I ship with Canada Post and can ship anywhere in Canada.

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

The fees are outlined in the table further down the page. There is also a free local pickup option.

I’d like to ship for free, but then I would have to make my products much more expensive. Even at my current rates, I actually lose money on shipping.

The rates I charge are a compromise between covering some of my costs and keeping products affordable for you.

You can keep down shipping fees by optimizing your order (for example, $25 shipping gets you up to $124 worth of products, and the bigger the order, the relatively lower the fee), and by teaming up with a gardening friend (share an order and split the shipping).

I almost always ship within 24 to 48 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.

“I just stumbled across your site and have barely begun to troll it, but I already know that this is the site/business that I would want to provide if I were to do the same thing! And not only Canadian but out of BC! Wow! “Fundamental ingredients for plants and soil”. It couldn’t be said any better. Well done.”

“I received my order and was quite impressed by the quality of product and service. It is apparent to me that the gardeners pantry is about more than profits; a rarity in our world today. I’m sure I will be doing business with you once again.”
