Why buy from Sea Spring Seeds

As vegetable growers who appreciate good eating, our mission is to sell vegetable seeds of reliable, productive and good tasting varieties that we like to grow ourselves. With dozens of seed companies in the UK, why should you buy your vegetable seeds from Sea Spring Seeds? The answer is really quite simple:


  • Testing

Every variety we sell we have grown and tasted ourselves. We run trials on our nursery and also ask other gardeners to try out promising varieties. Testing is an on-going process, and trials are done every year so that we are continuingly making improvements to the selection on offer in our catalogue.

  • Experience

We have both been in the growing business for over thirty-five years. Since 1989 we've run our own nursery in West Dorset, selling vegetables to both local and national markets.

  • Unique varieties

We are plant-hunters and breeders, always on the lookout for new and exceptional varieties. Some – such as Dorset Naga, one of the world’s hottest chillies – are already in our catalogue, while others will be available in the future. Check the seed shop for varieties currently available.


After all, why grow an ordinary vegetable when you can grow an outstanding one?
