About us

We wanted to change the way people thought about buying seeds.  At the moment they look at a seed catalogue or on line, select a plant that they like , buy the seed and then sow the seeds giving many identical plants. 

Our idea was that customers should get a selection of related but different plants all in one go.  As these would not all be the same, details would be given about each plant and then recipes that would highlight the best parts of each plant or fruit.

Each book contains six small packets of seed that can each be removed from the book and sown using our easy to use growing guides.

All books are printed on paper from sustainable sources.

Wholesale Enquiries

We are always looking for new retailers both online and bricks and mortar as well as wholesalers.  If you would like further information please fill in the contact form below and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
