There are many more, some better suited to the warmer seasons, so just ask if you’re wondering. I also have ‘Sow When’ and ‘Companion Planting’ charts to help you plan your garden.

Non-organic range below* – these are the supplementary seeds that Greenpatch supplies to meet the demand for varieties that are not available from their own certified organic farm or from uncertified organic growers who are known to them. They are still untreated, open-pollinated, GM-free, and as with organic seeds you can safely keep the seed from the plants you have grown to sow in years to come. When an organic product is available I will always order this in preference to the non-organic option, and only organic seeds are on display in my Greenpatch Organic Seeds market box – so please ask if you are looking for any of the varieties below as you may not find them easily!

Peas (bush and climbing), Snowpeas, Broad Beans, Flanders Poppies, Purple Sprouting Broccoli, Chinese cabbage and Sugarloaf cabbage, Cosmic Purple carrots, Brussels Sprouts, Celeriac, Kale (Black Toscana and Dwarf Blue Curled), Onions (brown and white), Californian Poppies and Larkspurs.

*My personal policy is that if I garden organically at home, even if I plant seeds that have not been grown organically, the end product that my family eats will be vastly superior in health benefits and flavour to anything I could buy in the shops as 99.9% of the inputs to it will be organic and it will be picked fresh when perfectly ripe and ready to eat. It will also be truck-free, tractor-free, and fossil-fuel-free, so it will still be doing the planet a favour 🙂
