Why are the seeds such great value?

One of our passions has always been getting more people in to growing, as Pretty Wild Seeds Ltd evolved we purchased a new packing machine which opened up lots of exciting possibilities. And one of those was to be able to package our seed in much smaller seed counts and reduce packaging and labour to bring our prices down as cheap as possible and still with the same responsibly sourced seeds as above.

This is why we will always strive to be budget in price, priceless in quality.
