Hi folks we are having a technological meltdown at Incredible Vegetables HQ, our new site was finally online but now we have a whole set of new gremlins so site will have to have more maintenance. So sorry about this, normal service will resume soon, thanks for sticking with us!

High hopes for these little seedlings of Dystaenia takesimana, a Korean perennial celery originally from Ulleongdo Island. Also known as seombadi, wild celery. One of our projects alongside Ashitaba (Angelica keiskei) Ligularia fischeri, Aster scaber and skirret.

The skirrets are flowering, I’m growing these for a seed crop to be harvested a bit later in the year.

Really important for the planet & humanity to utilise more plants, and spread the knowledge 20,000 edible plants in the world, but 6 contribute 60% of our food supply! That’s not sustainable....

I’m growing and researching as many as I can, saving seed and amassing a botanical reserve of these important edible plants

Rudbeckia laciniata, oh how I have waited for you to show your face ( but really I’m excited about eating you next spring) young leaves and stems can be picked known as Sochan in Cherokee cuisine. Beautiful and edible.

Hi folks, putting the last few touches together on the new website and I will be back online again shortly. I’ve needed a small breather after an insane few months of selling plants, but have lots more waiting in the wings when my online shop re- opens.

Portuguese bush cabbage...after its yearly attempt to flower itself into oblivion, a bit of pruning has encouraged this lovely purple specimen into another year on planet earth. I’ve managed to get a couple of cuttings rooted just in case as this is a particularly beautiful one.

Merritt perennial tree collard, this is an interesting one, leaves are supposed to get to 2ft in length. If you cut it back each year you get a flourish of new growth, even after flowering it just carries on, my kinda plant!

Get them from really easy to save your own seed too as long as you grow one type of luffa at a time

I produced enough luffas last year from three plants to keep me supplied in washing up scourers for about two years, each one was cut into three and lasts such a long time, it’s such a great feeling to be able to compost them afterwards as well

I cut through a large ashitaba stem today, the amount of bright yellow sap was amazing! Pure medicine

Pricking out these Aster scaber (chwinamul) seedlings today, a fragrant perennial Korean leaf vegetable. Along with the Ligularia fischeri, this is one that I have been trying to germinate for quite a few years. A fresh batch of seed has sprouted into life and I now have my wish!
