A few weeks ago, a rather large parcel arrived on my doorstep. It was a package I had been eagerly awaiting for a while. It was my Rocket Gardens delivery. Rocket Gardens was started in 2005, by Mike Kitchen. What started as a few seeds in his garden has now developed into a vegetable and herb seedling delivery service, with all plants starting life on their organic nursery in South Cornwall. They offer selection boxes, from Window Box Garden up to Allotment Garden, and also plant packages (hello pumpkin and squash patch!) When I was offered a Rocket Gardens review opportunity for the blog, I jumped at the chance. Since moving into our cottage, I have found myself in the garden more often than I thought I would. Enjoying the peacefulness and tranquility that comes with gardening.
In my box (which is only packed with recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging) was their Family Favourites Veg Patch selection. The contents vary depending on the season, and in ours was a selection of plants; beetroot, carrots, Cavolo Nero, courgette, green beans, leeks, lettuce, potatoes, rainbow chard, rocket, runner beans, spinach, sweet peas and tomatoes. We set about unpacking all the plants and getting them settled into their new home – our garden! In total we received a whopping 120 plants. At £34.99 for this box, it is a bargain.| | | Next → |
