I have a library of nearly 500 different varieties of vegetable seeds. Every year I grow up to 70 varieties from which to save seed. Many are returned to the Heritage Seed Library. Other I keep to refresh my stocks to grow for the table and the rest I like to share. Many are in my latest seed catalogue which is updated at the end of the year. Seeds can remain viable for many years if looked after. I recommend that if you want to keep seeds for more than a year you should store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I have some varieties that have been stored for more than20 years and which continue to remain viable.

To help cover my costs I ask for a donation of £1 for each packet plus postage of £1.50  Payment can be made using PayPal or by bank transfer (details provided with your order).  Alternatively, you can send me an S.A.E. with a donation of stamps.

If you would like to try some of my seeds please email me: to check that I have what you require.

Long live #heritagewheat . I bake with locally grown and saved Welsh grains and this is the result from Felin Ganol in Llanrhystud ⁦@wrffc21⁩

This is a wonderful Italian winter veg called cima di rapa aka broccoletto Almost completely destroyed by cabbage white butterflies in the summer it now livens up a stir fry. I will leave a few heads to go to seed in the spring. Indispensable

Just to let everyone who follows me know I recorded a podcast recently and if you want to listen you can find it here I promise I won't be offended if you don't but if you do please share 🙏🙏

I have been growing #lemongrass for years. So easy to propagate too. These I lifted from the polytunnel at the weekend and already new roots are emerging. They should be ready to pot up in a couple of weeks and kept on a sunny windowsill until late spring. #permaculture


The USDA’s new labeling for genetically modified foods goes into effect Jan. 1. Here’s what you need to know.

So what surprise did Mother Nature present you with on this fine New Year’s day??? Methinks this is one weird winter
