Our carefully selected range of flower and vegetable seed for the 2016 season is now available. In this blog I’ll concentrate on the exciting new vegetable seeds that have been added to the collection. Details of the new flower range will follow shortly.

Based on the average seed prices charged in 2015 by other major seed suppliers Dobies vegetable seed proved to be up to 41% cheaper for comparable varieties. Combine that with the fact that in November 2014 Which? gave us the top 5-star rating  in terms of value and you can feel very confident buying all of your seed from us for the 2016 season and beyond.
