Anywhere in SA that I can buy Amaranthus seeds, red and green

I would check the internet. there are a lot of seed companies that have alternative, heritage and less common seeds. You may also get them from a community garden or permaculture group. One seed supplier in SA is but there a a number of other suppliers listing them on the internet. Trust this helps.
