Red Dirt Road Garden Shop.

I enjoy pottering around the garden so much that I now have collected a selection of very fresh small batch heirloom seeds to share with you. These seeds below have all been tried and tested by me, are linked to articles where you can see them growing, and are all pretty, unusual and ideally suited for the backyard plant collector and vegetable grower. I hope you enjoy your time in the garden as much as I do- Eimear.

Vegetables

Watermelon "Moon and Stars" - 20 seeds

Citrullus vulgaris

With large fruit growing to 9kg, the skin compares to a starry night, featuring bright yellow flecks and spots. The flesh is red and very sweet. The leaves are attractive in the garden, also featuring the yellow spots. This unusual fruit from the 1920's fell out of favour and nearly became extinct until seedsavers brought it back from the brink in the 1990's. A favourite of mine in the garden.
