YES! Livingseeds can now ship heirloom seedlings.
Once again, another South African first from your favourite Heirloom Seed company.
Buying your own heirloom seedlings is the perfect solution for a number of gardeners.
1) The gardener that wants to have an instant garden.
2) You are a spot late in the season to start your garden from seed.
3) You find that growing from seed is difficult.
4) You would prefer to buy the more difficult seeds to germinate, as seedlings.
5) We supply far too many seed varieties, and you would prefer 1 or 2 plants of many varieties.
6) You want to eat healthily, but don't have the time to plant seed.
Livingseeds has developed a method of shipping live seedlings via courier.
After extensive research and trials we are now able to offer you a limited selection of heirloom vegetables as seedlings.
We will not be offering our complete range as seedlings and will only grow out certain varieties.
What we have on offer is what is currently available, unfortunately we will not be growing on request. We have started off with a small range of brassicas, and our summer crops (tomatoes, chillies, brinjals etc will be available in the next few weeks.
So this is how it works. PLEASE READ this.
Every week, we will have a list of seedlings available on our website. We anticipate that this will change every 2-3 weeks as seedlings are sold out and new ones are added. Please note that we are unable to 'hold' seedling orders over, they are growing plants and we have a window that must be used when selling them.
These seedlings are sold in single units, to allow you to mix and match the seedlings that you desire, in the quantities that you desire.
The seedlings will be planting ready, and will not be forced into premature flower or otherwise manipulated. They will need to be in the ground within 24-48 hours of you receiving them. So please make sure that your garden is ready to accept them.
How the charges work.
There are two charges on seedlings. The first a seedling cost and then there is a separate packing charge.
12 Seedlings fit perfectly into one of our boxes. You can mix and match any number of seedlings as you wish, just bear in mind that for the most cost effective order on seedlings, it works in 12's.
Please note that depending on your location, we may not ship on a Thursday or Friday to ensure that your seedlings do not spend the weekend in a dark box.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.
Lastly, Please note, that we do not grow seedlings on request, so please bear that in mind.
