Vitis vinifera 'Black Hamburgh' (syn. 'Schiava Grossa') 

 This very old dessert grape is the same as the Great Vine at Hampton Court Palace which is now the oldest and most famous grape vine in existence. Planted in 1768 it still produces about 600lbs of grapes each year. The large berries are dark red/purple, juicy and sweet. Will ripen in a cold greenhouse but will benefit from heat in cooler areas.


Season: Sept.


Plant size: 3 litre pot.


Available for delivery: all year.


 

Grape vines have been grown in Britain since Roman times. They are very hardy plants that require only a small amount of space and can be planted along a south facing wall or fence or trained over an arch or pergola. They are decorative as well as productive and with the introduction of modern varieties it is now possible to plant grapes outside in most UK areas that can be used for eating fresh or making wine. Vines should be planted 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) apart. Unless otherwise stated, grapes are supplied in pots and are available throughout the year.

 

Don't forget to include a Gripple Wire Tensioning Kit on your order, the easy way to support grape vines.  For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).

Strawberry Plants 'Malling Centenary' (12 plants)
£17.95 inc. p&pStrawberry Plants 'Malling Centenary' (12 plants)Bred in the UK by East Malling Research, this new variety was chosen to mark the 100th anniversary of the research station in 2013 and is considered to be the British strawberry of the future! Bred for the supermarkets but with the aim of putting flavour back into the berry, it has a unique combination of outstanding taste, heavy yields and good shelf life. The fruits are very juicy and the eating quality is consistently good with high sugar levels and an excellent strawberry flavour. We think that Malling Centenary also has great potential as a garden variety - Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr. was certainly impressed with the flavour when he was filmed tasting the fruit for the BBC's Great British Food Revival and the variety was shortlisted for 'Plant of the Year' at the 2013 Chelsea Flower Show.Buy Now
