Hello I would live to grow luffa & make soaps with them to sell. Please advise me where I am able to buy it. Thank you

Hi Zarina, I don't know anything about this company that is located in your area, but I found a local seed company called Seeds and Plants South Africa. Not all seed companies offer luffa seeds as you probably have discovered no matter where you garden. The website site looks very professional with a wide variety of selections. The Best, Donna
