Best source for seedlings


As it seems the 2020 plant sale at the Toronto Botanical Garden will not proceed this year, I’m wondering if you have any recommendations on where to purchase plants this year. Specifically, I am looking for pepper plants that I do not have room to start from seed, and would be interested in growers that will deliver. I’ve looked at Vesey’s and they do not seem to sell and not peppers, which I would be interested in.

Thank you very much,


Thanks for contacting Toronto Master Gardeners. Unfortunately, as a not-for-profit group, we are not allowed to recommend specific vendors for plants or products. However, if you search online, you will find Canadian vendors who will ship pre-started plants within Canada.

Good luck with your peppers. We are all in a very similar boat due to COVID-19, and will be hunting for alternatives to our usual plant sources.
