Seed Shop Policies

How are your seeds grown? Are they certified organic?

The majority of the seeds are grown my by myself, with a smaller selection grown by the fabulous Populuxe Seed Bank volunteer growers. As we are at-home growers, becoming certified organic is not feasible.

Are your seeds germination tested?

Absolutely! I test all my seeds for germination not only for sale, but so I can record the number for seed banking purposes.

I do offer seed from previous years, and these seeds are always marked with the year they were grown. For example, in 2024 the fresh seed was harvested in 2023. So, any seed from previous years will be noted. While these seeds have had their germination rates tested at time of harvest, they may not be quite as high as fresh seed.

How is my information protected?

I use Paypal for all payments, so I never see any of your payment information. Additionally, my site is secured with an SSL certificate, so all information is encrypted. I will never use any of the info you provide for purposes other than processing your order, and I will never share or sell any of your information to a third party.

What funds are you prices in?

All prices are listed in Canadian dollars.

Returns & Exchanges

Due to the nature of seed and the inability for me to know your growing conditions, I cannot offer refunds. All current year seed is tested for germination before sale, to ensure that your seed is viable for this growing season.

Any previous year seed listed is purchased at the buyer’s risk. If the seed was retested, the listing will reflect that with the new germination rate.


All shipments are sent via Canada Post, in padded envelopes to ensure your seed doesn’t get crushed. Shipping is never increased when you order more seeds.

Shipping Internationally (outside of Canada)

Due to the nature of seed import laws, I can only ship tomatoes and peppers within Canada. Other edible varieties along with ornamental/dye plants can currently be sent outside of Canada. Please note due to strict EU import laws, I am not sending to any EU countries at this time.

When will my order be shipped?

All orders are shipping within 3-4 days of payment.
