Wanted: Gorse Seeds

Maybe someone here can help me. I am desperately looking for gorse seeds. I have been looking everywhere but without any luck. So this being my last resort I hope someone has some that they don't need.

I do have rhubarb seeds in exchange for gorse seeds or just name your price.

Does it grow "wild" in Sweden? I'll keep a look out for them, but can't promise anything - let you know if I find any.

Are you allowed to post seeds to other countries?

But damn it how happy we'll be!

No, sadly it does not grow wild in Sweden. I have hoped for it but we have not found any, that's why I am so desperate to find it.

Yes, you are. I have received and sent a lot of seeds from the UK, Ireland, USA and many other countries. :flower:

I can send you some.
I have a huge gorse bush down the far end of my land, it's in full bloom now so you may have to wait for a week or two.

Most people try to get rid of gorse, but I can tolerate one bush as it nearly always has a flower on it, even in mid winter.
And it has a lovely vanilla scent on a hot day.

Seeds are OK, certainly between EU countries anyway, but growing plants are not allowed without a phytosanitary certificate.
