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.
