I will say that many of the Canadian seed companies that I have purchased from sadly seem to have gone out of business. We had a great local seed company Stellar Seeds for example. I couldn’t find the Cottage Gardener anymore either. I’ve only grown seeds from a small amount of Canadian seeds, but I tried to find as many as I could. I couldn’t find any seed companies for the northern Canadian territories ( I tried!).

Canadian gardening definitely has it’s challenges.
