Charles Sharpe & Co. Ltd.

In 1888 Charles Sharpe established a company of seed merchants in his home town of Sleaford, Lincolnshire.

The firm grew to become a major seed company in the UK, with several warehouses and a seed processing plant in Sleaford.

Following the death of Charles Sharpe in 1897, the business was taken over by a company director called Robert Coy. The company stayed in the hands of various members of the Coy family until 1986 when it was acquired by Advanta Seeds.
