I’m a first year uni student in Launceston and I’m new to the area. I’m planning on kickstarting my new vege patch and I’m just wondering if anyone out there would have some organic seeds that they would be kind enough to send me. I have nothing to swap (yet!) but I’m prepared to pay a small amount if you could help me out….
I’m not sure what grows here yet but I’m after all basic seeds eg capsicum, leek, garlic, zucchini, carrot, beetroot, broad beans…
If you think that you could help or direct me to some seeds
or knowledge about what grows in the area then that would be awesome!
Thanks in advance.
If you would like to email then contact me at darn87 @gmail.com 🙂
No problem, i have heaps I can send you. PM me your address and I will send you a selection. you’ll probably want to get cracking before Lony gets too cold. do you have room for things like pumpkins and watermelons or just things that are more contained?
I would love to send you some seeds but as you are in Tasmania we are restricted with the tight quaranting laws and whatever we send from the big island probably wont get to you.
Maybe some of the lovely Tasmanian members might have some to offer???
There would surely be an organic growers club or a seed savers club of some sort that would be worth your time to join. Go meet your local growers and obtain your seed from them, or order your open-pollinated commercial seeds from their recommended supplier. Keeping it local will give you best results. Even if we can send you our seeds from warmer climes, you may find your success rate not-so-good in the first few seasons. That’s no way to begin your gardening career! Give yourself the best chance of success and obtain them locally as much as you can.
All the best!
Hi Deb, have pm details to you of a local organic grower that maybe able to help you with seeds and advice.
Good luck and have fun.
The Lost Seed are Taswegian aren’t they? Apparently sometimes their seeds are even at the local hardware store, so you might get them there. Their seeds are heirloom varieties so you can collect the seeds at the end of the season. If not, they also sell online (sorry, don’t have the website, should be easy enough to find.
