Ordering From Canada:

Wildflower Seeds and Flower Seed Packets may be shipped to Canada.
We have shipped wildflower seeds to our gardening friends in Canada for over 30 years. Agriculture Canada maintains a list of certain species that we cannot ship and our systems will catch those orders before they are charged. Certain orders may require inspection and documentation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. There may be an additional charge for this service. We primarily ship to Canada via U.S. Postal / Canada Post and transit times vary by province. For faster service, please call us at (877) 309-7333 or email Customer Service so we may assist.

Live Plants and Bulbs cannot be shipped outside the US.
The United States Department of Agriculture simply does not allow us to ship any live plants or bulbs to any foreign country including Canada. (For Alaska and Hawaii, see below.)

Our shipping costs are the same for all products, and even if your order requires more than one shipment, there are no extra costs. These take into account any special handling fees required for sending seed products to Canada.

Special Instructions for shipping to Alaska or Hawaii

Alaska & Hawaii:
We can only ship wildflower seeds, seed packets and hard goods to Alaska, Hawaii.

Shipping Outside the United States and Canada

We're sorry, we cannot ship any of our products beyond the US and Canada. While we are anxious to extend our high standards of customer service and quality products to our friends worldwide, individual country regulations and long transit times to many areas have made it impossible.
