    Where Are Our Seeds & Plants Sourced From?

    Our seed come from a range of locations with a primary focus on locally grown. We have two properties that we produce seeds on both in the Manning Valley of NSW. The climate here is ideal to grow a large range of vegetables, herbs, flowers and trees with only a few limitations. 


    • 250+ varieties of Certified Organic Seeds 
    • 200+ varieties of live plants are propagated on site

    Growing such a large number of varieties gives us a strong insight into how varieties handle the Australian climate. We employ locals and are very focused on supporting our surrounding local business where possible.

    The majority of our seeds are grown onsite at Greenpatch Farm with a handful of seed growers throughout Australia supporting us and the seed industry by producing seeds, using organic principals and methods.

    We pride ourselves in supporting Australian growers and truly produce as many varieties as possible ourselves! In most cases, our imported seed is only used when no other option is available to ensure a extensive range of vegetables, herbs, flowers and grains. The fact that some seed varieties have to be imported, sadly shows a lacking number of sufficient seed growers in Australia.

    Where are the seeds you buy in grown?

    We feel like this is a topic that is mostly hidden in the seed industry. We want to make it clear where we get our seeds from, what labelling actually means and how you can be sure of your seed supplier.

    Most of the bought in heirloom, open pollinated, organic seeds available for purchase online come from overseas. Why? Because it is more economical and easier to buy in seed and re-sell. This may come as a surprise, but most seed companies don't grow their seeds! We are part of the select few who actually grow our own seeds and sell direct to the customer. (please see below where our seeds are grown)


    A lot of gardeners are aware that they need to ensure the product is labelled certified organic or at least organic to ensure you are buying a organic product. It's easy online for labelling to be relaxed and inaccurate. We have seen this on other websites so we are making sure you understand to read the label  and understand whether you are buying Organic Seed or Conventional Seed.

    Certified Organic 

    This is seed that has either been grown by us at Greenpatch or purchased from other certified organic suppliers & growers. 

    If you prefer to only buy seeds grown by Greenpatch their is a filter function on the product page that can allow you to only view products grown by Greenpatch. This filter is called "greenpatch grown". 

    Organically Grown - Uncertified

    Organically Grown - Uncertified do not carry organic certification. These lines are grown using organic practices and without the use of artificial fertilisers, chemical herbicides and chemical pesticides but the grower cannot justify the cost of becoming certified organic. We often know these producers personally and trust their organic practices.

    Untreated Seed

    Untreated Seed means it is not grown organically. These seeds don't have any chemical seed treatment on the seed surface. These seeds are grown conventionally and sold as non-organic seed. They are still open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-GMO seeds.
