What are Survival Seeds?

Survival Seeds is a company dedicated to providing high-quality, non-GMO heirloom seeds to gardeners and homesteaders who value self-sufficiency, sustainable agriculture, and preserving genetic diversity in plants. Our seeds are carefully selected for their taste, yield, and adaptability, making them ideal for survival situations and everyday gardening.

What are heirloom seeds?

Heirloom seeds are open-pollinated varieties that have been handed down through generations of growers, often for 50 years or more. These seeds produce plants with consistent traits, and their seeds can be saved and replanted, ensuring a sustainable food supply.

Are your seeds non-GMO?

Yes, all of our seeds are non-GMO. We are committed to providing seeds that have not been genetically modified in any way and are true to their heritage.

Are your seeds organic?

While not all of our seeds are certified organic, we strive to source seeds from growers who use organic and sustainable farming practices. We also offer a selection of certified organic seeds for customers looking for this specific certification.

Can I save seeds from my harvest to replant next season?

Yes, since our seeds are open-pollinated heirloom varieties, you can save seeds from your harvest to replant in future seasons, ensuring a self-sufficient and sustainable garden.

How long will my seeds remain viable for storage?

It depends on the variety. Peas and beans have been known to last for centuries in the right conditions, but for our kits we say 2 – 5 years as an average across all varieties.

To minimise loss in quality, we recommend to store our packs sealed in a dark, dry, cool location. A cupboard or drawer is normally sufficient short term (6 months – 1 year). For longer periods we recommend you store this packet sealed shut in your fridges crisper drawer. Avoid condensation by allowing the pack and seeds to come to room temp before opening. Don’t freeze seeds, if done incorrectly it can kill seeds instantly.

What is your germination rate?

We strive to provide seeds with a germination rate of at least 85%. However, germination rates can be affected by various factors, such as storage conditions, planting techniques, and environmental factors.

Do you ship internationally?

Currently, we only ship within the Australia due to international regulations and restrictions on seed shipments. We are continuously working on expanding our shipping options to serve our customers better.

What is your return policy?

We stand by the quality of our seeds and want our customers to be satisfied with their purchase. If you have any issues with your order or the seeds’ performance, please contact our customer service team within 30 days of receipt for a replacement or refund.
