With over 25 years experience of supplying seed, we have built an exceptionally skilled team.

Our unique expertise and processes ensure that the need for outstanding quality and service from our customers is met and exceeded.  

 

Buy online 

For retail customers, there is our online shop. Here you can buy tree
and wildflower seed of the same high quality that our professional nurserymen demand. We despatch
worldwide. Exports outside the E.U often require phytosanitary certificates which we can arrange
at an additional cost. Please contact us if this applies.

 

Wholesale 

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.

 


  

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 that are particularly bee friendly and 
attractive to other insects, please see below.

 Ash Dieback - Chalara fraxinea
On 29th October 2012, the UK government introduced legislation to protect our Ash trees from
the threat of this fungal disease. There is, effectively a ban on imports of ash plants and seed.
There is also a ban on movement of plants and seed within the UK until an area has been
declared pest free.
