10 Canadian seed companies that you can still order from online

Social Sharing

Places to stock up on seed packets, soil and more

Whether as a form of stress-relief or to create a reliable source of food, gardening has perhaps never seemed so appealing to so many. In a year where browsing your gardening centre may not be possible, seeds play an even more critical part — and they are in high demand. Although these little packets are incredibly popular these days, there are so many seed suppliers still shipping the products needed to get a garden growing at home this spring. In fact, their catalogues contain just about everything you could ever want to grow in your backyard or on your balcony — plus the tools to tackle it. In search of flowers, fruit and veggies to sow, we rounded up ten Canadian companies that are still accepting online orders right now.

Veseys

This PEI seed company is over 80 years old and offers cross-country shipping. Their selection includes vegetables, flowers, fruit, herbs and more, plus you can add an assortment of gardening tools you may need to your order.

Edgebrook Farm Curated Seed Co. and Stems Flower Farm

This husband and wife Ontario seed supplier duo offer up lots of options for growing flowers and vegetables. Their flower farm supplies local florists and lucky for us, we can get in on the online seed orders too. Tip: if you live in the Cookstown area, their fresh-cut blooms will be available for contactless pickup and porch delivery starting early summer.

The Seed Company by E.W. Gaze

A go-to for gardeners and farmers alike, this Newfoundland seed supplier has been around since 1925. In addition to all of the flower, vegetable, and grass seeds you seek (including a Jigg’s Dinner seed kit), this spot offers maple tapping supplies, a selection of soils, and seeds for something called a cucamelon! Their products are available for no-contact pickup, in-town delivery, and shipping.

Incredible Seeds

This Nova Scotian seed producer’s 2020 catalogue is live and shoppable online. You’ll find heirloom, open-pollinated vegetable seeds along with fruit and tree seeds, live plants and more on their site. Orders are shipping via Canada Post, and with the increase in demand, they’re posting which day’s orders they’re working on so that you have an idea of where yours is in the queue.

West Coast Seeds

Based in Vancouver, this B.C. seed company’s catalogue is quite fulsome; veggies, herbs, ornamental grasses, mulches and soils — they’ve got ’em. While you can still order online, the company has limited their daily orders intake, due to COVID-19 operational changes.

McKenzie Seeds

A popular pick across Canada, this Alberta-based seed company offers country-wide shipping. After 122 years in the industry, they have a wide range of offerings, including a section dedicated to heirloom varieties, and a ‘brand new for 2020‘ spotlight.

William Dam Seeds

Based just outside of Dundas, Ontario, this family-run company supplies Canadian farmers and gardeners with vegetable, herb, flower, and greencrop seed — and even catnip. You can also add tools, soils, and fertilizers you may require right now to your online order, too.

Annapolis Seeds

Based in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, this company specializes in heirloom and open pollinated seeds, and they proudly consider their collection to be “a living seed bank for the Maritimes and Eastern Canada”. All of their products — which boast the wide variety of vegetables, grain and flowers, and even peanuts — are either grown right on their farm or by other farmers in Atlantic Canada. They offer international online shipping for their seeds, and Canada-wide shipping for their seeds and selection of live plants and roots.

W. H. Perron

Known for their mail-order catalogue of over 1,000 products, this Quebec-based business also offers online shopping. Not sure what would work best in your yard? Their site features a handy hardiness zone search function that can help guide you in your seed selection.

T&T Seeds

This Winnipeg-based company’s 2020 catalogue boasts 110 pages of seeds and other gardening products to peruse. You can even order a greenhouse should you desire! You can order online, over the phone, or even via fax or mail, and if you live in the Winnipeg/Headingley area, contactless pickups at their shop are also an option. Plus, they will ship anywhere in Canada.

The Cottage Gardener @ www.cottagegardener.com

Your link leads nowhere and my research has led me to The Cottage Gardener Heirloom Seedhouse, agricultural cooperative, also of Newtonville, Ontario, Canada, whos Facebook page, (this wont let me post a link) where in September of 2018 they announce that they are discontinuing their (virtual) retail business, probably in part due to a major loss of seedlings in April, refered to in another post. The “about” tab of the Facebook lists their website as the same (www dot cottagegardener dot com) you have given and the link goes to the same dead end . There are two phone numbers listed which I did not try; 905-242-0470, and 905-786-2204.

grass replacement for blvd.

I got rid of the grass on our blvd. a few yrs. ago and planted thyme, but the grass and dandelions (from the centre of our cul-de-sac)
came back. Is there a very thick groundcover for a dry sunny area where dandelion seeds won’t be as likely to grow?
