Backyard Seeds is an heirloom vegetable and herb seed specialist. We began as a small backyard seed farm in the Yarra Valley, Victoria. As demand grew, we engaged other seed growers from the region and across South East Australia. Our seeds are untreated, open pollinated, non-hybrid and non-GMO, perfect for your own seed saving. We specialise in heirloom variety packs for the backyard gardener.
The Backyard Seeds philosophy is to provide affordable seeds, allowing greater diversity for the backyard grower. We specialise in variety packs of fresh seeds in quantities appropriate for the backyard garden. Our aim is for all backyard gardens to be productive and diverse, just as nature intended.
So why are our variety packs so reasonably priced? Have you ever bought a pack of seeds, used enough for your veggie garden, and then had the left over seeds wasting away in the packet becoming stale? Many of us backyard gardeners have a box full of old seeds, well past their expiry date. Not many backyard gardeners plant 700 lettuce seeds at a time, yet usually we must pay for large quantities of seed. Backyard Seeds offers an alternative. We are focused on providing seeds appropriate for the backyard gardener, where 50 or 100 lettuce seeds are ample. This way we can offer affordable seed packs, full of fresh vegetable and herb seed varieties that are ready to be planted today.
All Backyard Seeds products have 100% recycled paper seed envelopes, and all seed varieties are individually packaged inside and clearly labelled. We also provide detailed growing notes and tips about each plant and harvest methods.
Whether in a backyard, a rooftop, a courtyard, or a window sill, we want to help people start planting today!
