  • We're here to help

    We supply organic seed wherever possible, and have been working with the Soil Association since the 1970s. For advice, please contact us on 01608 652552, or use the wealth of seed info on our site.

  • Seed for every situation

    We stock an extensive range of green manures to help improve soil and build fertility. For those in OELS we provide crops that promote biodiversity, restore habitats and recreate wildflower meadows.

  • Building Fertility With Legumes

    We also advocate the use of complex herbal mixes and traditional legumes such as white clover, lucerne and sainfoin which benefit animal health and soil fertility.

  • Animal forage

    Our mixes include productive red clover leys, grazing swards and root crops to provide high quality grazing and forage all year round.

  • Welcome to Cotswold Seeds

    We believe that good grass and forage starts with good seed. Established in 1974, our knowledge has been gained working with over 8,000 farmers and growers, a quarter of whom are in the organic sector.
