Hello, I live in Oxford Canterbury NZ. I start my garden and looking for seeds for Strawberries, Rasberries and Currants for the next season. Can you help me or tell me where I can get These seeds? I hope you can help me. Kind regards Arnd Reimann

Re strawberries, I've always heard that growing from seeds can be very challenging. I would recommend getting some plants and let them grow runners to build up your collection. I started with 10 plants 18mths ago and now have heaps and heaps of them. I contacted the growers Zealandia (www.zealandia.co.nz) to discuss what variety would be best to grow in my climate. They were very helpful. No experience with Raspberries and Currants.
