Have a look at this thread on the GW forum - loads of EU seed supplier info

On Thursday afternoon I ordered some tomato seeds from https://laboiteagraines.com/ because the local plant fair where I buy old varieties of tomatoes is cancelled again.  They have organic and old varieties of tomatoes, a local heritage pumpkin and even PSB!

Anyway, ordered Thursday, packed and shipped Friday, arrived in the post Saturday.   Impressed.

That's a lovely site Obelixx - although I will get shot if I spend any more cash on seeds. 
I had forgotten about https://www.fatalii.net who are EU based too - another place to spend my wage!
Moved to Portugal - ain't going back!

Better bookmark it for next year then.

I shall look at your site but not buy any more seeds this year.  I have what I call an "embarrassment" of seeds now.

Oh boy.  Next year I may well have an embarrassment of chillies!

I certainly have an "embarrassment" of heritage tomatoes...

That's no bad thing Saddad.  Which are your favourites?

Black Cherry and Black Prince, depending on size. Green Zebra, since I have lost Green Sausage which I had in the '90's. A Russian Red which I got from HSL a couple of years ago. Big White, Yellow Oxheart, Orange Banana. In "normal" medium reds Clibran's Victory.

Interesting.  Green Zebra 2 and 3 years ago were fab but last year's crop wasn't tasty at all, some self sown and some newly sown.   None of our yellows was very good either but Orange Banana was lovely.
