    If you're looking for a Christmas gift for a gardener who has a passion for growing vegetables in the garden or allotment then look no further. This selection of four heritage seeds, each of which is a traditional Christmas dinner vegetable, will be sure to go down well.

    The seeds included are:
    - Brussels Sprout 'Fillbasket'
    - Cabbage 'Red Drumhead'
    - Carrot 'James Scarlet Intermediate'
    - Parsnip 'Hollow Crown'

    Each variety can be sown in the spring or early summer and harvested in December.

    Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your Christmas Dinner Veg seeds:

    - The sprouts and cabbage are best sown into a seed bed in early summer. The seed bed should be weed free and raked to a fine tilth. Water the soil, use a dribber or rake to make shallow drills and then firm the soil. Cover with chicken wire or a cloche. When the seedlings have four leaves in late summer, transplant to their final position, cover again with wire and firm the soil well. Brassicas like firm soil, so feel free to walk around the plants.
    - The carrots and parsnips should be sown into their final position in May. Sow thinly into a drill and once the seeds germinate thin to their final spacing.
    - All seeds need water to germinate, so if there is no rain, water every other day.

    Heritage seed enthusiast based in Somerset

    Thomas Etty Esquire was set up by seed enthusiast Ray Warner. After being made redundant by an insurance company in 1999 Ray took heed of his mother's comment that he was born with a packet of seeds in his mouth and set about building a business based on his love of heritage seeds.

    Thomas Etty now offers some 450 heritage seed varieties ranging in date from 1633 to the end of the Second World War, which are hand packed in Somerset by Ray and in Bedfordshire by his son Dan.
