But before we discuss the benefits of our grafted veg plants further, let’s talk about the difference between non-grafted and grafted veg plants and work out what’s right for you.
What Are Non-Grafted Veg Plants?
Non-grafted veg plants are standard vegetable plants, which can result in a selection of homegrown vegetables. Your allotment can grow all different kinds of vegetables and give you plenty of variety in your latest homecooked meals. Therefore, with hundreds of varieties to choose from, our New Vegetable Plants is a great place to start and provides something new you can grow today.
What Are Grafted Veg Plants?
Grafted veg plants involve a joining growing method. Our grafting process is a rapid tool that involves taking two plants that are grown simultaneously: a tasty fruiting variety and a super-strong rootstock. The top of a fruiting plant and a strong hardy rootstock are carefully removed by hand using a small blade to slice at an angle across each stem. Then the rootstock bottom and the top of the fruiting plant are then grafted together using a special clip that drops off naturally as the plant grows. Here at Suttons, we provide our Grafted Vegetable Plant Range, which includes tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and melons.
This process tailors plants to adapt better to growing conditions! This means that the new super-strong roots can grow deeper into the soil. They will also absorb all the delicious nutrients to provide you with full-flavoured tasty crops. You can enjoy up to 75% more crops with Dobies grafted veg plants, unlike a standard non-grafted plant. This will also produce its fruit much earlier, and for much longer giving you a greater yield!
