Why grow and eat a rainbow? The dazzling colours of fruit and vegetables are given to them by a range of natural compounds which can be beneficial to health. In fact, research has shown that diets rich in these colourful crops may reduce the risk of a whole range of diseases, from heart disease to cancer. That’s why doctors and dietitians recommend we ‘Eat a Rainbow’. To help you on your way, we have researched hundreds of varieties to find those with the very highest levels of these nutrients.

James Wong has spent 2 years trawling through over 3,000 research papers to learn how to boost the nutrition in selected plants and has written a book called ‘How to Eat better’ which includes practical tips and tricks.

For container growing – sow thinly, direct into compost. For raised beds try sowing in 30cm (12") squares, spacing a few seeds every 15cm (6") 1.3cm (½") deep. Germination 6-12 days. As the seedlings emerge, remove spare seedlings to leave one per ‘station’ (thus you will have finally 4 plants per square). Alternatively sow in rows 30cm (12") apart. Sowing - Cropping: 8-12 weeks.

Ideal for beds and borders.
