What is The Urban Seed Lab?

The Urban Seed Lab is unique hybrid of a traditional plant nursery and a culinary herb/plant supplier to the restaurant trade, with a difference – we cultivate all plants to order.

Founded by an Oxford-trained, prizewinning organic chemist, along with his practising biochemist partner, the Urban Seed Lab is an urban laboratory specialising in the cultivation from seed of the healthiest, most resilient and- of paramount importance- most flavourful and aromatic culinary plants for both professional and domestic cooks, food lovers and gardeners.


Day-to-day, we undertake rigorous experimentation with seed types, germination, watering, feeding, lighting, grafting and propagation protocols. Plant strains are meticulously selected and re-tested for advantageous characteristics: hardiness, disease and pest resistance, aesthetics and- most importantly- intensity of flavour and aroma. Respect for the scientific principles of germination, cultivation and harvesting is paramount. The pursuit of taste is everything.


The culinary applications of our plants always take precedence; our in-house quondam chef and now restaurant consultant to Michelin-starred establishments throughout France tracks down rare breeds and niche plant strains to ignite the creativity of chefs and home-cooks alike. Flavour profiles are exhaustively catalogued; tasting notes are prepared with the utmost diligence, and the cumulative results of experiments in growing conditions are meticulously reviewed to ensure every plant is grow to its fullest potential.
