Seed Pantry a specialist food and flowers subscription box that can be enjoyed by all gardeners, regardless of whether you’re experienced or are just starting out. I’m definitely in the latter category and have only recently started to grow green fingers myself, so I’ve found the box to be rather exciting!
Each month, you can choose from a range of flowers/seeds/bulbs on Seed Pantry‘s website, so you get to ‘build your own box’. The choices available change every month to keep with the seasons so that everything that you receive can be planted and sown straight away.
Here’s what I chose this month to give you an idea of what to expect from the Seed Pantry:-
The first category are all flowers and there’s a great selection this month for Spring Flowers and ones that you can grow indoors. As you can see above, they come with a full set of instructions and there’s more helpful advice and tips on the website.
Flower – Daffodils Papyraceus (3 bulbs)
Daffodils are one of my favourite classic Spring flowers and this variety is known as ‘Paperwhite’ which can be happily grown indoors in containers. They have fragrant heads and are relatively easy to grow – just plant and leave in a cool room to flourish.
Flower – Hyacinth Jan Bos (4 bulbs)
The next flower that I chose are called Hyacinth Jan Bos and these can also be grown indoors. They have a bright cerise head with vibrant green leaves and make stunning displays for the festive season.
Flower – Tulips Apricot Beauty (6 bulbs)
Described as an elegant early Spring flower, this variety of Tulips has pastel orange petals and look simply stunning planted outside in borders or as part of outside container displays.
This month, I also chose a selection of the food options and like the flowers, these also come with growing instructions to show you how easy it is to grow your own food at home.
Food – Spicy Leaf Mix, Broad Beans & Meteor Peas
I picked the Spicy Leaf Mix – a quick growing variety of leaves that pack a spicy and peppery punch to liven up salads throughout Winter; Broad Beans – a hardy early crop that produces tender young beans that are delicious raw or lightly cooked; and Meteor Peas – another early crop that grows well over the Winter months.
