Starting to get a little stir-crazy? Don’t worry, you’re not alone (metaphorically, that is).

If you’re looking for an isolation project to undertake, now is a great time to become the plant parent you’ve always dreamed of. Harnessing some awesome online Canadian stores, you’ll be growing lettuce by May.

For literally everything you’ll need to start from scratch, visit West Coast Seeds. They have anything you need to start your home agriculture setup. Lights, seeds, flower bulbs, fertilizer, even the dirt and containers needed to start planting are available for order online.

They also have articles and a How to Grow section on their website for those who might need a few tips. This is the best place for anyone starting from scratch.

Another great starting point is Halifax Seeds. They have a specific section for indoor gardening on their website and a multitude of articles on how to grow specific plants, flowers, and vegetables.

If you’ve already got a pretty good setup going but haven’t been able to get out to the garden stores, both the Natural Seed Bank and Ontario Seed Company have a wide catalogue of herb, fruit, vegetable, and flower seeds for purchase. Natural Seed Bank is, understandably, a little backed up at the time of this article, so be sure to check the website to see when their orders open back up.

For those of us who have a long list of dead plants to our name (RIP to all the overwatered cacti), Plant Collective, out of Toronto, Ontario, and West Coast Gardens, out of Surrey, BC, have pre-grown houseplants, air plants, and succulents to choose from.

All of these can be delivered to your door, along with the necessary accessories to set up the plant den you’ve been planning. Be sure to check their websites for tips on how to keep your green babies alive and thriving, even in the brittle Canadian winter.
