Time To Buy Your Seeds – Sutton Seeds Review

If you follow this blog regularly then you will know that we have an allotment that we share with my sister in law. This year will be our second year of growing and I can’t wait until the weather gets a bit warmer so we can start planting seeds ready for the Summer months.

We have had a whole load of horse manure put onto the beds in January to help the vegetables to grow.

I didn’t manage to get down to the allotment as much as I would have liked to last year (a combination of moving home, boating season and work prevented it). This year however I vow to do better! The kids really enjoy going to the allotment and it’s lovely to see them getting involved.

Sutton Seeds

Sutton SeedsThis year I have got all of our seeds from Sutton Seeds. 

‘With over 200 years of gardening knowledge and expertise, Suttons Seeds have built an enviable reputation for quality products which guarantees you get the most from your garden.’

They had a huge variety to chose from on their website. The website is really easy to navigate too. I ordered all of the usual items and also opted for a few new things that we didn’t grow last year just to test them out and add a bit of variety to what we eat.

Here is what I ordered…

  •  Runner Beans
  • Rainbow Carrots
  • Courgettes
  • Organic Cucumber
  • Leeks
  • Mini Sweet Corn
  • Swiss Chard
  • Purple Sprouting Broccoli
  • Onions (Red & White)
  • All Year Round Lettuce
  • Nasturtiums

The delivery was very quick and came all neatly packed in one box. There were lots of extra things that I wanted to order but I didn’t want to go over the top.

Grow your Own Veg

According to my very handy Grow Your Own Veg app we need to sow our beans and leeks outside this month and harvest our leeks and parsnips from last years crop. We also need to sow our carrots ,lettuce and tomatoes inside the greenhouse. March is when it’s all going on and lots of seeds/plants will need to go in the ground including the carrots, lettuce, onions, potatoes (1st earlies) and the potatoes (2nd earlies).

I can’t wait until the Summer when everything is growing again.

  1. Oh you are way ahead of us here in Michigan, It’s exciting to get started and picking out your seeds. I actually bought two packets of seeds yesterday snow peas and lettuce. Although we don’t have that brand Sutton sounds like a good one.

    1. It is fun picking out all the things that you are going to grow. Hoping I will have more time this year to put in some more effort with the allotment. Do you have an allotment Vickie or do you grow in your garden?

  2. Sounds like you will have some tasty meals, come harvest time. Years ago when the house we lived had a garden the size of a postage stamp, we rented a plot on the local allotments. It was so much fun, especially swapping different produce with other allotment growers. Although we now have a good-size garden, I do miss the fun of an allotment #triedtested
