Italian company Piccolo is a seed company designed for contemporary living. Beautiful, ethical products that blossom however small the space.
In response to the scarcity of large gardens in cities, Piccolo selects seeds that do well in urban environments. They offer plant, vegetable, flower and herb seeds that are designed to thrive in small spaces and pots. A connection to nature is vital to our health and wellbeing, and Piccolo understands that this is often missing in towns and cities.
Piccolo pack all of their seeds in sustainable and recyclable materials and are currently working with eco packaging brand Controversa to develop bespoke, reusable boxes. All of their seeds are of the open pollinated variety, which means that birds and bees have naturally pollinated them. They are also 100% GMO free. Planting also increases the number of pollinators that will visit your yard or balcony.
As an antidote to garish, shiny seed packets, Piccolo designs contemporary packaging complete with beautiful illustrations. They also make seed collections from herbs to add to your cocktails to the ingredients for making tomato sauce. A simple idea beautifully done.
