Gourd Seeds

All prices in Canadian dollars

Time to plant is fast approaching, and you can choose from some new and exciting seeds.

We buy only top rated seeds imported from reputable seed growers. These seeds have been germination tested. We will not replace seed due to poor germination as this is an indication of improper conditions. Please be diligent in germination procedures. Free growing information can be found in the Northern Dipper newsletter “Gourd Fever” found on line.

Each packet contains 10 - 12 seeds. Shipping is a flat rate of $2.75 up to four packs. Additional cost applied if order is in bulk. The days listed below each seed variety are "days to maturity" under normal gourd growing conditions.

Note: Northern Dipper only ships seed orders from mid January to May. Feel free to put in an order at any time and we will keep it on file and notify you before we ship.
