To order the printed catalogueThis site contains essentially the same information as our printed catalogue. The big version from 2008 is now finished and we will instead send our 2012 mini-catalogue/variety list. However, the 2008 version can be downloaded for free below, as a PDF file or as a scrolling copy.
Variety List for 2012This year, we will not distribute a new "big catalogue", but only the current mini version - "the variety list". We intended to make a new big catalogue, both for spring 2011 and 2012. But uncertainties in the Swedish legislation relating to the seed trade are great now, after calls to sharpen the existing directives regarding allowed varieties and different control taxes. We do not yet know exactly what changes are coming. Which are the varieties we have to remove? How much seed are we allowed to sell of each variety? What size of the packages are we forced to use? What will our additional costs be? Much is still unclear. The exception we had in Sweden since 1998, relating to the strict EU directives, which enabled us to sell varieties that had not been registered in the EU, is definitely gone now!
So to print a new big catalogue, which may be outdated before it comes out, doesn't make sense.
Therefore, there is only the current 2012 mini catalogue/variety list available. If you want to know more about the varieties, or get some information about cultivation, or read about the history of the seeds, you'll find it here on this website, www.runabergsfroer.se, and in older "big" catalogues.
Our hope is to make a new big catalogue for 2013, to celebrate 30 years as an independent organic seed company; hopefully by then, the new directives are clear.
