Happy New Year one and all, time to sit back, relax and take stock of the year gone by – and what a year it’s been.
This week I was lucky enough to visit the Glow are RHS Wisley in Surrey.
RHS Wisley is the flagship garden for the Royal Horticulture Society and for someone who grows their own veg, it’s a real treat to go there – I simply don’t go there often enough. The great thing about Wisley is that it changes with the seasons, which means that each time you go – you really do see something new, and the best of the season.
The Glow is no exception. I’d never been to a garden whereby the combination of lighting and plants were the focus. It’s a great idea entice footfall to the gardens during the colder winter months – and it also breaks up the time between Christmas and New Year fantastically.
As the early evenings have drawn in I’ve been quite busy on the blogging front, building pages that I’m hoping readers will find useful.
First I began working on a Plant A-Z page that can be found here. As I was building that page and compiling all of the information with regards to sowing, planting and harvesting I found myself searching for seed prices, which can be found in the sidebar of each plant page.
Then I thought to myself, hang on a minute, all of this needs to be in one place. I did a quick search online to see if there were any outlets or sites that compare seed prices and I couldn’t find one – so I thought I would build my own.
Prices being compared
I’ve started with comparing the prices of these five seed retailers and manufacturers, and I’m only comparing the prices of seeds that I’ve grown in the past. Each time I grow a new variety, it’ll get added to my Plant A-Z page and Price Comparison page.
The prices being compared are all prices that can be found online, rather than in store and they all reflect the same seed packet size.
And it goes without saying – but these prices don’t take into account any promotions that are in place, nor do they take into account postage.
If you’re a seed manufacture and want to be included in this seed price comparison, reach out and contact me here.
What’s next? Subscribe to a monthly buying guide of course!
I can put both my Plant A-Z information and Seed Price Comparison information together and start publishing buying guides via newsletter each month starting with January 2019 – so that you know the most cost effective place to purchase seeds for the month ahead.
If you’d like to receive a copy each month – use the form below (you’ll also see a pesky pop-up every now and then as well!)
I hope you find this useful, and if you spot an update to any seed prices, feel free to let me know here (I’ll also be checking at the start of each month)
Who knows, if this takes off over the course of the year I might just compile all of the data and publish the most cost effective seed price manufacturer 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. Sometimes… We just need a little bit of inspiration 🙂
