Jamie Oliver Homebase range revealed

Jamie Oliver's collaboration with Homebase will feature 47 seeds from Mr Fothergill's and 35 plants, mainly sourced from Belgium.

Homebase's new range will also include barbecues sourced directly from China.

The range should grow to more than 100 products by the end of this year, said Mairi Devlin, who coordinated the putting together of the products for Homebase.

The range also includes 11 seed potato/onion/garlic products and five growbags from Westland.

Oliver's gardener Peter Wrapson has tested the products and Oliver himself has checked every item, said Homebase.

Jamie Oliver said: "Growing your own food is one of life's great pleasures. Even if you've only got space for a few pots on the window sill, you can still grow fresh herbs which will save you money and really add flavour to your food. I hope that Homebase can get more people, young and old, into growing food."
