Californian Poppy 'Red Chief'

Eschscholzia californica, California Poppy

 Customer Rating
  • New in 2014
The best red we've seen in a Californian Poppy! We trialled Californian Poppy 'Red Chief' over several years to make sure the flowers maintained their vibrant and rich red colour. Outstanding in our trials, the intensely coloured blooms are produced all summer long above low-growing mounds of feathery blue-green foliage, and are attractive to bees and hoverflies. Performing well in all weathers, this Eschscholzia variety is easy to grow in beds, borders and containers, or let it self-seed throughout gravel gardens to form natural drifts. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 25cm (10").

Carrot 'Atomic Red'

Daucus carota

  • New in 2014
  • Unique colour and flavour

A striking carrot, producing tapering roots up to 25cm (10") long with coral-red skin and flesh. The rich red colour is due to high levels of lycopene, a healthy antioxidant. The colour becomes more intense and the flavour deepens once Carrot 'Atomic Red' is cooked, although it looks equally striking when sliced or grated into salads raw. Harvestable from July through to October, the strong foliage makes this colourful carrot easier to lift. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 15cm (6").


Companion planting: Try growing carrots with spring onions, leeks and mint, whose aromatic leaves deter carrot root fly.
