Company Profile


MURAKAMI SEED began in 1953 Konosuke Murakami, the founder, worked to develop the local production of gladiolus bulbs in Ibaraki prefecture. By early 1970, the company grew up to the key wholesale base on business of several bulb crops for Dai-Ichi Seed Co., Ltd., while organizing the agricultural associations to modernize local bulb industry as a professional supplier.


By late 90s, with development of the bulb business, the company actively challenged to work on total agricultural service including seed, seedlings and many of related materials. The research station started in operation to conduct our own breeding program in 1988 and the first retail store, Hana Midori, opened in 1995 to access the market trend with consumers’ voices.


2002 was a landmark year for MURAKAMI SEED. The company acquired seed business division of Dai-ichi Seed and gained the seed products in broader range of cutflower, pot & bedding plant and miscellaneous ornamental stuffs, and then the position of a Japanese major wholesaler to work with leading and global seed breeders. Along with the acquisition, the company was reorganized and renovated.


Our active breeding programs; unique product lines like a seed-raised lilium formolongi or high-rating double matthiola varieties, besides major crops such as delphinium chinensis, lisianthus, matthiola, snapdragon, viola…, successfully continue in current century. MURAKAMI SEED is proud that the products are delivered to and grown by a lot of customers in worldwide.
