    Not sure if this works with the free postage code.. will try it out and edit in 5 :) No, don't bother it adds postage on of 4.95 and sacks are only 8ltrs..

      They're joking, £22.76 for 5 seed spuds and 5 empty bags! (+ 5 pkts 'lucky dip' seeds).

      5 Charlottes would be about 50p from Wilko and could be planted in growbags cut in half and upended (reduced to 75p each at Wilko at end of season), another £1.88, total = £2.38.

      This appears to be a ruse to get rid of excess varieties of veg seeds using their full prices to inflate the supposed value of this package. 6 Packets of T&M seeds could be obtained for just the £1.95 P&P last year. Got all my seeds for the next 2- 3 years or so at only 33p/pkt, some of which would have been a few pounds each at full price.

      And you'd need to spend aother £4 on MPC to fill those empty bags.
