~ Our 2018 Vegetable Seed List ~

( the new 2019 catalogue will be here this coming November )

Rated 'Best Buy'
by Ethical Consumer Magazine

Welcome! Our heirloom and heritage vegetable seeds are specially chosen for home gardeners.
Over the past 19 years we've collected the very best varieties for you to grow.

You'll find no F1 hybrids or genetically modified seed here - just varieties that do really well and taste great
when grown on a garden scale - a catalogue of real seeds for real gardeners wanting to grow proper vegetables.

Because all are open-pollinated (non-hybrid) , you can even save your own vegetable seed
for future years, using the instructions we supply. There's no need to buy new seed every year!

Sow for winter as well as summer!

Make sure you plan your plot to keep a good supply of food coming through the autumn and into the winter.
Have a look at our Summer Sowing Guide and Autumn/Winter sowing guide for seeds you can sow now to harvest for the cooler months.

It's a great time to sow lots of the oriental greens, broccoli raab, and tasty mustard greens

For more detailed sowing plans throughout the year, we have a month-by-month guide.

The tree onions are harvested and ready to go now - a fun addition to your herb patch or perennials bed.

How We Are Different

We're a bit different from other places you might get seed from.
We also grow these veg for our own use at home, so we really know how they grow & how they taste.

And we only offer what we know is really good, rather than listing lots of different varieties just for the sake of it.
Most importantly, every vegetable here has been chosen - from hundreds of trials - for a particular reason , which we try to explain in the description.

The website is designed and maintained by us personally - so it has been written by gardeners, for gardeners.
We want it to be easy to see what each vegetable does, how it grows, and when to sow it.

We really do hope you enjoy these vegetables as much as we have enjoyed tracking them down and trying them out.
Each and every one has been chosen for its merit in the kitchen as well as the garden.

Our aim is to offer you the very best seed of the best vegetable varieties we can find!

- best wishes for a great season from Ben, Kate, Catherine, Tam & Ian
