Interested in adding to your garden this Summer but can’t or don’t want to venture out to he busy garden centres? Sit back at home and order online with Seed Pantry instead!
Seed Pantry organise a monthly ‘Grow Club‘ where you can select the Discovery Box (6 items) or the Food & Flower Box (10 items). Both of these boxes is that you can fully customise it yourself by choosing what you’d like to receive from a wide selection on their website. The range is huge and is based on seasonal choices so everything that you’re sent is ready for you to plant ASAP. If you’d prefer a surprise selection, simply sit back and let Seed Pantry choose for you – the choice is up to you. You can:-
- Make choices anytime from the 1st to 17th. Cut off date is the 17th of each month.
- Boxes are sent out from the 12th to the 20th of each month and take 2 days to arrive.
- You’ll receive a reminder email each month to make box choices if you wish to do this.
Curious to find out more? Here’s what I chose for my June box which comes complete with growing instructions:-
Gladiolis – Cayenne and Black Jack
Gladiolis grow well in my garden so I decided to choose two varieties that Seed Pantry stock. I chose Cayenne for its beautiful deep burgundy colour and Black Jack for their red and black extra-large flowers which really are a statement! They prefer full sun or part shade and need to be watered regularly if you want to plant them in containers.
Anemone Mount Everest & Bee-Friendly Flower Seeds
Next, I chose some Anemone in Mount Everest – these have snow-white flowers with pretty lightly ruffled edges for a softer touch. They’re perfect for pots, containers, borders and of course flower gardens, and they prefer full sun or part shade. I also chose some Bee-Friendly Flower Seeds to help attract more of our hugely important pollinators to our gardens.
My last two choices for the box were from Seed Pantry’s excellent Food Seeds range. I chose Sweetcorn (Zea Mays Earlibird) and Green Bean (Blue Lake) to make a start in my vegetable patch! I also found the growing instructions that came in the box to be very useful and great for beginners.
