Organic seeds available in some varieties. I always get near 100% germination with veggie seeds from these guys. They ship to Canada and the States.

www.terraedibles.ca
Organically grown heirloom seeds. These folks have an absolutely INCREDIBLE selection of tomato seeds. Really.

Lee Valley is awesome, but somebody already listed it.

Spring planting calendar -- you plug in your last frost date, and it spits out when to start your seedlings!

If you need a lot of plants, trees, and/or shrubs but don't have a lot to spend, go here!!!

Shipping is $9 no matter how much you order. 1 year warranty.



Thank you for this endorsement! I had never heard of this company. We just ordered a huge ton of flowers and plants, including a bunch of thornless berries and grapes and eight new fruit trees. I'm so excited!

You've already listed 2 of my three favorite companies (Johnny's Select Seeds and Baker Creek), so here's the other company in my top 3: http://www.anniesheirloomseeds.com/

One of the things we bought from Annie's last year was heirloom potatoes. They performed great, even in our clay soil. We saved most of them for replanting this year. But, the few we indulged in eating were fantastic.
