Get ready to GROW!

have two seeds per package, but your chances of growing impressive pumpkins will be very high…
The Compost Council of Canada funds research with the intention that industry funds be placed for maximum effect to the research project. As such, The Compost Council of Canada's policy is to fund research with zero overhead.
