About Suttons Seeds
Established in 1806, the Suttons Seeds brand has consistently led the way in supplying the very best flower and vegetable seed varieties of the highest quality. As a subsidiary company of Vilmorin Clause & Cie, the largest packet seed group in the world, Suttons remains one of the UK’s market leaders, with UK sales to garden centre retailers, supermarkets and DIY multiples and direct to consumers by mail-order. The Suttons brand became hugely successful internationally during the 19th and 20th centuries and, in more recent times, we have built up distribution in many new markets.
Holders of the Royal Warrant – as suppliers to British Royal Households
Total commitment to both quality and service excellence has been the key to Suttons Seeds remarkable history. We are privileged to have held the prestigious Royal Warrant since 1858 and still supply seeds to several British Royal Households today!
Product development awards – Where Suttons leads, others follow!
In addition to Suttons Seeds extensive range of packet seed (over 950 varieties!), we have diversified over recent years in response to market trends and recognised consumer demand. We have successfully developed many new product ranges targeted at different market sectors and have achieved great success Eg. Our Suttons Seed Tapes and Mats, aimed at consumers with little time to spare or not so nimble fingers; our Beginner Gardener’s Seed Collection aimed and novice and beginner gardeners.
Following the launch of Suttons Rapid Green Lawn Seed several years ago, the Company has achieved great success and recognition with New Product Awards from both GIMA and Glee. These focused on the innovation and consumer benefits of Rapid Green being the first ever pouch pack of lawn seed and the special blend of grasses and seed coating which enable faster germination and establishment. Since then we have also won GIMA awards for our ‘For Your Space‘ Seed Collection and Grafted Vegetable Plants.
