European law currently prevents the import of seeds from outside Europe. Organic and heirloom seed providers in the USA and UK are therefore not available to us in Spain, due to well-meaning but unhelpful legislation. There are of course seed companies in Europe, and so here's a list of some that we've heard of. Some are in Spain, and the others should be able to send seeds to Spain. We've not dealt with many of them; this information is given in good faith but we don't know for sure what any of them are able to offer. Any feedback is always welcome. If you know of other suppliers, or have any other suggestions, information or comments, please let us know! Thanks.
