Mini Eggplants, Mini Cucumber, Pepper and Patio Tomato
Our 17cm pot range of vegetables are produced from F1 hybrid seed of selected high performing cultivars. The plants are sold as advanced specimens with flowers and some fruit set to give you the best possible start into early production in the spring.
By selecting superior F1 hybrid seed varieties you get the best possible vigour and disease resistance combined with superior fruit.
Our selections are suitable for both garden and container cultivation. With containers it is important to use a quality container mix that has been adjusted for pH and contains fertiliser. We would recommend either top dressing with a slow release fertiliser such as osmocote or liquid feeding on a regular basis. Further information is available from publications such as the Yates Garden Guide.
It is important to be vigilant for pests and diseases and then consult your local plant retailer for advice.

Pepper Redskin and its golden fruited cousin Mohawk have been especially bred for growing on the patio or deck. They prefer to be grown at lower temperatures than their hot house cousins.

It is critical that vegetables in the garden receive a minimum of 6 hours of sunlight per day.
