Seeds

You can source open pollinated Organic & Biodynamic seeds here
seedcooperative.org.uk
You must use Organic seeds when available. You can check UK availability here Organicxseeds.co.uk
If the seeds are not available as Organic you can fill in the derogation form below and send it to us, note we then need approval from DEFRA, so please allow time for this process, and do not purchase seeds before you receive approval.
