For anyone with a sense of fun, or like me have never really grown up, we have put together a novelty pack of "Triffid" seeds, all of these monster plants either grow tall and/or have huge leaves. I have included a mixed packet of each of the following seeds
The two species of Goji berry or Wolfberry grown are Lycium Barbarum and Lycium Chinense, two very closely related species from China. They are perennial plants and will grow to a height of between one and three metres. They require a sunny position and a well drained soil and fairly easy to grow, are self polinating, drought tolerant and are hardy plants. After being introduced into the UK many years ago they have already been seen growing wild in some locations.
The red berries which are small and plum shaped are very high in nutrients with many health claims. In traditional Chinese medicine, goji berries are often made into a tea that is said to work on the liver and other areas of the bodies. In food products, goji berries are often dried and mixed in with the other ingredients Marketers of goji berries have made the following health claims; improves the immune system; improves circulation; reduces inflammation; improves vision including macular degeneration; helps reduce the aging process.

Annual Edible Flowers for Salad Decoration ■☻
Edible flowers can add a really nice touch to summer salads and I have put together here an annual mix for anyone wanting to try them out. Don't forget that most herb flowers are also edible i.e. mint, rosemary sage etc. My own favourite if you have any in the garden are day lilies with a crisp sweet flavour and a slight peppery after taste. (Please note that in for the Clary "flowers" it is actually the colourful leaf bracts in pink or blue that are eaten not the small true flowers)
Our mix includes:-
Calendula officinalis - Pot marigoldChrysanthemum coronarium - Garland ChrysanthemumBorago officinalis - Borage flowersNasturtium Blue Pepe - Nasturtium Basil Genovese Sweet - BasilSalvia horminum Monarch - Clary leaf bractsBean Runner Hestia - Scarlet runner bean flowersCourgette F1 Midnight - Zuchini flowers
