It has always been our goal to provide Canadian gardeners with only the best seed available. We should also note that our standards are the toughest in the world. Not only do we test all our seeds ourselves on a regular basis, we are required by Agriculture Canada to have our seed tested at labs authorized by them to ensure it meets or exceeds their standards for Canada No.1 Seed.
Additionally we are monitored by Agriculture Canada Inspectors throughout the season to ensure we meet these strict requirements. Be advised that seed is a "live organism" and the germination rates can vary year to year.
Most of our seed is packaged by machine. Some specialty varieties are machine counted and packaged. For all our vegetable seeds, you will see a line that states the number of ‘seeds per gram’ for that variety. Most bulk packages are sold by weight. The ‘seed per gram’ measurement is an approximation so please keep in mind that as seeds age they gradually lose moisture and this can affect the package weight. Some hybrid varieties are sold by the seed count and this information is stated in our paper catalogue and on our online catalogue
