Yes seed sowing season is finally here

No matter your skill level or space, you can grow some of you own veg. We have a wide range of veg seeds in stock from Franchi seeds of Italy and Sutton seeds. If your are a beginner, Lettuces and Radishes are a great place to start. They are easy to grow, quick to harvest and do not take up much space. If you are little more advanced and have a patio or even a balcony, Tomatoes and Courgettes might be ideal.


‘We specialise in Italy from the Seed to the plate being the importers for the Franchi seed brand, the oldest family run seed company in the world but we are passionate about the provenance and regionality of everything we sell. We were found to be the most ethical major packet seed brand by Ethical Consumer Magazine and we are also Vegetarian Society approved and Slow Food UK and at Seeds of Italy we have a 5* Food Safety Rating.’

Franchi is one our favorite seed suppliers here at The Secret Garden Centre. We stock over 60 different varieties of their veg seeds. Sadly they could be gravely effected by Brexit. So lets all do our bit to help out. Choose Franchi when ever possible!
