New flower seed varieties

Orange and yellow antirrhinum

Every year, our expert team scours the globe for new and exciting flowers. All of the seeds they discover are tested in our onsite lab, before being thoroughly put through their paces at our trial grounds. Only once we’re satisfied that the seeds are high quality, easy-to-grow and resistant to disease will we consider adding them to our carefully curated range. Many of the new flowers that eventually make it to our collection are actually several years in the testing. 

Ready to spice up your garden this summer with unusual blooms from our new flower seed range? Whether it’s an improved version of an old favourite, a striking new colour, or something entirely unique, we’re sure to have something to pique your interest.
