I was thinking of growing some Diviners Sage but wouldnt happen to know where to buy a plant near me (simcoe county Ont.) I know the seeds are not very fertile so I'm looking for a plant or clones. Anyone got any of those two?

I doubt that this plant is easy to come by from a legal source. I believe it has now been banned in Canada.

Actually...It is still legal in most countries. googled it and one of the first sites popping up was Richters. Some US states have banned it. But you can purchase it.

And hopefully it is being purchased for it's uniqueness, a plant of interest in your garden and not it's recreational use.

However......and here comes some preaching! :wink:

Another site was a stoner's forum. I'm sorry, that was unfair. It was a forum for recreational users of an illegal substance. Surprisingly, MOST of the posters did NOT encourage the use of Diviner's Salvia. It is a substance that can make things go wrong way too fast. It is NOT comparable to the above mentioned banned substance, nor is it to any halucinatory substance.

That being said...judgment aside....I would suggest checking with your local nurseries. I don't know where in Simcoe county you are, but their are many many to choose from. It is however...a difficult plant to grow apparently....comments from Dave's garden varied...but most said it can be finnicky.

I've heard good things about Botanix.....they are south end, just west Costco.

If you're willing to travel, you could try Elmvale....Ritchie's is on HWY 92 towards Wasaga Beach.
