LHG launches seed subscription for allotment holders

November 20, 2012 News, Seeds No Comments

London Herb Garden is a new business committed to ensuring that gardeners and allotment owners are able to try out the best herb and vegetable seed as easily as possible.

We asked Hannah Flynn, who heads up the London-based company, what inspired her to start her business

‘As a keen gardener myself I decided to develop the idea for a herb and vegetable seed subscription service when I noticed no similar product was available on the market.

‘There have been many subscription services launched over the past couple of years, so why not one for gardeners?’

 The company now provides subscriptions and seed packs that contain both traditional and heirloom seeds, as well as unusual seeds, so even the most seasoned gardener can try out something new.

Hannah said ‘We are committed to improving the richness and diversity of British kitchen gardens, a lot of research has been put into discovering varieties that are able to put up with the harsh variation in the British climate, while providing plants that the whole family will actually want to eat! ‘

The seed subscriptions are available via LHG’s online shop  and allow subscribers to get a packet of herb or vegetable seed through their letterbox once a month. All seed sent will be ready to plant that month, and subscriptions are available all-year round including the winter months.

Hannah told us ‘London Herb Garden is particularly committed to increasing the yield of British kitchen gardens by introducing gardeners to seeds that can be grown in the colder months, thus increasing the growing season.

‘That’s why we have recently launched the winter kitchen garden seed pack, which includes aquadulche broad beans, hanakan pak choi and valdor lettuce which can all be grown outdoors in the winter, as well as a chilli to start off under glass alongside some thai basil, which will grow happily on a windowsill, complimenting your vegetable supply through the winter months. ‘

The presentation is delightful and would certainly make a very welcome gift for a friend or family member who appreciates something quite unique.
