I purchased some bean seeds to grow butter beans. The box was sturdy and I planted the beans in root trainers. These were then planted out. They grew really well but was unsure when to harvest the pods. A call to Paulo at Seeds of Italy UK was all I needed. He told me to harvest the beans when the pods are yellow. I had a bumper crop and will be growing these again instead of runner beans. Delicious in stews, soups or as an accompaniment to a meal. Just remember to soak the beans first in cold water for approx 8 hours or they will take hours to cook.

I've been ordering some of my seeds from them for several years. They don't carry everything I choose to grow, but I've begun saving some of my own tomato and pepper seeds recently,

Looking at how few reviews are here, i just want to add that you do NOT have to wait for your seeds to come from Great Britian. DON'T be afraid to order from them. My seeds were shipped VERY quickly and directly from the U.S.A. distributor. You do not have to pay overseas postage or wait for your order.
I just looked it up and see the following at GrowItalian.com: "Franchi didn't have an agent in the U.S., so Bill started importing the seeds and reselling them. For the next decade, Seeds from Italy grew rapidly under Bill's enthusiastic ownership. You can watch Bill on the Martha Stewart Show talking about his favorite Italian vegetables."
I am so impressed with the seeds and think they deserve way better exposure on Dave's Garden Watchdog!

Great company! Packages contain tons of seeds. Had fast germination and the varieties were ones that you can't find normally here in the states. I loved the Pomodoro Consoluto Fiorentino, my new favorite tomato! I highly recommend this company.

A great company to buy seed from and I have bought from then for 2 years now. They always deliver speedily and don't sell in tens as with most companies - you get hundreds of seed for you money. Also prices are really reasonable. I will be ordering from them always.

Unbelievable speed! I ordered the evening of Jan 26 and had seeds in hand the morning of Feb 5... that was quicker than I get my domestic orders! Packages are very well done and the seeds look good. Easy web-site to navigate and many hard to find varieties. These folks seem to care about their product.

Have ordered seeds from these folks for the last two years. They are nicely packaged and healthy first class seed. We have tried a variety of their vegetable seed and will be ordering again this year.
