Kings Seeds was established in 1888 in Kelvedon, Essex, UK. Since then, we have become a leading seed supplier with a comprehensive range of vegetable seeds, flower seeds, herb seeds, organic seeds and gardening sundries.
We supply seed to commercial growers of flowers and vegetables, wholesale to large users of seed and to the home gardener through our seed packets. We are now unique in that Kings is the last surviving wholesale horticultural seed merchant in the country.
We are also Britain's biggest sweet pea producer for the home gardener. Many of our sweet peas are grown on our own farm in Essex, where we select an maintain seed stock. We have over 100 varieties of sweet pea seeds available to buy online.
Essex has been the centre of English seed production for many centuries. Its climate and rainfall are ideal for raising plants and taking them through the growing cycle to obtain the highest quality of seed.
At certain times of the year, we also have garlic bulbs, seed potatoes, shallot and onion sets, flower bulbs, soft fruit and fruit trees and vegetable plug plants available to buy too.
There have been many changes over the hundred years of our company's existence and there will be many more in the next hundred but quality of the highest standard is one thing that has never changed at Kings and never will in the future.
