Mega sweet, fuzz-free mini kiwis that hail from the frozen wastes of Siberia? No I’m not making it up. Intensely sugary, super easy-to-grow and even hardy down to -35C, if haribo reinvented the kiwi this would be it!

Cocktail Kiwis:

Nature's Haribo

Queen Victoria’s favourite fruit, these intensely fragrant berries somehow manage to combine the flavours of wild strawberries, pink guavas and a hint of candy floss.

With my new book, blog & national tour of talks, I hope to free allotmenteers from the grow your own timewarp of 'dig for victory' style veg & open up a whole new world of weird and wonderful flavours.

 

From cocktail kiwis and wasabi to green tea & inca berries, a massive array of delicious, stunningly beautiful and super easy-to-grow crops are out there just waiting to be given a chance.

 

Everything's been trialled and tested by me in my tiny Croydon garden to be genuinely easy-to-grow even on our blustery little islands. So what on earth are you waiting for?

 

Curious? Read my full manifesto here.

 

So, What could you be growing?

 

Sticky, sweet & incredibly exotic, you might not believe it but uber trendy South American inca berries are infinitely easier to grow than the lowly tomato. If you plant just one fruit crop next year, make this it!

Love those deliciously nutty pods of edamame beans you get in Japanese restaurants, but frustrated you can’t grow them in the UK? Well I think I have gone one better with super easy-to-grow chickpea ‘edamame’!

CHICKPEA 'EDAMAME'

Jelly bean-coloured, blight resistant 'spuds' that even come with tasty shamrock-shaped leaves. Watch this space for my upcoming guide to growing cooking and eating these tasty, easy-to-grow veg.

EXOTIC INCA BERRIES

FINAL 2 DATES: Horticulture is facing a crisis. Our best and brightest are being put off by images of the industry being all about low skilled jobs and rubbish pay. But that simply is not true!

 

I'm setting out to set the record straight with a 12 date UK & Ireland tour of free talks to reveal the huge range of opportunities out there for aspiring professional plant geeks, including my own tips & tricks on how to get ahead.
