    Where do you get your vegetable seeds from?

    I have bought from several Canadian sources in the past and like Lindengerg's to mention one.
    One that came to my attention recently because they also offer grain seeds is Prairie Garden Seeds. Have any of you bought seed from them?

    Prairie Garden Seeds

    If you have any other sources you'de like to mention, please do.
    thank you.

    I buy from Dam Seeds and have always had a great experience. Their web site is http://www.damseeds.com/ It's out of date, but they will send you a catalogue if you call.

    OSC which if you live in Ontario know that they are the company with a seed display in almost every feed, hardware or cornerstore in the province. But don't discount them just because they are widespread..They do have a good selection of heritage varieties, and to their knowledge do not sell GMO seeds of any kind.

    Another former fave of mine is Vesey's Seeds from PEI. They've become a little too trendy for me in recent years. Gone are some of the package deals that I liked, but still a good selection of seeds.

    I too order from william dam seeds, they are excellent and very affordable. i also order my heirloom seeds from the seedsavers exchange in the states, the seeds are a bit more money but they have amazing variety and alot of hard to find seeds,

    Geesh! You gave me a start! I was thinking maybe they had to shut down for growing the wrong kind of "herbs" or something! :D

    For those who missed this on the giant pumpkin thread, there is a new org for giant veggie growers in Ontario. Not much action on the messageboard, but lots of info.
