    • Hi Karin, sorry for the delay in replying as we were discussing what best to say. We get most of our seeds from members who collect from their gardens or land. We do find the greatest survival success when growing native Common Milkweed is from transplants of live plants – again from our members. Your best bet is to collect seed from roadside plants when the pods are brown and start to open (which is frustrating as it means waiting until autumn!) For other types of milkweed, we collect our own seed. Acorus Restoration in Southern Ontario used to sell seed packets and may still do so, and sometimes native species seed can be found at local nurseries like Richie’s in Ottawa. William Dam has Asclepias tuberosa (Butterfly Weed). Sorry we can’t be more help, but milkweed produces so much seed we never need to buy any ourselves!
