Organic Seedlings - grown from 100% organic ingredients

Oakdale Organics is a BioGro certified organic vegetable and herb seedling grower..

Our plants are grown in their natural season, from organic or untreated heritage seeds in organic media. We test our seedlings constantly to assess their growth in various conditions. Our goal is to offer the healthiest seedlings to the home gardener. Plants grown organically have higher vitamin, mineral and nutrient levels and taste better. Remember granny’s old plum or apple tree?

We do not use chemicals to control the bad bugs in our nursery – our philosophy is that companion planting is the most natural and effective type of long term pest control. Herbs, flowers and vegetables are mixed together to attract bees, lacewings, parasitic wasps, hoverflies which keep the pest population under control. Creating biodiversity will help small gardens find their own natural balance. Gardens are healthy when pests are kept at bay without the use of chemicals.

The latest addition to our impressive range of plants is medicinal herbs – many of our customers are health conscious and want to grow their own herbs which they can dry and use in making healthy teas and infusions.

Our plants are simply terrific because every plant is hand seeded, transplanted and grown prior to being handed across to our retailers.

Hi -- you asked a while back in the Whanganui group about people's experiences with Oakdale products. I've been very happy to find a good selection at a couple of local nurseries. I was late getting in a garden this year (my first) and was happy to buy seedlings. I found them robust and healthy and they've gone well. Because I was buying late in the season (December, for summer plants?!?) the seedlings were really pot bound and I didn't know how they'd go. But the lettuces in particular were standouts and everything has gone well. I think you guys are great. I love the philosophy I've just read here in your profile. I appreciate the range of herbs and companion plants you sell. And your prices are really good. Thanks!

Hi Stephen, Sarah from Xelocity here. My summer savory that I got from you at the last company update is going great in my herb garden.
