All you need to know about using our online catalogue:

Minimum Order is £8 + P&P

The shopping cart system is provided by RomanCart.
Your basket can be left for 1 hour before it clears itself. Sorry but we can't change that.

All seed requests are subject to our Terms and Conditions

  1. Delivery Times
  2. Paying by card
  3. UK P&P
  4. Foreign Orders
  5. Postal Orders
  6. Paper Catalogues - no more!

Delivery times within the UK:
We send out your order as sson as possible, and aim to get your seeds to you within 10 days, usually sooner.
We don't ever take orders in advance and then send them out later in the season.


Paying by Card:
Your card will be processed by Sagepay.

This is a well-known, secure online card processor,
approved by our bank ( The Cooperative Bank).

It is safe - we don't ever see your card details,
just a credit to our account with a list of what seeds you bought.


P&P charges for UK orders:

We are trying to find the fairest way to cover card fees and shipping costs without overcharging you.

Standard UK P&P: £2.20
Orders including tubers: £3.50

We reduce these rates to 70p / £2.50
if you are low-waged or unwaged.


EU orders - stopped due to Brexit.

We sadly cannot ship to Europe any more.
As we have left the EU, every order would require official inspection and testing at a cost of £150 even if we were registered for it, which we are not.


No orders to USA or Other Countries outside Europe!
We're really sorry but we cannot ship outside Europe.
By the way, for all the confused Americans who still keep trying to order seeds, you are not in Europe.

Disappointed we can't send seed to you?
Here are some other excellent suppliers to try instead:

It really is better to buy seeds locally within your country - they will be selected to do well
in your climate, rather than ours, and you will be supporting local businesses.

Some particular companies that we know of who offer a good range of locally grown open pollinated seeds include

Ireland - Brown Envelope Seeds
and also the Irish Seed Savers Association

France - Biau Germe seed cooperative
and of course Kokopelli

Spain - Plantaromed - ecologically grown seeds produced near Málaga

Austria - Reinsaat seeds
Germany - Bingenheimer seeds

Excellent seed in the United States - try our friends at Adaptive Seeds or Seedsavers Exchange


Ordering by Post

We no longer accept postal orders.
The only way to order seeds is online via the website.


PAPER CATALOGUES

catalogue pictureWe're sorry, but our last paper catalogue was in 2014, this is sad (the paper catalogue was really nice), but fewer and fewer people had been using the paper version, and it is a huge project producing and maintaining it each year.

This website also works very much better with our rare and limited stock seed, as we can have real time stock control,meaning that you shouldn't (at least in theory!) be disappointed by ordering something that is sold out.
