Chiltern seeds are good for trees, shrubs and perennials. Of course it's slower but so satisfying. In 25 years I have Scots Pines and Field Maples as tall as the house, (no, it's not a bungalow), I have mature looking shrubs, Clerodendron, Chimonanthus, Ptelia, Tree Paeonies, Eleagnus. All from seed. I'm still sowing though it's getting a bit late for me to see them mature.
Another plus is that you can get something different to all the standard stuff in the GCs
