Every year, we trial a number of new seed varieties, in order to see which are worth adding to, or retaining within our ranges in following years. We test these on our own trial ground, but this can only ever indicate how the variety performs in our local area, with its particular soil type and climate. What grows well in the sandy soil of our trial ground on the edge of Suffolk Breckland will doubtless perform very differently in the Scottish Highlands, or in wet, heavy Devon clay.
To help gain additional feedback from growers with differing soil types and in other parts of the country, we supply FREE trial seed with every seed order. We're always keen to hear how these perform, whether it's the best tasting variety you've ever grown, or if it struggles to thrive in a particular soil type. If feedback is particularly positive, we may even be able to produce seed in larger volumes, passing the savings on to our customers!

attractive, low maintenance crop which will reward you with mild tasting,
crunchy stems and succulent leaves well suited to salads and stir fries.

Free Seed Notice
Due to significantly higher than normal volumes of orders and some delays with incoming deliveries, we may occasionally experience interruption in the supply of our free trial seed. Should this prove to be the case, we regret to advise that we have to omit the trial seed from your order, as any other course of action would be likely to result in extended delays for large numbers of orders. Please accept our sincere apologies should your order be affected in this manner.
