Welcome to the UK Native Seed Hub
The UK Native Seed Hub aims to enhance the resilience and coherence of the UK’s ecological network by increasing the quality, quantity and diversity of native plants and seeds available for conservation and habitat restoration.
We will do this by:
- Providing high quality UK native plant material for conservation and habitat restoration use.
- Supporting UK native seed and plant producers, conservation organisations and others through the provision of training, technical advice and research.
- Building awareness and demand for best practice habitat restoration and conservation using high quality UK native plant materials.

Request high quality seed
Our upcoming online trading platform will offer access to high quality native seed for use in UK conservation and habitat restoration projects.
We collect and grow high quality seed of rare or difficult to source native species and are working to make these and other UK native seed collections stored in the Millennium Seed Bank available for conservation and habitat restoration use. About the online trading platform (coming soon).
