We're very excited to introduce our new paper seed packets. The packets are not only recyclable, we've also included more planting information and a handy QR code to put all the information you need at your fingertips.
 
While our soft plastic packets provided ideal conditions for seed storage, we know that many of our customers are concerned about sustainability and want a plastic-free option. And we agree! It's taken us some time to find packaging that is paper-based and recyclable but with the qualities needed for good seed storage. The new packets are a little larger and easier to open than our old packaging, and they can be cut or torn open and then folded over to keep unsown seeds safe.
 
To minimise waste, we'll be introducing the new seed packets gradually over a 6 to 12 month period. During this time customers may receive a mix of old and new packets in their orders. Rest assured that all the seeds we sell are of the highest quality and that we regularly test our seeds to make sure they meet our high standards.

Here's what's included on our new seed packets:

We hope that you appreciate our paper seed packets as much as we do!
