Seeds

Saanich Native Plants offers one of the largest native plant seed selections on Southern Vancouver Island.

Seeds are collected from our own stock and sold in pre-made mixes, packages, and in wholesale quantities.  We also offer custom mixes suited to a variety of conditions and customer needs.  Seed orders can be picked up from the nursery or mailed to your business or home. Allow 3-7 days for your order to be prepared and a few days for mailing time.

You can always trust that our wildflower seeds are local indigenous species that are from field grown plants (not wild collected) and grown without the use of herbicides, pesticides (including neonicotinoids), or chemical fertilizers.

For custom collection or larger orders please order in advance so that you are not disappointed. Because many native species require a fall planting, we sell out of many species through the early fall and replenish our stock through the summer. We sell our seeds on a first come, first serve basis. We are taking orders now!


Consult our Growing Native Plants From Seed handout for information about native plants easily grown from seed and when to sow them.

Farewell-to-Spring (Clarkia amoena)                                       Woolly Sunflower (Eriophyllum lanatum)
Producing native seeds requires planting of single-species beds so that the seed can be harvested efficiently. These beds are largely care free and, in addition to producing seeds, contribute to soil development, pollinator enhancement, and wildlife habitat. 

*Please note in the table below the cost column is $/gram, not $/packet* Packages can be made up in bulk amounts and have a minimum of $5/package. Our standard package sizes are $5 and the number of seeds within depends on which species it is (e.g. Nodding Onion $5 package has 1 gram of seeds; Columbia Brome $5 package has 10 grams of seed).
