Bare Root now in!
At last the bare root trees and hedging have arrived. Usually they are available from early December but it was too wet and mild to lift them in 2019. We now have a massive selection including if you want to create a native hedge. You can plant these now until early March. We are all trained in horticulture so we love to help. If you need guidance on how to plant a bare root tree then Ruth has written a blog on her page here on the website. https://kilnfarm.com/plant-bare-root-tree/
We have introduced these new seeds and growing kits into our farmshop. They are called Microgreens. It is so that you can grow your own fresh leaves, sprouting beens and salads on your windowsill or in the kitchen. They are proving very popular. It is great to think that people are eating so healthily. Everything fresh always tastes better!
Seed Potatoes in the Shop
We have first earlies, earlies, maincrop, salad potatoes in all the favourite varieties. You can buy them by the net, or we are happy to split the bag so that you can spread your harvest over a long period with just a few of each sort.
If you are new to this you might like this blog here on our website giving you some pointers. https://kilnfarm.com/how-to-grow-your-own-potatoes/
Mr Fothergills Seeds
We stock Mr Fothergills seeds. They are a local company and we think they offer good value for money. We stock the top 100 flowers and vegetables. We stock their organic vegetable seed range too.
We also love the 'seedball' range. The tiny clay balls are moulded to contain seeds and a touch of chilli to stop slugs eating them before they grow into a selection of flowers. There are different varieties of seeds each with a speciality encouraging certain types of insect and wildlife to your garden.
