About Us

We stock New Zealand’s largest and most extensive range of native plant seeds along with popular exotic tree and shrub species. Our aim is to encourage the use of New Zealand native plants for gardening, amenity, shelter, and forestry by making quality seed available in commercial qualities. We specialise in the collection, processing, and sale of native plant seeds and strive to offer an increasing range of native species.

We operate as a mail order business from North Canterbury, New Zealand. We market our seeds directly to seed merchants, propagators, nurseries, and home gardeners in New Zealand and around the world. Exporting seed is a large part of our business

We are firmly committed to delivering the highest quality seed and service possible to all our customers worldwide. If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, we will cheerfully exchange or refund it, postage included. 

Established by Fred and Judi Howard in 1989, and run by us as FJ & JK HOWARD PARTNERSHIP, New Zealand Tree Seeds is proud to be a successful, New Zealand owned business.
