Because Veseys ships seasonal and perishable items, we work very hard to ensure that you receive your order at the proper time for planting in your area. Orders are shipped via Canada Post Expedited Parcel Post, unless otherwise noted. We use your hardiness zone as well as weather information to decide when we can ship your order to you. If for example you live in a Northern area but own a greenhouse to extend your season, please let us know so that we can make adjustments where possible. Below you will find a detailed guideline as to when you can expect to receive your order. If we have your email address, we will be able to send you an email notification to let you know when your order has shipped.

SEED ORDERS

Seed is always in season at Veseys. Regardless of the time of year, all orders for seed and non-perishable goods like Tools and Supplies are usually shipped via Canada Post within 5 business days unless Express Post or Courier is requested; in which case we will make every attempt to ship within 24 hours.

Any backordered seed items will be shipped as soon as they become available.
