    A LITLE BIT OF HISTORY . . .

    Peter Hunter, the Managing Director, is the great grandson of James Hunter who came down from Scotland and founded his grass seed company in Chester in 1883. James Hunter was the first seedsman to guarantee the purity and germination of his seeds and we still have his original germination and purity of grass seeds records going back to September 1883.

    Moving on 141 years, much of farming and the grass seed industry have changed, not always for the best. However, Peter Hunter Seeds carries on the family tradition of offering the best varieties of grass seed and the best mixtures to suit every condition and requirement as well as still providing a personal service.
