Jimson Weed (Stramonium) Available in Canada?
Answered by: Conrad Richter

I’m looking for Jimson Weed seeds. Your website says that you can only ship them outside of Canada due to import rules. But you’re in Ontario, aren’t you? Am I misreading this?

Hoping to have it shipped to St. Catharines.

Sorry about the old wording on the website. We have changed it to read: "Due to Canadian government restrictions, this item cannot be shipped to Canadian addresses." The Canadian government classifies Datura stramonium as a "prohibited noxious weed" and as such it cannot be sold in Canada. We can, however, continue to sell it outside of Canada which is why it is still listed in our catalogue.
