We are an Australian owned and operated business, based in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges in Ferntree Gully, Victoria.
We are an online business dedicated to providing gardeners with quality herb, vegetable and flower seeds. It's our mission to make more seeds more accessible to more people; we believe everyone should have access to quality seeds and a diversity of varieties at a fair price.

The business was founded in 2010 by Adam Boddy, when he was unable to find the right seed company to buy from. "I just made the business I wanted to buy from myself" says Adam. "I hated the idea of paying for fancy packaging, it's completely unnecessary and does nothing besides increase the cost. To me seeds are such a basic product, they don't need branding or glossy pictures". Since then TheSeedCollection has operated as more of a seed service rather than a seed brand, selling quality seeds in simple packaging for a fraction of the cost of other seed companies.
"It’s my aim to give home gardeners better access to better seeds at a fair price. ...Growing your own food is a great way to encourage healthy habits and build and empower communities as well as teach important life skills. And growing from seed helps preserve our food diversity while helping improve food security. ...It's also a very rewarding hobby!"

It's our aim to make more seeds, more accessible to more people. It's our aim to help you. We don't waste resources on unnecessary packaging or marketing. Instead we supply our seeds in simple packaging and count on our customers to spread the word about our business by telling their friends. This ultimately means we are able to offer our seeds at a significantly better price than most other seed suppliers. Don't believe us? Browse our catalogue and see for yourself ;) We have a large range of seed varieties that contains most common vegetables, herbs and flowers as well as many other rare and uncommon types. We specialise in vegetable, herb and flower seeds but also carry some fruit, native and other ornamental seed varieties. Our catalogue of seed varieties is always expanding.
About our Seeds
Seeds are packaged in small sealed plastic bags that are approximately 50 x 85mm in size. The bags are labelled with common name, botanical name, lot number, a variety description and basic sowing information. For full sowing information customers can browse the product descriptions and sowing guides on our website. Quantity of seeds per packet depends on the variety but at a minimum we try and give enough seeds for an average home gardener. (See our product descriptions to view seed counts. Note: Seed counts are only approximate and to be used as a guide only) All our seed batches are tested for germination to ensure seed viability prior to being listed for sale on our website. Our seeds are stored in a temperature and humidity controlled enviornment right up until they are dispatched to ensure that the seeds are delivered to our customers as fresh and viable as possible. We do not sell old stock, or stock which tests below our high germination standards. We will never sell any seed that doesn't meet our standards.
