No luck with the Dwarf Sweet William at any of our local Dollarama stores...and no luck at our Superstore for the Better than Bonemeal product...I imagine it will be full price come spring...I'll keep looking though.

Hey gwyn, I just got home from shopping and was at dollarama. I got six packs of seeds, but as I didn't need veggie seeds (although I did get some kholrabi and cherry belle radishes), it was hard to find flowers....my dollarama had mostly veggies.
Hopefully other stores have more selection.

who is disappointed to see that dollarama is becoming a store that is not really a dollar store any more! :(

If you ever go to the dollar store again, look for the Dwarf Sweet Willimas. They are gorgeous!! They grow about 7 inches tall and are great for the border. I will never be without them again. That's where I got the original seeds a couple of years ago and am starting to have quite the spread in the gardens.

Oh, and something else you gals might like to look into. PC Better Than Bonemeal. For some unknown reason this product is being carried in the floral department of our Superstore - your Loblaws? in Ontario - at this time of year and it is 1/2 the price at $4.44 for a bag. I have bought 6 bags in the last few grocery shopping trips. It's the only product I buy in such a form to add to the gardens in the spring and it has never failed me. So heads-up!! :O)

Thanks for the reminder tiffy! I forgot about that (the better than bonemeal) We do have Superstore here in SW ont. also so will make sure i make the trip to see if our store has it.
Had to run out for dog food last night and since Pet Valu is right near dollarama, I popped in to see if I had missed the dwarf sweet william. They did have more seeds out, but just more of the same...no dwarf sweet william.
I did get some 'super duplex double' sweet william a couple of weeks ago from WM so am anxious to grow them.

Went back and got some more seeds at the Dollarama.
Yes they do carry more veggies than flowers.

However considering we had a long weekend, did not get around to WSing...will try to get them out this weekend

Hey Poppy88
do get some. I love it!! It is a biennial though so no blooms until next year. They are definitely worth the wait.

Home Hardware usually has a better price on seeds than Canadian Tire or Home Depot. They carry OSC seeds rather than the more expensive McKenzie seeds. Most are under a $2 a pack if you're looking for others that Dollarama doesn't stock.

I was just in one of our HHs and found some of their seeds (probably last year's) for 30 cents a pack. Not a huge flower variety, again mostly veggies, but I did pick up some radishes and some african daisies and a morning glory mix.
(never enough seeds you know!! lol!)

I bought 2 packs of cucumbers and a pack of tomato starfire improved to test. After 2 weeks, I finally see cotyledons. Hope that the end result will be good.

Here is a link that might be useful: Photo of the cucumbers and tomato cotyledons
