Some of the easiest to grow plants are the most beautiful and CSL has all the foolproof plants that will make you smile – no matter your space, time, or growing conditions. We’ve got the plants that tick every box of your garden wishlist.
If you want…Quick growing edible Flowers
Nasturtiums produce bright, bold, edible flowers that are quick to sprout from seed.
If you want…Beautiful Scented Blooms
CRÈME DE LA CRÈME PHLOX
Pastel colours perfect for a border, these puffy clusters of individual petals are breathtaking. Best of all, their intoxicating fragrance will make you swoon. brecksbulbs.ca
If you want…Exotic, Rare Edible
Treasure these seeds as the spiny, vegetables they produce are uncommon outside of Italy. Crunchy and pleasantly bitter, they are a cut-and come again, cold hardy wonders. westcoastseeds.com
If you want…Cold Tolerant, Rewarding Produce
GUELPH MILLENNIUM ASPARAGUS
These crowns will bear in less time than most asparagus which takes several years to produce spears. As asparagus can be expensive in grocery stores, the first harvest is a real treat. westcoastseeds.com
If you want…To Grow on a Windowsill
GIFT A GREEN MICROGREENS
There’s no reason to give up gardening just because you lack a plot of land. If you only have a sunny windowsill consider microgreens. We tried Gift a Green’s basil (which are notorious for dying on us) and they sprouted within days thanks to a coir growing medium, easy to grow instructions and lots of tender care.

If you want…To Grow in a Container
Think outside the box – reuse and repurpose old items like shoes, wine boxes, or old coffee tins. Always provide drainage (bore holes in the bottom of the container and add stones, gravel or old broken pots). Take care that the roots do not become pot bound.
If you want…Lovely Floriferous Bloom
They’re not a finicky as you think. Lush, bold and surprisingly easy to grow, these flowers enhance any garden.
