Seed Packets: Spices by Piccolo Seeds
Seed packs for the contemporary home garden. The plants you can grow from these seeds are specially designed for pot growing: compact, dwarf varieties, suitable for terrace garden spaces.
Each packet come with growing instructions and advice.
All the varieties are open-pollinated, non-hybrid and non-GMO from controlled, certified cultivations that are Italian, EU or Extra-EU.
The number of seeds varies from pack to pack, depending on the size of the seed, the type of plant and its rarity.
Common Anise: Anise is native to the eastern Mediterranean and is one of the oldest known spice plants, used both for culinary and medicinal purposes, thanks to its sweet and very aromatic licorice-y flavour. Through the Romans, who served anise-spiced cakes after heavy meals to aid digestion, it was spread throughout Europe by Roman legions. Anise seeds, whole or ground up, are used in teas and for confectionery purposes, as well as in a wide variety of regional and ethnic liqueurs, e.g., Greek ouzo, Italian sambuca and French pastis, just to name a few.
Black Cumin Nigella: Nigella, also known as Black Cumin, is an annual, flowering plant native to Asia and the Middle East. Its wispy, elegant, blue flowers look stunning in any garden or balcony arrangement and, if you can resist picking the delicate blooms, the seed pods that develop from the flowers are equally glorious. In fact, the seeds are the edible part of the plant and are widely used in Indian, Middle Eastern and Slavic cooking for their strong aroma and spicy taste.
Piccolo was born in 2012 with the intention of offering seeds for urban gardens. They have a mix of vegetables, edibles flowers and herbs specially designed for pot-growing, which are compact, dwarf varieties, suitable for terrace garden spaces.
