April 10, 2016: We are sold out of nearly everything for spring shipping. If you placed your order before April 10, it's either on its way or it will be shipped in the next few days. We will have ample stock of our main perennial edibles for fall shipping (but low to very low stock of Ramps and Spring Beauty). We'll be introducing new items during the year as well.

For our US customers: our prices are in Canadian dollars, which means they're now much cheaper in US$ (the collapse of oil prices has dragged down the Canadian currency). But it also means we've had to raise our shipping rates. You will still find that our total prices are very competitive.

Norton Naturals sells an assortment of plants that can be used as perennial vegetables. Most are or have been extensively used in many cultures, but are now either uncommon in the plant trade or rarely used for food. We focus on the most nutritious plants available: tubers (or their equivalents: corms, bulbs, and rhizomes). For each plant we provide a complete description, planting and ordering instructions, and availability (most of these plants need to be planted at specific times of the year, and often in the fall: plan ahead!). Enjoy the site, and do not hesitate to contact us for additional questions.

Keep in mind that we only ship at two periods of the year, typically mid-October and early April. We'll do our best to ship orders received close to our cut-off date (typically early November for fall, mid-April for spring), but depending on weather, etc., we may have to wait until the following shipping period. Order early if you want to be sure to receive your plants on time. Email us if you have any questions or concerns.
