Welcome to the Tamar Organics website updated for the 2016 season. Click on the tool bar above to browse the catalogue and order online.
All our seeds, onion sets, shallots, garlic, potatoes and plant materials are organic. We offer a very extensive range of vegetable seeds. You will find some well known varieties and some that you may not be familiar with but which, when you try them, will become firm favourites.
We hope your are harvesting your early veg now. We are picking lettuce, broad beans, radish, beetroot, courgette, cucumbers and digging early potatoes. You can still succession sow lettuce, beetroot, radish, rocket, carrots and spinach. You can also sow kohl rabi, turnips and florence fennel. Transplant your leek and brassica plants if you have not already done so.
Your early potatoes will be ready about 90 days from planting so have a look. It is a good idea to green manure the empty ground once you have harvested. This prevents weed growth and locks in nutrients to dig in for the next crop. (find them in fertilisers and soil conditioners).
We would like to intoduce you to the Joliba Trust with which Tamar Organics now has links. They are a small but active charity based in central Mali where they help to fund agricultural, horticultural and environmental projects. We will be sending leaflets out with orders and invite our customers to make a donation if they wish. You can find out more at www.jolibatrust.org.uk

Tamar Organics started as a small organic market garden in 1994. Our mail order catalogue evolved alongside it as we searched for organic compost, fertiliser and seed. We hope you enjoy browsing the online catalogue.
