All visitors and purchasers must read and agree to these Terms and Conditions, which clarify the rights and obligations of Sow Local Seeds (“Sow Local Seeds” or “we” or “us”) and its online shop customers and website visitors (“you”).

Please read these Terms of Use carefully. By using or accessing the Sow Local Seeds Website and Online Shop (the “Site”), you agree to these Terms of Use.

Online Order Payments

All online sales must be made using our online shop checkout which is powered by Stripe. Sow Local Seeds accepts payment from credit cards. E-Transfers are accepted, with orders being held until the transaction is complete and verified. Acceptance of orders is subject to credit card verification procedures. We reserve the right to cancel an order if it does not meet our credit card verification standards or if the E-Transfer does not deposit into our account within 48 hours of order placement.

Once an order is submitted, Sow Local Seeds cannot change, modify or combine an order. Sow Local Seeds cannot change a method of payment once the order has been submitted.

In-Person Purchases

Sow Local Seeds accepts cash and E-Transfers as payment methods at in-person events and markets only. We reserve the right to hold your products until we have confirmation that the E-Transfer has been deposited into our account.

International Orders

Sow Local Seeds does not offer international shipping at this time.

Pricing And Taxes

All prices are in Canadian Dollars (CAD). Additional is a Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) of 15% as per the requirements of the Province of Nova Scotia for NS residents. Tax rates are calculated based on the shipping address you enter during Checkout.

Although Sow Local Seeds aims to provide accurate product and pricing information, errors and omissions may occur. Sow Local Seeds reserves the right to correct any errors in pricing or product information and to change the prices of products at any time, without prior notice. If there is an error in pricing, Sow Local Seeds reserves the right to refuse or cancel your order, to reverse any charges that have been applied and to contact you to request the placement of a new order at the correct price.

Seed Germination

The seeds in our shop are tested annually to ensure germination rates that exceed the federal minimums as laid out in the Canada Seed Act.

Our seeds will germinate if the growing instructions we provide are followed. For best results, please refer to the growing instructions on our seed packets, our online grow guides and garden resources (coming soon). We have found that many seed starting problems can be remedied by proper planning and an appropriate setup (ex: heat mats for heat-loving varieties). Starting with high-quality potting mix and providing adequate amounts of light, water, and consistent temperatures are important steps to successful seed starting.

Incorrect Orders

If you receive an incorrect order, please contact us immediately and we will correct our mistake. Thank you for your patience with human errors.

Returns, Replacements And Refunds

If your seeds do not perform after following our detailed instructions, please contact us immediately for support. We do not accept the return of seed packets. We work with customers on a case-by-case basis towards solutions of replacement or refund in the form of store credit.

Our guarantee is limited to the purchase price of the seed only. Shipping costs are non-refundable. Requests for refunds or replacements must be made within 30 days of purchase. Contact us using the contact form as soon as an issue arises.

Shipping Damage And Delivery

Sow Local Seeds is not liable for any damage or loss resulting from shipping or from crop failure, as once we hand parcels over to Canada. Post, they are out of our control. We cannot guarantee delivery as a result.

Note that since the Covid19 Pandemic, Canada Post has not been guaranteeing delivery times. Check with Canada Post for up to date information on their services.
