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.
