LET'S GET PLANTING!

Our vegetable seedling varieties are chosen for their suitability to the season, growing conditions on Great Barrier Island, disease resistance and especially for their FLAVOUR! We have grown almost all the varieties here ourselves. 

We grow traditional, open-pollinated heirloom varieties as well as F1 hybrids (usually for their increased disease resistance and production), always from untreated seed and organic where possible.
