Order processing time
We're seeing an unprecedented volume of orders and are working our hardest to fulfill and ship orders as soon as possible in the order they were received. We are currently shipping ~3 weeks from date of order placement and customers will receive an email upon order shipment. Thanks for your patience and support for our seed and seed growers.
Any tips for ordering this year?
Getting an order in as soon as possible is recommended, in the quantity needed while being mindful of ordering only what you use. As we develop our resources we encourage you to check out the excellent seed order formula post from our friend Dan Brisebois here and Johnny’s planning tools and calculators here.
Can anyone order bulk seeds?
Yes! Our aim in providing bulk variants is to have quantities of seed available for farmers who need larger volumes. However we do not limit bulk variants and any customer is welcome to purchase seed at the variant they need pending inventory availability. Use the “size” drop down menu on any product to see what variants are available.
Placing an order
To order our seeds, browse through our products on our website and click on the desired items. You can add items to a cart. To finalize your order, go to "Cart" (top right corner) and enter the required information.
As a small business we only accept orders via our website at this time. BC Eco Seed Co-op does not have an exclusive business line, if there is a barrier for you placing an order online send us an email and we’ll ensure an order can be placed: email@example.com
Can I change my order?
Once an order has been placed, we cannot add or subtract items. If you want additional items not included in your original order, please place a new order. We are unable to combine separately placed orders. An exception may be able to be made in extreme circumstances, please contact us if this is the case: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you offer the option to pick up?
We no do not have a public storefront and are unable to accommodate pickup orders or onsite visits at this time.
Shipping & handling fees
Our shipping and handling fees vary from $3 for small orders to $30 for large orders calculated at checkout.An average order (~25-40 with a range of lighter and heavier seeds) is usually between $7-12 dollars. Handling is what happens behind the scenes in our co-op and a stamp on an order doesn't capture that! We appreciate our customers trust that rates are calculated as affordable as possible and true to cost.
Do you charge sales tax?
Small packets of garden seeds sold to consumers are taxable. Flower seeds are also taxable because these seeds are not used to produce food for human consumption. For more info see the CRA page here.
We encourage feedback on how our seeds perform for you! Let us know what grows well or anything that disappoints you. We guarantee that every seed lot we sell is germination tested and has been found to meet or exceed industry and federal germination standards. Should you find that any of our seeds under perform for you, please let us know and we will work to replace, refund or credit the product within the year the product was purchased. We are working to add more resources on successful seed starting, on the whole using good quality potting mix and providing adequate amounts of light, water, and consistent temperatures will help ensure success.
