Looking for Seeds

With Spring being just over a month away, I’ve been thinking about what to plant in my garden this year.  In the past, I usually plant some tomatoes, bell pepper, peas and herbs.  Since researching into local foods, I’ve found a couple of places that sell heirloom vegetable seeds.  So this year, I’m going to be more adventurous in my gardening.  I plan on heading down to Seedy Saturday (a grassroots seed exchange and gardening fair) and buy myself some unusual seeds and grow them in a mini-greenhouse. 

On a side note – I found out about Seedy Saturday from an ad in a new magazine called edible Toronto – a magazine dedicated to local foods in the Toronto area.  Interesting articles and lots of good resources.  I picked mine up at the Dufferin Grove Market a few weeks ago.  You can also view the articles online.

Here are some stores that sell heirloom and/or organic seeds:

(All of these stores are in our database, you can Search by Name for more information.)

  • Urban Harvest – They sell seeds, seedlings and garden supplies.  They have an online store and a nursery that operates during the growing season only.
  • Clover Roads Organic Farm – has an online seed store, mostly heirloom tomato varieties.
  • Everdale Organic Farm – They sell seeds at their farm store.
