This website contains a basic range of Fuit & Vegetable seeds, but for a broader and more updated range, please visit our Australian Gardener website which is reviewed and increased on a daily basis.
Our Australian Gardener site also allows you to combine both seed and plant orders in the same parcel.
Often called Swamp Cabbage or Water Spinach, this versatile and easy to grow ground covering plant, is more like it's cousins the Sweet Potatoes in growth habit and character.
Harvesting the nutritious leaves as you need them means that it never gets out of control.
This is certainly an heirloom variety. Grown for it's leaves and not with the aim of forming a large central heart, Tuscan Cabbage is by far the closest thing to real cabbage taste and nutrition that is possible. In the garden it is majestic, with it's 'Prince of Wales' foliage and it's very dominant colour. It will grow at almost any time of year but we do not have much of a harvest during the heat of late summer.
Kohlrabi is an attractive and unusual addition to the vegy garden and to the table. The edible part is the fat Turnip-like stem just above the soil level. This is best eaten when not much larger than 7.5cm in diameter. It has a pleasant 'dim sum' flavour served raw in salads or stir fried for Asian dishes.
This little bunch of lettuce leaves is an absolute must in the garden. All parts of the plant are edible and delicious, full of Vitamin C and taste much better than the old 'Iceburg'. Once planted in the garden and allowed to flower you will always have a Winter/Spring crop these lovely little plants. They will grow at almost any time of year but the best time is Winter and early Spring which is just when you need them the most.
A definite change of foliage for the vegetable garden. Mizuna is prolific grower and is edible in at any stage of it's growth from seedling to fully mature plant. The tender leaves, flowering stems and juicy leaf stalks of Mizuna are all ready for a quick rinse and added to the plate.
I suspect that there is something quite addictive about using Mustard Greens in your salads. Salad never tastes quite as good without it. Mustard Green varieties are wonderfully nutritious and beautiful, in the garden and on the plate. Mustard Greens grow most of the year but can have some trouble in the middle of summer. Mustard Greens strike easily from seed and it is wise to plant half a dozen at a time, about one month apart, to ensure a constant supply. The red variety is not quite as strong to eat.
Neat and tidy, not requiring much space in the garden or pots, Pak choi is the ideal suburban vegetable. Pak choi strike well from seed and transplant beautifully. Pak choi are winter hardy as well but will grow in most climates. This Pak choi is the green stemmed variety which we prefer for the extra chlorophyll. We plant 10 at a time over a period to ensure a sustained supply.
No real introduction necessary. Parsley herb is an absolute 'staple' even if you don't have a vegetable garden. Parsley seeds strike well, and quickly, (3-5 days), you can grow it at any time of the year and because it is essentially a biennial, you get great value from any one plant.
The leaves of Perillia are highly aromaticand are not really a replacement for any other herb. The flavour is quite unique with a vegitive spicy aroma that becomes it's taste. Perilla's aroma and flavour are easily appreciated if you already like Sushi. Leaves can be eaten raw, cooked, salted and pickled, or just used as a garnish. Young green leaves are essential for many asian dishes.
Salad Burnett is one of those very decorative plants that work well as specimens in the garden because of their gorgeous fountain shape. They work beautifully in the garden but also, because they are a very tidy herb, look great in pots and window boxes. We generally plant them in winter as their foliage is a great addition to hot and cold salads but in all but the driest of areas they seem to survive well into to summer. The taste of the leaves is very fresh and reminiscent of Borage or cucumber.
Commonly acknowledged as natures sweet secret, these unremarkable plants are wonderful to occupy sheltered corners of the garden that happen from time to time. Stevia plants grow to around 50 cm in height and, depending on the climate can be perennial or annual.
This lovely, bright green foliaged plant with the pretty pink flowers is every gardeners delight. In most warm climates it is perennial but in cooler areas it can easily be treated as an annual. Talinum grows to about 60 cm in height and a similar spread. Neat and tidy in the garden, especially if it is regularly harvested. it requires little care and is tolerant of some neglect.
Commonly used as an aquatic herb, Watercress will grow in a terrarium in a mix of peat and sphagnum moss with a little sand. Alternatively you can pot it and submerge the pot in a pond. They do well in pots if they are allowed to sit in a little tray of water. Either way, it is convenient to harvest the stems and leaves and no other preparation is necessary. As a food, Watercress, used either in salads, soups or sandwiches, it acts as a blood cleanser, diuretic and expectorant.
Corn Salad is one of those wonderful Autumn Winter veges that actually makes you look forward to the cooler months.
Very easy to grow, Corn Salad is like Miners Lettuce, in that it will only germinate successfully when soil temperature and day length are to it's liking. Neither will grow in the heat but they do like to germinate when there is still some warmth in the soil.
Corn Salad self seeds beautifully so you are assured of a yearly crop.
Small in stature but powerful in nutritional value, this dark leafed spinach does not have any of the drawbacks of it's larger cousins.
They can be eaten at any stage during their growth period and are typically just as high in anti oxidants and folic acid at all stages. Their typically deep green leaves can be steamed or simply eaten raw.
