Where do I buy seeds?

Where do I buy seeds from?

I buy seeds from Suttons through my allotment group as we get a code that gives us 40% discount. See their page about discounts for groups – Suttons Seeds Discount for allotments and gardening groups

I have bought seeds from – back in September 2014 I bought one of their September Sowing packs. This included Raab Quarantina which I hadn’t seen anywhere else. Lovely fast delivery – they arrived the next day. Small packets of seeds, with instructions inside zip lock bags so you can reseal them easily and not lose any. Nice way of doing things when you don’t want hundreds of seeds left over.

I have also got seeds from in their sale. Went a bit mad and spent over £10! Seeds from 19p though so I got an enormous package when they arrived. Delivery was a bit slow but as it was that time of year when you can’t sow anything then it didn’t really matter. I ordered at the beginning of the sale and delivery took a week. It seems that a friend who ordered a day or so after me had to wait much longer for delivery.

And if you’d like to see my stash of seeds then here’s a quick video
