…how does your garden grow?

Here are some pics from my garden, all items grown from Sow ‘n Sow seed of course! The marigolds have taken over our veggie patch and have been in full bloom since December. The oregano is lovely and bushy and a bunch of healthy new seedlings appeared recently. We have a few small sunflowers (they don’t quite get enough sun in our south facing patch) and a lovely young chilli!





We have a new sunflower seed variety called ‘Sunbird’ and I was testing the germination, it is gorgeous with much bigger leaves than the last variety, so far at least!

It has been a busy start to the year for Sow ‘n Sow and we have spent the last few weeks doing a lot of organising and setting up new systems. We’re also busy as always working away on custom Gifts of Seeds, tailoring our boutique seed packet design for both corporate promotions and very special events, a dear friend’s wedding included. We can’t wait to share the results of them all with you and we will once the events have been held.

Next week we will again be exhibiting at Life Instyle, the boutique trade event for home, lifestyle and giftware.  We will be at stand F03 in the First Instyle section alongside other new labels. Both Maddie and I will be there again so if you are thinking of coming in, we would love to meet/ see you!

And finally we will soon be launching a new, occasional Gift of Seeds, watch this space!
