Vegetable Seeds for the Aussie Home and Market Gardener. Supplying popular and rare varieties of veggie, herb and flower seed packets.
Generous quantities of seed per packet.

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.

G’day Gardeners.Cygnet Market this Sunday Mar 19. This is likely the last market I will be fully stocked. I recommend you don’t delay too much longer getting the winter veg in before the sunlight backs off in April reducing plant growth. I will be at Franklin the following Sunday then two more Cygnet markets before I finish the seedling season (where has the time gone).I have plenty of Silverbeet, various Broccoli such as Purple Sprout, Green Sprout, Di Cicco, Marathon F1, Spigariello, Broccoletti), cauliflower, some Lettuce, Spring Onions, last leeks, Asian Greens (Mustards, Mizuna, Mibuna, Tatsoi, Komatsuna, Purple Choi Sum, Gai Lan, Wong Book, Pak Choi), Beetroot, Kale, Kolhrabi, Parsley, Celery, Dill, Chervil, Chicory, Cabbages, Coriander, Spinach and others.Seed saving is truly in force. Lettuce, Parsnip, Parsley, Broad Beans, Kohlrabi and various brassicas, Peas, some herbs and flowers, Carrot and others are done. Tomatoes are 75% done with way too many new varieties going up on . Capsicums and Zucchini are ongoing and chillies, eggplant, onions, leek, cucumber and melons are just starting or close. Next year I will need to take stock of the number of varieties and cutback as it is a bit too much for 1 solitary person!Fingers crossed it does not get too cold too quick.Hope to see you at market.Happy See MoreSee Less
