Welcome to Sea Spring Seeds

Weeding lettuce trial at Sea Spring Seeds
All varieties are tried, tested and tasted by us on our nursery in West Dorset.

We sell vegetable seeds of reliable, productive and good tasting varieties that are suitable for the home and allotment garden. In our search for the best varieties we run trials on our nursery in West Dorset, where we assess their growing qualities (yield, bolt resistance, etc.), and culinary features such as flavour and general utility.

Vegetables seeds

  •  We are best known for our great selection of chilli peppers. Many are hard-to-find or unique varieties bred by us for British conditions. Dorset Naga, one of the hottest chillies in the world, was developed by us.
  • We specialise in tomatoes, and offer an extensive range of tomato types, colours and sizes.
  • We promote ‘Easy Peasy Gardening’, for time-stressed adults, children and anyone without a garden.
  • We sell British ethnic vegetables – varieties collected from immigrant communities.

Cardiff Queen chilli plant
“Cardiff Queen” chilli plants produce masses of green ripening to red chillies.

This autumn we have introduced five new chilli varieties.

Pixie Lights chilli plant
“Pixie Lights” is a beautiful, edible ornamental chilli.

Pixie Lights (hot) and Cardiff Queen (mild) –  are brand new varieties that were bred by us. (We are very proud of these, and think they are fantastic varieties.)

Then there is Early Cayenne, which (as far as we know) is exclusive to us; Fruity Volcano, a very exciting new habanero; and Roxi, a beautiful, compact chilli.

We recommend trying them all!
