Australian Native Seed Suppliers
The following information has been compiled from details supplied by the various suppliers. All companies supply overseas customers unless otherwise indicated.
OVERSEAS GROWERS PLEASE NOTE:
Many countries require Phytosanitary Certificates to accompany any consignment of seed to certify that the seed is free of disease and insect/fungus pests. Companies which export seed will arrange for the necessary documentation, however, the cost will be passed on to the customer. The cost varies depending on the company involved. Anyone ordering from overseas should check the import requirements of their own country and, when ordering, ensure that the company is advised if a Phytosanitary Certificate is needed.
To telephone or fax any of the companies from overseas, dial your International Access Code, then dial the Australian Country Code (61), then the Australian phone number without the first zero of the Area Code. For example, to dial the Australian phone number (02) XXXX XXXX from the USA, you would dial 011 61 2 XXXX XXXX.
If you contact any of these suppliers, please let them know where you found out about their services.
The Australian National Botanic Gardens has compiled a comprehensive list of over 30 Australian seed suppliers based on information from the CSIRO Division of Forestry. The list includes small regional collectors as well as Government agencies.
