What does organic mean?

Organic guarantees sustainability from start to finish, without the use of any artificial chemicals. Rather than relying on man-made fertilisers and pesticides, organic products are more environmentally positive and use natural methods such as manures and crop rotation.

How are our seeds organic?

Our seeds are organically produced because the parent plants, where the seed was harvested from, have been sown, grown, and maintained in an organic, chemical-free, way. Simply put, organic seeds are harvested from organic plants!

How can we ensure our seeds are organic?

All of our organic seed is certified and guaranteed by the Soil Association, to ensure that it is grown in an environmentally-aware way!

What are the benefits of organic seeds for gardeners and the environment?

One of the most important benefits of organic seeds are how beneficial they are for the environment! As the seeds have been produced in an organic way, they will have had no chemicals applied during the growing process. Growing in an organic way is also beneficial for biodiversity, helping insects and improving soil. When you choose to buy organic seeds, you can rest assured that the seeds have had a positive impact on the environment before reaching your garden!
