Welcome to Salt Spring Seeds’ website and online heritage and heirloom seed catalog

Two for One from Now Until December 25th!

From now until December 25th, we will double any seed order. All you have to do is order in the regular way and we will give you an extra seed packet for each and every variety you order. (But just 1 of each.)

This will give you the opportunity to pass on the beauty and bounty of heirloom, open-pollinated seeds to friends, neighbours, relatives, children and community seed banks. Canadian orders only.


This is our 31st year of promoting a safe, sustainable and local agriculture. It is very gratifying to now see so many individuals and communities embracing this concept! We hope that some of the vegetables, beans, grains and herbs in this catalogue will help you to become more self-reliant in food and medicine.

All our seeds are organically grown, untreated, open-pollinated and non-GMO. We grow all our own seeds and sell only our most recent harvest. We fill orders year-round and usually within a day or two of receiving your requests. 

New Book: Awesome Ancient Grains and Seeds by Dan Jason. This book is hot off the press and I think it might hit the bestseller list like my previous book The Power of Pulses.

Number of Seeds in a Packet.  Click on any of the crops on the left side menu and you'll find the number of seeds in a packet at the bottom of the page. We never get complaints about not enough seeds!

Printed Catalogue.  We'd be happy to mail you the printed seed catalogue for $2.

Phone orders. Sorry but we don't yet accept orders over the phone. You can send a cheque or money order through the mail if you don't wish to pay online. If so, you can choose the Pay By Cheque option after you've selected all your seeds.

Shipping Charges. We expedite most orders in a padded envelope for a $10 shipping fee but if your order is for $12 or less, we wrap your seeds in a standard letter with a $2 shipping charge. During September to November, most orders are for garlic and need to be shipped in a box. If you order 1-3 seed packets during garlic season, we will refund most of your shipping charges online.

Overseas Orders?  We send our Overseas orders airmail through Canada Post.

Questions? I usually answer emails and phone calls the day I receive them. dan@saltspringseeds.com  1-250-537-5269

Thank you for supporting small agriculture. Best wishes for happy sowing and great growing in 2018!
