peter bauwens

We chanced upon Peter Bauwens and his wife Katherlijne Thiers when we visited Hex a few years ago and we have been entranced by their beautiful, unusual, delicious edible seeds ever since. They are easy to grow, health giving and full of flavour.

We are huge fans of his pale pink ‘Sunset’ runner beans and his Crown peas – both of which have the most exquisite flowers – and his spigariello broccoli kale.

Soil health is central to his garden philosophy. His nursery in Belgium is De Nieuwe Tuin  -  where you can drool over his pictures and buy your seeds.
