About

SmartSeeds is your leading source for rare, exotic seeds from around the world.

I come from a long line of gardeners. A hundred years ago, this town was my great-grandfather's lemon ranch. Now it's home to six colleges, all landscaped with awesome plants. Claremont calls itself The City of Trees. It's like a zoo for plants.

I live on the family homestead. The garden's far bigger than the house and is always out of control, just the way I like it. There's always plenty to share. I share seeds with gardeners all over the world. If you live in Qatar or Vanuatu or New Zealand, I want to know about your garden. One man's weed is another man's awesome exotic.

As a Landscape Designer, I learned to build gardens that take care of themselves, If you understand what a plant needs and where it came from, you won't have to pour chemicals on it, tie it up, mow it down, or beat it into submission. You'll have the most magical garden in the world if you just listen to your plants.

I'll always tell you where each plant comes from - a moist, shady rainforest, the dry grasslands of South Africa, the rocky slopes of the Andes. You need to know your climate zone and how to use Google. These are plants for experienced gardeners and they may try your patience. But if they were easy, they'd be in Home Depot.

You're an advanced gardener. This is your place.

Let me know how I can help.

Please double check that your address is correct when ordering. For your protection and ours, we can only ship to the address you have provided. Please check and change (if necessary) the shipping address on your account before finalizing your purchase.

International orders: We have shipped successfully to countries all over the world. We ship via USPS and you will receive shipping confirmation and a tracking number via email from stamps.com. We can only track your order until it leaves the United States. Please allow at least 2 weeks for your package to clear customs and be delivered. Shipping is problematic in some countries and locations, and if you live in one of these places you probably already know that. If we recognize your location as on we have had trouble shipping to, we will contact you beforehand to see if you are willing to take the risk, or if you would like a refund.

Beyond that weight you will be asked to cover the cost of the additional shipping. ***

Once the order has left our premises, we can not be held responsible for customs delays. Most countries will have no trouble but we post this disclaimer in the off chance that there is an issue.
Additional policies and FAQs
Our Guarantee

We promise to offer fresh, top quality seeds from growers we know and trust. All seed is tested for purity, germination and vigor before being offered for sale. We do not sell hybrid or genetically modified seed.

Please check your order as soon as you receive it. Let us know if there are any problems and we will make things right.

Many of our seeds are rare and require special treatment. We provide germination guidance and recommend you research exotic seeds before ordering. Because we are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination failure due to improper planting or climate conditions. Please do your homework. You can look up your climate zone here: http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/PHZMWeb/
