With an additional 18 varieties, Johnsons has expanded its organic vegetable offering for the 2019 season. Johnsons Brand Manager Helen Clayton comments “We have seen a definite rise in sales of our organic varieties over the past few years, increasing by 79% since the 2015 season. Topping that list is our Tomato Gardeners Delight organic variety which has risen 169% over the same period. It is also a growing trend across Europe and we believe it will continue as more and more people choose to switch to organic gardening.”
Organic seed of all the most popular vegetable categories are now available in the Johnsons range and all have been approved by Organic Farmers and Growers Ltd, one of the UK’s largest organic control organisations. The extended range is ideal for those gardeners who choose to use organic growing methods, by which the seed is not exposed to any chemicals at growth, harvesting or processing stages. And just like standard seeds, you don’t need a large space to grow organically – a window box or patio pots can be just as productive.
As well as being available within the main Johnsons collections, the organic range is also available to buy from a dedicated stand-alone display. Helen says “With the extended Johnsons range, our customers can now find a comprehensive selection of organic vegetable seed varieties, in one place.”
New varieties added include versatile Chard Verde a Costa Argentata (RRP £2.15 for 125 seeds), nutritious Kale Westland Winter (RRP £1.85 for 40 seeds) and highly productive Climbing French Bean Limka (RRP £3.45 for 50 seeds).
