If you’re keen to get a little head start on this years growing, or fancy trying growing some new varieties of pepper this year then what dropped through the letter box this morning may interest you….
We were sent a little package from one of our sites kind sponsors Potter Plants earlier this week. Their business is simple, provide the likes of you and me with great quality, healthy chilli (and tomato) seedlings by post. Established in 2010 they’re a family run business based near Sheffield with a keen interest in using sustainable materials where possible. The plants are grown here in the UK in coco coir plugs, the plastic packs and label are made from recycled materials.
I’ve never received any plants through the post before (only seed) so when we got the email saying they’d been dispatched I was very intrigued to find out how they’d be sent and if they’d still be alive when the got here!
I needn’t have worried. The packaging is not only very sturdy but it also is see through so you (and your postman) can seed the little seedlings inside. I’m sure this will encourage postmen to treat them with even more care. Our postie was most intrigued as he reluctantly handed over the package!
Inside out pack was the following:
- 1 x Peter Penis Pepper
- 1 x Speed Ball
- 1 x Numex Big Jim
- 1 x Chilhaucle Negro
- 1 x Trinidad Scorpion Moruga
Every year I try and grow some new varieties but face the age old problem of buying a packet of seeds then ending up with 20 of each variety, meaning I only usually grow a couple of varieties. These multi packs from potters are a great easy way to experiment with several varieties without having to waste seed or grow hundreds of plants! We’ll definitely be using them in the future.
