We would encourage you if possible to order online

You'll get your seeds much faster, and you won't end up ordering things that are sold out by the
time your order reaches us (we have real time stock control on the shopping basket)

However, if you can't make the web site ordering work, then as an alternative you can order
by post with a cheque.

In this case you can ignore all the 'Add to cart' buttons on this site.

Instead, just click here for a printable order form

Print it out, write on it the codes of what you want, and post it to us with a cheque.

If you can't print the form, just write to us on plain paper. As long as we can read it,
and you include your address, we'll send your seeds!

People keep ordering things on this form that are clearly listed as unavailable.
So lets make this really clear: If it says 'sold out' or 'unavailable' on the website, that's what it means:
We really can't send you the seeds, even if you order them by post, because we don't have any of that item left!


P&P Charges for Postal Orders:

  • UK P&P is £1.96 for all postal orders.
  • Overseas orders can only be made via the website, sorry. See this page for the list of countries we can ship to.


  • Pay by Cheque (Pounds Sterling) to 'REAL SEEDS' - or cash notes of Pounds Sterling or Euros. (Bank of England notes only, please, we are in a very rural area, our local shops won't accept Scottish, Northern Irish etc notes and our bank is only open very limited hours, so it's hard to get in and swap them.)
  • No other currencies, eurocheques, international money orders etc
  • We CANNOT take credit/debit cards by post.
  • All seed requests are subject to our Terms and Conditions
  • If you want to send some seeds directly as a gift, no problem, just say so & we'll leave the invoice out, and write your message on the parcel - but order at least 20 days before you want them delivered!


The Real Seed Catalogue is produced by The Real Seed Collection Ltd , a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.
~ Company No 5924934 ~ VAT No 841181938 ~ DEFRA registered Seed Provider No 7289 ~

Our Unique Guarantee:
We think these are the best seeds you can sow.
We will immediately refund or replace if you are in any way less than delighted with them, even including the flavour of the resulting crop!

Due to daft seed laws, some rare veg seeds can only be supplied to members of our Seed Club. But membership costs just one penny per annum. When we process your order, you will be charged
a penny for a year's Seed Club Membership. For more details see our terms and conditions.

Gardeners Should Save their Own Seed:
Because none of these seeds are hybrids,
you can save your own seed for future use: there's no need to buy new each year.

Saving your own is easy. You will get great seed, and great vegetables adapted to your local conditions.
Do have a go - read the seedsaving instructions we provide with every order, and also on this site.

~ We have sent out over 65,000 sets of home seed-saving instructions!~
