Kitchen Garden Cloche

  • Salad anyone?

    We have returned back to a very grey and rainy England with not much hope for our little shoots after slight neglect for a week. However, we were greeted with huge shoots bursting to get out of their Rootrainers!  Seems like time to get the husband out building the Haxnicks Raised Bed with it’s very handy Raised Bed Polythene Cover to keep those courgettes, cucumbers and tomatoes growing upwards and outwards into something edible for my plate.

    Most of all, the joy of this Raised Bed is that you construct and locate it wherever you wish, so for convenience it is sitting right outside our kitchen garden door.  As much as I love my garden who wants to traipse to the end of it to pick their veggies!  We have added a variety of herbs too - why not!

    Pull back the polythene cover for easiy watering and as you can see we have a little bed of very healthy young plants which we hope to harvest sometime in July.  We will be back in July with an update!

  • Growing Strawberries with Pippa Greenwood and a Kitchen Garden Cloche

    Haxnicks Garden Products in the PressPippa's done it again and we can't thank her enough... in her segment 'Pippa's Growing Tips' in Gardeners World Magazine there's a lovely photo not of Madeleine Cardozo (author of Down to Earth) this time, but of Pippa herself with a Haxnicks Kitchen Garden Cloche.

    Now we're not saying this is the only possible cloche available to help protect young fruit and vegetable plants in the garden, but it is convenient with an elegant handle.  Also Pippa does note that Fleece or Cloches can be used and we assume that to mean Tunnels - of which we have plenty!

    We recommend you visit Pippa Greenwood's website for dozens of tips and tricks about grow your own veg.  Her Books, Blog, Articles and even the Ask Pippa service are all listed here - please do take a look - http://www.pippagreenwood.com.

    Recently Haxnicks have had some excellent coverage in the press and we hope you the customers are able to get the results you want, we're always delighted to hear your successes and failures (not too many we hope).

    Haxnicks Garden Products in the Press

    Helen Riches, Lila Das Gupta and long term friend of Haxnicks Pippa Greenwood can all be seen in the BBC's foremost gardening publication using Haxnicks products.

    Helen Riches, award winning garden writer and garden designer, recommended covering with a cloche overnight to give germinating seeds a better chance in her article entitled 'Summer Pots from Seed'.  Lila Das Gupta also wrote an article about sowing Runner Beans and the benefits of using Rootrainers.

    Pippa Greenwood meanwhile chose to recommend our Kitchen Garden Cloche for her article on protecting small groups of fruit and vegetables in their early stages and to extend their growing season.  And scattered throughout as always, our Biodegradable Pots Naturally range.
