This year will see one of the original seed packet brands, Bees Seeds, return to the industry.? G Plants, specialist in quality seed, bulbs and growing gifts, will launch a brand new Bees Seeds range to retailers for the first time in decades, as well as revealing plenty of growing gift product innovations to help retailers maximise sales of the range.

Die-hard seed collectors and heritage gardening fans will remember Bees Seeds fondly. Dating back to the early 1900s, the company developed a reputation for quality vegetable and flower seeds, and helped Woolworths to become the number one garden products supplier in the 1930s.? Bees Seeds?s heritage packaging has been given an updated old-english style with hand drawn illustrations that will appeal to buyers looking for premium seeds and gardening gifts for the core mature garden centre audience.

Bees Seeds & Gifts premium range

Flower Seed Packs ? large format seed packs, 16 different varieties of premium and F1 type flowers. RRP ?1.49 each.

Seed Shakers ? five different mixtures, packaged in attractive gift tins. Easy to sow, just shake over prepared soil, cover and water. RRP ?3.99 each.

Gardener?s Starter Kits ? combining seeds, compost and sundries in various combinations, also available in a gift tin.? RRP ?9.99.

The whole range is available to buyers now, delivered as part of a quality wooden display stand.

Other Bees Gifts products include ?Novel Seed Collections? – seed varieties packaged in a wooden book giftbox to reflect the title of the ?book?, flower varieties chosen to give blooms throughout the whole year including The Language of Flowers and A Year In Bloom. Wooden Trug Gardener?s Gift Sets (including seeds, gloves and wooden dibber), an Allotment Vegetables and Cut Flower Garden collections.

G Plants? director Alex Reihl said: ?By resurrecting the Bees? Seeds brand, we have created a range of products that although do not display the G Plants logo, are all produced with the highest specifications, with seeds and bulbs coming from European stock, packaged in our own factories to ensure quality and quantity.?
