Roll back a few months now and I'd just been shopping for some garden essentials, compost, seeds etc. Covid-19 was in the news but not wide spread across the country. Fast forward a week and it was looking likely we would all be locked down for the foreseeable.
Thankfully I had more than enough in the shed to plant all my seeds, and start preparing my raised beds etc. as it soon became apparent that spending a lot of time at home people wanted to get more involved in gardening and growing their own food.
That is essentially where Seed Craft came from, I had more time on my hands and decided I would like a much longer growing season this year with a much wider variety of things growing in my garden (whilst I still eagerly await an allotment plot) I researched a lot about what to plant and when, whilst doing so I realised there must be so many other people out there wanting to do the same and also my novice growers who may not know where to start.
That's where our monthly subscription boxes come in, for a small cost per month you get seeds delivered to you that are intended to be sown that month, taking all the guess work away and saving you the research time, also for experienced growers it brings variety that may not have been chosen.
After a crash course in building a website that not only functions well, is easy to navigate and looks nice. There was also photography to think about (much to my wife's dismay when she saw my creative mess in the kitchen), branding and products. So many little things went in to building my little company and I am very proud of what I have achieved and I urge anyone who has an idea to go ahead and follow that dream. If nothing else I can say I've learnt a lot about myself since starting with an idea through to launching a web store and posting out my first orders
