The Marshalls Family
Looking for something...
- Grow-your-own Strawberries
Save yourself the headache of strawberry shortfalls in the chaos of uncertainty. Nationwide Strawberry farms are in turmoil as a 20% shortfall in migrant workers becomes a reality.
- Purple Reign - Marshalls Love Purple
Marshalls likes to keep on top of the trends for the coming year and one of that has caught my eye is the Purple Reign trend, it is my favourite colour after all.
- Grow snow-white asparagus for creamy, nutty spears
Yes, green asparagus harvested freshly from the vegetable plot is simply wonderful – so claim many a kitchen-savvy and green-fingered home-grower.
- The Good Life in January
Is this the year for you to start living the Good Life? You don’t have to go as extreme as the sitcom-renowned Tom and Barbara in their Surbiton home but there are some aspects you can take on board. I, for one, am going to embark on a bit of home-growing this year and practice what I preach.
- Year of the Pepper - Gogorez F1

- Growing Success Stories

- 3 things you can do about the vegetable & salad shortage
Supermarket giants are rationing firm favourites like broccoli & iceberg lettuces as recent bad weather in Spain, Greece and Turkey has caused a shortage of vital vegetables in 2017.
- Get Potatoes ready for chitting
The potatoes are out of the shed looking good and are ready for chitting. My personal preference is to place them in an old egg tray and store them in a cool but frost free place (I keep mine in my trusty garden shed). You should see the first sign of shoots within a few weeks. This is the ideal time to prepare your potato bed, while eagerly awaiting planting time.
- Tomato Montello Wins Again
Tomato Montello and Premio Tomato wins 1st place in show.
