  Caro Somerset: Objects for life and home   Bruton is the other end of Somerset to me, but I still find any excuse to go. Caro is very much one of the reasons (the other is the bakery At The Chapel) that I find myself straying off the 303 at that very point. Caro is elegant and beautiful and full of homeware, journals and ceramics that I just can't resist. I will admit, I was overwhelmed and elated when Natalie got in touch with me asked to stock my seeds. I deliver these ones by hand, obviously.

  Midgley Green: Products crafted by maker & place   Katharine and Seamus are our kind of people. I'd been stalking them very gently and I was delighted when they became the newest stockist of GAF seeds this Spring. We share dreams; of cottages and orchards and barns in the countryside. Their shop is full of all the things I want in my house too, and it's well worth a trip to the seaside to visit them and the beautiful Bailey.

  Collate Interiors: New & vintage homewares, art, craft & antiques   A very English sort of shop in a very traditional sort of English market town. This is a brand new addition to the Axminster high street and what a fabulous thing too. Baskets and blankets, soaps and ceramics, and now there's a little box of seeds on the counter to spread a bit of GAF love around the Dorset county.  Bricks & mortar at Trinity Square, Axminster TA2 6NR

  In Bloom Guernsey   I find it amazing that my envelopes of seeds go quite so far and wide. They've gone all the way to Guernsey and I can't help thinking they'll love the climate. In Bloom is a proper shop selling plants and flowers, but also interesting planters and succulents. If you visit, let me know, I'd love to hear what it's like. I'm saving up my leave for a trip to see my little ones on tour.  Bricks and mortar at 1 Mill Street, Le Bordage, Saint Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 1HG

  Flint Lewes   One of my first stockists and one of the best. Even for a town stuffed with great shops, this is one is a cracker. Botanicals, linen, interiors and of course, flowers. You can lose a lot of time in this shop. I know I did. I got a year's worth of cards and wrapping paper on one visit.  Bricks & mortar at 49 High St, Lewes East Sussex BN7 2DD

  Childrey Stores   The village shop of dreams. God, I admire ambition and this team has it in spades. Coffee and lunches and lots of great food, I'm really pleased to have the seeds taking pride of place in this award winning store. I've heard a rumour that they sell gin too. I want one of these in Corfe.  Bricks & mortar at High Street, Childrey, Oxfordshire, OX12 9UE

  Wild Fawn Jewellery   Not your most obvious pairing, but we share an ethos. Emma and I believe in making things by hand, being accountable for who is involved in our businesses and creativity, how we affect the environment and the footprint we leave. This might be a lot more effort for both us and for you, but we believe in how impiortant this is.  Emma uses recycled silver and Fairtrade gold to make her jewellery so it can be made and worn with a clean conscience.  Buying Fairtrade gold helps to build miners futures by investing in social projects such as new schools and healthcare, and most importantly,  to make their own way to prosperity. Plus, it's gorgeous.  Online at  wildfawnjewellery.com
