April 29, 2018: Winter has lingered much longer than we hoped,  resulting in significant shipping delays, but we have now been shipping for several days. If you have placed an order in the past few months, you will receive it very soon.  We can only ship twice a year:  fall (late October) and spring (mid-April), so if you miss this window, you can still order for Fall shipping.  Some of our items are already sold out, but many will be ready for spring planting.  We'll update stocks accordingly in upcoming weeks.  Let us know if you have any questions.

For our US customers: our prices are in Canadian dollars, which means they're significantly lower in $US. But it also means we've had to raise our shipping rates slightly. 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 (usually 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.
