EU addresses

It is with great sadness and frustration that we have to inform all our customers that due to Bexit we cannot send orders to the EU.

It is possible that sometime in the future ‘equivalence’ of regulations will be agreed and the law will allow seed to be sent to the EU. However, we have had no idea when – or even if – this might happen.

In reality, though, even with equivalence we may still encounter a problem. With the UK out of the EU there is now a ‘plant health border’ between the trading partners. So if/when we get equivalence the EU may still insist on a phytosanitary certificate to accompany all seed sent to the EU. For us, sending out small retail seed packs the paperwork would be enormous, and simply would NOT be a viable option.

Brexit is also the reason we can no longer offer several of our very popular varieties, especially tomato and pepper varieties. It has become very difficult for EU seed companies to export seed to the UK, and after lots of difficulties, several companies have stopped sending seed to the UK.


Rest of the world

We no longer accept orders on our website from any overseas address. With the loss of our EU customers it is no longer worthwhile keeping a contract with our delivery company for overseas deliveries.

In addition, there has been a general move for countries to become stricter regarding importing retail packs of seed, and it has become too difficult for us to keep up with all the regulations of each individual country. However, if anyone is very keen to buy our seed, or in fact, any gardening sundry that we sell, please contact us by email ( We are keen to help out wherever we can.

We will first ask you to check on your country’s regulations. If it is legal to import small seed packs of the species of vegetable you are interested, we are happy to send the seed.
