100% satisfaction guarantee

This super saver collection consists of 3 x 9cm potted plants, 1 plant each of the following varieties:

Carmen F1 - An indoor variety with superb resistance to powdery mildew and scab, Carmen is often the choice of top exhibition growers. It’s an outstanding all-female strain and produces an abundance of straight, dark green fruits which can grow up to 40cm/16in long. Very hungry, it will thrive when grown in very rich soil. Notably cold-tolerant too.

Marketmore 76 - A great choice for outdoor cropping, where it will produce plenty of 20cm/8in long, dark green-skinned straight fruits with a mildly sweet flavour. The plants show some resistance to powdery and downy mildews. One of the most popular varieties of cucumber.

Socrates F1
- Mini-cucumbers are great for smaller households. A vigorous, high yielding all-female strain for the greenhouse or polytunnel. Very good flavour.

Our 9cm Potted Vegetable Plants

Over recent seasons we’ve switched several of our veg varieties from smaller plug plants to 9cm potted plants and had nothing but positive feedback. These larger plants are more vigorous with large, robust root systems and they travel better and establish more quickly than plug plants.

Poorly packaged

On the good side, the cucumber plants were received quickly after despatch, and they were all healthy looking specimens. On the not-so-good side, the plants were received in a very dishevelled state. Two of them had become totally dislodged from the pots and were just in their original plug state. Compost was all loose in the box, presumably from having been handled in a less than careful manner by the courier. None of this would have been so bad had the pots been wrapped in a way to contain the compost during transit, e.g. in a plastic bag. To compound the issue (with the 3 different varieties), all the labels were loose in the box thereby presenting me with a conundrum as to which one each plant was. Time will tell as to whether I have selected the correct one for planting outdoors.
