Wild Wales Seeds launches vegetable garden seed kits
Online seed business Wild Wales Seeds has launched its new Grow Your Own boxes as an easy way to create a vegetable garden from scratch.
Inside the eco-friendly packaging you’ll find:
  • 3 x 100% biodegradable plant pots
  • 3 x peat free compost discs
  • 3 x seed varieties
  • 3 x eco-friendly plant markers
  • …and an information card containing instructions and a simple step by step guide.
Designed as a unique gift or a simple way to start your own crop, the kits contain everything you need to start sowing in one box. As well as vegetable seeds, each box also includes a pack of wildflower seeds.
“Ecology, caring for the planet and re-wilding is something very close to our hearts and that’s why we’ve also enclosed in your box a 5g pack of our most popular butterfly & bee mix for you to start creating your own wildflower garden,” says Wild Wales Seeds founder Rhys Jenkins. “Not only do they encourage high biodiversity, they also make a pretty and colourful addition to the garden.”
Having young children inspired Rhys and his wife Kelly to come up with the idea for the Grow Your Own boxes.
“Growing from seed is easy and fun and we hope we can encourage everyone from our own children to keen first time gardeners to get planting,” says Rhys. “We want to show the next generation that seasonal fruit and veg is right here in the UK and doesn’t have to be imported from all over the world. It can be grown and eaten locally with no carbon footprint and no plastic packaging. We have also tried to be as environmentally friendly as possible, so our eco-friendly packaging is sourced from sustainable materials.”
Rhys set up Wild Wales Seeds last year at the beginning of the pandemic and has been delighted with how the business has grown in such unpredictable times. A former farmer, Rhys knows the benefits of spending time in nature, and is keen to encourage others to get outdoors more.
“Gardening is brilliant for mental and physical health and helps the environment too,” he says. “This is just the right time of year to get out in the garden and these boxes make vegetable gardening simple, mess-free, fun and eco-friendly - it really is the cleverest way to get growing!”
Wild Wales Seeds is also encouraging customers to share photographs of the things they have grown by sending them to or tagging Wild Wales Seeds on Facebook or Instagram; they will then publish their favourite photos.
