So what varieties of seeds have you bought/recommend for next season? ??
I'm after a plum type tomato for making sauces with....I think a friend has some Italian seed from his travels I may try...
Anything new anyone's trying??
I'm going for less eating toms next year as I just can't eat them in time and more cooking toms....I want to increase my strawberries as hardly got any really..
I'm looking forward to trying B'RS beans.... more dwarf french beans...and more salad crops in the greenhouse.
I think I'll have another go at the baby sweetcorn again .

We had brilliant results with a yellow cherry tomato called sun baby.



Heavy crops right through the season, sweet and juicy. Great flavour.

I am aiming for strawberries, blackberries, potatoes, carrots, beans, tomatoes plus a variety of herbs. The new place has an almost south facing rear garden, so looking forward to all the sunshine we (won't) have :)

Bob thank you for that I tend not to grow runner beans although I did grow trail of tears beans given to me by British Red. I grow dwarf french beans and this year I will be growing an Italian variety....The toms it's usually gardeners delight from seed or Alicante. ..dessere spuds and first early were arran pilot.
I'm going to grow more strawberries more sweet peas for cutting and my usual wizard field beans....carrots been okay this year parsnips are really sweet.
I will have a look see at sunbaby .
