When will products be delivered?

After receiving your order, we process it and ship it within two business days. Seasonal products (garlic, potatoes, nematodes, mason bees) will ship as noted on this site according to availability.

The peak of our order processing season is March, when processing may take more than 48 hours due to heavy traffic. Once your parcel has been shipped, you can expect it within a few days in Canada, slightly longer to the U.S. For information about back-ordered items, please visit the Ordering and Shipping page.

How are shipping charges calculated?

The Internet shipping calculator is fairly accurate, but there are variations depending on dimension/weight and size of the box. The exact shipping will be charged once the order is boxed and weighed. The amount is often less than the amount originally quoted on your order confirmation. If for some reason it is significantly more, we will contact you for confirmation before shipping. It’s a good idea to find out how are shipping charges calculated before you place your order.

You will be able to select from a range of shipping methods (including pickup) as you complete the order process.

West Coast Seeds is committed to keeping shipping costs as low as possible, and we use a number of carriers to effect this. We use Canada Post, Canpar, and/or Purolator or Greyhound to select the best service for your order and your location. If you are concerned about shipping charges, please contact us toll free at 1-888-804-8820 before you place your order. Our Customer Service team will make sure your order gets shipped by the method that suits your needs.

What areas do you ship to?

We will ship anywhere in North America. However our focus is on the Maritime Pacific Northwest region, and we have selected seeds that will do particularly well in this climate. The seeds that we sell have been tested for growing in our local environment of south coastal British Columbia.

Please note: Due to border restrictions, we cannot ship garlic or potatoes into the U.S. Mason Bee cocoons when ordered will be shipped from within the U.S. to our U.S customers.
