Franchi Seeds

Fruit & veg, Plants & flowers

Seeds of Italy is a seventh generation, family-run business, with roots stretching back as far as 1782. For two weeks, they’re popping up in the Market Hall with a dedicated seed stall offering traditional Mediterranean varieties of flowers and vegetables—many of which are recommend by the RHS as ‘perfect for pollinators’, for their insect-attracting properties—organic edible flowers, chillies and herbs, as well as Slow Food and regional produce: from Galician Padrón peppers and Neapolitan parsley, to Kelvedon peas and basil from Portofino.
