We know a lot of folk are grow-your-own beginners, or would like to encourage others to get involved. To keep things simple, affordable and environmentally friendly, we've decided to create complete kits to get you started!

 

This one includes all the equipment you need to start growing cherry tomatoes.

 

A single kit will help you start five tomato plants - perfect for a family, group of schoolchildren or even flatmates wanting to get growing together this summer.

 

We've made sure these kits are completely peat and plastic free.

 

This starter kit includes the following items:

 

  • Packet of 15 organic cherry tomato seeds

  • Five biodegradable starter pots

  • 20 peat-free coir discs

  • Five wooden seedling markers

  • Small pencil for writing on the markers

  • Five A5 'braw veg' postcards, with full sowing instructions
  • Free UK shipping
  • 10% goes into our 'good causes' seed giveaway fund

 

Organic cherry tomato seeds (variety: 'Koralik')

 

Well suited to container growing on a windowsill or in a greenhouse, this early bush variety produces an excellent crop of bright red cherry tomatoes. It's blight resistant, and does well even in short or wet seasons. Find out more.

 

Biodegradable starter pots

 

These pots are 8cm tall x 8cm diameter at the rim. They are made of biodegradable wood pulp, are peat-free and are a great, environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic pots.

 

Biodegradable pots also make it really simple to transplant your seedlings into larger pots as they grow. You can either tear the pot open to remove the seedling, or put the whole thing into the new soil, and let the seedling's roots grow right through the pot.

 

Peat-free coir discs

 

These discs are made from dehydrated coconut fibre. They are peat-free and make a good, environmentally-friendly starter 'compost' for vegetable seeds.

 

Each disc will expand rapidly when water is added - and four discs will make enough compost for one starter pot.

 

Wooden seedling markers

 

These biodegradable wooden markers are 15cm long x 2cm wide. They can easily be written on with a pencil (included) or marker pen, so you can note down whose seedling is whose!

 

'Braw veg' postcards

 

This fun, exclusive design has been created using original artwork by digital illustrator Lisa Markle.

 

Full tomato seed sowing instructions are printed on the back of every postcard - and you'll get five A5 postcards in the kit.

    Our postcards

    All the postcards in our individual gift sets are extra-large, A5 size - that's 21cm x 14.8cm.

    They're printed on uncoated, bright white 380gsm card. That means they're nice and sturdy, and perfect for writing on with any sort of pen.

    Our seeds

    We source all our seeds from a small network of trusted Scottish / UK suppliers.

    We use seed-proof, hand-filled glassine paper seed packets for all our wildflower seeds. Glassine paper is 100% plastic-free, fully recyclable and biodegradable. This approach means we can also avoid the foil-sealed sachets many seed companies use, which are sadly not able to be recycled.

    The clear cello bags we use to protect your items are also plant-based and 100% biodegradable.

  • DELIVERY INFORMATION

    *We offer free shipping on all items*

    Shipping services

    Smaller items are shipped via Royal Mail's standard 1st Class postal service. Larger orders are shipped via Parcelforce, with items fully tracked to their destinations.

    We post your items within 24 hours whenever possible (and always within three working days).

    Shipping destinations

    We currently only sell and ship within the UK. That's because environmental legislation (both in the UK and abroad) makes it quite complicated to send seeds overseas.

    Protecting your items in transit

    Your items will be carefully packaged and fully protected in transit. We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously, and don't use any plastic in our packaging.

    We've replaced parcel tape with brown paper tape, bubble wrap with tissue paper, jiffy bags with cardboard boxes or brown paper, and polystyrene 'peanuts' with GM-free starch-based loose fill, which is 100% biodegradable and compostable.
