WA orders go to the Quarantine WA office at Perth Airport for inspection before being sent to your shipping address by the Quarantine Officers.

The tracking number will stay in a 'Pending' status until Quarantine Officers have inspected your shipment at Perth Airport.

Nigella--Persian Jewels

I am anticipating the time to plant these wonderful seeds, but the frosts are still hitting us hard. Come spring, I will give you a heads up and let you know 👍🙏💜❤💙

Sharon Orbell
Wonderful customer service

I ordered Nigella (Love In A Mist) seeds to be given to mourners as a keepsake at a baby’s funeral. Plant something ethereal to grow to remember their little one. When we needed more seeds Happy Valley went out of its way to get them to me on time. Excellent customer service and excellent value. So kind and generous. I will go back to them when I am seeking eeds for my own garden.

Great, lots of pink, few blue and no white though

These now grow from self seeding all through my front garden which is great. Produced beautiful flowers and weathered frost and snow. Only issue was 85% were pink, 15% blue (which were my favourite) and no white flowers.

Sweet Seeds

Fabulously fast delivery of my seeds. Planted the nasturtium and waiting for the right time for nigella and chamomile. I’m looking forward to seeing their little sprouts popping up in my garden and reaping their flowers and herbal benefits.

Valerie Matsumoto
great service and great results

Thanks so much Happy Valley Seeds. Your website was informative and easy to navigate. Service was prompt and the seeds arrived well-packaged and labelled. Best of all the seedlings are all coming up! Cheers Valerie
