Vegetable Seeds for the Aussie Gardener. Supplying popular and rare varieties of veggie, herb and flower seed packets. Generous quantities of seed per packet.
I have a passion for seeking and saving seed of varieties that perform for the home gardener, whether they be new or old.

Dave’s Seed supplies Heirloom, Open Pollinated and Hybrid vegetable, herb and flower seed packets. I aim to grow as much vegetable seed as I can muster from my 5 acre property based 5 minutes out of the lovely Cygnet, Tasmania and to seek out the best seed varieties from around the world to enhance the veggie gardening experience for Australian gardeners.

I also operate Dave’s Seedlings which is found at the local markets supplying organically grown vegetable, herb and flower seedlings focusing on Tasmanian cool climate vegetable gardening.

The bulk of the tomato, chilli, capsicum, eggplant and lettuce seed offered is home grown as well as a number of other seeds. Home grown seed is marked organically grown seed. 

Vegetable Seed Packets and Seedlings (August to April) are available at local markets and can be collected from my home. Seed Packets are sent to all Australian States except Western Australia at this time. I enjoy a good chat about gardening and am always happy to wander about the veggie garden with customers.

Seed Saving is almost finished now for next seasons Tomatoes. All the varieties available are now on the website (except maybe  a couple more dwarf toms). Chilli and Capsicums are all done except a birds eye and Shishito chilli. There are a few more seeds to be dried (Zucchini, Eggplant, Corn, onions and herbs) however the bulk if the seed is now available.

Growing Brussels Sprouts in Tasmania

Growing Brussels Sprouts in Tasmania I am an avid fan of what seems to be the controversial Brussel Sprout.

Brussel sprouts galore. Wouldn’t mind some more frosts to add more sweetness. Winter density cos lettuce, blue solaise leek, purple cauliflower forming, the spinach patch being trimmed weekly and the azur star kohlrabi which is ready to eat, but these plants are for seed saving.Easy gardening at the moment😊Davewww.davesseed.com See MoreSee Less

I have obtained seed of these two beauty cosmos. Can’t wait to plant out in spring and save loads of seed so everyone can plant them. Cosmos ‘apricotta’ and ‘xanthos’. Will have a few seedling trays in September as well.The last is called simply perennial capsicum. First year of growing this 1.5m tall beast and saving seed today. Will see how it fares over winter in the hothouse.Happy growingDavewww.davesseed.com See MoreSee Less
