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!

  • I am going to have Salsify and Parsnip seed this year...

  • 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
