Purchase your garden ready plugs here at Dobies in packs of 12 and start growing your own tiger nuts today.

Tiger nuts are an easy to grow grass that produces masses of intensely sweet tubers (not actual ‘nuts’). They are bigger than peanuts, tasting like almonds and coconut. They are easiest grown in a container.

When you receive your plants, just pot them up into a container that is 10-12" large. Use a good quality compost and put some gravel at the bottom for good drainage.

Keep the plants watered and feed with seaweed. Move your pots outside after the last frost and keep them in a sunny spot, alternatively they can be grown in a greenhouse or tunnel.

The nuts are ready to harvest when the grass dies back naturally in the late autumn. Turn your pot upside down and shake off all the soil, then wash them thoroughly before eating.

You can use the nuts fresh or dry them for later use.

They can be chopped and added to any dish, they are great for smoothies or to make nut milk and nut butters.

You can rehydrate them by soaking them for 24 hours.

Perfect to use as a nut-free peanut alternative.

Heralded as a super food, tiger nuts are a natural source of pre-biotics, for the digestive system, promoting the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestines.

They're packed full of fibre and other nutrients, being rich in Vitamin C, Iron, Zinc, Copper, Potassium, and Magnesium, that can boost metabolism and help stave off infection.

They also contain high levels of vitamin E, which is known to slow down the ageing of the body cells. It also supports the elasticity of the skin and reduces skin wrinkles.

 Tiger nuts also contain low density lipoprotein-cholesterolor, a type of starch which resists digestion. This helps keep us feeling fuller for longer, and also reduces the amount of calories we absorb from the food. Plus, they are low in calories and fats, thus they can help as an aid to weight loss, and help to satisfy hunger.

So, Tiger Nuts have all the nutrients and energy benefits of nuts, but being gluten and nut free, they do not adversely affect allergies.

An easy to grow grass they will tolerate many adverse soil conditions including periods of drought and flooding and survive soil temperatures around −5 °C (23 °F).

However, they are best contained in a tub due to a very vigorous habit. The rhizomes produce masses of intently sweet tubers that are bigger than peanuts, and taste of almonds and coconut. They can be eaten straight out of the ground, once washed of course!

Cultivated for over 4,000 years and much favoured by the Egyptians, ‘Tiger Nuts’ as they are known, are meeting the growing demand for healthy snacks that can easily be grown in a container at home.

Once popular in the 50ies era of post war rationing, they were seen as a treat for children, bought at the local sweet shop.
