The weather was superb and everyone enjoyed a tour of the Kings Seeds site, including the Laboratory where seeds are tested for germination and vigour and the seed packing area. Old equipment dating back to 1888 when Kings was first established was also on display, including measurers such as Bushels and Peck, seed polishers and centrifugal helix spiral seed sorters.

Successional Sowing - How to Get The Most From Your Raised Beds
Sometimes, less is more, so whether you have an allotment, large kitchen garden or just a single raised bed, you should use successional sowing to ensure a steady, regular and appropriate supply of vegetable throughout the growing season, rather than a glut all at once. Basically, using the principle of little and often, it involves extending your harvest by sowing a row every few weeks or so. Quick growing crops such as French beans, peas, spinach, salads and carrots lend themselves to this way of cultivation. In this way you can ensure a regular, fresh supply of vegetables that otherwise would perish quickly under storage conditions.

Kings Seeds VIP Press Day
Preparations are now well underway for our first ever VIP press day to be held here at our Head Office and farm at Kelvedon, Essex on Thursday 11th June.
