The English Garden Emporium presents the very finest British garden seeds in the world. Many of these English heirloom seed varieties make stunning presents and gifts for all occasions. We now feature Suttons Seeds, Garden gifts and helpful garden products.
Historically English Gardens have been much admired for their rare eclectic offerings of seeds and plants. Many of these rare seeds, especially perennials, were collected throughout the world by various adventurers seeking to introduce new varieties of climbers, trailers and scented seeds for growing and beautifying the English countryside. Many of the English annuals and English perennial seeds we buy today are direct descendents of the British heirloom flower varieties which our great grandparents grew in their Victorian gardens. More especially the scented varieties of sweet peas, stocks and lavenders.
The English Garden Emporium specializes in the importation of fine eclectic English gardening seeds featuring Suttons Seeds, quality garden help products, and a range of antique ephemera all from the birthplace of fine gardening – England. Many of our products are unique and not easily available to the North American gardener.
We are located in beautiful Manchester, Vermont. Cradled by the Green Mountains to the east, and the Taconic Mountains to the west, it is your quintessential New England town. A very beautiful town rich in history, steeped in lore, and the former summer home of the son of one of America’s most beloved presidents, Abraham Lincoln. Hildene, as the estate is known, has been completely restored, and provides visitors with breathtaking views and extraordinary gardens.
