We use the same seed for retail customers as for wholesale – tested and stored in the same way, so that quality is assured. We are, however, unable to provide certificates or specific batch information for any seed sold through the website. If you require certification please contact us for more information about wholesale. Seed sold on our website is not for forestry use.


PLEASE NOTE: Seed packs are prepared by weight. The seed count quoted is therefore only approximate. Different batches vary, and seeds, even from the same species, differ in size. We try to average out seed number per weight, but with the number of products we despatch, this isn’t always possible.


We no longer export small quantities of seed outside of the UK mainland

Since January 2021 all seed that is for export has to be accompanied by a phytosanitary certificate. The additional workload and the cost of the certificate makes it uneconomical both for overseas customers and for ourselves.  We have therefore removed the ability to enter overseas addresses at the check-out step of ordering so please don’t spend time adding items to your basket only to find you can’t complete you order.

If you are an overseas nursery/customer requiring larger quantities of seed please do get in touch and we will do our best to meet your requirements.

Export to other World Zones:  Before ordering seeds for sending overseas, please ensure that all customs clearances and permissions are in place, including phytosanitary/health certificate requirements. Please inform us of what is necessary, since we cannot be responsible for imports prevented by lack of the above if we are unaware.
