Kings Seeds, a leading supplier of horticultural essentials to both the home gardener and commercial grower, has a rich history that dates back to 1888. They played an integral role in Rotech’s journey when they purchased the first ever off-line feeding system 19 years ago. Kings Seeds continues to invest in Rotech’s coding solutions and remains a loyal customer to this day.
Originating from Coggeshall, but now in Kelvedon, Essex, Kings Seeds are surrounded by acres of beautiful farmland and a sea of their world-famous sweet peas. There are glimpses of the company’s history scattered across the premises, from 150-year-old agricultural machinery to vintage measuring tools still used today – a stark contrast to the new industrial equipment brought in to streamline production.
Coggeshall used to be the UK capital for seed-growing, and their football team are aptly named “The Seed Growers.” Kings Seeds has had an enormous impact on the local community. Lots of the team are residents, with some working at the company for over 50 years. As a result, Kings Seeds have established themselves as a home-grown, authentic UK business, trusted for their quality and expertise.
In their warehouse sits an extensive seed portfolio, including many old favourites and unique new varieties of vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs. This impressive range, along with their impeccable customer service has led them to win many gold awards, such as best fruit and veg seed range and best online retailer in 2021.
