Norfolk nursery cooks up a tasty way to celebrate for green and yellow-fingered Canaries fans

Lifelong Canaries fan Philip Pitkethly and his wife Annette are busy planting up trays of mixed baby courgette plants that will deliver a mix of green and yellow vegetables.

“They’ll add a celebration splash of colour to supporters’ gardens – and they’ll look great on the plate right around the time the new season kicks off in August,” laughed Philip. “Maybe we could persuade Delia to come up with a special recipe.....”

Philip and Annette have run Eastern Plant Supplies from their Riverview Nurseries at Costessey for 22 years, supplying flower and vegetable plants to the wholesale trade.

“We’ll be offering the special promotion plants to garden centres across the county,” said Philip. “Actually we have a lot of customers in Suffolk and Essex too – although to be honest we are not expecting a big take-up in the Ipswich area.”
