Wong's range has eight new introductions including Beetroot 'Red River', Carrot F1 'Night Bird', Carrot F1 'Octavo', Kale 'Black Magic', Lettuce 'Lollo Rossa', Nasturtium 'Gold Jewel', Squash 'Uchiki Kuri' and Tomato 'Red Zebra'.

The new 'Fun to Grow' children's range includes a tape measure for sunflowers, stickers and magnifiers. It includes alien eggs (Nigella), dragon flower, dancing plants (mimosa), caterpillar plant (scorpiurus) and pasta plant (squash) among the 20-strong range.
