Seed Pantry has launched the delightful new Dad and Me Veg Seeds Starter Packs – a great gift for green-fingered Dads and all the family this Father’s Day (16th June).

If Dad has been talking about growing his own veg, this is a great place to start!

The Dad Pack is designed for garden allotments and contains a fantastic selection of ten easy-to-grow summer season vegetable seeds, including two gourmet lettuce varieties, chard, spinach, tumbling tomatoes, carrots, sweet peppers, French beans, tasty courgettes and Italian beetroot.

The Me Seeds Pack lets younger garders grow four varieties of vegetables and herbs – sweetcorn, cress, pumpkins and sunflowers.

The two packs contain all the equipment you need to get started, including mini propagators, bio-degradable rice husk pots, coir coconut husk pots, seed tray, organic mini compost disks, dibblet and seedling markers.

The starter packs arrive in stylish Seed Pantry gift boxes with the Dad Pack measuring 30cm wide x 25cm deep x 10cm high and the smaller Me Seeds Pack being 15cm wide x 10cm deep x 8cm high, made using recycled packaging and printed with vegetable inks. Boxes include easy-to-follow illustrated instructions, plus a handy notes pencil for Dad.

The carefully selected seed varieties grow well in pots, containers and the garden veg patch in sheltered sunny positions and can be planted during the course of the year.

Seed Pantry founder, Neil Whitehead says: “The Dad and Me Seeds Starter Packs make a great Father’s Day present as the whole family can get involved and enjoy spending time together outdoors over summer. The seeds for children need little attention and give a great sense of satisfaction when they are added to recipes and family dishes. It’s never to early to learn about growing your own vegetables at home and this pack contains a mixture of seeds that grow quickly and others that take their time, so there is always a sense of excitement when foods are harvested and eaten and new seeds are planted.

“I passionately believe it’s possible to grow high quality produce even in the smallest of urban spaces. With our new Dad and Me Veg Seeds Starter Packs we can help families to ‘grow their own’ resulting in amazing fresh organic vegetables, salads and herbs to add to recipes as well as a great sense of satisfaction.’

The Dad and Me Veg Seeds Starter Pack is priced at £48.75 and available to purchase now from
