For over 200 years Suttons has been using heavy duty hessian sacks to store our bulk seed prior to putting it into packets. Billions of seeds have been stored in these sacks over the years, but now we find ourselves with a surplus and for the very first time we're making them available to our customers.
They all feature Suttons messaging, much dating back to before Suttons moved from Reading to Torquay in 1976, and they're in great condition, so will give you many years of service. You may find them a little dusty, perhaps with a few seeds still inside, but that's all part of their character!
The sacks come in a number of sizes, from very large, sack-race-sized ones (which we use for beans), to smaller, handbag-sized ones (which we use for smaller seeds). It will be a lucky dip as to which sizes you receive but all are equally useful.
So now’s the time to start thinking about what you could use them for - from storing potatoes and onions to tools or toys, the list is endless. You don’t have to keep seeds in them after all!
