Seed warning

Gardeners throughout the UK are reported to have received unsolicited packets of seeds through the post over the last few weeks. They appear to have been sent from China.

The Animal and Plant Health Agency, part of DEFRA, warns gardeners not to sow or compost the seeds as they may be harmful to the environment. 

If you have received seeds by post that you didn’t order please email: planthealth.info@apha.gov.uk or phone 03000 200 301.
