Follow this handy sowing guide to ensure your Christmas veg arrives on your table, right on schedule! The packs in this collection contain more than enough seeds for even the biggest festive feast, so check individual pack guidelines to keep a steady supply throughout the year. An onion is not just for Christmas...!
It's one of the trickier plants to grow from seed, but the rewards for your patience are huge! These organic seeds are a perennial variety, meaning once established you will have an endless supply of this lovely, fragrant herb!
If you don't like onion, then you must be pretty hungry! They are in almost any recipe you can think of and along with carrot and celery they form the 'holy trinity' from which soups, stews, and sauces are built.
This super versatile veg is ideal for pickling, but can also add colour and taste to roasts, stir frys or salads. They are one of few vegetables which can be stored for months without turning yucky! This means you can harvest in October and still have braised red cabbage with your Xmas dinner!
If you think you don't like them, you've probably only ever had them boiled to a mushy mess. Fresh sprouts, roasted, sautéed or lighty boiled are a sweet, nutty revelation! And remember, a sprout isn't just for Christmas, it's for November to February!
