Managing director of Kings Seeds, Gerard Martin, says the new book features an exciting range, from microgreens, and vegetables, to ﬂowers, fruit, herbs, organics and more – with some varieties available in New Zealand for the ﬁrst time. “This season’s seed range will set gardens ablaze with both colour and character,” he says. “We received great feedback throughout the year from our customers and it’s inspired us to continue to introduce new and distinctive varieties.” Although he says it’s tough to choose favourites, Gerard believes the following varieties are expected to draw plenty of attention: New ﬂower varieties Designed to brighten the spring/summer garden, Marigold Chameleon is true to its name, with each plant displaying single, semi- double and crested blooms in varying blends of yellow, gold, orange and red. The Morning Glory Hazelwood Blues offers a mix of eye-catching shades from sky blue to deep violet (each morning new blooms appear to replace the spent ones of yesterday) and the Morning Glory La Vie en Rose variety offers shades from blush pink to darkest red. Goji Berry (Wolfberry) Available exclusively from Kings, seeds of this super food produce nutritious berries packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Originating in China, these versatile bright orange/red fruits are traditionally dried and eaten as snacks, made into fruit juices or used in muesli, soups or casseroles. Gourmet microgreens Adding colour, texture, taste and elegance to many dishes, Kings Seeds new microgreen range includes the Mustard Coloured Frills variety, ﬂavoursome blend of feathered and frilled mild mustards for micro harvest. Gerard suggests using these greens as garnishes, in sandwiches, fresh salads, or quickly stir-fried with snow peas. Vegetables Flower Sprouts Kaleidoscope, bred by crossing kale and Brussels sprouts are expected to be favoured by veggie growers and ﬂower fanciers alike, thanks to colourful ﬂowers or rosettes on stalks of tall upright plants – similar to Brussels – and with a taste and texture reminiscent of kale. When lightly cooked the sprouts retain their green, purple and bicolour colour mix.
