Chase Organic Seeds:
Deelish Garden Centre is the sole Irish Agent for Chase Organic Seeds.
“For over 50 years Chase Organic Seeds have been supplying high quality seeds that are suitable for organic gardening, tried and tested in our own gardens. In that time we have built up a balanced range.
Old Vegetable Varieties
Established before the advent of chemical fertilisers and pesticides, which often thrive in organic conditions. We show the date of introduction where we know it.
Newer Vegetable Varieties
Strong growing, uniform plants often able to resist or tolerate disease and pest attacks, particularly useful where there is no other means of control.
A comprehensive collection of herb seeds for culinary, medicinal and decorative use.
Flowers and Wild Flowers
we offer a wide range of varieties for beautiful displays and borders, for cutting, drying and to attract beneficial pollinators. Flowers form an important part of a balanced organic garden.
Green Manure Seeds
Plants grown to benefit your soil by adding key nutrients.
Seeds for producing home-grown, nutritious pulses and grains.
Genetically Modified Seeds and Plants
We do not sell, nor have we ever sold, genetically modified seeds or plant material.
Our seed range consists of both organic and non-organic seeds, defined as follows:
At Chase Organic seeds we produce seeds from plants grown to recognised organic standards. We use no chemicals either before or after harvest. All organic seeds in the catalogue are clearly marked with the “Organic” logo.
Coated organic seeds A few varieties that are used extensively by commercial growers are supplied to us with a chalky white coating on them to aid visibility against the soil or compost. It is organically certified and leaves no harmful residue.
Non-organic seeds are produced from plants grown by non-organic growers. No chemical treatments have been used or applied after harvest. Other seed suppliers may sell seed which has been given a coating of chemical to combat fungus or disease, but you can be sure that all our seed is supplied in its natural state. Organic gardeners have shown for many years that good results can be achieved without such treatments.
Why aren’t all our seeds organic?
Until recently, organically produced seed was very rare and using untreated non-organic seed was the only option for most organic growers. However, since then, the situation has improved. We now have many sources of organic seeds, many of which are available exclusively in the UK through The Organic Gardening Catalogue.
There are still gaps where no organic seed is available, and we aim is to fill these when we can. Until that time we will continue to offer high quality, non-organic seed of varieties that have been shown to perform well in organic gardens, providing our customers with the widest possible choice.”
