For wholesale customers we provide the widest range of species and provenances available. Please contact us for your individual requirements and quotes. Seed supplied wholesale carries full certification and we provide all necessary export paperwork.
New Stock Additions
We are delighted to add a range of wildflower meadow mixes and single wildflower species to our extensive tree list. These fit in well with the seeds we already offer, and are of the same professional quality. For a list of wildflowers particularly attractive to bees and other insects, please see below.
Chalara Fraxinea - Ash dieback
On 29th October 2012 the UK Government introduced legislation to protect our ash trees against the threat from this fungus. There is effectively a ban on imports of ash plants and seed, and there is also a ban on the movement of plants and seed within the UK until an area has been declared pest free.
We have therefore made Fraxinus excelsior and Fraxinus ornus seed unavailable to purchase on this web site until the situation changes.
