I have reached out to T&M's Public Relations to find out, if the above were new for the 2022 season or are also NEW above the 10 listed on pages 22 & 23 for 2023? 

I do like to trial a number of new varieties each year, along with some more traditional heritage varieties that I know will provide me with good food for my family, friends and Neighbours.  

Currently I'm gathering information from Thompson & Morgan, Suttons, Dobies, D.T.Brown and Mr Fothergills & Marshalls to research what I will be selecting to trial in 2023. 

As always there are a few new items that one company has that another had last year or in previous years like the Crimson Crush F1 tomato which for me has been a standard since I was sent a trial plant in 2015 the year before the seeds became commercially available for all.
