Seeds – new for 2017

I hope that all our members have had a happy and peaceful Christmas-time and you are looking forward to the New Year. Now is a great time to be planning your seed-buying for next season, so I wanted to let you know that the Trading Hut will be stocking up for 2017 in January.

We’ll be buying in from Franchi Seeds and Kings Seeds as usual to ensure that we have as wide a variety as possible: all the old favourites and standards that we know will grow well in our soil, plus some new and interesting varieties for the more adventurous of you to try out. Our prices should be substantially below that charged in conventional retail outlets and also below online prices, so do please check in at the Trading Hut as your first port of call.

We can also fulfil personal requests: so if there is any particular variety that you like us to stock from either the Franchi or Kings ranges, please let me know, by January 8th, and I will add it to the order. You can browse the varieties available for Franchi Seeds at and for Kings Seeds at

Also, this seems like a good time to remind you that the new season seed potatoes will be in stock in the Trading Hut at the end of January, along with spring-sowing onions and shallots.
