    Eagle Creek Seed Potatoes in Alberta has a fantastic selection of potato varieties for your garden. I ordered a sampling for the first time this year and we planted them yesterday. Efficient/trackable shipping, really well packaged. Can't wait to see how they grow!

    Online, as well as trading with people locally and the US. My award winning sunflower that grew over 20ft, and giant tomatoes and zucchini came from acquaintances in the US

    Cannot remember where we discussed this summer those Canada 150 tulip bulbs that were exclusive to one nursery.
    Happened to see in one of Home Hardware's current flyers (expiring today) that you can purchase a 25 bulb pack of the red& white bulbs for $12.97.

    Just in case this is a deal for you, contact your local Home Hardware store.

    Fortinos Ancaster has a Burpee Seeds display on the east side of the floral department.
    Local Canadian Tire has at least two large seed displays now in-store.

    Home Hardware has its seed spin racks out. One OSC seeds rack and one for the Aimers Organic Seeds too. There were two other brands on racks as well. I plan on getting plain basil (got spicy by mistake last year) and meslcun mix to fill in spots in a narrow flower bed. Could use a new flower seed--a showy double pirouette petunia.

    Seed Companies in Canada (list) - Seeds of Diversity

    Each entry includes a brief description of the businesses and websites and/or email addresses for the businesses. I have made purchases from several of the ones on this list and was very pleased with all of them.
