Seeds to Sow in January
Seeds for fast-maturing warm season flowers, herbs and vegetables can be planted this month in all climates. It's also time to start brassica seeds for a late autumn or winter harvest, keeping the seedlings well protected from excessive heat to avoid bolting. Find a full list of Seeds to Sow in January here.
Sweet Potato Tubers
Gardeners in subtropical climates can plant sweet potato tubers in January for a harvest in late autumn or winter, while those in tropical climates can plant and grow sweet potato year-round. Our tubers are first generation, grown for propagation with a reduced risk of disease. Browse sweet potato tubers here.
Coming in Early 2024
We're looking forward to stocking a huge selection of bulbs this year, starting with garlic in late January/February and closely followed by flower bulbs: daffodils, hyacinth, tulips, ranunculus and many more.
We don't take pre-orders for our garlic and flower bulbs, but you can browse the range and hit the 'notify me' button for any varieties that interest you. You'll then be the first to know when stocks are added. Browse garlic bulbs here and all flower bulbs here.
