This decorative pin represents your undying allegiance to nature. Think of it as a fashionable crest for the gardener. The seeds looped around it—a squash, a pumpkin, a sunflower—symbolize growth. They are also the ultimate test of botanical IQ (just see who can correctly ID each). While a kilt isn’t a necessary accoutrement, the idea of the Scottish garments making a comeback a la Ali MacGraw style in Love Story gives us the happy shivers.
Closest to your heart, or simply pinned to your blazer or gardening jacket. Or your kilt.
A common misconception is that kilt pins pin the inner apron to the outer. Rather, the pin adds weight to the apron to prevent onlookers to catch a peek of the family jewels when the breeze blows a little too gustily.
One speck-sized seed can hold the DNA of a 10-foot tall plant.
Should you be in the Highlands, you can see the dress worn by by Liam Neeson (Rob Roy) and Mel Gibson (Braveheart) in Braveheart at The Scottish Kiltmaker Visitor Centre in Inverness. They should be wearing a Three Seeds, A love story pin.
