This review is not actually about anything purchased through the company. Rather it's about the great education provided on the website, in particular her information on sowing seed in vermiculite. I have been using her method recently with great results whereas in the past I didn't have the same luck with my germination rates.
I am grateful to Jonna and look forward to ordering from her soon.Company representative comment on February 23, 2015: On Feb 23, 2015 8:21 PM, Jonna Sudenius responded with:
bedankt voor uw snelle en uitgebreide reactie op mijn vragen voor het zaaien in vermiculiet. Ik ga het zeker proberen, ben vooral benieuwd hoe het met de groente gaat. En bedankt voor de tip met de 'slagersbakjes'.

Jonna was a joy to trade with. My package arrived promptly and without issue. Inside were numerous small envelopes with many seeds in each, clearly labeled with genus, species, and sowing instructions. I would strongly recommend Jonna for trade and will also direct others to the website for buying seeds. Wonderfully diverse selection!!
Jonna is the most polite, and considerate person I've dealt with in a long time. I'd trade with them anytime! I was a little slow getting my seeds out, but they were understanding of my situation and sent me beautifully packaged seeds with instructions and a nice handwritten note. That in itself makes
trading worth it. Thank you Jonna! I feel like I made a great friend and would gladly trade with you anytime. :)

VERY VERY wide selection including unusual varieties with exact variety info.
VERY low prices (small packets, detailed instructions).
VERY low shipping costs ($2.00 for up to 10 packets!)
Quick delivery (despite coming from Belgium).
Wonderful, knowledgable lady, quick to answer at length via email.
A+++ my first choice vendor unless I want 100s of seeds in one variety.

Wide selection of interesting varieties. Very helpful email communication. Great prices - US$1.50 per packet. From Belgium to BC, Canada the mailing took a little over a week. Seed is well packed with detailed germination instructions. Looking forward to seeing what plants result!On June 26th, 2011, hillfarm added the following:
Excellent germination & vigorous seedlings (& now plants) on most varieties. I will definitely order again. Thank you, Jonna.
Have traded and bought from Jonna before this spring but got another great order so thought I would note it. Jonna has great seeds, incredible selection, fantastic germination rates. She always sends a friendly note along making the purchase feel personal and warm. Thanks, Jonna!!
Wonderful transaction. Thank you for the seeds! They arrived very fast will buy from again! Thank you! A+++

My seeds didn't arrive and Jonna was kind enough to re-send them. Nice Emails and the seeds finally arrived and are beautiful. I will be ordering more soon! Thank you Jonna!

Ordered again. Everything arrived within a week! Nice packaging. Thanks again!
Excellent communication, fast service and very reasonable shipping. I paid less to have seeds shipped from Belgium to Ohio, than some of my domestic orders. They seeds were well-packed and arrived in perfect condition. She has a lovely selection of seeds, I'll definitely order again.

I ordered from Jonna because she had many types of seeds I could not find elsewhere. Her website is easy to get around in and her plants are beautiful! From Belgium to the US, she said it would take 7-10 days for me to receive my purchase. I ordered them Sunday night and received them that next Friday. Only five days! When I opened the bubble package, I found a pretty postcard with a note on the back. The seeds were beautifully packaged and I'm so eager to plant them. The packs came with detailed instructions telling me when to plant them indoors or outdoors. She also included the expiration date right on the package so I would know when to use them up by. I've not seen that on many of my seed packs and I was pleased that she took the extra measure. Her service was exceptionally friendly and she replied quickly to every email. If I ran a company, I would want it to be like this one. Overall, I am very, very impressed. Thanks sooooo much Jonna!

Jonna replaced a pack of seeds that didn't germinate for me (but I think I did not plant them correctly)
I've ordered twice from Jonna, and definitely will be ordering again. Nice selection, reasonable prices ($1.50/pack) and fast, inexpensive shipping ($1.50 for up to 10 packs). Can't beat that!

I'm very sorry to say, but shipping will be more expensive from January 1, 2011. I'm still not earning any money on shipping, but raised prices force me to ask more.
