I had poor germination with the giant red cactus zinnia - only two out of the 150 mg packet sprouted. Of the whirlygig zinnia there were 9 that sprouted from the 200 mg packet, and the peppermint stick was slightly fewer than that of the 200 mg packet. Luminosa pink and canary bird zinnias were mixed into a spot in my garden, about half of each packet, and a total of 8 have sprouted. I will try sowing the rest of those today, but so far I am not happy with the results. I have always had great success with zinnia seeds, but not the ones from Seedman so far.

I changed my rating from negative to neutral because recently the Seedman company fully refunded my order, almost immediately, cheerfully and no questions asked.

Shipping was fast, and I was very excited to get some Tennessee Cheese pepper seeds from this company. However, after many, many, many, different tries in different ways, the seeds have had 0% germination, while all of my other pepper seeds from various different sources have had about a 90% success rate. Very disappointing.

I ordered from them twice last year. The first time I ordered germination was low and some things did not sprout at all. Datura and Passion Flower never sprouted. I did however E-mail them and was asked to wait a bit longer, I did and still nothing so they replaced them and informed me that nobody else complained about the batch. I felt a bit singled out or as if I was being accused of deceit. The replacement Datura and Passiflora never sprouted either. The second time I ordered some Impoea and Nervosa and neither was what they claimed it to be. I also ordered some "Greek Oregano" and "Spicy Basil" which turned out to be wild Marjoram and Mint Basil but that's technically their supplier's fault. I do hope they correct the problem and I have decided to give them another chance this year but if they fail I will request a full refund and never use them again. Yes, I will also inform EVERYONE I come across in my groups and forums, in these times people cannot afford to be screwed over.

Won't ship to Australia, not even small packets of seed that are permitted entry by ICON. Their reasons are pretty vague. They say they haven't got the required paperwork for Customs. What paperwork??? They are shipping small packets of seed, not plants, nor shipping container loads of grain.

I have puchased from this company on several different occasions. My concern with them is the wrong information on their website and on seed packs. I noticed that the varities are not labelled acurately. Shipping was fast and prices reasonable, but I probably won't purchase here again.

At first I was impressed with the promptness and neatness of the packaging. I started my seeds in January as soon as I got them. I have still not seen any germination from my bananas, bird of paradise, kiwi, pygmy date palm, and tree tomato (cyphomandra).

Money was refunded and taken care of in timely and professional manner.

we ordered calif. poppy seeds and about 10 different garden vegetable seeds. they arrived very fast with good labeling and plant markers included. BUT, after planting our seeds in early september, in sc, we had no germination for lettuce (usually very easy), broccoli, cauliflower,kale, etc. our mustard had very good germination. we tried again with the lettuce, broccoli and cauliflower. still no success. we are waiting for spring for the verdict on the calif. poppies (please germinate and flower!!). i don't think we'd deal with them again

I ordered several seeds from them in early 2001. The order was shipped very promptly and nicely packed. However my germination rates have been nonexistent for pomegranates and very poor for strawberry spinach, and very poor for red sunflowers. Red okra had very good germination. Yellow watermelon had 100% germination, but some of the seeds were infected with worms.

I ordered from them in 1998 or so when I first discovered seed shopping on the web and before I knew anything about the various companies out there. I was impressed with the big variety of seeds offered. However, in retrospect, prices were high. Quantities were small and germination rates were low to nonexistent, but some of that may have been due to my relative inexperience at the time. There are too many good companies out there for me to order from them again.

I ordered various seeds from seedman.com & none have germinated in 2 months since I ordered them. I know it is not how I care for them because I have been given seeds from friend's plants & these have done well & I have also grown plants from fruits I have purchased, etc. Has anyone else had this type of problem, that all of the seeds purchased failed to grow? I bought palm tree seeds, cactuses, flowers & houseplants.
