Here at The Average Cabbage we grow a wide variety of vegetable, salad & herb plants from organic seed in low peat compost. No chemicals or pesticides touch our seedlings and all our produce is grown on our smallholding within The Forest of Bowland.
Our belief is giving our plants the best possible start allowing them to do what they do best; to provide you with healthy wholesome food the way that nature intended.
We also understand the satisfaction of growing your own produce is second to none so whether you are a new starter, enthusiast or allotmenteer our seasonally base young plants will suit all plot sizes. Our seedlings are grown in 1 litre pots or 6 cell trays depending upon the variety making your quantity selection an easier choice. Each pot will have several seedlings in whilst the trays contain between 6 - 18 seedlings dependant upon the variety.
Below will give you some idea about the type of plants we are growing this year. As ever it is dependant upon the weather up here in the North and general growth rates of the seedlings.
