All gene banks commit to making their material available for researchers and other stakeholdes. But the Nordic countries have also decided to make their seeds available for the general public. This is the reason why we each year open our webshop for hobby growers.


As usual, our webbshop will open in the spring. But already now, until the 16th of December, you have a unique possibility to support NordGen’s work and at the same time receive seeds to give away as a Christmas present. For 250 SEK you get a gift certificate and two kinds of vegetable seeds from a Nordic country of your choosing. You can also choose a package with seeds from each Nordic country, then the text on the gift certificate will be in English. This package comes to a cost of 449 SEK.

Here you can find the Christmas webshop.

By ordering seeds from NordGen webbshop, you contribute to preserving our genetic diversity and also have the opportunity to grow a crop no longer commercially available.

Each seed holds a history. We have tried to supply a few facts on its origin when possible.
