    Hi hedwig,

    Yes, I've been buying and trying their seed for nearly a year now.

    Their seed is generally great. I have had a few packets with low germination rates but at least they list approx. germination percentage on the packets and pack more seed into those with lower germ rates. They put heaps of info onto each packet which I totally respect - the more info the better! They also appear to have a very fluid range of seeds - some varieties disappear but they seem to be always expanding. Best of all (for me) is that they're local.

    I was not paid for this message :p

    well for me they won't be local. But the information thing is very important, as for example Eden sometimes does not provide sowing tome for everything. And there is no possibility to e-mail them.
    The germination rates is a great thing, because you can be sure they tested and it has something of a honest and open policy.
    For SE QLD there are some suppliers but they have only a limited range and the other seed companies are at least in Victoria.

    Got my galic and shallot bulbs. Very quick turn around and good planting notes. Will report back on germination rates later.

    I've just starting using their service. I found their site easy to navigate and the prices comparable. Good service - I ordered on the Wednesday night and they arrived on my doorstep in SE Qld on Monday morning. 8) I'll let you know how the germination rate goes.

    Yeah, they seem to be a great company. Based in Shefield on our Wonderful Island.

    I requested a wholesale relationship with them a few months back but despite regular contact they didn't get back to me.

    I decided to go with Greenpatch seeds, and currently retail their products.
