Organic gardening as a concept has never been more popular or more widely understood, and with the dramatic changes in the way that our food has been produced over the past 60 years - such as the used of indiscriminate insecticides and genetic modification – it’s no wonder that more and more people are looking at growing their own fresh produce. Together with a spate of recent food scares - combined with increases in population obesity - the importance of safe, good quality food has become a priority for anyone who has a passion for what they eat.
Although the convenience of packet seeds can be found throughout the world, the practices used in their production are generally unknown and sometimes questionable, so how can you guarantee that the seeds you are using to provide food for your family and loved ones are not only completely safe but are also grown and packaged using organic and sustainable practices.
Here in the United Kingdom, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is a well known lover of plants and holder of the Royal Horticultural Societies most prestigious award, the ‘Victoria Medal of Honour’. It was down to his belief in the advantages of organic farming - which also helps in the regeneration and protection of the countryside and wildlife - that motivated Charles, Prince of Wales into creating the Duchy Originals company in 1990 - named after the Duchy of Cornwall estates that are held in trust by the Prince of Wales – in order to promote the highest quality of organic food products.
The 'Duchy Originals' company has now released an exclusive range of organic vegetable and herb seeds for the discerning organic gardener. Certified organic by the Soil Association and guaranteed by the Thompson and Morgan Seed Company (Established in 1855), this new seed range comprising of 42 vegetables and herb seeds as well as 9 peas and beans is of the highest quality and a must for any gardener who values the safe history of their food. Featuring many of traditional English kitchen garden varieties, the Duchy Originals ‘Organic Seed Collection’ also has many examples suitable to challenge the more seasoned, knowledgeable gardener.
'Duchy Originals' also donates all profits from the sales of its products to 'The Prince’s Charities Foundation'.
“Soil is primeval, and a living organism – we must treasure it. At Highgrove, I have always practised the art of feeding the soil rather than the plant.”
