    I like the Franchi seeds for price and amount. I can also recommend the others mentioned. Link is below.


    I use Cornucopia and The Lost Seed


    I use Eden, always successful, however I am very impressed by the way they give instructions on the back of some seed packets on how to save seeds, even adding these days it is very important to keep old and naturally pollinated species from becoming extinct. Dont know of any other seed supplier who encourages seed saving.

    By the way Yates is owned by Monsanto, so I wont touch them.


    I grow using Diggers Seeds and have had great germination rates. I love the whole philosophy of The Diggers Club and am an avid member and subscriber. A bit dissapointed to hear a complaint so I hope Diggers hears that and responds. My philosophy is to only eat and grow food sourced from within 30 kilometers and Diggers fits that boundary. One tip is when sowing seeds water in with Lyn Bagnalls Epsom Salt solution, has helped me. Best of luck and enjoy. Cheers GR.


    I have just ordered from Eden and gat the order in 24hrs! :jawdrop: Fantastic:tup:
