Re: [APD] Mail Order Plants in Canada

I've been happy with http://www.aquariumplants.com/ - a US company but they
have a 'distribution centre' in Winnipeg and can ship anywhere in Canada.
Pretty good selection. I've ordered from them a few times and with the
exception of some Heteranthera zosterifolia, which arrived looking like a
bag of muck, the plants have always been in good shape. I believe they only
ship Canadian orders during the first week of every month though. Also, keep
in mind the temperature at Winnipeg this time of year!

There is an aquarium store in your area (Richmond now I think, they used to
be in Delta but recently moved) called Fin-omenal Fish which often has an
excellent selection of plants. Their website seems to be down at the moment
though. There are several other good gardener-friendly aquarium stores in
the Vancouver area if I recall, but I can't remember their names at the
You could also ask on http://www.bcaquaria.com, there is a lively plant
trading thing going on there. They'll at least know what stores you should
check out.
