Mr Fothergill’s introduces new Cucumber Swing F1 for the Year of the Cucumber

Supporting Fleuroselect’s Year of the Cucumber, Mr Fothergill’s has added a new variety to its existing selection. Cucumber Swing F1 (RRP £2.55 for 5 seeds) is a great cucumber with all female flowers for outdoor or greenhouse growing.  Fruits are 20cm long, have dark green shiny skin with a juicy flesh. Slightly spined, resistant to powdery mildew and grows well in unfavourable weather conditions.

An exciting dwarf Dill Nano (RRP £2.15 for 200 seeds) is a perfect candidate for gardens with limited space, but also great for kitchen windowsills so it is reachable when cooking. It produces compact plants with deliciously aromatic leaves. Surplus can be dried or frozen.

For the brave only, scorching hot Pepper (Hot) Devil’s Brew (RRP £2.55 for 30 seeds). It is a bushy variety producing a traffic-light mix of yellow, green and red peppers. A standard cayenne-type chilli, thin, pointed fruits about 8cm long and only 9mm wide. They start green and ripen to a beautiful eye-catching shade of red Damian, orange Kilian and yellow Kristian. Very good for Asian style cooking.

New and exclusive to Mr Fothergill’s, Viola Network Improved (RRP £2.40 for 125 seeds) has striking yellow flowers marked with a bold network of fine lines which gives a truly unique effect.  These robust plants are great additions for an eye-catching front of borders and patio containers.
