NO EXPORT TO EUROPE or NORTHERN IRELAND: After January 1st 2021 all seed that goes from UK to EU has to have a phytosanitary test. This makes it financially unviable to send small quantities of seed. Therefore we are removing the option for overseas sales until we can find out if small amounts are excluded from this requirement. Our apologies, we hope to be able to export again soon.
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.
Welcome to our shop! We use the same seed for retail customers as for wholesale – tested and stored in the same way, so that quality is assured. Results of seed counts and germination tests are available. Despatch days are TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY .
Please note that 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.
Tree & Shrub Seed (332)Tree and shrub seed from Forestart is mainly collected in the UK, from known sites or from our own seed orchards. Seed that is unavailable from Britain is imported from reputable companies and goes through the same rigorous germination and purity tests as the seed we collect ourselves.
Wildflower (99)Forestart collects a range of wildflower and grass seed directly from meadows throughout Britain
