Keep Calm, Stay Well, And Garden On

  The Pantry is healthy and open for business. Orders usually ship within one or two weekdays. Thank you for your support!

Ordering Organic Fertilizers

Update, May 2020: Please note, I am currently unable to maintain my usual standard of next-day shipping. I am working hard to not fall behind by more than one week as I'm juggling supply chain disruptions and seasonally high order volumes. Canada Post too is facing longer delivery times during the virus pandemic. I truly appreciate everybody's patience and hope you and your spring gardens are thriving.

I ship in Canada only, but in the U.S. you can buy organic fertilizers and microbial inoculants from Phil.

Ordering of microbial inoculants and organic fertilizers can be done online by credit card or e-transfer. The tax will be calculated upon checkout based on your province.

You can also place an order over the phone with your credit card information.

Alternatively, you can pay Canada Post upon delivery (COD). They charge an additional $8 for this service which I will add to your order.

I also accept cash or cheque/money order, but I have to wait for cheques to clear before I can deliver or ship.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.


While I urge you to search for products locally to support your community and cut down on the environmental impacts of transportation, I carry many important products that are hard to find, therefore I am happy to ship to anywhere in Canada.

"Well it's 2:00pm Aug 30 and I got my order. That's less than 24hr service -- great. Will keep you in mind for additional items."Andrew

I ship with Canada Post and the costs are automatically added to your order. They are outlined in the table below, along with the approximate delivery times. I almost always ship within 24 hours. During the busiest season from March through June, it may take a couple of days longer. Let me know if you're in a rush and I will try to accommodate.

Because the cart calculates shipping rates based on the value of your order, rather than by weight and distance, the actual Canada Post rates may be different. If what you pay is less than what Canada Post charges, I carry the difference.

If it turns out that you pay significantly more (for example, a small but expensive order within BC) I will let you know and we can arrange for a credit or partial refund.

Should you be wondering about your order's delivery date, or should your order ever arrive damaged or not at all, please contact me right away by e-mail or phone. Through Canada Post's tracking system we can follow every parcel, every step of the way. Their service has proven very dependable during these past few years.

Pick Up

If you would prefer to pick up your order, simply contact me to arrange for a time. I live near the Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC and I keep a small inventory on hand.

In that case, be sure to choose the 'No Shipping' option when you checkout. You can still pay on-line, or by credit card, cash, or cheque when you come.


If you are ordering only books, the shipping is $10+GST per order, regardless of how many books you order.

Be sure to choose the 'For Books Only' option when you checkout. This does not apply if you are also ordering products.
