~ Our 2017 Vegetable Seed List ~

Rated 'Best Buy'
by Ethical Consumer Magazine

Welcome! Our heirloom and heritage vegetable seeds have been specially chosen for home gardeners.
Over the past 17 years we've collected the very best vegetable 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 by hand 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!

We hope you enjoy all the new seeds we have for you this year.

Have a look at our new varieties page for a quick list of things we've added for 2017.

Best wishes, Ben & Kate

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 (with lots of help from Catherine, Tam & Ian)
