    Superfood

    Celery is known for being extremely low in calories so much so that you burn the calories off just by eating it. The energy required to chew, swallow, digest and eliminate celery, called the thermic effect, is about 15 percent of its caloric value. So, if you eat 2 stalks that contain a total of 12 calories, you would burn close to two of those 12 calories processing the celery.

  • Growing Chillies

    Tips for growing chillies

    Now's the time to sow your Chillies. Sow inside a polytunnel or on a windowsill. There are many varieties of chillies to choose from that vary in heat from the sweet bell pepper to the Carolina reaper.  Sow during January, February and March, Maintain at 21ºC (70ºF) until seedlings germinate, ideally in a heated propagator , as some varieties need high temperatures to germinate reliably When large enough, prick out seedlings into 8 cm (3 inch) pots. Pot-on into 15 cm (6 inch) pots as they grow, before moving them to their final home. Chillies can be grown in the greenhouse/polytunnel border or in growbags or 20–25 cm (8–10 inch) pots. Try to maintain temperatures above 16C. Some varieties grow as high as 90 cm (3 feet). The stems are brittle so the weight of fruits can break the plants if they are not tied to canes.

  • Care details for Marquee

    Taking care of a marquee

    We suggest you use hot, soapy water and a clean cloth, alternatively use a specialist cleaner..."Fenwick’s" which is stocked in most DIY chains and caravanning stores. Please ensure your material is completely dry before you store it away. If you pack your marquee covers away whilst still damp, the material may perish and fall apart as mould will attack the fibres.

  • Claytonia

    what you need to know about claytonia

    This time of year is when many will harvest their claytonia plant. Claytonia isn't very well known in Britain. Claytonia is an attractive winter salad crop, rich in vitamin C. It is usually steamed much like spinach which it also resembles in taste. I have attached a recipe for homemade pasta with claytonia (miners lettuce).
