Sacha Brown – Queen of Seed

Cuckfield, West Sussex, United Kingdom

Two decades of carefully curated soil, rich in mycorrhizal hyphae and producing astonishing results are the effect of Sacha’s passion (and lots of hard work). Her garden is a thriving pollinator habitat with dozens of flower and vegetable varieties blooming together happily. Digging has been long forgotten, swapped for mulching and soil creation; these are ways Sacha hopes to enhance the ground with which she spends so much time.

In her opinion, gardening and vegetable growing should be simple and enriching. To help those at the beginning of their journey, she created a monthly seed subscription service with her own tried and tested varieties that she sends at the perfect sowing time with growing instructions and video tutorials attached. Her garden journal is full of carefully kept notes, design plans, plants ordered and tested over the past fifteen years, and probably some secrets, too.

When looking at the photos of colourful flowers and unusual vegetables such as Choi Sum, one can only give in and start browsing the exciting seed collections Sacha has in her library. Her belief that everyone can grow something that benefits the Earth as much as ourselves, even in the smallest of spaces, is certainly one I can get behind.
