Come on, who doesn’t want to find the King of the Ridge in their stocking this Christmas time? Or the Black Knight, Bloody Warrior or the Southampton Wonder?
If you’re not quite sure, then be reassured, these are just rare vegetables that the Heritage Seed Library are busy saving, and you can gift to a loved one this Christmas. This gift also helps to support the work of Garden Organic, which shares skills and knowledge with schools and local communities, as well as researching and promoting best organic practice to thousands of individuals, and helping to grow and preserve our seed heritage.
They get a gift pack, and if you go for some of the options then they also get seeds to grow a couple of these heritage varieties. I think it’s fun and a move on from adopting pandas and iguanas. And no one will object if you eat the King of the Ridge. They’re a bit funny about the pandas though.
