Looking for nonhydrid seeds?

For those who are putting together their seed orders -- or plan to after the holidays -- you might check out Fedco (for Federated Cooperative) Seeds, P.O. Box 520, Waterville, Maine 04903. It's definitely non-glitzy and geared specifically toward Northern Tier growers, but 70 percent of their seed offerings are nonhybrid, open pollinated. I'm not associated with Fedco (or Johnny's Selected Seeds, in Albion, Maine, another excellent source), but I do admire their work, their seed variety, and their ethics ("Many companies charge as much as they can get away with. At Fedco we charge as little as we can get by with.") They're worker/member-owned and operate literally on a shoestring, do all sorts of in-house seed tests. Highly recommended.

I bought my open-pollinated seeds at Heirloom Seeds. http://www.heirloomseeds.com/ The order arrived about 3-4 days later! Fast service, excellent products, reasonable prices. Just thought I would pass this info along.

Does anyone have a supplier in Canada? We can't import non-hybrid seeds from the States due to Agricultural concerns, so if anyone knows a Canadian supplier, it would be greatly appreciated.
