I ordered next year’s vegetable seeds over the weekend, and as I only wanted small quantities of a few items I bought them, as I always do, from MoreVeg. For instance I only want to grow a couple of cucumber plants so I ordered the variety Straight Eight four seeds for 50p. As the leaf beet I sowed this year didn’t germinate I’m going to try again with the variety Bright Lights.
The ten packets of seeds came to well under £10 so to take it just over and make it post free I ordered a packet each of sweet peas Frolic and Oban Bay. I received an email on Monday advising me that they’d been dispatched and they arrived on Tuesday. As well as the prompt service and excellent packing this lovely hand written note was included –
Hello…cold and sunny today so I have been in the greenhouse picking the last of the toms under cover in the company of a very brave wren looking to set up it’s winter home…Enjoy, Rachel@MoreVeg.
For small quantities of seeds I highly recommend MoreVeg.
At the horticultural society trading shed we stock a range of flower, green manure and vegetable seeds from Kings Seeds, which we sell to members at little more than half the recommended selling price. Once we’ve restocked in the new year I’ll be buying a few packets of flower seeds.
I always look forward to receiving the Chiltern Seeds catalogue, which for anyone not familiar with it measures 4 by 12 inches, has no pictures and in the 200+ pages lists some 4000 items. On the cover it says…Grow something new from seed and All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today. I always place a small order, which with so much to choose from is never easy.
Have a good weekend!
