Some Favourites from the New Range

Written by Karen on June 26th, 2012.      2 comments

It's that time of the year at Kings Seeds when we are getting ready to release our new range for the Spring season.  Our 2012 catalogue is due out mid to late July - we are expecting that it may be slightly delayed this year as we are changing the catalogue numbers for all our products!  We thought that for this week's blog post we would put together a brief pictorial preview of a few new varieties.  If you can't bear to wait until your printed catalogue arrives in your letterbox, you can see and purchase all our new varieties on our website after around the 5th July - keep your fingers crossed for us that the change over to our new numbering system goes smoothly!

So - here is a selection of some of our new varieties .... we thought we would let the photos speak for themselves without too much additional info ....  all will be revealed with the new catalogue....
 

Sunflower Golden Toasted F1

Sounds yummy - and it is - because the large heads produce big edible seeds.

Phlomis Lemon Puffs

Grow this basil in your pots or containers and it will produce a good size leaf.
