Celebrating National Allotments Week

National Allotments Week started in 2002 to raise awareness of allotments, their role in helping people live healthier lifestyles and creating a sense of community amongst those who tend to them.

This year’s National Allotments Week runs from 8-14th August and the celebration theme is Bugs, Bees & Broccoli.  It’s all about acknowledging the importance of gardening with nature in mind. Not only do allotments produce food for people to eat, but they also provide habitat for bees, bugs and other pollinating insects, which in turn aids pollination. 

Choose Promotional Seeds to Celebrate Allotments Week

Here at Sow Easy, we supply brand agencies, trade suppliers, and wholesalers with eco-friendly promotional products that show their clients support for nature

Our promotional seeds and plant-based products can be used by your clients as a customer giveaway to encourage the growth of flowers, fruit, vegetables and herbs during Allotments Week, and beyond.

Every time a gardener uses the seeds or tends to their garden, they’ll remember the brand that gifted them. So not only do promotional seeds promote any brand, but also show that the business is doing its bit for the environment.

Want to get involved in celebrating National Allotments Week?  Then check out our recommended branded & promotional seed packets that are a perfect fit for the campaign.

Conservaton - Bee Shaped Seedstick ShapesSeedsticks®

Sow Easy Seedsticks grow into flowers and plants that protect insects while they carry out their important work of pollination, predating harmful insects, and decomposition to give us nutrient-rich soil.

Seedsticks are exceptionally versatile, come in many different shapes and can meet any promotional requirements or budget. They are ideal for school and community projects, like allotments!

On average, it will take seeds two weeks to germinate. Each seed stick placed in the soil will sprout a lasting impression of your business and reinforce its nature-friendly credentials.
