Where to find heritage/ heirloom seeds
When you grow plants from heritage (also known as heirloom) seeds, you're growing a piece of the past. Generations of gardeners will have carefully collected and saved these seeds - something that rarely happens today. By growing heirloom plants, and saving your own seeds, you're protecting plant biodiversity - and growing something fun!

The Heritage Seed Library
Saving heritage seeds in the UK
Garden Organic, the UK's organic gardening charity, run the Heritage Seed Library (HSL). The HSL doesn't sell seeds - it gives them away to members each year. The aim of the HSL is to conserve and distribute heritage vegetable varieties, some of which were once popular and some of which are family heirlooms - passed down through generations. They also have some unusual plants to try.

The Real Seed Catalogue
The best vegetable seeds for the Kitchen Garden
The Real Seed Catalogue is a small UK-based seed company that doesn't want to get any larger! They only supply seeds from open-pollinated varieties, so you can save your own seed each year. They'd rather you do that than come back and buy your seed from them each year, and so they make detailed seed saving instructions available on their website, and send them out with each packet of seed.
