Growing local

My new seeds have arrived. Radish and Fennel will be planted out today. Of course, I'm silly to have bought fennel seeds as I have plenty as I cook with them all the time. These will be fresher though, with a better chance of germination.

Fantastic company and very reliable germination.

Do write the date you bought on the packet though as it is easy to forget and they do not have used by date on them .

I like the seed collection becuase it's cheap and reasonable amounts (all you usually need) & saves on packaging space.

There you go:I too have the same seeds in play, except the mustard and silverbeet. My spice merchant tells me that spice seeds are grown on selected plants that run to seed quicker and create fuller heads. So they are not quite the same. That's especially true of coriander.

Of note is that The Seed Collection is now only supplying its regular customers as seeds are in short supply as so many folk turn to the soil.
