For the most traceable heirloom seed with guaranteed germination and purity, buy Franchi Sementi seed from The Italian Gardener. With new lines and newly arrived stock we have over 200 different herbs and vegetable varieties available. Beautifully presented FRANCHI seed packets come with up to 3 times the quantity in each packet compared to other seed companies, and in some cases over 10 times as much for relatively the same price. FRANCHI seed is GMO free, pesticide and insecticide free.
For over 15 years The Italian Gardener has sold vegetable and herb seed from FRANCHI Sementi SPA, one of the largest seed producers in Italy, a family owned business since 1783. Italians are very particular about their vegetables. For more than 230 years, FRANCHI have won the support of gardeners in Italy and around the world by offering a range of heirloom varieties, selected for their taste rather than “supermarket” characteristics of transportability, long storage and uniformity. Franchi vegetables deliver on quality and flavour.
'Magnum' a line of larger seed packets have been introduced for some seed varieties and are excellent value for small-scale growers. These packets contain about three times the amount of seed for twice the cost of normal packets. Bulk varieties are available in certain lines. Please email me on email@example.com and I will see what I can do.
Maggie Beer - "Not only do they have all the specialist herbs and vegetables I've come home hankering for after trips to Italy,but when I plant their seeds in my garden in the Barossa Valley, the result is exactly what I remember seeing in markets in Tuscany."
