The Real Seed company




The Real Seed Catalogue has brought together what we think are the very best vegetable varieties in existence for the home gardener.

The name of the catalogue reflects what we are trying to preserve in the Seed Collection - real seeds for real gardeners wanting to grow proper vegetables.

You'll find no hybrids or genetically modified seed here - just varieties that do really well and taste great when grown by hand on a garden scale. Many are rare heirlooms, and all are open-pollinated (non-hybrid) so you can save your own seed for future years, using the instructions we supply
