I really enjoy receiving exciting packages through the post and not many things will make me as excited as a beautifully presented and packaged delivery of seeds. I was sent these seeds to review and I have not paid for them. My words and opinions are as ever my own.Rose Press Garden contacted me to see if I would like to receive one of her seed boxes as she is launching a subscription service. The monthly subscription gives you five packets of seeds beautifully wrapped in recyclable and/or compostable materials. The seeds are a mix of annuals and perennials so you can sow all year.
The seeds I received were: Poppy 'Amazing Grey, Nemesia Masquerade, Cosmos Hummingbird Lilac, Nemopila Five Spot and White Scabious. Three of these are new to me and I probably would never have bought which is not a bad thing. This means I will have exciting plants I had not expected in my garden this year and I love the thought of this.
I have become quite a fan of subscription services, it is a good way of receiving something new and interesting that I know I am most likely going to like most of what I recieve. Of course you may receive a packet of seeds you do not like but you can gift them to a friend, there is no need to waste them. Plus, and I think this is a big plus, £1 from all subscription boxes sold is donated to Greenfingers charity. The Rose Press Garden donates £1 from every order from her website to Greenfingers which is a great thing to do.
The monthly subscription costs £15 per month. You can cancel your subscription or skip a month at any time so you remain in control.
I am happy to encourage you to wander over to Lizzie's website where she also sells seed collections you can buy without subscription and you can buy individual seed packets too. We can never have too many seeds can we?
Stay safe and be kind
