Australia's finest range of heirloom seeds since 1986

Welcome to Eden Seeds and Select Organic.

Our aim is to distribute old traditional open pollinated varieties of vegetable seed, preferably old Australian varieties and organically or bio-dynamically grown where possible.

 

We believe they are more nutritious and better tasting, hardy and easier to grow for the home gardener. Old varieties produce over an extended period. Home gardeners obtain relaxation, enjoyment and quality from a most rewarding hobby.

 

Our seeds are the old traditional open pollinated non-hybrid varieties and have no chemical treatment, and no genetic engineering.

 

Shifting to 100% recycled packets

Our new seed packets are now sourced from 100% recycled paper. This includes the eco-brown Eden Seeds packet, as well as the plain white and colour packets for Select Organic too.

 

We still have many thousands of the yellow/gold packets to use, which will take us several years to completely finish off. Those older packets are not recycled paper, however they are sourced from sustainable forests.

 

We also use various recycled paper products in our office.

 

 A huge range of gardening books

As well as offering the largest range of vegetable & herb seeds in Australia, we also have a huge range of gardening related books, from beginner gardening through to advanced biodynamics.

 

We have wall charts for companion planting, moon planting guides, DVDs, cookbooks, permaculture, no-dig gardening, sprouts & microgreens, compost, green manures, soil fertility, a few children’s books, and much more!

Which type of seeds to choose?

Eden Seeds are conventionally grown with no chemical treatment, and in some cases organically grown however they are not certified organic.

 

Select Organic seeds are certified organically grown (ACO 10457).

 

Both Eden and Select seeds are the old traditional, open pollinated, non-hybrid varieties and have no chemical treatment, and no genetic engineering.

 

Announcing no fees to Western Australia

Our Western Australian customers do not pay the quarantine inspection fee, instead we are billed directly from QWA under special arrangement. You pay no surcharge or additional fees for your seed order.

 

The W.A. quarantine inspection process can sometimes delay delivery so we ask our all W.A. customers to allow at least two weeks for delivery. Please keep this in mind when planning your planting schedule.

We also have a list of seeds that cannot be sent to W.A.
