Seed and Potato Requests

Close-up down in brown paper pouches filled with peas.The best way to preserve genetic diversity is to use it. The Nordic seed collection is no exception. Therefore, NordGen sends out about 10.000 seed samples annually to scientists, plant breeders, companies, museums, botanical gardens and home gardeners with an interest in old cultural plants.

Seed orders are distinguished between orders for scientific purposes and orders from private users.

Scientific Purposes

Scientific purposes include researchers, plant breeders, botanical gardens, museums and others who request seeds or potatoes from NordGen’s collection in their professional role. These orders can be made all year round.

Seed Orders for Scientific Purposes

Hobby Growers

But even home gardeners who are interested in preserving old cultural varieties by growing them in their garden, on their balcony or in a window sill are welcome to order seeds from us in the spring.
