Where Do You Get Your Seeds?

Where do you buy seeds for your garden? What are your favourite seed companies?

I frequently buy my seeds online. I love heirloom seeds!  Some of my favorite Canadian sources are listed below.  Click on the names to visit the websites.

Heritage Harvest Seeds
....check out this article about Heritage Harvest Seeds. 

Salt Spring Seeds
....also check out this article about Salt Spring Seeds.

The Cottage Gardener
...and another article, this one about The Cottage Gardener!

Annapolis Seeds
...based in Nova Scotia.

I have had great experiences ordering from all of these companies. Heritage Harvest stands because they have always included a free packet of seeds with my orders and they have a fantastic variety of rare heirloom beans varieties. Salt Spring Seeds stands out because of their genuinely friendly customer service, the excellent selection of medicinal herbs, and a page devoted to 1/2 price seeds.

And for sprouting seeds, I love Mumm's Seeds in Saskatchewan!  (More about Mumm's Seeds HERE).
Brew a pot of tea, make yourself comfortable, and browse through Cyndi's Catalog of Garden Catalogs, an extensive directory of American & Canadian seed and gardening catalogs, organized by catagories such as heirlooms, grasses, tropical, supplies and tools, etc.  Enjoy!
