Die-hard seed collectors and heritage gardening fans will remember Bees Seeds fondly.

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.?
