Growing Calendar for Seakale Angers
Delivery: Mid January to Late April
Highly productive giving more succulent stems which blanche more readily than other Seakale. Cook like asparagus, delicious.
Hardy perennial, native to Britain, which is very drought tolerant. Blanched stems, young flower heads and young leaves can all be eaten, but the traditional way is to serve in the same was as asparagus.
Once planted, allow to grow naturally for the first season, and remove all yellow foliage in the autumn.
To blanch the stems the dormant crown of the plant must be covered in late winter with a bucket or large flower pot with hole blocked to exclude all light (a rhubarb forcer is ideal).
In early spring you will be rewarded with tender white shoots - cut when 8-10in/20-25cm tall.
These have been very disappointing. See above for review
The product was old, wrinkled and dry and obviously lacking promise but possibly last in stock. The thongs had not been checked thoroughly for their suitability for purpose or despatch. I was most disappointed. I had bought the product in the past and it was fine.
Tomatoes taste just lovely picked fresh from the vine, tomatoes ripened by the sun have a unique flavour and sweetness making them great to add to salad, snack boxes or reduced to make delicious sauces.
Please unpack the plants as soon as you receive them and sit them in a tray of shallow water if they appear to have dried out in transit.
