Launch of SeedPod Eco-Gift Subscriptions for Christmas

sweetcornSeedPod, a local start-up that helps people to grow their own vegetables, has just this week (06.12.13) launched special Christmas gift subscription option on their website.

Having launched earlier this Autumn, SeedPod is already enabling hesitant novice gardeners to grow their own food without prior knowledge, while also making homegrowing simpler and more convenient for those with experienced green fingers. The company’s expertly crafted ‘guided growing programme’ even caters for changes in the seasons, as subscribers continue to receive seeds for sowing during every month of the year.

Now, with the introduction of gift subscriptions, SeedPod is offering Christmas shoppers the choice of giving a vegetable seed gift subscription lasting 3, 6, 9 or 12 months – something for every budget. Shoppers could even grab a bargain and save up to 15% over an individual monthly subscription. To make the process even simpler, shoppers can now make payments via PayPal on the site.

Recipients will receive two varieties of vegetable seeds each month for the duration of their subscription, as well as access to the step-by-step guidance required to sow their seeds, nurture their plants, and maximise their harvest.

The co-founder and director of SeedPod, Paul Robinson, talks about adding this feature to the website:
“We’re all looking for that original gift to give for a birthday or for Christmas that will be lovingly received, well remembered, and will have a minimal impact upon the environment . Our gift subscriptions are unique as the gift continues long after you finish your turkey sandwiches, not just through ongoing monthly deliveries, but with each of the meals prepared using the delicious vegetables grown from seed. In addition to the zero food miles, subscribers also have the peace of mind that everything received in the post can be dug straight into the ground, composted, or recycled.”

Pricing for SeedPod gift subscriptions are as follows [all prices are inclusive of VAT, and include free delivery]:

• An individual monthly SeedPod subscription for £6.00 per month, with no ongoing contractual obligation, and no cancellation fee.
• 3 month gift subscription for £18.00
• 6 month gift subscription for £34.20 (normally £36.00 with an individual monthly subscription – saving 5%)
• 9 month gift subscription for £48.60 (normally £54.00 with an individual monthly subscription – saving 10%)
• 12 month gift subscription for £61.20 (normally £72.00 with an individual monthly subscription – saving 15%)
