What Are Non-Grafted Veg Plants?

Non-grafted veg plants are standard vegetable plants, which can result in a selection of homegrown vegetables. You can have a garden full of different kinds of vegetables and plenty to add to your homecooked dishes. But with hundreds of varieties to choose from, where do you start? Why not discover our exciting New Vegetable Plants and grow something new 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 which 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, to aubergines and melons.

This process tailors plants to adapt better to growing conditions. In addition, this also 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 Suttons grafted vegetable plants. And, unlike a standard non-grafted plant, this will also produce its fruit much earlier, and for much longer giving you a greater yield!
