About Florabunda Seeds
Florabunda Seeds is dedicated to preserving old species of flowers and vegetables, many of which are the parents of today's modern hybrids. These are the flowers of English cottage gardens of the past, species such as hollyhocks, cosmos, foxglove, calendula, asters, zinnias, flax and cone flower.

Florabunda Seeds has grown into one of the largest suppliers of Victorian Cottage Flower seeds.

Florabunda Seeds has grown into one of the largest suppliers of Victorian Cottage Cottage Garden Flower Seeds.Cottage garden seeds were salvaged from abbeys and monasteries in England in the middle ages. Others were brought back to Britain by plantsmen who were sent out on plant-hunting expeditions around the world.

Modern planting breeding and hybridization have turned the public's eye away from many of our precious heirloom flowers, including the original species and the old, named heirloom varieties.

By preserving and circulating these seeds, we help maintain a strong genetic plant base, thus ensuring their survival.

Our flower and vegetable seeds have a long and colourful history. In planting Florabunda seeds, you play a part in not only continuing the history of heirloom seeds, but of adding to the history with your own gardening stories.

Annuals, Biennials and Perennials

Annuals are plants which complete their life cycle, flowering and going to seed in their first year. They have the longest bloom season.

Biennials grow strong plants in their first season which bloom in their second season and self-seed, then die providing their own replacements for the next year. They are self perpetuating.

Perennials' leaves die back in winter and renew growth each spring. Some bloom first year from seed and others start in their second year. They often live for decades. Bloom time is generally shorter.

We want you to have a successful and enjoyable experience with the seed we supply. Suggestions, photos, stories and seed samples are welcome. (We will exchange seeds with you if you send us some!)

"The love of gardening is
a seed that once sown never dies"

Gertrude Jekyll, English plantswoman.

"Earth laughs in flowers"
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hamatraya 1847

"The smell of violets, hidden in the green
Pour'd back into my empty soul and frame
The times when I remembered to have
been Joyful and free from blame."

Alfred, Lord Tennyson
