Ve­seys Seeds

Manitoba Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

Now en­ter­ing their 79th year, Ve­seys Seeds of Prince Ed­ward Is­land is Canada’s largest mail or­der gar­den­ing busi­ness fea­tur­ing a va­ri­ety of cat­a­logues that in­clude Veg­etable & Flower seed, Herbs, Tool & Ac­ces­sories, Spring plant­ing Bulbs & Peren­ni­als, Fall plant­ing bulbs plus a broad range of Starter Plants, Fruits and Ber­ries.

Lo­cated in the ru­ral set­ting of York, PEI, Ve­seys op­er­ates a 40-acre re­search farm where ev­ery va­ri­ety of­fered to home and com­mer­cial gar­den­ers is grown in trial and tested by their cer­ti­fied lab­o­ra­tory. A ma­jor sup­plier of or­ganic seed va­ri­eties, Ve­seys has been a lead­ing source of or­ganic seed and sup­plies to grow­ers across the coun­try

As Canada’s largest im­porter of Dutch Bulbs, Ve­seys Fundrais­ing with Flower Pro­gram has taken Canada by storm these last 39 sea­sons with thou­sands of schools and non-profit groups across the coun­try rais­ing mil­lions of dol­lars through this pro­gram an­nu­ally. A won­der­ful pro­gram that not only raises these much needed funds but helps beau­tify the coun­try at the same time.

An in­ter­net leader since their first pres­ence on the web in 1996, Ve­seys newly de­vel­oped web site (Novem­ber 2017), of­fers not only thou­sands of gar­den­ing prod­ucts but also pro­vides plant­ing in­for­ma­tion, gar­den­ing ad­vice and a host of other in­ter­ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion tools with their cus­tomers coast to coast.­

Hav­ing prided them­selves on su­pe­rior prod­ucts and ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice since their in­cep­tion in 1939, Ve­seys pol­icy of hav­ing their cus­tomer be the judge of their qual­ity has cer­tainly gained the loy­alty of Cana­dian Gar­den­ers. As their guar­an­tee states, “If for any rea­son you are not com­pletely sat­is­fied with your pur­chase upon ar­rival, Ve­seys will re­place your prod­uct free of charge… no ques­tions asked.”

An icon in the gar­den­ing com­mu­nity for al­most eight decades, Ve­seys fam­ily owned ap­proach to cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion and loy­alty is sec­ond to none. Founder Arthur Ve­sey wouldn’t have it any other way.
