  • I bet it doesn't mean cheaper seeds

    One of Britain's oldest mail order plant and seed companies could be about to change hands for up to £200m (msn.com)
    Call me mr cynical, but when companies get taken over by investors, then prices invariably go up.

    If they put their prices up by much, they'll price themselves out of the market. They're already quite expensive. Or used to be. I haven't looked at their website in a while.
    Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

      I must say I don’t care much for them.Overpriced and very questionable quality.

      I had several germination failures from their seed. They didn’t reply to my complaint that I had a germination rate of about 5% of their beetroot. About a year later they admitted on fb that sometimes quality gets sacrificed for quantity.

      Last year they bought Suttons which I bought from several times- seeds and live plants. This year I got my plants- half of them dead and a slug in one packet.Got partial refund after slating them on Trustpilot.

      Very much hit and miss but not worth risking for the price they want.
