Southland Seed Savers Network


Southland Seed Savers Network

Established in 1999 we are working to keep a living network of seeds that do well in Southern New Zealand.  We hold seed saving courses twice a year.

We really need more seed savers in Southern NZ.

Hi all, I'm trying a few seeds saving groups as I'm looking for some particular Corn seeds to purchase - Silver Platinum. Appreciate any help.

Hi everyone, I'm obnoxiously commenting on every seed-saving group I can find, so please forgive double postings. I'm looking for 'Siberian' and 'Siberian Giant' tomato seeds, but can only find them in international catalogues, & NZ has strict import restrictions on solanaceae seeds due to the risk of disease. I'm hoping someone has them somewhere!!!

PS - As the names would suggest, these are good tomatoes to get into circulation in the South, as they cope well with cold temperatures!

sorry not that I know of!
We are hoping to start a bit of a Southland Seed  enterprise in the future but that wont be for 2-3 years.

Would like to know as well of others there may be.

kind regards

Thanks for letting me know Kali - I'll correct it when I'm back in the office next Wednesday.  In the meantime, I've attached a word document here----> SSS 2012 Catalogue

For those that received a hard copy (just as I discovered 2 more boxes full of seed packet), updates have been made in bold.
