Following the success of the RHS Award of Garden Merit flower and vegetable ranges, Mr Fothergill’s has added a range of seed collection packets in partnership with the experts at the RHS.
The additional range consists of 16 collection packs on a compact hotspot stand.

Each pack contains 6 specially chosen varieties and has a suggested selling price of £4.99. With eye catching packaging and POS featuring Matthew Pottage, RHS Wisley’s Garden Curator, the collection is easily sited alongside the RHS AGM seed ranges or as a stand-alone display.
