Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell to all states of Australia?

Due to demand, including situations such as Covid-19,  we cannot always accept orders outside our midwest Western Australian region.

We will generally post updates on our blog and website pop ups as to current status of seed availability.

During periods when demands are high we may need to temporarily close our on-line store to fulfill orders and check stock.

 

Postage

All orders under 100 packets are delivered by Australia Post.

Postage and handling are calculated at checkout.

Postage and handling will not be charged for local pickups from our farm here in Geraldton, Western Australia.

Seeds per Packet

The number of seeds per packet is displayed next to the varieties’ SKU code.

We look to provide enough for gardeners for a number of seasons. Some seeds are very small and are hand counted rather than weighed, and some variation in actual seeds per packet may occur.

Pay Options
We accept payment for on-line orders through Direct Deposit or Cheque/Money Order.

Sorry we do not accept on-line credit card payments.

Upon receipt of your order we will confirm that we have stocks to meet your order and provide you with payment details.

For local pickup orders we have eftpos facilities.

Bulk Orders

We do not accept bulk orders due the limitations of the size of our gardens. 

Some varieties may have limits in regards to the number of packets you can purchase.

This is dependent on our current stock and what we are currently growing/harvesting in our gardens.

We will confirm quantities upon receipt of your order.

Use of Photos

The Drylands Foundation hold copyright of all photos used on this website, unless otherwise stated.

Please email us should you wish to use or link to our photos for non-commercial or commercial use.

Why choose our seeds

Grown Right Here

All our seed is grown on our farm’s Permaculture Gardens in Geraldton.

None of the seeds we sell are imported and repackaged.

Each season we select the best plants from each variety and progressively acclimatise them to our changing climate.

Our experience in dryland organic gardening allows us to offer practical advice on how and when to grow your productive garden and begin your own seed saving journey.

Non-GMO, Chemical Free Seeds

All our seeds are Non-GMO, Non-Hybrid Open Pollinated heirloom varieties.

We grow organically and manage our gardens to avoid cross pollination and keep our varieties pure.

From the Past to the Future

Our vegetables, herbs and local native seed is a valuable biodiversity resource.

By growing on seed, we are able to adapt our varieties to changing climate conditions and demands.

Our heirloom seed varieties represent the efforts of our past seed savers to preserve our botanical and culinary heritage for the future.
