The Seedy Business explores Africa, seeking out the seeds of rare and beautiful plants. To supply the highest quality seeds at the lowest prices online, we build relationships with botanists, conservationists and independent farmers. We assess all of the sustainability issues at hand.

Africa’s diverse habitats are home to some of the world’s most prized species. Yet their seeds are often purchased without serious consideration of the ecological consequences for their wild origin, or the potential economic cost for the people who share the land. The Seedy Business does things differently. 

Mbegu nadra. Vitendo vyema. That’s Swahili for our motto, “Rare seeds. Good deeds.” We safeguard biodiversity locally as we share it internationally. Local communities are crucial in all aspects of the process and your purchase will directly support grassroots conservation efforts.
