL FULLER! 12 LARGE SEEDS, STRIPED, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE. EACH BEAN SEED PRODUCES A FEW KILOS OF BEANS AND MAYBE MORE!

Description
Borlotti beans, also known as cranberry beans, are a medium-sized bean with unsurpassed versatility. Borlotti beans have a mild nutty flavour, a natural savoury aroma and a creamy texture when cooked. These red striped beans are delectable in savoury dishes. They pair with subtle Indian flavours or hotter spices equally well and are great in vegetarian recipes.

Borlotti beans should be pre-soak in plenty of cold water (in a large bowl with room for beans to double in size) for a minimum of 4 hours before cooking. This removes the naturally occurring Lectin and Saponin found in many pulses, which can impede digestion. Drain, rinse well and place beans in a pot of cold water, 1:2. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes or until tender. Do not add salt while cooking, as this can make outer skins of legumes tough. Drain and use or refrigerate for up to 2 days.

Yummy cooked Borlotti beans can be chilled and added to salads or used hot in hearty soups and hotpots. They are particularly good in curries and spiced dishes; try cumin and coriander seeds with freshly grated turmeric and ginger or add chilli for extra zing. Red Borlotti beans are also wonderful refried in Mexican burritos and enchiladas.

Left-over spicy beans are a scrumptious topper for baked potatoes with grated cheese or sour cream. These beans are a delicious ingredient for vegetarian burgers, while smashed Borlotti beans are great in dips; mix with spicy salsa and serve with avocado and crackers.

These are easy and fun to grow! Kids love their bright pods and striped beans!

Grow Notes
These are climbing beans so the vines will need a medium to climb over; trellis, A-frame or fence are all popular solutions.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best eaten when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.

Sow
Sow direct at 20mm depth spaced 15cms apart in Spring and Summer. Rows should be spaced 100cm apart and be in full sun, with well-drained soil.

THESE CAN BE STORED FOR UP TO THREE YEARS IN THE PODS IN YOUR PANTRY! THERE IS NOTHING ELSE LIKE IT – TOTALLY SUCCULENT! EAT THEM FRESH OR DRIED

Description
Fava broad bean plants (Vicia faba) are among the oldest known cultivated plants, dating back into prehistoric times. A traditional staple food, fava plants are indigenous to the Mediterranean and Southwest Asia.

Today, growing fava beans can be found in Central America, North America and up into Canada, which is actually the largest producer of fava beans due to its cool temperatures. Popular among many cuisines, the fava bean may be boiled, baked, saut?ed, mashed, fried, braised, stewed and pureed.

Simple dishes of boiled beans with salt and butter or more complicated ones like the traditional Egyptian breakfast of ful medames, a dish of favas, lemon juice, onion, garlic, olive oil, and parsley are prepared on a daily basis in many countries. The young fava bean has not yet formed the endocarp or skin which surrounds the mature shelled bean. As such, the succulent immature fava needs no peeling.

Fava bean plants are actually a relative of vetch, which unlike other bean types has no climbing tendrils. Fava bean plants are upright bushy plants attaining a height of between 2-7 feet tall with large, fragrant white to purplish blooms. The fava bean itself looks similar to a lima bean and is up to 18 inches long. The seed pods of the fava bean plant have a shelf life of three years when stored in optimal conditions.

Once you have harvested the growing fava beans, the remaining foliage may be used as an addition to the compost or makes an excellent cover crop. The bushy greens aid in erosion prevention and protect the topsoil from rain impaction and wind.

Fava beans, like all legume plants, have nitrogen-rich nodules on their roots and contribute to replenishing nitrogen to the soil. Also, the aromatic flower of the growing fava bean plants are powerful pollinator attractors. All in all, growing fava beans is an all around beneficial and valuable crop choice.

In Italy, Iran and areas of China, fava bean planting is done to provide food, while in North America it is primarily cultivated as a seed crop, livestock and poultry feed, cover crop or green manure. It may also be roasted and ground and then added to coffee to extend it.

The dry fava bean is 24 percent protein, 2 percent fat, and 50 percent carbohydrate with 700 calories per cup. In New Orleans where the fava bean arrived from Sicily in the late 1800?s, the older denizens still carry the ?lucky bean? in a pocket or purse while school kids paint them green, red and white as a symbol of St. Joseph?s answer of aid during a famine.

In many areas where Sicilians settled, you will find altars to St. Joseph for sending rain and the subsequent bumper crop of fava beans.

Fava bean planting should be sown 1-2 inches deep and spaced about 6-8 inches apart. Average irrigation is recommended for growing fava beans, and fava bean plants are hardy to about 6 C.

Mature beans can either be peeled while raw, which is tedious, the beans after briefly steaming in a bowl of iced water. Once the latter is done, the skins will rub off easily.

LARGE SEEDS, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE. EACH PLANT PROVIDES KILOS OF BEANS OVER A LONG TIME PERIOD.

EAT FRESH – KEEP IN THE FRIDGE, EAT DRIED – KEEP BEANS IN THE PODS IN A PAPER BAG OR NET BAG IN YOUR PANTRY OR ANY DRY, DARK AND COOL PLACE., USE THEM AS YOU NEED THEM!

Description
Great Northern Beans are white medium sized beans a bit larger than a navy bean most commonly used for making baked beans and “pork and beans”. Use this bean in any recipe calling for white beans.

Great Northern beans are normally available heat sterilized and dried or cooked with sauce and canned and very less commonly, fresh. The fresh beans are delightful in all sorts of recipes such as soups, stews, salads, stir fries and such.
Our beans have been grown and dried, that’s it. They have not been heat sterilized and will grown an abundance of fresh and healthy beans! They are a bush bean so no trellis is needed although they will benefit from being near a fence or wall or as shown in the pictures, some corn grown in the middle!

From Wikipedia:

The rattlesnake bean is an heirloom cultivar of pole bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). The pods are 6 to 8-inches long with purple markings, and the seeds are light brown with brown markings, still visible after cooking. They are named for the snake-like manner in which their pods coil around the vine.[1]

Rattlesnake beans favour hot weather such as in American Southeast and mid-Atlantic, though they are easy to grow elsewhere as well. They have an average to long time from germination to harvest, ranging from 60 to 90 days.[2] They should be harvested frequently for increased yields. Plant grows up to ten feet, producing purple flowers before the pods.[3][4]

As fresh snap beans, they are sweet-tasting.[2] Cooked dry beans have an intense flavour that combines well with strong spices, making them suitable for chili con carne.[5]

Grow Notes
Plant in late Spring or early Summer. Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

RED KIDNEY BEAN ‘PROLIFIC’ IS A HUGE SUPPLIER OF BEAUTIFUL NUTRITIOUS KIDNEY BEANS AND GROWING YOUR OWN IS SO EASY! GREAT FOR CHILLI, STEWS, SOUPS AND MORE!

Description
Kidney beans, like most bean varieties, like a fertile, well-drained soil. Excess nitrogen creates problems because it increases leaf growth at the expense of flowers and bean pods so no need to add fertilizer.

Unlike some beans that can be used as green or shell beans, kidney beans are primarily used as a dry bean. The seeds will become clearly visible as they swell within the pod. Let them ripen until fully dry before harvest. If rain threatens, harvest and hang upside down in a dry shed or garage to finish drying. Thresh beans seeds from pods.

Cooked Beans Only Kidney beans contain a toxin that can cause severe gastrointestinal distress. The toxin is neutralized by cooking and is not present in the dried form of the bean. To cook raw kidney beans, boil for 30 minutes do not use a slow cooker, as the higher temperature is required to neutralize the toxin.

Grow Notes
These are climbing beans so the vines will need a medium to climb over; trellis, A-frame or fence are all popular solutions.

Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best eaten when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.

Sow
Sow direct at 1cm depth spaced 12cm apart in Spring after chances of frost have passed or early Summer. Rows should be spaced 50cm apart and be in full sun, with well-drained soil.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

ONE OF THE OLDEST RUNNER BEANS IN ITS TRUE FORM IN EXISTANCE. SCARLET RUNNER SEVEN YEAR BEAN! THE SCARLET EMPORER BEAN! THE KING OF THE BEANPOLE! THIS ONE FORMS A TUBER AND THEN KEEPS GROWING EVERY YEAR UP TO SEVEN YEARS! BOMB PROOF GROWING!

Description
One of the oldest runner beans now in existence. First documented in 1750. Scarlet Runner Beans originated in South America, in Guatemala and Mexico. These rapid climbers were popular in England until the late 19th century.

They do one thing and do it well: grow like mad. This does mean that you should be careful where you plant it. But it also means that you’re nearly guaranteed a beautiful mass of pretty green leaves, striking red blossoms, and easy-to-grow food: the beans are very yummy as young pods! Harvest seeds after the pods have dried. Good for use as either small snaps, sliced pods or green shells. Highly ornamental. Needs a trellis, fence or pole to train on. Scarlet Runner Beans possess an amazing zeal for life.

Need a spot that needs summertime screening? Sow some scarlet runners and watch your view improve–fast. Needs little tending; just keep the weeds down when young, then watch them go!

Scarlet Emperor sets fat, slightly fuzzy pods filled with a richer, more savory flavour than snap beans. Though the 6-8 inch, plump, juicy pods are less uniform than some varieties, the taste of Scarlet Emperor is as sweet as a bean gets. The surprise is their colour, every shade from a sassy hot pink to lilac streaked with a deep purple! Unfortunately, the colour fades with cooking. Borne on impressive 8-10 foot tall plants, sprays of beautiful scarlet-orange flowers are the showiest of all the varieties.

Grow Notes
Prefer full sun in well-drained soils. Frost tender Perennial which is grown as an annual in cool climates. They grow vigorously when they receive regular watering, so plants need a medium to climb over; trellis, A-frame or fence are all popular solutions. Best picked every day but don’t fret if you miss a day.

Sow
Sow direct in Spring or early Summer at a depth of 25mm. Space 15cm apart and 100 cm between rows.

Germination
4-7 days at 16-22°C

Maturity
70-90 days. In frost free areas (like Perth) Scarlet Runners will develop tuberous roots much like a dahlia and will reshoot every year. This gives them their other popular name: Seven Year Beans.

Description
From Wikipedia: The soybean, soy bean, or soya bean (Glycine max)[3] is a species of legume native to East Asia, widely grown for its edible bean, which has numerous uses.

Traditional unfermented food uses of soybeans include soy milk, from which tofu and tofu skin are made. Fermented soy foods include soy sauce, fermented bean paste, natt, and tempeh. Fat-free (defatted) soybean meal is a significant and cheap source of protein for animal feeds and many packaged meals. For example, soybean products, such as textured vegetable protein (TVP), are ingredients in many meat and dairy substitutes.[4]

Soy beans contain significant amounts of phytic acid, dietary minerals and B vitamins. Soy vegetable oil, used in food and industrial applications, is another product of processing the soybean crop. Soybean is the most important protein source for feed farm animals (that in turn yields animal protein for human consumption).[5]

From Healthline Website:

Soybeans are mainly composed of protein but also contain good amounts of carbs and fat.

The nutrition facts for 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of boiled soybeans are (1Trusted Source):

Calories: 173
Water: 63%
Protein: 16.6 grams
Carbs: 9.9 grams
Sugar: 3 grams
Fibre: 6 grams
Fat: 9 grams
Saturated: 1.3 grams
Monounsaturated: 1.98 grams
Polyunsaturated: 5.06 grams
Omega-3: 0.6 grams
Omega-6: 4.47 g
Protein
Soybeans are among the best sources of plant-based protein.

The protein content of soybeans is 36–56% of the dry weight (2Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source).

One cup (172 grams) of boiled soybeans boasts around 29 grams of protein (5Trusted Source).

The nutritional value of soy protein is good, although the quality is not quite as high as animal protein (6Trusted Source).

The main types of protein in soybeans are glycinin and conglycinin, which make up approximately 80% of the total protein content. These proteins may trigger allergic reactions in some people (4Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source).

Consumption of soy protein has been linked with a modest decrease in cholesterol levels (8Trusted Source, 9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source).

Fat
Soybeans are classified as oilseeds and used to make soybean oil.

The fat content is approximately 18% of the dry weight — mainly polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids, with small amounts of saturated fat (11Trusted Source).

The predominant type of fat in soybeans is linoleic acid, accounting for approximately 50% of the total fat content.

Carbs
Being low in carbs, whole soybeans are very low on the glycaemic index (GI), which is a measure of how foods affect the rise in blood sugar after a meal (12).

This low GI makes soybeans suitable for people with diabetes.

Fibre
Soybeans contain a fair amount of both soluble and insoluble fibre.

The insoluble fibres are mainly alpha-galactosides, which may cause flatulence and diarrhoea in sensitive individuals (13Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source).

Alpha-galactosides belong to a class of fibres called FODMAPs, which may exacerbate the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (15Trusted Source).

Despite causing unpleasant side effects in some people, soluble fibres in soybeans are generally considered healthy.

They are fermented by bacteria in your colon, leading to the formation of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which may improve gut health and reduce your risk of colon cancer (16Trusted Source, 17Trusted Source).

SUMMARY
Soybeans are a very rich source of plant-based protein and fat. What’s more, their high fibre content is good for your gut health.

Grow Notes
Plant in late Spring/Summer. Soybeans need a long, hot growing season to thrive, and they don’t like frost.

Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

Sow
Sow direct at 20mm depth spaced 15cm apart in Spring after chances of frost have passed. Rows should be spaced 50cm apart and be in full sun, with well-drained soil.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Germination
7-14 days at 25-30°C

Maturity

Description
Also known as Horto Beans, these are just divine!

These are great beans for eating and can be added to all sorts of dishes, they are a soft bean, not a grinding bean.

Grow Notes
Bush beans, also called dwarf beans, grow as bushes so staking them is optional.

Sow directly into a rich soil and keep mulched to improve water retention. When sowing do not allow soil to get too wet as beans can rot.

Pick regularly to encourage more growth. Pods are best eaten when young and tender. Let pods fully mature if growing for dried beans.

Sow
Soaking bean seeds in water 1-2 hours before planting speeds germination.

Sow direct at 25mm depth spaced 15cm apart in Spring or Summer. Rows should be spaced 50cm apart and be in full sun, with well-drained soil.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Germination
5-11 days at 21-30°C

Maturity
70 days to maturity, Annual plant.

DETROIT BEETROOTS LOVE OUR SANDY SOILS AND WEATHER! EACH CAPSULE CONTAINS AROUND THREE PLANTS!

The Detroit Globe beetroot variety stands as a testament to longevity and performance, tracing its roots back to its inception in 1892 by the D.M. Ferry Seed Company in Michigan, USA. Originating from an early maturing European Blood Turnip (Long Red), it has retained its popularity among both commercial growers and home gardeners over the years.

Characterized by its globe-shaped roots and deep red hue, this beetroot variety remains a steadfast favorite. Modern iterations of the Detroit Globe boast tolerance to Cercospora leaf spot and downy mildew, along with resistance to bolting—traits often denoted by the inclusion of the Detroit name.

This classic main-crop beetroot yields smooth-skinned globes with robust skin and a rich ox-blood flesh color. Renowned for its high yield and excellent taste, it presents a vibrant internal coloring that appeals to culinary enthusiasts. Suitable for both early and main crops, it thrives in various conditions, including container cultivation throughout the year. Resilient to downy mildew and adaptable to diverse soil types, it proves itself as an ideal cultivar for succession sowings, offering reliability and versatility to growers of all levels.

GOLDEN BOY BEETROOT! NATURES SPIRIT AND ENERGY BOOSTER! PLUS IT LOOKS PRETTY, IS EASY TO GROW AND TASTES GOOD!

Description

Imagine this: something as humble as a beetroot could potentially enhance endurance and boost performance. Whether you’re sipping on a glass of beetroot juice or savoring some delicious baked beetroot, the benefits are straightforward and, in my opinion, quite tasty.

But really, why not give it a try? Beetroot packs a punch when it comes to nutrients, offering a range of health benefits. Loaded with vitamins A, B, and C, along with antioxidants like beta-carotene and beta-cyanine, plus folic acid, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, iron, and fiber, it’s a powerhouse of goodness.

The vibrant pigments in beetroot, known as betalains, come in two hues: the bold red/violet of betacyanins and the sunny yellow of betaxanthins. Both types of betalains boast nitrogen and serve as potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. But that’s not all—beetroot is also chock-full of nitrate, which converts into nitric oxide.

Now, nitric oxide is quite the game-changer. It’s a potent vasodilator often found in supplements to give bodybuilders that coveted “pump” and aid endurance. However, nitric oxide is swiftly metabolized in the body, meaning its vasodilating effects are short-lived.

But here’s where it gets interesting: nitric oxide plays a vital role in exercise and performance by boosting blood flow to the muscles, making it easier for mitochondria (your cellular powerhouses) to churn out energy. Additionally, it helps regulate blood pressure and muscle contractions.

So, whether you’re looking to boost your workout or simply reap the myriad health benefits, beetroot might just be the delicious solution you’ve been searching for!

Grow Notes
Plant seeds in moist well drained soils during Spring, Summer and Autumn. Avoid planting in extremely hot or cold weather which can affect germination and growth. Grown in full sun.

Young seedlings will need protection from pests, pets and weather until they are established.

BORECOLE IS BASICALLY A CURLY RED KALE TYPE VEGETABLE THAT TASTES BETTER THAN ANY OTHER! LOW STOCKS!

Description
Borecole Red Kale is sweeter and more tender than traditional curly kale! It’s delicious steamed, stir-fried or eaten raw, try it finely chopped in an autumn salad. The distinctive red leaves do not look out of place in an ornamental border either!

Excellent winter hardiness and we are told that pests prefer the green types! Enjoy a home grown harvest of Red Kale from now through to spring with succession planting! (Plant some now and again in a week and again the week after that to extend your eating time).

Harvested by cutting through the stem just above ground level with a sharp knife. After harvesting cut a half inch deep cross in the stump and you’ll be rewarded with a second crop later in the year.

Grow Notes
These like a fertile, well draining, moisture retentive, firm soil. The main crop beds should be dug over and firmed a few months before planting.

Sow
Plant in Spring or Summer. Kale seed can be sown either directly into a seed bed or started off in growing cells or seed trays under cover. Seeds should be sown thinly and thinned out to 3 inches as they develop.

Seedlings are ready for transplanting when they have 5 or 6 leaves. Use a dibber to make a hole large enough to accommodate the root ball and firm the soil around the plant.

Spacing between plants varies, for compact heads space at 30cm, for large heads allow 45cm and leave just 15cm between to encourage their conical shape.

Keep the young plants weed free and well-watered until established and then only water during dry periods.

Germination
7-14 days at 8-30°C

Maturity
Harvest leaves in approx 50-60 days.

THE DELICATE AND DELICIOUS STALKS HELD HIGH WITH THE FLORETS ON TOP IS JUST BECOMING POPULAR! A CROSS BETWEEN BROCCOLI AND CHINESE BROCCOLI GAILAN, IT’S A VERSATILE VEGGIE THAT DESERVES A PLACE IN EVERY VEGETABLE GARDEN!

Grow Notes
Broccoli is a cool season crop, this variety has slender heads, followed by side shoots extending its harvest. As with most vegetables, Broccoli grows best in a spot with full sun. However, when the temperatures start to rise creating some shade for them should help prevent bolting.

Protection is usually suggested to keep your crop safe from aphids and caterpillars. Tying some white fabric on to sticks will fool the white cabbage moths to look elsewhere as they think there is already too many moths laying eggs in that spot – it works!

Broccoli plants shouldn’t need supplemental feeding if your soil is rich. If they look like they need a boost or you want to hasten maturity, hit them with some nitrogen. Fish emulsion is good for this.

Sow
Plant direct or raise seedlings in early Spring or Autumn. Plant 5mm deep, 50cm apart with 60cm between rows in well-draining soils rich in organic matter.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Seedlings can be transplanted into the garden once they have their first true leaves and are large enough to handle easily.

65-70 days.

BROCCOLI GARDEN GREEN IS THE CLASSIC AND MOST LOVED BROCCOLI OF ALL TIME! GROWN IN MILLIONS OF GARDENS RIGHT NOW ALL OVER THE WORLD!

Description
Broccoli is a stout, thick-stemmed plant in the Brassicaceae family, which also includes cabbage, kale, Brussels sprouts, and several Asian greens, like bok choy. The part we eat is actually the buds of the broccoli flower. If left unharvested, the broccoli head will open into small greenish-yellow flowers.
Broccoli is so rewarding to grow because it gets your garden started early and continues to send up side shoots for weeks, after you harvest the main head, giving you a long harvest season.
Broccoli varieties that are prolific at sending up these side shoots are often listed as sprouting broccoli. If you’re a broccoli lover, having even a few plants in the garden will give you a steady supply.

Botanical Name
Brassica oleracea var. italica
Common Names
Broccoli, Sprouting Broccoli, Calabreseitalica

How to Harvest Broccoli
Don’t wait until your broccoli produces a large head as you see in the grocery store. There are some large head broccoli varieties, but most are ready to start harvesting once they’ve reached the size of a large fist. If you wait too long to harvest, the buds will open. You can still eat the stalks at this point, but they’re a bit tougher and the cooked flowers turn from yellow to beige.
Cut the head with about 4 inches of stalk attached. New flower heads will soon form in the leaf axils and all around the lower stalk. These will be much smaller than the initial head, but still delicious. Keep harvesting and they will keep producing.

Grow Notes
Broccoli is a cool season crop, when grown in temperatures that are too hot for it, they will bolt and flower instead of forming heads. This variety has medium sized heads, followed by numerous side shoots extending its harvest and is slow to bolt. As with most vegetables, Broccoli grows best in a spot with full sun. However, when the temperatures start to rise creating some shade for them should help prevent bolting.

Protection is usually suggested to keep your crop safe from aphids and caterpillars.

Broccoli plants shouldn’t need supplemental feeding if your soil is rich. If they look like they need a boost or you want to hasten maturity, hit them with some nitrogen. Fish emulsion is good for this.

Sow
Plant direct or raise seedlings in early Spring or Autumn. Plant 5mm deep, 50cm apart with 60cm between rows in well-draining soils.

Keep soil moist but never wet or dry.

Seedlings can be transplanted into the garden once they have their first true leaves and are large enough to handle easily.

Description
Delicious early and late season heirloom favourite.

Introduced to the seed trade around 1910, this variety was brought to our shores-and our gardens-by Italian immigrants. A deliciously old-fashioned broccoli.

Tall, erect, 30-36″ plants give way to multiple side shoots once the central head is cut. Harvest 60-90 days after transplant.

This is an old standard variety that has been a mainstay in many people’s gardens year in and year out. This is partly because it does not mature uniformly and partly because it produces many side shoots. Perfect for home garden, fresh use.

SEEDS MEDIUM SIZED, ROUND, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

YOU HAVE TO GROW THIS AT LEAST ONCE IN YOUR LIFETIME!!!! BROCCOLI THAT IS A CROSS BETWEEN BROCOLLI AND CAULIFLOWER THAT AMAZES THE EYES AND THE TASTEBUDS!

Description
The amazing Broccoli Romanesco!

Romanesco broccoli, also known as Romanesque cauliflower or simply as Romanesco, is an edible flower bud of the species Brassica oleracea. First documented in Italy, it is chartreuse in colour. Romanesco has a striking appearance because its form is a natural approximation of a fractal. (Each section is made up of an identical form to that of the largest floret right down to the smallest part.)

When compared to a traditional cauliflower, its texture as a vegetable is more crunchy, and its flavour is not as assertive, being delicate and nutty.
As a vegetable, Romanesco is rich in vitamin C, vitamin K, dietary fibre and carotenoids.

This is not genetically modified but is a natural occurring form that has been bred by growers. Simply amazing and very striking on the plate! I can imagine posh restaurants everywhere will be serving these very soon!

SEEDS ROUND, DARK BLACK, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Broccoli is a cool season crop, when grown in temperatures that are too hot for it, they will bolt and flower instead of forming heads. This variety has large pale green spiralling heads growing to 20cm. As with most vegetables, Broccoli grows best in a spot with full sun. However, when the temperatures start to rise creating some shade for them should help prevent bolting.

Protection is usually suggested to keep your crop safe from aphids and caterpillars.

PERRENIAL BROCCOLI WALTHAM KEEPS PRODUCING SIDE HEADS FOR 3 MONTHS AFTER YOU PICK THE MAIN HEAD! EASY TO GROW AND DELICIOUS TO EAT! YOU CAN EAT THE LEAVES TOO!

Description
100% NO GMO & HOME GROWN SEEDS! EACH PLANT SUPPLIES OVER A KILO IN PRODUCE! First grown in Waltham, Massachusetts. Pick side shoots for up to 3 months. Yields more than 1kg per plant. Classic open pollinated cool climate broccoli.

Best harvested through to mid Spring. Heat sensitive, so not a summer variety. Produces large main heads and many side shoots.

The plant from which modern broccoli is derived first grew in the wild in the Mediterranean region and in Asia Minor. Broccoli gradually spread to the rest of Europe and to the New World, where Thomas Jefferson included this strange new vegetable in his experimental garden.

The Italians appreciated it so much that it got the name “Italian asparagus.” After World War I, Italian brothers Stefano and Andrea D’Arrigo brought their Sicilian variety of broccoli and began growing it in San Jose, California; they later shipped it to Boston’s North End, where it established a quickly expanding market.
