Hi Gillian, I just wanted to say thanks for the seeds and the extras you put in for us, that was very kind of you. The school garden is very important to us and help we can get in the way of donations is greatly appreciated so thank you for that…
Thanks also for checking out our school garden facebook page, I try and keep it updated as often as I can. Happy gardening and I hope we have a great summer in the garden. Sean

19th February 2019 “That was amazing. My Zinnia seeds arrived (just outside Oxford) this morning; I thought I had only ordered them a moment ago, and it came with some free Love in a Mist! That was lovely, the hand written note foxed me and had me searching through my mind which of my friends had dropped me a line. Fantastic, thankyou. Best wishes Darryl B

Papaver somniferum23rd January 2019 “I ordered a few packets of seeds… they arrived within a matter of days and had simple but quality packaging all very clearly labelled with sufficient growing instructions. The seller wrote a small personal note thanking me for my order with a packet of free poppy seeds to trial which was lovely as I’ve been looking for different poppy varieties to grow a poppy garden. Really nice personal touches to make the customer feel valued. Good price compared to other seed companies and if you by multiple items the shipping covers them all. I have planted some in seed trays already and I expect most of them to germinate.”  Kathryn  Amazon

Dear Gillian, just a quick word to thank you for the seed collection. The gift box was superb and incredibly well presented. The personalised note was much appreciated and I have to say it is very rare these days a supplier goes the extra mile as you have done. We will definitely use you again.”
Kind regards

In the package were my seeds, a lovely card from the company, full instructions on how to sow, plant, cultivate and use as cut flowers. Added to that there was a free pack of Gypsophila seeds to compliment the Daucus seeds. Very impressed indeed.
