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.

About Lis

Our Suttons Blog comes from Lis Wallace, Head of Customer Service here at Suttons since 2002. Living on the edge of Dartmoor Lis has a large and “somewhat tricky” garden split across several levels but with the bonus of a stream tumbling through and a large, fertile veg patch. Across the blog Lis will share some of the knowledge she has gained over the years from her father, from working at Suttons and also from her own trial and error. Storm the Jack Russell is bound to chip in now and then. That’s what terriers do!
