We grow all of our seeds offered in our catalogue.
This is an important distinction from our collection to other seed companies who buy in most of their seeds from the multinational seed market.
NZ Heritage Seeds = NZH
All of our NZ heritage seeds, which are most of the seeds in our range, came to New Zealand with the early settlers. They arrived on boats and waka to start their new lives in a foreign land, bringing their treasured varieties - sometimes sown into hems of women’s skirts.
Those seeds and being kept alive by the gardeners of New Zealand. They are very well suited to this climate and you can now be a part of keeping this legacy of care in your garden for your children’s children to enjoy one day.
Open Pollinated = OP
We also have some open pollinated varieties that we have decided to include here because we like them so much. These varieties are not NZ heritage but we have been growing them for some time and find them important parts of our collection and wanted to make them available. They will produce true to type and therefore the seeds can be saved.
Overseas Heritage = OH
We also have overseas heritage varieties that we have received from sources in New Zealand and decided to grow out. If they have performed well, we have included them.
