Founded in 1806 by John Sutton in Reading, ‘House of Sutton’ began by selling corn. When John’s sons joined the company in 1832, the business began to expand into the flower and vegetable seed industry. They quickly became the first seed house to supply pure, unadulterated seed in the UK and now the name Sutton is known all over the world. After the acquisition of nurseries to produce seeds, seedlings and small plants for sale, a decision was made to create a laboratory to test their own seeds and improve. The company were proud to receive Royal patronage in 1858, at the request of Queen Victoria to provide seeds to the Royal household. This honour has been testament to the firm’s success and has been supported up to the present day. Currently, many parts of the world are involved in the production of flowers and seeds for Suttons, in order to maintain supplies all year round. In 1976 the company made the move to Devon, where they reside today. More about the history of Suttons can be found in their informative history book, available online.

They have amazing quality in seeds and also the team helped me in understanding which one is best and for what. Apart from that they also make sure that i get my answers, so big salute to the customer support!
Bought July last year for a good mixture in our garden, followed instructions as per packets, at least 10 of them some we had no yield at all, and the few that did grow they were hardly enough to plant out, Having bought other flower and veg seeds from another company the difference was amazing I have emailled Suttons 3 times and had no reply. I am disgusted with their product and customer service. The order was delayed as well. DO NOT BUY FROM SUTTONS is my advice. I would not give any star rating if possible
Order placed 7/3, email stating est. dispatch 8/3. Order processed 11/3. Rang customer services order within 14 working days, web site states delivered within 14 days (not working) so one is a lie. Order dispatched 24/3, delivered 29/3. this is my last order and would recommend others shop elsewhere.
