Google sends us the Gift of Cress

google-cress
Generally we only get the cheapest Google promotional gimmickry sent to us, so this does beg the question of whether out there somewhere, a big London agency has received, say, the Gift of Alstroemeria Seed*, the Gift of Unusual Basil*, or perhaps even, the Gift of Exotic Mushroom Spawn.

* a quick look at the Chiltern Seed Catalogue suggests that Alstroemeria plants and novelty basils are right up there when it comes to expensive seed.   I can see why with the novelty basil, every time I grew the weird exciting ones they always got greenfly.  Stick to plain old basil, is my advice.

What is it with promotional seeds? When tidying the other week, I found a bag of promotional seeds (complete with aspirational flower pot) that Pellinor had been given as an inspirational induction gift by a previous employer (and promptly put in a dark cupboard to languish disconsolate in uninspirational solitude.)

Though it occurs to me suddenly that our roleplaying party last week possessed copious basil, and also did much promotional PR work, but it never once occurred to us to distribute promotional Zoolar basil seeds. Clearly we missed a trick here.

I wish to know what is necessary in order to receive the Gift of Pitcher Plants.
