A Brief History
S.E. Marshall & Co. limited was founded over 75 years ago by Stanley Marshall in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. The company specialised in selling potatoes, onion sets, shallots, garlic, vegetable seeds and soft fruit to the home kitchen gardener – in fact, we sold more of these items than any other mail-order company of the time!
Quickly becoming famous for selling unique varieties, and over the years, the company expanded to bring other well-known names into the family: Unwins, the famous seed business founded in 1901 and Birds & Bees which specialises in wildlife food made from cereals grown by bird and bee-friendly farmers.
Having come a long way since Stanley Marshall founded his business, in February 2020, the next chapter to this story was born as these three much-loved names were brought together as one to create Marshalls.
