Heirloom Seeds : Herbs, Fruit & Flowers
Nothing beats the pleasure of growing your own food, especially growing from seed.
Saved and passed down from generation to generation, heirloom seeds are old-time varieties (pre-dating the sixties) open-pollinated to capture exceptional taste, nutritional value, yield and disease resistance.
Based in Melbourne, The Little Veggie Patch Co. has been dedicated to helping people grow food since 2008. Each seed pack comes with detailed growing instructions.
