Sow Sugar Snap Peas now in your hothouse to enjoy them throughout winter!

You can buy these seeds from my market stall at The Cygnet Market.

If you need any further advice, please ask. My father (and grandfather) ran a successful nursery for many years in Adelaide and I have grown up amongst trees, plants and seeds. I want people to be able to grow their own food.

If you would like to purchase Cottage Garden seeds or Native seeds, you can order these from us at Cygnet Market.

All of my products are also available most days from 1pm at The Garden Shed and Pantry, Cygnet
