Vegetable & Seed Growing Kit a winning idea for 2021

The Taylors Bulbs Vegetable & Seed Growing Kit won the Garden Plants, Seeds and Bulbs category at the 2020 Glee New Product Awards. 


The product is an ideal impulse line for novice Grow-Your-Own gardeners, bringing both seeds and bulb/tuber grown vegetables together in one handy kit, removing the bewildering amount of choice for the novice.  


The Vegetable & Seed Growing Kit contains a broad range of easy to grow favourites including onions, garlic, seed potatoes as well as lettuce, courgettes and tomatoes.


The judges commented that it was a perfect product for Spring 2021 and for the new gardeners that have recently come into the marketplace.


Adam Taylor, Director of Taylors Bulbs, said: “We are delighted to have won a Glee New Product Award and that the judges could see the opportunities in a product such as this. There will be plenty of people looking to continue the trend to grow their own vegetables in 2021 and we need to show them that garden retailers can present them with easy solutions.”

The sister to the Vegetable & Seed Growing Kit is the Potato Growing Kit, also designed to be the perfect solution for those new gardeners who are a little unsure what seed potatoes to select and how to grow them. The Seed Potato Growing Kit contains three varieties of seed potato with a potato growing bag for each variety, perfect for the smaller garden, patio or even balcony. Each kit comes with planting labels, full and easy to follow planting instructions and both kits are packaged in attractive crate style packs with an RRP of only £9.99, making them both superb impulse purchase products.



Richard Carrick, Sales Manager, added: “The pre-season orders for Spring 2021 are looking strong with significant increases in seed potatoes, onion sets and vegetables, and there is a bullish attitude toward the summer flowering bulbs as well. We all have a greater understanding about the knock-on effects of Covid restrictions for the gardening market and are seeing increasing recognition that the restrictions will still be in place in early 2021, thus leading to a continued interest in gardening and producing homegrown produce.”
