Ho-Mi Prices Down AGAIN !

We were delighted to be able to reduce the prices for our Korean Ho-Mis back in October, after we had been able to substantially reduce our import costs.

Now we have another reduction to announce, but only on the Large and Small Ho-Mis.  Other Ho-Mi models remain at the same prices as in October – they are still very good value!

It happened like this . . .

Years ago, another importer used to sell Ho-Mis in the UK.  He stopped selling them before we started, and in fact it was BECAUSE he had stopped that the South Korean manufacturer started looking for someone else to handle them.  Our Australian contacts at Allsun Farm / Gundaroo Tiller were kind enough to suggest us, and we have been selling Ho-Mis ever since!

Just a few weeks ago, the former importer's son found himself with some stock of Large and Small Ho-Mis that he wanted to move on and (again through contact with Joyce at Allsun Farm) he came to us and offered them to us at a favourable price.  Seems that his father had imported large numbers and so had been able to make even better savings on the import costs.
Now we have taken delivery and have a very large stock of Large and Small Ho-Mis at unrepeatable prices:–

Large Ho-Mis at £8.40 each (previously £11.60)
Small Ho-Mis at £9.80 each (previously £11.50)

Yes, we know that looks odd!  The Small Ho-Mis have always been cheaper than the Large ones, but this fresh stock is about 95% Large Ho-Mis, so we have made bigger savings on them.

When we eventually need to re-order from South Korea, the Large ones will be pricier than the Small but, until then, now is the opportunity to buy at LOVELY LOW PRICES !

Find them on our website at

UPDATE :  March 2021: 
In 2020, we sold out of the Small Ho-Mis from this old stock and so had to order some more from Korea, which meant that we had to put the price for Small Ho-Mis up a bit more, but still just less than £11.50.  Postage price rises since then have nudged up the prices of both Large and Small Ho-Mis, but the Large ones are still a real bargain and we still have quite a lot left.

Special Offers – Soil Blockers and SAALET Seeders

Your opportunity to get a Soil Blocker at reduced price!
Once again, we have a few damaged or shop-soiled Soil Blockers on offer.  These all work perfectly, but have either suffered some damage in transit or (in one case) been mistreated.

 First of all, one that has NOT been damaged at all!  This is a Mini 4, finished in a dark green protective paint coating.  Ladbrooke made some of these before they introduced the resin-coated option.  It's a good buy at a slightly lower price than a standard Mini 4, and comes complete with 4 long ('dowel') seed pins as well as the standard short pins.

Normal price for the new-style Mini 4 is £19.60
This one: £17.50 including UK postage
Email to buy  SOLD

Number 2 is a standard new-style Mini 4 which suffered a slight dent in transit.  The dent has been straightened, but you will still be able to see the 'scar'!  Again, supplied with 4 long ('dowel') seed pins as well as the standard short pins.

£14.50 including UK postage  SOLD

This third one is a real bargain!  It's an old-style Mini 4 (the different handle is really the only difference).  A customer managed to break it and then had the cheek to ask for a replacement!  We were too trusting in those days and sent him one, but at least he returned the damaged one.  Restored to full working condition with a little TLC, this will give you years of good service, but it is a little battle-scarred!

The price of these old-style Mini 4s was about £16.00, but
this one is £10.00 including UK postage  Email to buy   SOLD

And then, a couple of Mini 5s that got a little bent in transit but have now been 'unbent' and work perfectly.

Normal Price £17.00
These ones £13.00 each, including UK postage
Email to buy

Last of these bargain Soil Blockers is a Micro 20 with spots on the zinc-plated finish.  Perfect in every other respect.

Normal price £15.10
This one: £12.50 including UK postage
Email to buy  SOLD

NOT ILLUSTRATED, we have a few SAALET Easy Sowers with damaged cardboard boxes.  These got a little wet on the outside, but there is no damage to the Seeders.  Normal price £19.45, these are reduced at £16.00 each, including UK postage  SOLD

Email us to buy any of these specials . . . When they're gone, they're gone!
We will update this page as soon as any of these are sold.
