Mount Royal Seeds is an independent Canadian supplier of tree and shrub seeds as well as selective woodland plant and flower seeds. We offer only quality seeds that we hand-pick ourselves from healthy and vigorous plants or sourced from reliable suppliers. Most seeds are of local provenance that are inspected, cleaned and properly stored to maintain viability.
Growing trees from seed can be a very rewarding experience. From the child-like anticipation and excitement of seeing a seed germinate to enjoying its various stages of growth and development into a beautiful tree that will grow and develop alongside you and your family and benefit the environment and local wildlife too.
Plants that are propagated from seed help conserve biodiversity. Currently many trees and other landscape plants grown commercially are reproduced by cloning. Unfortunately this reduces genetic diversity and can compromise the long-term ability of our trees and woodland plants to adapt to change and thrive. By planting seeds and growing trees we engage in environmental stewardship that sustains ecosystems, beautifies our world and leaves a living legacy.
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
– Chinese Proverb
