Exotic Seed Competition from Seed Parade

The lovely people at Seed Parade are offering one lucky reader the chance to win 30 packets of seed each (The selection will include exotic ornamentals as well as unusual edibles).

With Seed Parades garden seeds, you could have strong, healthy growing plants with high yields of delicious fruits, vegetables and herbs. They only choose the finest quality seeds from around the world which are then sent to you in a padded envelope, so they arrive fresh and ready to sow. As well as providing affordable seed, Seed Parade offer first class royal mail postage for only £1.29, by keeping packaging and other costs to a minimum. We have had seed in the past and they were delivered fast and were a great quality, often with very high numbers of seed per packet.


Ricinus
To top it off, they also have a range of thousands of heirloom, traditional and rare varieties of every seed for mere pennies, so you can find your usual choice or try something new!

As well as selling top quality seed, Seed Parade also have an interesting blog and forum that are well worth checking out.

To enter simply follow Alternative Eden and then visit the Seed Parade website and tell us which variety of seed is your favourite. Extra entries can be made by sharing this competition on Twitter (include #AlternativeEden) or facebook (by sharing the post from the Alternative Eden Facebook page).

  2. Pumpkin Big Max. Last year we had a shop bought pumpkin for the first time at Halloween. Never carves a pumpkin before. This year hoping to grow my own. Weather isn't being helpful. But looking at the Pumpkin Big Max it kind of gives me hope!

    I'd plant them around my Chocolate Cosmos, which is very prone to blackfly, and they would look stunning and repel the nasties.

  23. Strawberry Golden Alexandria. I love strawberries and have quite a few varieties, including one I've named myself. However, all mine are ground planted and they fall prey to my guinea pigs and puppy! I've been looking for a nice variety that will take container gorwing and this seems just the ticket!
