Wild flower seed gift sets from Seed Pantry.

Just in time for Christmas, Seed Pantry has launched three delightful newwild flower seed growing kits, perfect for budding growers and green-fingered friends.

Mum and Me Flowers and Veg Starter Pack

The perfect present for Mums and their little one, the Mum and Me Flowers and Veg Seed Starter Pack is a great way to get the whole family involved in growing wild flowers, veg, herbs and salads.

The Mum Pack contains seeds to grow five different types of wild flowers: field poppies, yarrow, musk mallow, chamomile and wallflowers. The seeds grow into some of Britain’s wonderful native flora in your own outdoor space and are especially attractive to bees, butterflies, hoverflies, beetles and other wildlife, thanks to their vibrant colours. Wildflowers make great companion plants too, for vegetables and fruit trees and can be grown in even the smallest of spaces, giving Mum a real joy over the summer season.

The Me Seeds Pack lets younger gardeners grow four varieties of vegetables and herbs – sweetcorn, cress, pumpkins and sunflowers.

The whole kit contains all the equipment you need to get started, including bio-degradable rice husk pots, coir seed trays, organic compost (3L bag), and an FSC oak dibblet.

The Mum and Me packs arrive in stylish Seed Pantry gift boxes, made using recycled packaging and printed with vegetable inks, including easy-to-follow illustrated instructions and a handy notes pencil for Mum.

The carefully selected seed varieties grow well in pots, containers, the garden veg patch or flowerbed in sheltered, bright positions and can be planted indoors from March to July.

Priced at £40 including delivery the Mum and Me Flowers and Veg pack is a great Christmas present idea for those new to gardening and experienced growers alike.

Announcing our first Grower of the Month!

We are delighted to introduce you to our first Seed Pantry Grower of the Month! Steve Harrison from Barlow, near Selby, enjoys growing his own with his three-year old grandson, Jack.

They love going down to the veg garden together and tending to the plants, sowing seeds and, of course, collecting the harvests. He grows three varieties of tomatoes, which have all been picked and added to salads and family meals, as well as peas, carrots, onions, pumpkins and chillies. They have also grown some delicious fruits – raspberries, blackcurrants, grapes, apples, pears – and lots of salad leaves, lettuces, herbs and even olives!

Here are some photos to show some of his harvests this year.

Steve (and little Jack!) – congratulations on being chosen as our Grower of the Month! Keep up the good work and let us know what you are growing next!

Entries are still open for our next grower of the month slot, so if you’d like to feature on our newsletter with a short story about how you got into growing your own, then send your details to info@seedpantry.co.uk along with a photo of some of your home-grown veg, salads and herbs and we’d love to feature you!
