2. For the Gardener who would love to get their seed collection in order.

Seed packet Divider/Organisers cards £7.

For a lot of gardeners planting their seeds is a very exciting time of year and they really treasure their seed collection.  How about helping your loved one get more organised?

These are a pack of 3 sets of Divider cards. 2 sets have been left blank, as people have different preference on how to organise their seeds, whether its into vegetable type, colours, or different type of flowers. They can choose how to organise them. For the 3rd set I have printed these with the months. As I think it’s important that you can see at a glance when seeds are due to be sown and you don’t waste them.  So these are really great to help the gardener in your life get organised and feel under control of their seed collection.

Charlotte Mullins – 12/01/2022  – Via Trust Pilot 5 Stars

I ordered two welly racks for family 2021 Christmas presents. The website is well designed and user friendly which made ordering easy. Both arrived in good time. The product / wood quality of these racks is superb. The joinery is to a high standard and beautifully painted. I had one engraved / personalisation which was very straightforward and looks fantastic. Both recipients were very pleased with their gift. Highly recommend. Great product and great customer service.
