Rob Smith Heritage Veg Seeds and Plants

Rob Smith Heritage Veg Seed Range   

I have a real passion for heritage veg. These are varieties that have stood the test of time and produce amazing crops. They are also what my grandad used to grow, that taste takes me straight back to helping him in the garden as a child. Dobies really understood my passion and enabled me to create the new range of Heritage Veg Seeds and Plants which will excite keen gardeners, old and new. You'll find new varieties here that you'll be hard pushed to find in any other major seed or plant supplier, especially the huge 'Lettuce Leaf Basil' and super sweet 'Honey Boat Squash'

Unlike modern F1 and supermarket veg, Heritage vegetables won’t always produce identical fruits. Due to the fact that the plants have evolved over the decades, you may notice slight differences in the fruit (even on the same plant!). For example, 'Heinz 1370’ may give you some slightly ribbed fruit and smooth fruit on the same plant. There’s nothing wrong with your plant, it’s just the natural variations that are produced. ‘Fish’ chillies may produce one branch (or chilli) that is heavily variegated, while another may be totally green. Again, this is part of the charm of growing Heritage Vegetables, they provide interest from the minute you sow the seed, to the moment you eat them. If you find any particularly interesting examples, we’d love to see them!

This Year Rob smith, the winner of the Big Allotment Challenge 2015, is Joining Dobies.

Rob Says:

Winning BBC2's Big Allotment Challenge was an incredible experience competing against my fellow allotmenteers really did push me and bring out the best of British growing. It showed that producing your own food can be fun and rewarding. I love the fact you can provide for your loved ones, growing fantastic crops at the same time. It was great to grow to show, but deep down i grew for taste, thats why iv'e chosen the varieties that are in the heritage veg range. They look good and taste incredible.
