Growing our edible plants

We grow edible plants in our own nursery where we can completely control and regulate the growing environment.

We sell our plants across Oxford, and use them in our own designs across the year.

Our growing principles:

  • Chemical free with minimal intrusion.
  • No pesticides, herbicides and insecticides
  • Prioritise heritage and UK varieties
  • Named varieties not hybrid seeds
  • Seed Save where possible
  • Grafting with scion wood (cuttings) from local orchards 
  • Peat free
  • Minimise use of plastic pots
  • Efficient watering to reduce water use
