Buying Seeds Online

March 20th, 2008 by Karsten

Buying seeds for your allotment plot is probably one of the more exciting tasks you get to do as an allotmenteer. Gone are all the tedious hard work of digging over your plot in preparation for the coming years crop and making plans where to plant them.

In the good old days you’d go to the garden center, a DIY store or even a supermarket at this point, but these days there’s a new option to go with! You can now buy your seeds online, straight from your favorite seed merchant.

Buying seeds online is easy, convenient and time-saving (for some of us anyway). In just a few seconds you get the entire catalogue from your favorite seed merchant up on the screen in front of you, and perhaps this is the number one reason for ordering your seeds off the internet.

In comparison to the high street shops, where you’ll only find the mainstream crops, you can get every variety you can imagine online. Have you ever seen “Broad Bean Red Epicure” seeds in the shops? No? Well - you’ll get them online - along with a great selection other fruits and vegetables, not to forget bulbs, flowers, herbs and allotment “hardware” such as nettings, cloches, plant supports, watering systems etc., all in one place.

I have bought my seeds and plants online over the past few years, and there’s no way I would do it any different this year. Here at we recommend the following online seed merchants: Dobies, Suttons and Unwins Seeds. All these seed merchants are main players in the UK market, they have been supplying allotment plotholders with seeds for years, and all of them are known for outstanding customer service.
