The Cottage Gardener

Helping home gardeners and market growers grow beautiful and productive gardens since 1996. Our customers tell us they love our seeds because of their high germination rates, generous quantities and fair prices! And when you plant Cottage Gardener seeds, you are helping to preserve genetic bio-diversity and save old, tried-and-true varieties from being lost forever.

We sell only open-pollinated seeds. We do not carry modern hybrids or GMO seeds.

Custom Seed Packets

The Cottage Gardener is now pleased to offer high-quality custom seed packets. Printed on 100% FSC – certified recycled paper, our packets are highly customizable and not limited to only a few pre-designed stock templates. We work one on one with you to create your unique vision. You can use your own artwork, monograms, logos or photographs, which make them perfect for wedding favours or business events. You choose your own sustainably-grown or certified organic seed from the hundreds of heirloom varieties we carry, pending availability. Every packet comes with planting instruction on the back, and is printed in-house. Custom seed packets are a eco-friendly, eye-catching and socially responsible way to reach your customers or show your appreciation.
