‘Dragons Tongue’ is a stunning new variety of wild rocket which has intense purple red veining on the leaf. This red veining makes for a visually appealing salad. ‘Dragon’s Tongue’ also has great flavour.
Australia's favourite rocket and a much improved variety on previous selections. It is also slow to bolt. The dark green leaves have good texture and excellent flavour. Plant from early spring until mid-autumn for year round cropping.
My favourite roquette, it’s spicy but not too hot. Its leaves are wide and not deeply lobed. It stands hot summer temperatures well. I can pick it nearly the year round if I plant it anew every six weeks or so.
‘Intense’, a new variety, has fewer green “off types” than other ruby chards. The main stalk is deep red and this colour carries through the veining. The leaf is more rugose (wrinkled or creased) than other varieties.

This is the standard silverbeet (Swiss chard) with dark green, savoyed (crinkled) leaves, white veins and broad white stems. Sow from early spring until mid-summer for cropping most of the year. The later sowings will produce throughout winter.
An uncommon perennial herb/vegetable which will give salads a tangy lemon flavour. It can be cooked like spinach, made into a creamy fish sauce or a sorrel soup. Use young leaves only. Direct sow 1/2cm deep 12 seeds per 30cm and thin to 30cm apart using thinning as baby leaf.
‘Vegesgetti’ is a outstanding brand new hybrid yellow fruited spaghetti squash with yellow fruit with traditional interior of richly flavoured spaghetti squash noodles. The plant is a semi-bush style so quite suited to smaller spaces.
Black Glove is best sown from early April until early September to give excellent crops during the cooler months. If sown during hot periods it is likely to bolt. It is equally suitable for baby leaf and full size bunching spinach.
This very early bunching onion is a cross between a bulbing onion and a spring onion. It has all the virtues of a spring onion but with a milder taste. Sow from August to March for all year round cropping.
Paragon is the market leader across Australia grown by more growers than any other spring onion. Fantastic in our trials its vigour allows it to be grown all year round cropping well even in winter.. It has deep blue-green leaves and long white shanks.
Polaris cobs grow to 20cm long and are sweet and juicy. The plant can make 180-200cm tall and provides good disease resistance to ensure a bumper crop. A terrific 'honey and cream' variety to use instead of Samurai.
A well-tried quality intermediate type with a proven disease resistance profile for growing a larger type fruit to 150gms approximately. Good quality and strong resistance to cracking is another advantage. Bred for trellis production in the garden.
Felicity was a stand out in our trials. It has a terrific flavour when ripe, it doesn’t split and it has good disease resistance. I was picking good ripe fruit at the end of April. Felicity is an indeterminate variety so it needs staking.
