In My Seed Box For 2023 - Index

To find the information for a particular variety of vegetable being grown for 2023 use the index below. Hyperlinks will be added over the next three months as I catalogue the seeds I already have; and add to the list those I have either bought or new varieties that have been sent to me by seed suppliers to trial and blog about.  

I did manage to get the bulk of the plot 1 infrastructure in place in 2021, consisting of an additional eight 2.4m x 1.2m beds and two number 1.2m x 1.2m square foot gardening beds and an additional 1.8m x 1.2m greenhouse. Over Winter I will be completing the infrastructure works to the end of plot 1 consisting of an additional square foot gardening bed, a bed for the superdome (mini-polytunnel) and the corner greenhouse climbing frame. I'm planning for a much more productive 2023. 

Last year D.T.Brown, and Mr Fothergill's, sent me a number of their new varieties to add to my collection and for growing in 2022 and 2023. There are posts on this blog re all the seeds and products I have received to trial, and I'm hoping these companies will be as generous for 2023, but we will have to wait and see.

Dobies also kindly sent me 14 new varieties of seeds to trial and Suttons sent me 7 new varieties last year. Suttons also provided me with a discount on my two seedless grapevine purchase, one which has grown really well in its first year, however the other got nobbled by a cat or fox and has some catching up to do. 

Nothing from Thompson & Morgan or Marshalls in 2022.  Marshalls no longer believe there is any measurable benefit to providing trial seeds to gardening press and in fact they didn't attend the gardening press event in 2022.
