Budding Gardeners

Thanks to livingseeds.co.za my family have become enthusiastic gardeners. We, kids included, always look forward to receiving our orders and getting the seeds going and the excitement of seeing the first little leaves pop up causes a lot of competition amongst us at home :-) We have successfully harvested our own crops and are now eating veggies that we previously never liked - but if we grow them, we eat them - that's the rule. Thank you for helping my family enjoy our garden and for introducing us to a whole range of edibles that we would not have previously bought. Well done on a superb product!

Yay - Successful potatoes

After loosing 90% of my potatoes to moles every year I planted my Living Seeds potatoes in my old dogfood bags and really looked after them. The tops have all died down and I can harvest each bag as I need them for myself I have just unearthed my third bag. What a joy to find plump healthy potatoes again in each bag. Living seeds advice as to how to harvest them when the skins are firm and not washing them all immediately is something I would never have been aware of.

Great service once again

My second order of seedlings and seeds arrived in excellent condition once again. We cannot keep up with the abundance of the previous lot, so naturally I ordered even more for summer! I look forward to the variety of tomatoes and a few veggies and melons I've not tried before. My gardener has a side business supplying chillies from only two bushes, so I'm keen to see what would happen with the new varieties I ordered. Once again, I love the variety Living Seeds has and their wonderful service. Well done guys!

Excited to start sprouting!

I ordered the sprouting system and some extra seeds over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised to receive my parcel on Tuesday morning! My kids eat sprouts (almost) like sweets and we are excited to start growing our own. Five stars for Livingseeds' service and a great product, and an effective courier partner too! PS. Love the catalogue also :-)

Your packaging and information you provide with your seeds have FAR exceeded our expectations! We are looking forward to ordering from you again!! Now, off to plant those seeds ;-)

Giant Garlic

Every year with out fail I purchase garlic cloves & everytime have 100% success. Making oil from the cloves is a wow factor as it does not compare to any of the branded products available, the aroma & taste is supreme. I do not want to slice & dice as feel that I loose much of the unique flavor. Plus the aroma makes like an addict in the kitchen, hogging what I have sown. Its the only plant I would plant how ever need greens in the garden too...

Catalogue for bedtime reading

I have been impressed with everything about Livingseeds since the first time I discovered their website. However, their catalogue takes the Livingseeds experience to a whole new level. It is outstanding. I found myself reading it with happy anticipation of future vegetable growing. Thanks to Sean and his team!

Thank you

If the country was run the way Livingseeds is run, we would all be living in paradise. Thank you for your diligence and superb service. I can't get enough of Livingseeds.co.za. Can't wait for all of the new varieties you spoke of in this month's newsletter. Be blessed.

Non-green fingered people can garden too!

I finally realized that I can be a gardener too, thanks to the great team @ livingseeds. If you have not bought the autumn/winter package for beginners, then do it now. My winter veggies are well on their way already! And my neighbours who received a package from me, used it to have bonding time with their toddler. As for the more exotic stuff - that is so much fun! I cannot tell you how many people are totally amazed at the interesting things growing in my garden, eg. jelly melons. I probably will never buy seeds anywhere else again.

Growing the way nature intended

Livingseeds is a blessing to all of us sick and tired of boring,nutrient depleted and tasteless food.The live seedling are amazing, I am now growing herbs and chilies that would have been near impossible to grow on my own.If every home grew just a few veggies we would all be healthier and benefit from huge savings.Stuart Grossi Pietermaritzburg

Livingseeds.co.za and Selfsustainable.co.za has become 2 of my most visited sites. I've ordered 3 batches of seeds and the service has always been of the highest standard. The addition of the seed Info bar is a game changer and like Anna Mouton I find myself picking up the catalogue again and again.I firmly believe that heirloom seeds and micro/urban food cultivation is the only way to create sustainable and long lasting food security.Thanks to Sean and the entire LivingSeeds team.

1st time customer

Well, I ordered Sweet Potatoes and Black Popcorn on the 18th Nov, and exactly 2 days later, I received my order at the door. I am very impressed by delivery time. This extends over into customer care and general efficiency.When I received my Sweet Potato (Which I pride myself with), I planted it immediately. As I'm typing this testimony, today being Nov 20th, I've just finished watering them, and by the looks of things, it might rain hard as well.I certainly look forward to buying more seeds from Living Seeds in the very near future. My garden is far from complete.Thank You to everybody who is The Living Seeds staff.

Excellent service

Was I impressed with living seeds!! Even after their misfortune after the storm, they managed to replace a wrong order with all the seedlings I originally ordered and even included seeds from the previous order as well as extra seeds!Well done - I will surely buy my seeds/seedlings ONLY from you!

Bhut Jolika

I planted some Bhut Jolika seeds late December 2012, phoned Sean on a regular basis wanting to know why my seeds were not germinating. As stated on the website, these are difficult seeds to germinate which was confirmed when doing my own research on the web. After two weeks I closed my Tupperware container where the seeds trays were in and decided to give it up as a bad job and order a new batch of seeds. On 20 Feb 2013 I decided to open the container to clean it out to prepare for my new batch, to my surprise I was greeted by 20 one inch seedlings, two months after planting, fantastic. I myself work with customers but never have I met anyone as patient a Sean. Thanks Again, I will always support you.Daan Wentzel Pretoria Gauteng

Livingseeds has made life more to live

We are so enjoying our vege-garden life. Tossed out the fruit trees that were not performing much in our garden for 20 years and started the veges in May this year (2015).Everything is an exciting experience. Some are great others need refinement by ourselves, our soil, our sun, our watering, our composting, etc etc etc ….. but that which produces …. so rewarding.Ordered our 3rd lot and waiting with expectant anticipation.Thank you Sean and all at Livingseeds, making life a growing joy. Especially for this 60'something non-gardening granny. And yes, your catalogue reads like a novel. xx

Garlic

Have planted your garlic two years running and have been able to keep us 'in garlic' for the entire year' even with the passing on to friends just so that they can taste the difference between your garlic and the shop bought stuff! Even the smell is totally different...I love it!!

They will be going to the garden tomorrow morning just after 6AM!I think you have created a little addict in me because I just checked if you do not perhaps have new seedlings I can buy. Hiehie!

Wow! Good Service!

Only ordered my reduced special price Sprouting System yesterday and hey presto, it has arrived already!! Blown away by your service!! (Took less than 24 hours to arrive). I've always wanted to order seeds online (from the USA) but now realise that local is lekker (and better at it) ;). Keep up the good work, as soon as Winter is over, will be ordering more seeds. You've renewed my enthusiasm. Thank you for the positive experience.

Growing Side by Side

Our move to a the country six years ago coincided with reading about living and eating ethically, seasonally and locally and my discovery of Living Seeds. Thank you for helping to make it possible for us to follow our dream of living as self sufficiently and sustainably as we can. Living Seeds have been there every step of the way with your predictably reliable seeds and exciting varieties of heirloom options. I have found your personal touch through emails, newsletters, online advice and now the catalogue such a source of helpful information on this journey. As I have grown from a place of complete city ignorance to almost completely living off the veggies we grow it has also been a delight to see your business grow into something that we South Africans can truly be proud of.

Black Zebra Tomatos

I bought seedlings from you for Black Zebra tomatoes and a few other varieties. They grew in leaps and bounds once transplanted and I am extremely pleased with the resulting fruit, which is beautiful to behold and delicious to eat. I highly recommend your seedlings, which are obviously grown with love and then packed and shipped with great care. Thank you for delightful products and excellent service.

Great Service

I placed two separate orders and asked that the second be shipped with the first. The second order contained only one packet of seed. The order was delivered, but the seed from the second order was not included. I decided that I’m not going to make a fuss about it and did not even contact Living Seeds but a few days later a second delivery arrived with the one packet of seed! Great service!

TIP: Our shipping options and rates do change based on your shipping address. (Couriers cannot deliver to a postal address)

For the best shipping rates, please check by changing your shipping address between a physical street address and a postal address. This will allow you to choose the fastest AND most cost effective shipping option.

Note that we will send you a completed confirmation once your order has been processed.

Seedlings via Courier

We supply a limited variety of seedlings via courier.

Please note that shipping out of seedlings will take place at our discretion. We will generally try to ensure that your seedlings do not spend the weekend travelling or warehoused in a courier facility.

Therefore if you are in a known outlying area where we know that you will not get overnight or 48hr service, we will hold your order back till the following Monday.

Our goal is to have your seedlings travelling for less than 48hrs. Please ensure that your contact details are correct and you are contactable.

Our tests however have confirmed that the seedlings have a 95% survival rate after 7 days in a closed (and travelling) box. They may not look pretty, but they will recover.

There will be no refunds on seedlings.

 Undeliverable packages

 Occasionally packages are returned to us undeliverable. Should this event take place every attempt will be made to contact you to make arrangements for re-shipment.

If we cannot contact you or your parcel is returned to us a second time we will donate the contents a local charity of our choice.
