SHOW PERFECTION HISTORY
Gardeners World on the 30.08.18 was interesting. To put everyone in the picture re. the ‘Robinson Pea’. We used to have a shop in Lancaster which was run by a member of the family. In those days pea seeds were sold loose . It was possible to buy seeds by the pint. One of our customers, who still is a customer, bought what she called some ‘Robinson Peas’. These were in fact what we now call Show Perfection Pea. She sent some peas to the heritage library and this is where many have got them from. The rules for the selling of vegetable seeds have since those days changed dramatically but the name has stuck. The nursery has been on the same site for over 150years but the shop in nearby Lancaster has gone.
