1. Is online ordering safe through your website?

Yes, as all payments are processed through Paypal and their website and not this site.

2. Do you ship to the United States? Other countries?

Yes, I have shipped my seeds all over the world.  However, I strongly suggest that you become familiar with your own country's customs regulations concerning the importation of tomato/pepper seeds and inform me of any necessary information to be added to your envelope.

3. Do charge extra for shipping to the United States? Other countries?

No, Paypal does not allow for me to distinguish between domestic, United States or International addresses.  So to keep things simple, a flat rate of $3 is charged for all orders up to ten packets; postage is free for 11 or more packets.

4. Why is there no contact information posted?

As a high school teacher by day, I am sure you can appreciate my reluctance to post my home address and phone number.  Please email me with any questions or concerns.

5. Can I pick my seeds up?

I prefer to distribute my seeds via Canada Post or you may purchase them at Garden Retreat in the Calgary.

6. How many seeds are in each package?

25 hand selected seeds.  I, my wife or son do count and select every single seed for each envelope so mistakes are possible but, hopefully, rare. If you are not satisfied in any way please email me I will send you another packet of seeds.

7. What influences low germination?

Sometimes due to the way the post office handles letters through their mechanical sorters, there is the possibility of the seeds being crushed and no longer viable.

8. Will the seeds germinate next year, too?

Tomato seeds will remain viable for 10 years.  However, each passing year you will lose 5-10% germination.  In the first few years, you will probably not even notice a difference.  To ensure the viability of your seed, please store in a cool, dry and dark location.

9. What is your Privacy Policy?

I do not sell nor share your email address with any person, company, or organization.  The last thing I would wish upon anyone would be more unwanted emails.

10. Can you send me a print catalogue?

Unfortunately, my seed operation is simple too small to support the printing and distribution of a colour catalogue.  I prefer to put my catalogue online for your perusal and as an added benefit save some trees.

11. Do you offer wholesale pricing?

I do offer wholesale pricing to garden centres who resell my seed.  Since I produce my tomatoes in my backyard garden in the city of Airdrie, Alberta, Canada, I do not have the scale to offer large quantities of seed to other growers.

12. What is the size of the seed packet?

Seed packet is a standard #2 white coin envelope with a colour picture of the variety.

13. Who designed your webpage?

Me, with the help of Everweb.

14. Are your seeds GMO?

No.  My seeds are all open-pollinated and have never                 and will never come in contact with a GMO tomato.                            I have signed the Safe Seed Pledge.

15. Do you sell hybrid seed?

No.  All seeds are open-pollinated and thus you can save your own seed for the following year(s).

16. Are you certified organic?

No as the costs of certification are too prohibitive for my small backyard operation.  However, I am very passionate about maintaining my soils as organic.

17. Questions about how to grow tomatoes.

Please understand that I am very busy with my day job and growing vegetables that I may not be able to provide a quick answer to your query.  Google, the omnipresent tool of our time, will have an answer for you.  If you have a specific question concerning my varieties, or will they grow in my area, then I will provide a quick response.
