This year, I am going to try and grow some vegetables… I wanted to buy heirloom/organic/open pollinated with exception to various plants that wouldn’t grow up here without more extensive human involvement…

Seeds bought:
Saltspringseeds: while a BC company, they were unquestionably open pollinated/organic; and with slight reservations about viability in our zone 4 climate; I ordered 10 $3 seed packets from them. $6 shipping. I focused on typically early producing and hardy plants.

Halifax Seeds: Oh my, Halifax seeds… established 1866, Heirloom lists, lots of potential, but after questioning them about discrepancies between their ‘heirloom list’ and catalog, on how many of their heirloom listed plants were not open pollinated, and imo poor phone and email ’service’. I tried to minimize my order and ordered what more I could from saltspringseeds..

Dollar Store: 4 seed packets for a dollar, sell before Sept. 2006 was stamped on the back, all supposedly heirloom… So far they are all sprouting!
