List of available SEEDS:
(Para información en ESPAÑOL sobre las semillas de heliconias, jengibres ornamentales y frutales tropicales que tengamos disponible, métodos de pago, etc., le rogamos ver más abajo en esta misma página)
We offer a good selection of Heliconia and ornamental ginger seeds. Seeds of tropical fruits that may be in season, some flowering trees, and some butterfly host plant seeds are also seasonally available. All are collected at our farm in Las Marias, Puerto Rico, from organically grown plants.
We guarantee our seeds. If you're not totally satisfied with your seed order, just return the package, and we'll refund your payment minus shipping costs, no questions asked.
Our regular seed packets have always been $4.99 USD each, plus shipping. The number of seeds per packet will depend on: plant species, seed size, and availability. Most packets contain 10-12 seeds each. Bonus seeds are always added to every order. BULK packs are also offered when we have plenty of seeds of any species; please read on for further information.
HOW TO ORDER SEEDS FROM US: Send us a simple list of the seeds you want, specifying regular packets or BULK Packs. We'll verify availability, and will send you a total and instructions on how to pay. We accept cash, personal checks, Money Orders, and PayPal within the U.S.A. For international orders, we only accept Western Union and PayPal. Orders are shipped soon after payment is confirmed. We only ship PREPAID orders, very sorry to specify; no exceptions. You'll find our email address at the end of this page if you need further information on purchasing seeds from us. Minimum order for seed orders is $10.00 USD. Maximum packets per international orders: ten (10).
PLEASE NOTE: Only those species marked with a small "x" on the table below are currently available. Others will eventually be available during the year.
BULK PACKS of heliconia, ginger, and tropical fruit seeds are sometimes available and are always posted on our Seeds page under the "Bulk" column. These are also very fresh seeds that can be offered at a great price when we have plenty of seeds of any given species. BULK Packs are always marked with a big "X" on the right column. Please email us if you need additional information.
SHIPPING within the USA and its Territories starts at $2.50 for HELICONIA and/or GINGER seed packets. FRUIT SEED packets usually require additional shipping costs: many of these seeds are large.
*INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: Due to a recent, significant increase in postage costs, regular international shipping now starts at $9.50 USD for seed orders, even small ones. We've always tried to kept international shipping costs low, but now must keep up with current rates. We don't profit from shipping costs. International orders are shipped via regular international air mail shipping only; no International Express or International Registered Mail will be available; it's costly for the buyer, and package arrival cannot be guaranteed once it leaves American soil. Payment for international orders is through Western Union and PayPal only. We don't accept drafts from overseas banks.
WE SHIP SEEDS WORLDWIDE, but can no longer ship to ITALY or MAURITIUS due to their strict regulations. We can ship to BRAZIL and MEXICO, but clients from these countries must be aware that packages sent their way have often times been lost en route. We can't possibly track these packages, nor can we be made responsible for lost or stolen material. Soft tropical seeds like rambutan, pulasan and Amazon tree grape, to name a few, cannot be shipped internationally due to long transit hours and short seed viability, very sorry to say.
Some countries prohibit the import of seeds. Australian customers must be aware that seeds of some Heliconia species are not allowed in. Please check AQIS' List of Permitted Species online at: www.aqis.gov.au.
Please give us at least TEN (10) days to process your order. We may be able to ship your seeds very quickly some times, but often times we need additional time to pack and ship them well. Our seeds are carefully cleaned, and hand packed, and this is time consuming. Orders are always processed in the same order as they're received.
When there are harsh winter conditions in your area, please be aware that these are TROPICAL seeds that require warm temperatures to germinate. We cannot be made responsible for seeds lost to cold weather, nor do we want to expose valuable seeds to harsh conditions.
Our heliconia seeds (and some of our gingers) are packed in a moist medium: this greatly improves their germination rate. Some of your seeds may even germinate in transit. Sorry, but we never ship dry Heliconia seeds.
