What is in our Packaging?

3 mins to read

Heath & Heather’s packaging design is inspired by wild English hedgerows, helping to communicate the brand’s close-to-nature philosophies. The ‘garden stake’ label that sits at the front of the hedgerow illustration harks back to Heath & Heather’s beginnings when Samuel & James Ryder first founded the company, selling seeds in penny packets.
