We are an independent seed specialist business based in Scotland. We supply estates, farms and crofts across Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland either directly or through our network of appointed agents and distributors.
The business has strong links with leading plant breeders and variety trialling organisations, enabling Watson Seeds to supply the latest grass varieties and the best advice to meet the tough challenges of today’s farming environment.
As the agricultural supply trade gets into fewer and fewer hands a national privately owned seed retailer is becoming something of a rarity. Whilst embracing all the technological advances in the industry we are committed to the traditional values of personal service, sound advice and seed of the highest possible quality.
Johnny Watson formed John Watson Seeds Ltd. after having worked with Sinclair McGill throughout Scotland and England. For three generations his family has been committed to serving farmers as seed specialists from the early days of McGill & Smith, and now as Watson Seeds. We will serve you as well as we are able.

Having worked in the seed trade across the country, Johnny returned to Scotland back in 1991 to establish a business to focus on offering top quality grass seed mixtures, backed up with personal service with sound advice. This commitment continues throughout the company to this day.
