I'm seeing pictures as normal. Maybe you hit a short period when it was down for maintenance?

Thank you

I am so happy to hear that once in a while a package arrives surprisingly quickly!

It has been very bad with postal delays this year. Some orders were 'lost' in the mail for 4-5 weeks in February and March, mostly to the USA, but also a few to Europe and in Canada. It has not been so bad in the previous years.

I was surprised Tania that it only took 7 days to get all the way down here. I'm a little late posting they had arrived, sorry.

The hard part is you have so many lovely choices it is hard to decide. : )

Seven days is all it took for my order as well. Thank you! While none will be grown this year, I like knowing that they are here and ready to go for the 2017 garden.

As usual the Tomato seeds get here almost even before I have finished the order...LOL and with the cool stamps as well ....
The Postal Gods seem to view Tatiana's with favoured status ...LOL

Dear folks,

Unfortunately Canada Post workers are seriously thinking about going on strike, so we will not be able to mail seeds if this happens, and until the strike is over.

So if some of your customers had an "emergency" seed order need



would you still accept a private / fedex/ courier type delivery as long as the

customer paid the private post ???

This will only work for canadian customers, but I think the folks in Canada should have planted the gardens by now

Tania .... What a bummer for you. Hopefully if they do strike it won't be for long. When folks start major moaning about not getting their mail or having bills paid on time sent through mail, usually gov steps in and gets things moving again.

Please keep us updated.

Last time they did it it lasted 2 months. Lots of losses for small businesses. It hurts everybody.

The postal service prices went up tremendously last year, and the service got so slow, it is beyond belief. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times I had to respond to customers inquiries about seeds not arriving within 2 weeks
