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 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.

I have the advantage of germination testing my vegetable seeds year round as I germinate over 100,000 seeds for Dave’s Seedlings, and I understand the issues faced with low rates of germination.

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.

Note items will stay in the cart for 30 minutes after you leave. Please save your cart if you wish to keep it.
