Inspired by generations of seed savers and growers who have always seen the importance of an on-going relationship to the land. Based in Whenuakite Valley, Coromandel, Ladybird Seeds grow a variety of flowers, edibles and natives and follow no-dig method and permaculture principles in their own gardens.
Compost your empty Ladybird packet and try saving your seeds to keep the cycle going. Keep an eye on their collection, as they hope to expand their offerings to organic veges, herbs and natives very soon.
