Peter Freeman from Thomson & Morgan Seeds speaks about three new plants for 2019.
The Thompson and Morgan potato trials have been taking place at Capel Manor College. The potatoes were planted in May be Level 1 Seasonal Gardener students. Colin Randall or ‘Spud’ from Thompson and Morgan explained to Ken Crowther about the RHS assessment.
Gardens across the UK are looking glorious now with summer bedding in full bloom. Suffolk based Thompson & Morgan is one of the leading horticultural mail order companies responsible for supply hundreds of thousands of plants. Ken Crowther spoke to Peter about the variety of plants available.
If you got your first early seed potatoes planted in February they should be showing their heads come June. These early varieties produced a heavy yield of short, oval tubers with firm and waxy white flesh. Thompson and Morgan’s vegetable man Colin Randall spoke to Ken Crowther.
There’s a lot of enthusiasm for growing spuds which is partly down to gardeners being encouraged to grow them not just in the ground but in bags and containers on patios and balconies as Thompson & Morgan’s veg man Colin Randall told Ken Crowther.
