About Boston Seeds
Boston Seeds is an independent seed merchant founded in 2002 by Andrew Wallis, after 25 years working for some of Europe’s leading seed houses. Initially, trading as a traditional seed merchant, Boston Seeds was one of the pioneers to start selling grass seeds, lawn seeds and wildﬂower seeds on the internet.
The ﬁrst website was launched in 2003 achieving annual sales of £600, with a landmark in 2014 when annual online sales exceeded £1,000,000 for the ﬁrst time. The same Boston Seeds philosophy applies as much today as it did in 2003:
'Providing quality products, fit for purpose and at competitive prices. Customer service second to none.'
Facilities and Investment
Investment has followed the increase in both retail and trade sales, to consumer and businesses alike. A major improvement in service and product availability happened when the company established its own distribution centre in 2008 and acquired land for trials and product development in 2010. More recently, Boston Seeds have expanded both oﬃce and distribution facilities, including commissioning a temperature-controlled store for wildﬂower and specialist seeds.

Boston Seeds import products from around the world to ensure the most appropriate products are available at the most competitive prices. But, ever conscious of supporting British farmers and industry our exports usually exceed imports. We produce about 1000 hectares of seed crops in the UK each year, as well as crops in Europe, including Germany and Czech Republic. These crops are typically rye, triticale, linseed, vetch, white mustard, forage rape and oilseed rape. Boston Seeds aim to bring their customers the latest products and have acquired a signiﬁcant portfolio of product working with some of most successful breeders in the world and have UK Marketing Rights from a number of leading breeders.
