Exotic crops to grow at home.

EXOTIC crops which love to grow in the British climate will be the focus of a local organic charity's edible patch at BBC Gardeners' World Live this week.

Taro, calaloo and Zimbabwean kale will be on show at the NEC by charity Garden Organic, based at Ryton Gardens.

Their display aims to highlight the work of its project, Sowing New Seeds, which collects unusual and exotic vegetables grown by migrant communities on UK allotments.

Garden Organic's Anton Rosenfeld said: "We're really excited about showcasing the fantastic and unusual exotic veg we've collected through this project." The Exotic Edible Patch will be at BBC Gardeners' World Live at the NEC from today until Sunday.
