Preview catalogue for 2019 available now
I do love getting new seeds to trial and this selection by Chiltern Seeds bodes very good things next summer!
The new preview catalogue is well worth a look with some absolute corkers – I’m loving the two new sweet pea blends and the lovely Antirrhinum Chantilly Bronze in particular.
