Forestart is the premier supplier of quality tree and shrub seeds, based in the UK. With 23 years experience of supplying seed we have built an exceptionally skilled team. Our unique expertise and processes ensure that our customerís demands for outstanding quality are met and exceeded.
For retail customers, there is our online shop. Here you can buy seeds of the same high quality that our professional nurserymen demand. We dispatch worldwide. Exports outside the EU often require phytosanitary certificates that we can arrange at an additional cost. Please contact us if this applies.
Please note that new orders will not now be dispatched until the week commencing the 5th of January.
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
This time of year we are primarily focused on dispatch and gearing up for the new collection season so there are minimal stock additions until later in the season.
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.
