What people say

Thank you for all your support and encouragement over the years. They always cheer us up when the temperature drops outside and our fingers are frozen or we are drooping with exhaustion in the spring.

  • We are sorry you did not get good germination from our seeds. This does depend on many factors including keeping the seeds cool enough and using the right type of compost with no fertilizer. We will be in touch with you and hope you will have another try.

  • I had a wonderful display of polyanthus this spring grown from the seeds I had from you last year. The colours are wonderful, much more attractive and interesting that those available from other sources. I have grown several different ones over the years and Desert Sunset and Flamingo are my current favourites.
