Seeds at Belmont
Visitors to Belmont House in Kent, an 18th Century house by Samuel Wyatt, have this summer had the opportunity to purchase seeds of Bells of Ireland, a striking all-lime green plant which grows in the walled garden there. The plant provides a good background for other plants such as peonies. The seeds were supplied, packaged and personalised for Belmont by the London Seed Emporium. Bells of Ireland are one of a set of five including favourites such as Clarkia-double delight and Nigella-Miss Jekyll. Anne Partington-Omar, manager of Belmont said," This is a delightful addition to our small range of personalised items for Belmont and has been well received by our visitors" For more information and to view the London Seed emporium's Gift Packaged collections of "Bouquet" seeds that have been selected for cutting see www.londonseedemporium.co.uk. Belmont House and Gardens re-open to the public next year on 31 March, from that date the Gardens will open every day of the year. "
