Piccolo Seeds was born in 2012, the same year as us! They offer vegetables, fruits, edible flowers, herbs and plants specially designed for pot growing: compact, dwarf varieties, suitable for terrace garden spaces. We love their concept and adore that beautiful packaging.
Snapdragon Brighton Rock is an heirloom variety that comes with a lovely blend of pastel bi-coloured blooms. The common name snapdragon originates from the fact that the flower looks like a dragon's mouth having its throat squeezed. If that’s not bizarre enough, the flower seed pods turn into creepy skulls when they die. Perhaps it is because of this ambiguous appearance that in the Victorian language of flowers, it symbolised deception and presumption. Fun fact: Only large insects like bumblebees can pollinate snapdragons because the petals are too heavy for smaller insects to push apart.
