Where did that year go????


Gardening is good for the soul and with both national and international travel being seriously curtailed, our gardens are a perfect way to get some exercise and fresh air during all these crazy times of spending so much time at home.

With so much focus on your gardens, we have had another big year here at Kings Seeds.  The amount of seed that has gone out the door has broken records again indicating that there are many gardens out there ready to provide an amazing bounty of vegetables and herbs, if they are not doing so already.  And the flower gardens should be prolific.

We love knowing that many of you are getting back to those great basics of growing healthy, nutritious and tasty food for yourselves and your families and probably extended families and neighbours too.  We are certain all that sharing is good for our souls too.

Talking of sharing, remember to take photos throughout the summer so you can send them to us for the competition we run each year for pictures in our catalogue.  In particular, we love seeing the big picture of your gardens so get clicking and emailing them to

So in summary, all that toiling in our soil and sharing of produce you have grown has been a great way of keeping a little sanity amongst all the chaos of 2021.

Throughout the past year we have been doing our absolute best to keep as many varieties as possible in stock, but with our suppliers worldwide experiencing the same disruptions as NZ, our shipments to replenish stocks have been slow and in some cases non-existent.  If you have been frustrated by your favourites being unavailable we apologize and hope that you can understand that we are consistently working hard to find supplies of all your preferred varieties.


The Kings Seeds team are all taking a much deserved break to spend some relaxing and fun time with our families and friends.  No doubt we will over-indulge but we will return refreshed and ready to tackle 2022 and whatever it may bring.  And who knows, we may even get on top of all those long overdue chores in our own gardens.

We will be closing at midday on Thursday 23rd December 2021

We will be back in the office on Monday 10th January 2022

You are welcome to place orders on our website over the holidays and we will process them when we return.

We wish you and your families a very happy festive season and look forward to helping you with your seed requirements next year.  MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR.
