Aronia x prunifolia 'Viking' (syn. Black Chokeberry)

With three times the level of antioxidants found in blueberries and high in vitamin C, this is thought to be the healthiest fruit in the world. The berries are too sharp to be eaten raw but are ideal for sauces in summer puddings or blended into juices and smoothies. The plants are very hardy, easy to grow and will do best in moist, fertile soils in sun or partial shade.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Season: late August - September.


Plant size: 3 litre pot.


Available for delivery: all year.

Rhubarb 'Thompson's Terrifically Tasty' (3 crowns)
£14.95Rhubarb 'Thompson's Terrifically Tasty' (3 crowns)This aptly named variety goes back more than 80 years to the village of Great Oakley in Essex. It has been selected year on year and replanted by the Thompsons, who grow rhubarb commercially for sale into the London wholesale markets. It's great attribute is that it is the very first outdoor rhubarb on the market, as early as February, which means that it competes with the forced 'Golden Triangle' rhubarb but without all the bother of harvesting in the cellar with a candle on your head! In the first New Year flush the stems are shortish but thick and plentiful. The second crop in mid summer is an altogether larger stem of fine mid red colour. The flavour is delicious and when cooked with a handful of elderflowers makes a superb dessert.Buy Now
