Spinach 'Perpetual' (Spinach Beet)

Beta vulgaris var. vulgaris

 Customer Rating
  • Traditional cooking spinach
If your summer spinach is always running to seed before you manage to get a worthwhile crop off it, then Spinach Perpetual is the variety for you because it virtually never runs to seed in its first season, therefore very good on dry ground. Spinach Perpetual is succulent, prolific and very hardy, suitable for autumn and winter crops too.

Cabbage 'Hispi' F1 Hybrid (Summer)

Brassica oleracea (Capitata Group)

 Customer Rating
Versatile Summer Cabbage 'Hispi' can be grown at virtually any season of the year and comes to maturity faster than cabbages bred for specific seasons. Even autumn sown, it will beat the earliest of the spring cabbages and a Jan/Feb sowing will also fill the late spring gap in cropping. This RHS AGM variety is a strong and uniform pointed type, with a beautifully sweet flavour. Cabbage 'Hispi' has good bolt resistance and needs little growing space so it is ideal for growing in small gardens where space is at a premium. Height: 40cm (16”). Spread: 60cm (24”).

Companion planting: Try growing cabbages with Nasturtiums to draw cabbage white butterflies away from your crop, and mint to help deter flea beetles.
