Castor Bean Seeds or Plants

(Question)

Where can I buy castor bean seeds or plants?

(Answer)

While castor bean seeds my not be available on the seed rack at your local nursery, they do seem to be readily available online.  I checked 5 seed companies that provide online, mail-order services and 3 of the 5 offered castor bean seeds.  I could not locate a source for plants.  One of the online nurseries I tried that offers both plants and seeds only had seeds – as well as a warning that the raw seeds are poisonous.

However, you may want to check out “Get the Jump on Spring” (held in February), “Seedy Saturdays and Sundays” (held throughout the year) and “Canada Blooms” (held in March).
