We only sell varieties that we know you will love (because we love them!). A core part of our mission is to increase the availability and variety of organic seeds for UK gardeners and growers. In 2019 we are growing 16 popular varieties of which there has previously been no organic seed available.
Fred talks about the satisfaction of seed saving
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
October is a month of harvest festivals and celebrating the abundance (hopefully!) of your patch. Temperatures will continue to fall and it is time to start preparing for winter. It is the end of the growing season.
You can sow broad beans, and round-seeded peas at this time of year to boost your harvest next spring. And there is still time to sow winter lettuces and other salads indoors to be able to continue harvesting fresh greens from the garden in the dark winter months. Hardy annual flowers can be sown in October and will bloom earlier than spring sown seeds.
