After 7 days, the order is considered unwanted and will be restocked for other use.

Once the customer is notified the order is ready, it is their responsibility to pick up the goods. No pre-orders taken for Asparagus roots.

Do you offer a Large Order Discount?
5% may be deducted from orders where the seed portion is over $350.00 if paying by cheque or money order, 3% if paying by credit card, E-Transfer, or Debit in store. Discount is applicable to catalogue pricing only. It does not apply to specially priced or quoted items. Discount applies to seed only and is applied before taxes on sub-total. Discount doesn’t apply to hardgoods, rootstock, onion bulbs, garlic bulbs, or glad bulbs.
Do you make substitutions?
As the seed industry does experience crop failures or seed shortage, it is our company practice to provide, when possible, substitute varieties for any that are not available. We attempt to choose a substitute that resembles the unavailable one as close as possible. If you do not want a substitute, please indicate so when you place your order and we will cancel the item instead of providing a substitute.
How do you handle backorders?
We try our best to ship orders without backorders however sometimes items are delayed do to crop issues or supply problems. In this case backorders will be shipped upon arrival of items at no cost to the customer. If there are multiple items backordered we do try to consolidate shipments.
