Dear customers,

Thank you all for supporting our small business in these challenging times. Please consider before buying any seeds:

– Most orders are arriving in a couple of days, however some are taking up to three weeks to arrive due to the pressure on the postal system
– We are sending all orders on the next working day by 1st class post. We do not have tracking details of them

Happy gardening,
Fred and Ronja

None of our seed is hybrid or GMO, so you can save your own seed from them too. Indeed, part of our mission is to re-skill gardeners and growers in how to save their own seed. We think that this is such an important skill and that all gardeners and growers should have some knowledge of seed-saving.

On our resources page you can find useful information to do with seed-saving, such as how-to guides and videos, links to other organisations working with seed (e.g. Gaia Foundation and Organic Seed Alliance , and also books and publications. We will be constantly developing this area of the site keep an eye of for more content coming soon.

Our plastic free pledge – we are committed to creating a sustainable food system, and part of that commitment is to avoid single-use plastics. All of our packaging is plastic-free and home-compostable so you can relax in the knowledge that you are not contributing to unnecessary plastic pollution

Seeds to sow in August

Take some time to simply enjoy your garden and hard work you have put into it this month. Continue sowing seeds for winter and the hungry gap in August.  Yes, it’s the peak of summertime, but you have to give the seedlings a strong start as they’ve got some pretty thin months ahead of them. 

Don’t forget winter lettuce such as Valdor, chard, chicory, Florence fennel, coriander, your oriental greens like pak choi, salad rocket, mizuna, purple frills etc. and turnips. Sow winter cabbages like Greyhound that will provide you with greens in a time of year where not much else is around.

By the end of the month you could also start sowing some hardy annual flowers like calendula, nigella, poppy, cornflowers and viola that will start flowering early in the following spring.
