Their packaging is excellent and their culture descriptions are the best I've seen yet. I would order from them again.

This company is everything what a seed supplier/company should aim for!
They have a nice collection of (rare,native to Canada, special or hard to find and native) seeds/germinated seeds and a couple of plants. They produce their own seeds from own plants so they know what they offer.
There are many companies that want to brag with their huge selection while many of those seeds aren't in stock or too old and not viable anymore.
Here Twining Vine Gardens really shines! They don't offer an enormous selection of seeds, what what they offer is QUALITY. Quality above quantity!
Their website is so perfect in any way:
- It shows the date when the seeds are harvested! (this should be the norm for seed companies, but alas , luckily this company knows what is important) So no more old seeds (this company knows that not all seeds are viable for many years)
-The seed count which is written on the website is less than what you'll be getting!
-Nice description and cultivation information but best of all: their own cultivation experience; so they try their own seeds and share their experience to offer the best result or the method used by them which resulted in great germination results; sometimes it's just funny to read!
-nice colourful photos
-great price for excellent quality
Now another and maybe the most important factor when considering a purchase online: SERVICE.
We have to agree that it sometimes can be a pain in the *ss when it comes down to online services and communication.
-Perfect service; they mailed me to say that the delivery would take a little longer due to weather conditions; without me even asking for it ; the delivery was also very fast from Canada to Europe: 5 days until I received my well packed seeds.
You can follow your order status so you know when it's on its way.
So in short; quality in every aspect! A must visit! recommended and a new personal favourite!

I forgot to mention a very important positive note;
the way they store their seeds; some seeds need special storage and can't be kept dry,in fridge but some need to kept moist,cold,warm,... well these guys know how to store them: very important since I've bought many seeds which died from others because of their way of storing their seeds!
