From carrots and spuds to more exotic selections, bypass the supermarket and get the best veg delivered to your door

A rainbow of natural lovelies on offer here. Luxury boxes, standard, big, mini, Mediterranean and also a juice pack and salad bag. Top notch taste-wise.
2. Hello Fresh
£39 (serves two per night), hellofresh.co.uk
More like a weekly groceries service. The pack is mainly fruit and veg but supplemented with meat, pasta and bread and the like.
From £10.35, riverford.co.uk
A family-run company with five farms around England delivering local veg to local folk, by a veg man/lady – not a courier – so they're happy to chat.
From £10, damhead.co.uk
The big family boxes on offer here are the real draw. Salad boxes, too, are good quality, though not exotic – think lettuce, tomato and the like.

8 Graig Farm

10. Abel & Cole
