The range of suppliers that provide interesting heritage and perennial vegetables is increasing all the time. I used to survey all the companies I knew of each year to provide a summary for readers but that would be too big a job now! So I want to do the occasional blog post to bring attention to certain seed suppliers and plant nurseries that I think are particularly good. Pennard Plants are one of these.
I have been ordering from them for years, since my early days of sourcing perennial vegetables and I would think I have had something every year since. This week I have just taken delivery of three step-over fruit trees, a hydrophyllum virginianum, a Chinese celery and a mouse garlic plant – all new to me. More about the fruit trees soon once they have been planted properly.
I have just spotted some perennial buckwheat and other things I did not order before, so am about to do so.
The sun has been shining this afternoon and my partner and I have been out in the garden tidying up a bit and admiring the snowdrops and aconites, the lamb’s lettuce and the many and various plants and shrubs that are preparing to burst forth soon!
