I'm sharing ALL of the seeds that I'm using in my garden this year, including a variety of veggies, herbs and flowers.
I know there's a lot here, but I'm trying to grow as much as I can in my suburban backyard this year. That way I can test things out and share my results with you!
I just want to mention that I do also have perennial and bulbs in my garden, and I do buy annual transplants each year. These are just the plants that I'll be starting from seed.
Many of these seeds have already been sown indoors and are sitting happily under my grow lights. If you want to see frequent updates about my garden, be sure to follow me on Instagram. I share stories there almost every day!
Most of the seeds that I'm using this year are from Canadian brands. Some of them were purchased online, and some were from Walmart, The Home Depot and other hardware stores.
If you're wondering where you can buy seeds online, I've got a full list of Canadian brands here: Where to Buy Seeds Online (Canada).

My Garden Plan
This is the garden plan that I show in the video. It's basically just a layout of my backyard, which isn't perfectly to scale, that shows all of my available planting areas.
I've given every box and pot a number and then planned out which seeds would go into each area based on various factors. These factors included how much light each plant needs, what can be grown together according to the principles of companion planting, how much space the plants need etc.
I've never tried companion planting before, so I won't know if my plan here actually works until later in the season. I'll be sure to keep you updated!
Which Seeds Did I Buy?
Since I bought so many seeds, I thought you might like to have a list organized by brand that you can refer back to if needed.
If you have any questions about these seeds, leave a comment below or send me an email!

Hi Shareba, I love this topic. I started a seed swap with the neighbors in my area this past year and it was a huge success. We've got a huge selection of open pollinated heirlooms to use this upcoming year.
That's exciting! What a great way to expand the gardens in the neighbourhood!
You just shared your gardening plan like a home plant. Excellent!
