I made an interesting discovery when I went down to Seeds of Italy !!!

Paolo and I were chatting about home produce ...

Did you know that only ONE seed supplier grows their own ???

And who they are ??? Well it's Kings!! rk01_aola

P was telling me most of the seeds we buy are chinese grown and imported for resale ... Extraordinary !! Shocked

realseeds are also top of my list for customer service.

When I got poor results from a packet of seeds and asked for their recommendation for an easier variety (I explained that it was poor weather, no greenhouse etc that was to blame rather than the seed) they insisted on sending another variety for free Very Happy
