Giovanni Franchi started selling his seeds by horse-drawn cart in 1783, in the market squares of Parma. To this day, the Franchi family are still at the helm, and distributing their rigorously tested seeds around the world. A little different to those humble beginnings, but with 70% of their seeds coming from Italy still, the Franchi family can help you grow the very best produce from your gardens.
