Allium cernuum (Nodding Wild Onion)
Allium cernuum (Nodding Wild Onion)
Our Price: $3.00
(Out of Stock)

A dear friend introduced me to this native species through her dried culinary herbs.  I've loved it ever since. Good bye chives!  Green tops have a strong but not over powering garlic-chive-onion taste perfect fresh and keeps its flavour when dried.  Perfect for flavouring veggie dips topping soups, stews and much more. I haven't used the slender bulbs yet as we're want to expand the plantation.  A lovely plant with nodding ball of nectar filled pink starry flowers. Will spread via offsets and self seeds when happy. Prefers full or semi sun and average garden soil. Mine grow happily intermingled with rosemary and oregano.  Deer resistant. Drought tolerant when establiahed
Kale, Red Russian (Brassica oleracea)
Kale, Red Russian (Brassica oleracea)
Our Price: $3.00
(Out of Stock)

Can grow to 2 meters tall; 1 meter wide. Blue green oak leaf type brassica with purple veining.  Very ornamental and very edible.  Very thick stems can withstand heavy snows. Russian heirloom. Cold hardy to -10C with very little protection.  Plants will survive for years if you don't let them set seed.  Will self sow and provide an abundance of greens.  Leaves are sweet and tender. Use flowering shoots like rapini; turns green when cooked. Good substitute for Purple Sprouting Broccoli. Yummy.
Kale, Sweet Hardy (Brassica napus)
Kale, Sweet Hardy (Brassica napus)
Our Price: $3.00
(Out of Stock)

An overwintering variety with deep green leaves and shoots.  Great sweet nutty tasting greens for late winter to early spring.  Doesn't have the pungent or bitterness of other kales we've grown or tried.  Hasn't been tried it as a spring sown green.  Survived our -14C winter temps without any protection. Unname seed comes through an exchange with a good friend who has horticultural connections with northern gardeners.  We've given it the best moniker after much sampling.  Great fresh, steamed, try drying it for handy greens and chips!  Tight unopened flowering shoots great fresh and cooked like asparagus broccoli types.
Pepper 'Apple Sweet'
Pepper 'Apple Sweet' seeds
Our Price: $2.50
(Out of Stock)

77 days. A lovely sweet thick walled broad shouldered 12cm long conical pepper is more of a pimento type than anything else.  Stocky robust plants are extremely productive especially in an open ended greenhouse.  Keep fairly well as here it is early January and I still have some fresh ones in the veggie crisper.  Again, if you start these along side the tomatoes in mid February you will have a bounty of these tasty beauties. Tobacco mosaic virus resistant. Open pollinated.
Pepper 'Red Peter'
Pepper, 'Peter'
Our Price: $3.25
(Out of Stock)

90 days. Open pollinated little naughty looking peppers. Not too shocking where you need to give a 'birds and bees' talk with the youngin's but tuck them into a bachelorette bouquet and there will be giggles. These are thin fleshed hot peppers making it ideal for chilli pepper.

Skookum Grow: our natural germination enhancer
Skookum Grow: our natural germination enhancer
Our Price: $3.50
(Out of Stock)

My tried and true germination initiator to promote more uniform and consistent germination in many plants we grow including hard to start species such as Meconopsis, Trillium, and Paeonia. Made from entirely natural ingredients of Ascophyllum nodosum kelp extract and fulvic acid, ‘Skookum Grow’ is a holistic approach using balanced formula of gibberellins, cytokinins, auxins, and enzymes with fulvic acid as an additional germination catalyst.  This concentrated formula is easy to use where 5 ml of ‘Skookum Grow’ makes 1 litre of seed soak solution.  The soak time differs for each seed type (see ‘cultivation notes’ on your seed packet) as it usually ranges between 12-48 hours but never beyond 72 hours.  Being organic, this product has a limited shelf life once made into a solution and is perfect for watering your plants once you are finished soaking your seeds so nothing is lost.  Please store any unused portion of ‘Skookum Grow’ concentrate in your refrigerator.
Lab analysis results show that the kelp portion of our formula contains a minimum 400 ppm of cytokinins, gibberellins, and auxins. Two 5 ml packets.
Dark Star zucchini
Squash, Summer: Dark Star zucchini
Our Price: $3.25
(Out of Stock)

50 days. A wonderful productive open pollinated zucchini that often out performs in vigor, taste and production of many fancy hybrids. Excellent market type as it keeps and travels well. Fruits are dense, dark skinned, and yellow tinted flesh making it perfect for almost any dish whether it be a veggie platter to soup, chili, spaghetti sauce and much more. Disease resistant; drought tolerant. Surprised us with its near non stop production during our intense drought. Truly an heirloom-in-waiting. C. pepo
Squash: Styrian Hull-less seed pumpkin
Squash: Styrian Hull-less seed pumpkin
Our Price: $3.25

90 days. C. pepo. I grew up with this pumpkin. I remember Opa making his famous cumber salad in the style of his native Styria (or Steiermark province in Southeastern Austria) where liberal amounts of pumpkin seed oil is used. Then there was also his famous endive salad again liberally dosed with pumpkin seed oil. To this day these salads are feature dishes at all family gatherings. These are hefty 10 kg pumpkins that store well in a cool basement if you don't have time to harvest the seed all at once. Flesh is pale and coarse; not great for the table but ideal if you're going to finish off pigs, turkeys or chickens for the freezer...of course after harvesting the hull-less seeds! Productive plants with good disease resistance. Ripe fruits never turn orange but develop a slight orange blush under the primarily green mottled skin. Cucurbita pepo
