Frequently asked questions
Is it hard to grow veg and herbs?

Some are hard, some are easy. But we don't think growing-your-own should be stressful, it's what we build our service around. We choose types of seed that are pretty low effort to grow, but still give a solid return and taste bang tidy. Plus we're good at hand holding: teaching you what to do, when to do it and how to fix things if they go wrong. We got you.

What sort of space do I need?

A small amount of indoor and outdoor space that gets decent light. By indoor space, we mean windowsills or surfaces that get good sunlight, and by outdoor space, we mean patios and balconies.

Do the seeds change each month?

Yes. The seeds we send out are seasonal - they depend on what grows well at the time of year. We'll keep our page updated with what's currently being sent out.

In spring it's tomatoes, chillis and massive variety salad leaves.
In summer it's beans, herbs, radishes and more salad leaves.
In autumn it's peas, beans, spring onions and even more salad leaves.
Then in winter it's garlics, broad beans, cress, sprouting seeds and some of the really tough salad leaves.

Do I put the pots inside or out?

Mostly outside but some stay in. We tend to do herbs inside, like basil and parsley. Then we start some of the more delicate ones off inside too, like tomatoes and chillies, before moving them out when they're a bit stronger. Everything else is good on patios and balconies.

How long will my seeds take to grow?

It varies. Some only take a few weeks until they're ready to eat, some take a few months (but are well worth it). Generally we try to send things that grow fairly speedily though.

They last for different lengths too. Some are very seasonal and don't last through the winter. Others are much tougher and can last for most of the year.

Is your compost peat-free?

You bet. We use coconut compost made of fibres from their shells. They'd go in landfill if they weren't repurposed, so they're a winner all round.
