We have added to our range of seeds now and what we have included is plenty of tomatoes so that people can start to think about sowing tomato seeds (spring is not that far away really and there is nothing worse than looking for tomato seeds and you find that all the best ones are already gone!)

You can buy these seeds from my market stall at The Cygnet Market.

If you need any further advice, please ask. My father ran a successful nursery for many years in Adelaide and I have grown up amongst trees, plants and seeds. I want people to be able to grow their own food.

If you would like to purchase Cottage Garden seeds or Native seeds, you can order these from us at Cygnet Market.

All of my products are also available most days from 1pm at The Garden Shed and Pantry, Cygnet
