Franchi Heirloom Seeds Canada presents

The Franchi Logo

We are temporarily suspending sales until our next shipment arrives from Italy. We have had unexpected interest in our Franchi Seeds this spring, and have suddenly sold out of our most popular things. Please stay tuned to this site and our Facebook page to hear about when our seeds are here. In the meanwhile, please visit the following retailers who are carrying our seeds this year: Fairway Markets on Vancouver Island, Integrity Sales on Keating X Rd in Victoria, BC, Devan Greenhouses in Aldergrove, BC, Blue Mountain Nursery in Armstrong, BC, Yukon Gardens in Whitehorse, YK, and the Irly Centre on Bowen Island, BC, and soon IGA in Gibsons, BC and Fresh St. Market in W. Vancouver, BC. Thank-you for your continued interest.

We are very happy to present ourself as your Canadian home and source of seeds from Franchi Sementi, a 7th generation-run, family business from Bergamo, northern Italy. We are a nationally online agent, as well as mail order agent from BC to Ontario and the Territories.

Franchi Sementi was formed in 1783 in the Po River valley, in Parma, Italy by Giovanni Franchi. He grew and collected seeds locally, and sold them from his cart in the squares and streets around the region. Now, his 7th generation son, Giampero Franchi, runs a modern company that has grown to be one of the largest seed companies in Italy. The combination of generations of tradition and skill, and modern innovation and technology, has enabled the company to grow and flourish. For over two centuries, Franchi Seeds has been selecting and saving the traditional varieties from around Italy, even maintaining relationships with some of their contract growers from generation to generation.

Through careful selection and high standards, Franchi Sementi has won awards nationally and internationally. The family keeps samples of their own selected lines in the Svaalbard Seed Vault in Norway.

  • Franchi seeds are NOT genetically engineered.

  • No seed is chemically treated

  • All are in hermetically sealed packets.
