A great deal of expertise, time and energy is spent creating and maintaining our comprehensive flower seed range with much of it being completed at least a year in advance. The world is scoured for exciting new varieties which are then tested in our onsite laboratory and grown on at our nearby trial grounds to check for ease of growing, trueness to type, quality, etc. Only when we are completely satisfied will we consider adding a variety to our range.
Our 2016 seed range is now complete and is available both online and in our 2016 Seed Catalogue. It includes a good mix of exciting new varieties and old much-loved favourites.
