On March 10th, all Seedy Saturdays have been cancelled for the year due to Covid-19 concerns. Thank you all who attended to support us small independent seed savers. If you feel you’ve missed out on purchasing seed (or plants) check out the links to the Seedy Saturday/Sunday events as most list vendors. Its never too late.

Also….we will not be attending the VanDusen Botanical Garden’s Spring 2020 Plant Sale as that event has been cancelled as well. If you live in BC, we can ship plants to you. Contact us via: admin “at” twiningvinegarden.com

Keep in mind we only bring a fraction of our vast seed selections to Seedy Saturday/Sunday events. Feel free to make out an order and pick it up at an event we’ll be attending. We will refund your shipping on the spot, but if you somehow can’t attend, we’ll ship it.

Happy growing!
