Many of you have purchased a Suttons Seed tin recently. In fact the take-up has been so good we’re thinking of launching a different version each year and seeing if it can be a collectable. The only trouble is that people do seem to like to keep hold of their seed tins. For years and years!
Mrs Sims recently sent in the following photos of a beautiful Suttons Seed tin believed to be about 100 years old.
This tin was used by a relative of Mrs Sims who was Head Gardener to the Arkwright family of Holbrook Hall, Derbyshire. The Arkwrights were connected to the cotton mills of Derbyshire, descendants of the famous Richard Arkwright.
What do you think? Should we launch a new tin design each year?
