over het Italiaanse bedrijf Piccolo Seeds (bron:piccoloseeds.com)
Piccolo was born in 2012 with the intention of offering select seeds for urban gardens.
We offer vegetables and plants specially designed for pot growing: compact, dwarf varieties, suitable for terrace garden spaces.
We don’t just offer vegetables. We think a balcony garden should also be beautiful so we offer fruits, edibles flowers and herbs. Our selected seeds are packed with sustainable and completely recyclable materials. We collaborate with companies and individuals, creating customized seed packets, botanical wedding favours and other bespoke products
Are they GMO seeds or hybrids?
Absolutely not! All the varieties we sell are open-pollinated, non-hybrid and non-GMO.
What does ‘open pollinated’ mean?
When selection of these characteristics occurs naturally, the varieties thus created are defined as ‘open pollinated’. This means that the seeds produced by the plant, if re-seeded the following year, will yield a plant that has the same characteristics, unless the plant has been naturally pollinated by insects or other pollinating agents.
Where do the seeds come from?
From controlled, certified cultivations that are Italian, EU or Extra-EU.
Are they organic seeds?
Unfortunately, no. The explanation for this is very simple: the varieties that we offer are in some cases so particular and rare that it is not always possible to find them in organic forms. But, we make every effort to find them in organic forms.
Are the seeds treated?
No, our seeds do not undergo any chemical treatment before being packed.
