Suppliers of indigenous South African seed Please note that seeds are sold in quantities of 100 seeds (the price on the website is for 100 seeds). Bulbs and live plants are priced per plant. Rare seeds are priced as in their product description. For all of us here at Lifestyle Seeds, Indigenous South African plants and seeds are our passion. We go to great lengths to be able to offer you a large variety of freshly picked seeds, and good quality plants and bulbs. Our seeds are checked and counted by hand to make sure you get only the best quality and to ensure that you get maximum results. We also offer rare plants and seeds, caudex plants and caudiciform plants. We always try to work with Mother Nature and make sure that we do not damage plants, insects or animals. We try to run our office and business as eco-friendly as possible and we have planted more than 400 indigenous trees on our premises during the last year. Of course we will keep on planting more! Our hot water is generated by solar panels while we use Power Saints and energy saver light bulbs to decrease our electricity usage.
