SeeKay Beetroot 'Egyptian' Appx 550 seeds
SeeKay Beetroot 'Egyptian' Appx 550 seeds
Offered by Seekay Horticultural Supplies
Price: £0.99

3.0 out of 5 stars There are better varieties out there, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy variety to grow but lacking in taste! Fast germination and growth from outdoor sowings from April (2014), flesh is not at flavoursome as bolt hardy or other 'purple' varieties. Variety is ok when roasted and may be ok for chutney but not great for pickling or boiling!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great variety and great tasting lettuce for early and late sowing, 6 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great variety and great tasting lettuce for early and late sowing. Very good germination, over 90% (as always with Premier Seeds Direct). Will bolt in hot hot dry months so plant in semi shade in the summer. I've grown this successfully in the cold greenhouse over winter for cut and come again leaves and in the garden for butter heads.

5.0 out of 5 stars best green you can buy, 22 April 2014

if you're only going to grow one 'green' veg, grow perpetual spinach, sow in modules and transplant 5-10in apart. it will crop until April/May next year. Excellent germination as always from Seekay

5.0 out of 5 stars very good germination, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
parsley is often hard to germinate as it can require stratification (a period of cold weather) however I've had 90% germination from 4 separate sowing this year with no special attention.

Aquaponics for Beginners - A Step by Step Guide to Aquaponic Gardening in Your Own Backyard
Price: £2.24

3.0 out of 5 stars For complete novice, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
if you nothing about aquaponics then is little article will give you the basics without overwhelming you. is lacks diagrams/images on set ups and equipment and has no case studies. it lacks in depth husbandry requirements of livestock which is probably the most important factor ion considering aquaponics. that said if you want to know the basics principles is good
