So we want to share our tried and tested tips and tricks of how best to store your fresh produce and keep it at it’s best!


Keep you rhubarb fresh by wrapping it nice and snug in a damp tea towel and keeping it in the fridge.


Watercress grows in water so the best thing you can do is to mimic it’s natural habitat… Keep your bundles of watercress in a container of fresh, cold water, making sure you plunge the leafy end down into the water - basically the opposite to a bunch of flowers! Store in the fridge and this will keep your watercress uber fresh for 7 to 10 days. Wash with fresh water before eating.


Tomatoes taste better when they’ve been drinking up the sunshine and even after they’ve been picked a comfortably warm climate will keep them at their best, so keep your tomatoes in a nice bowl and pop them on the windowsill until you’re ready to eat them.
