Cono Sur wines team up with the Seed Pantry at the Edible Garden Show

Cono Sur organic wines

In line with its green credentials, award-winning Chilean winery Cono Sur is linking up with urban vegetable-growing company Seed Pantry to exhibit at this year’s Edible Garden Show at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire from 18th – 20th March.

I have been kindly asked to go along to the show and blog all about Cono Sur/Seed Pantry’s exhibit, PLUS I am pleased to announce that they have also kindly agreed to let me give away a pair of tickets to the show plus a bottle of their gorgeous wine to one lucky winner, with two runner up prizes of their award-winning organic wine.

Continuing their joint efforts to encourage people to grow, cook and eat their own produce, Cono Sur and Seed Pantry are inviting visitors to their ‘Urban Garden’ stand at the Edible Garden Show, where they will demonstrate innovative ways to grow fruit and vegetables in the smallest of spaces, from window boxes to balconies, using household items such as newspapers and even bikes!

The Edible Garden Show

Visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to taste the delicious, sustainably-produced wines within the award-winning Cono Sur range including the highly-acclaimed Pinot Noir, as well as learn how to plant vegetable seeds, make a plant pot out of old newspaper and find out about how to match their home-grown produce to Cono Sur wines.

Cono Sur is renowned for its sustainable production, becoming the first winery in South America to gain the ISO 14 064 certification, widely regarded as the most reliable measure of efficiency in measuring greenhouse gas emissions. Sustainability is at the heart of Cono Sur’s philosophy and the team goes to great lengths to produce perfect wines with the minimum environmental impact.

Cono Sur and the Seed Pantry’s Urban garden stand will be at the Edible Garden Show from the 18th – 20th March so come along and and join me learning how to eat, cook and drink sustainably!

This year I’ll be growing trays of pea shoots again, using dried peas from the supermarket. It’s super cheap and easy, and you get gourmet pea shoots for pennies!

Hi Liz – thanks, that’s a brilliant idea. I grew peas last year and my little chaps loved eating them straight off the vine. I’ve got some in my cupboard, so will giving it ago this year. :)

I try to re-use anything I buy. For example any squash bottles we have emptied have their bottoms cut off and are placed over tender veggies early in the season to act as cloches. We also reuse any egg boxes we have, either by returning them to our neighbour who can then refill them with eggs for sale, or I have some on the window-ledge housing chitting potatoes.

Thanks Amanda – a woman after my own heart. I think squash bottles as cloches is a great idea, my dad first showed me how to do that when I was little. Have you started chitting your potatoes yet – think I may wait a bit?

Yes, I will do, I love microgreens, I got hooked on them when I was travelling around Australia – they did use to sell them in my local supermarket, but only for a short spell, which is a great shame.

This year we are going to try growing monkey nuts (peanuts) from the left over nuts at Christmas under a homemade window cloche. Fingers crossed we’ll have homegrown nuts for Christmas next year and possible home grown/ homemade peanut butter too! Yummy!

I can honestly say I wouldn’t have thought of growing my own peanuts – which is silly really as when my eldest was little, someone bought him a ‘grow your own’ peanut kit – I say kit, it was a peanut, a bag of soil and a plant pot – all packaged in a funky box…. How many peanuts are you planting, I suspect quite a few if you’re going to make your own peanut butter? Keep me posted!

I grow my runner beans & climbing french beans up stakes shaped as a den for my 6 year old. Not only does it mean that she has somewhere to play/hide but it makes for easy picking too. So much so that she is already making plans for this years design!

I love this idea, what an clever idea to blend food with play in a completely natural way. I bet my little chaps would like this too…
