Easy  to Grow
We were in a garden center and a couple walked in to buy seeds. Talking with them, it became clear that they were just overwhelmed by the amount of seeds on offer and the technical descriptions on the packets. So they inspired us to launch a range of seeds which are, well, easy to grow and written in plain English with no jargon. You will find a simple 'Question and Answer' format like 'How should I water', 'Where should I plant' and 'How many days for germination'.
