Links to seed catalogues
This is a work in progress... Please feel free to add any of your favourites that I might have missed, and any comments or reviews of the sites listed. Cheers, Bupster.
- Potato mad. Also (slightly limited) range of seeds at just 50p a packet.
- An activistic organisation providing an amazing open pollinating range, especially if you join and have access to their full list, their catalogue is a beauty, bed time reading of the highest quality. Seeds are not cheap but are excellent.
- No pictures but very entertaining descriptions of a good range of flowers, fruit and vegetables, including an enormous selection of wildflowers. "Very reliable, lots of unusual veg seeds, and they give you *loads* of seeds per packet." - fluffygrue
- Supplier to commercial growers of herbs and salads, but they sell to the public, too and offer a few things you don't see elsewhere.
- Long-established supplier of seeds and plants
- "Excellent seed suppliers that work out fairly cheap." - Sandersj89.
- "Very very good seed supplier, especially good for spuds, but I am biased as my family have used this outfit for over 50 years." - Sandersj89.
- Very wide range of seeds in useful categories.
- For the exhibitionists amongst us.
- Heritage seed library. Different range every year; members can choose twelve, of which they receive their top six plus a lucky dip.
- If you have an allotment, you probably get most of your seeds here. Kings have a deal with several allotment societies - so check before you order online.
- W Robinson's Mammoth Vegetable seeds. Sounds like you can grow your own woolly elephant type animal.
- Organic herbs and vegetables and, peculiarly, horse paddock grass mixtures. Should you like your manure fresh.
- Medwyn Williams has won many Chelsea prizes for his veg - this is his seedshop
- Another big supplier to the large scale grower - probably of interest only if you have a need to buy cheaply in bulk.
- A recently improved site and a good range, especially of chilli peppers, and reasonably priced.
- Does what it says on the tin.
- The first stop if you're gardening organically with a huge range, but can be pricy. Commercial arm of the HDRA (now Garden Organic).
- Mail order only - the most attractive seed catalogue you'll ever own. A pleasure to browse.
- 'Real' seeds from a firm that started on a Cambridge allotment. No hybrids. Many heirloom varieties. Reasonable prices, generous quantities, and customers are encouraged to save their own seeds.
- Suppliers of a range of rare and unusual seeds including chilli seeds, heirloom tomato seeds, banana seeds and exotic fruit seeds.
- Very pretty website but outrageously expensive.
- Rare and unusual seeds. Organic vegetables and herbs, though not all that rare or unusual.
- Very cheap seeds by weight, large range and fast delivery.
- Wonderful range but be careful what you order as some packets contain up to 10,000 seeds!
- Major seed supplier.
- Another major supplier, T&M often have special offers - the current season's offer is your most expensive packet of seeds free. Dangerous, if you ask me.
