Pip partner: Diggers Club


Founded in 1978 by Clive and Penny Blazey, The Diggers Club believes gardeners are the secret weapon in combating climate change.

Whether it has been championing heirloom vegetable and flower seeds in the face of corporatisation, planting water- saving gardens or preserving historic homes and gardens such as Heronswood (circa 1857) and the Garden of St Erth (circa 1854), Diggers has always been much more than your typical garden company.

Now And Forever

The Diggers Club is now owned by The Diggers Foundation, which the Blazeys established in 2011 to ensure the gardens and the club’s heirloom seed-saving legacy will continue as a valuable resource for future gardeners to enjoy. All proceeds from Diggers memberships and product sales are used to help deliver programs on tree planting, seed saving and important education.
