Thompson & Morgan nigella seeds featured on BBC1's The Apprentice this week, as contestants in the series were tasked with finding packets of the seeds as part of their quest to be Lord Sugar's new employee.
The contestants in the series visited Chelsea Gardener and Clifton Nurseries garden centre as part of their discount negotiation task, in which the two teams of business hopefuls had to buy 10 items at the best possible prices. Alongside a human skeleton, diamond ring and a kosher chicken, their shopping list also included nigella seeds.
The team bought Thompson & Morgan nigella 'Persian Jewels Mixed', which cost £2.69 for 600 seeds, negotiating £6.72 for three packets, saving £1.35 on the retail value.
Thompson & Morgan ecommerce Manager Clare Dixey, said: "It's great to get such good exposure on one of the BBC's most watched programmes, but why should the apprentices be the only ones to get a bargain from us? We feel it's only right that we pass the saving on to our valued customers. As such, for the rest of December our customers can log on to www.thompson-morgan.com and add three packets of 'Persian Jewels Mixed' to their basket for just £6.72."
