Our commitment towards seeds is an effort to increase biodiversity. We fight for this because quality seeds must be available to everyone.

Seeds are resilient

Weleda select seeds for plants with the best qualities for medicinal products and cosmetics.

Not all seeds are equal

Loss of seed diversity leads to a decline in biodiversity - the food for plants and insects. In turn this impacts human wellbeing.

We always aim to use seeds from our own culture, or from trusted biodynamic seed producers.
Pierre Kappler Head Gardener, France & Switzerland

The Treasure of the Garden

Seeds are the beginning and end of everything that happens in the Weleda garden, which is why we respect and value quality seed varieties.

  • The German Weleda Garden are key contributors to Hortus Officinarum.

  • This is an association for biodynamic seeds of medicinal plants.

  • Running for over 11 years, the group brings together seeds supplied by farmers from across Europe.

  • The collective of farmers work together to increase the quality of all biodynamic farmers’ crops.

  • The best seeds are selected to support natures endeavours while keeping her wild.

  • All farmers commit to providing their best quality seeds to benefit the group, and in turn receive the best quality seeds too.
