Though I followed the instructions for each individual type of seed, most didn't germinate. I bought flowers, peppers, tomatoes.... just didn't have much success w any. I also felt that I got very little for the price. I buy seeds from Southern exposure as well, for instance, and for less money I get better germination rates and more seeds.

If you expect what you purchase to be shipped, you will be disappointed. They do not count their bulk seeds and my order was about 20% as listed. They argue with you when you give them a chance to make it right and when they refuse and you file a claim with PayPal to refund what's missing, they manipulate the claim by forcing a full return. Complete waste of time and money. Knowing how argumentative they are, and how they clearly are more interested in making their unethical business your problem, please remember when they likely rebut; you have been warned.

I have ordered on at least three occasions from this company, primarily palm seeds. None of the palm seeds (not one) have ever germinated, I suspect because they are not fresh or have improperly been stored; to be clear, out of perhaps 15 species I have ordered from them (probably 100+ seeds overall) and notwithstanding the "85% germination labels" they have on the seeds packets, only 1 species has ever successfully germinated, that is, one specific passiflora species. I emphasize I have successfully been growing palms and other plants from seed for decades, both fresh collected and ordered over the internet. What I have received from this company has been consistently the worst germination results I have had from any source by a huge stretch, i.e., I typically get 60% or better germination from everyone/everywhere else. Whatever happened to Ortanique? I had great results from them but they are no longer around.

I came across this company online while searching for new sources of seed and thought that some of their products looked interesting. However, their information says that they sell throughout the States and also to Germany, the UK (EU countries), Norway (a non-EU country) and a few other countries. I live in Spain and thought it was a bit strange that they send seeds to the UK and Germany but not to other European Union countries, including Spain which have exactly the same international postage charges and legislation regarding shipping seeds. I contacted the company and they confirmed that no, they donīt mail seeds to Spain. I find this completely bizarre. What have the UK and Germany got that we donīt have? They are denying themselves a much larger market for absolutely no reason that I can think of.

I ordered quite a variety of seeds from Seedman this year. I had extremely poor results all across the board from their seeds.

I had ordered over 25 different varieties of seeds from this company... two months after starting the plants, only the borage has germinated. At the same time I started these seeds indoors under grow lights and plenty of warmth, I started seeds from several other companies. All the seeds that I planted from the other companies have sprouted (90% at the least). I pulled aside the cups with the duds and did my research to make sure that they had proper growing conditions. Most of my plants were pretty basic (I.E. the easy to grow varieties such as borage, forget-me-not, etc). Everything was perfect so I pulled out the packets that I had saved. Wouldn't you know, all the seeds that refused to sprout were from the same company! I am absolutely furious. Had I attempted to grow plants for the first time and only ordered from this company, I would have no plants to landscape my yard with this spring and probably would never try starting my own seeds again. Luckily, I know now that it was the company and not me so I'll continue to grow little plants for years to come and sometime in the future, I'll finally have the garden of my dreams that I planted completely from seed!

I will not be ordering from this seller again.

I have ordered from them twice now and am very dissapointed with the low germination rates (some 0%). I ordered Japanese Maple seed (0% germination), a variety of bananna seed (20% germination), sago palm seed (30% germination) and bird of paradise (10% germination). I sent an Email (4 months after planting) asking that the Japanese Maple seeds be replaced as none germinated (they were supposed to be pre-stratified and ready for planting). I received a one sentence reply stating that they can take 2 years to germinate. That was all that was said... Very dissapointed overall...

I just received my seeds and (after being VERY nervous after reading negative feedback on numerous different seed companies) was surprised at how healthy and promising the seeds looked! And a MAJOR MAJOR plus is that the palm seeds DID NOT FLOAT! Woohoo....that right there is half the battle! I expect germination to be great and will be doing business with them again! (since I am SUPER picky, that's really saying something!) :0)
On May 27th, 2006, dixie_angel changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:
Well, like the previous comment I have had 0 % germination....most noticeably my morning glory seeds.....I had soaked and planted morning glory seeds from 4 different sites at the same time (literally within a 20 minute time span) and everything came up but the seeds I got from him. I checked the other seeds and nothing has germinated. Im leaving this as a negative until I hear from them about a refund. I guess that I learned my lesson.....looks can be deceiving....:0((

I HAVE BEEN STARTING TROPICAL SEEDS FOR MANY YEARS AND DO NOT EXPECT MORE THAN 60 TO 70 %GERMINATION OF THE NUMBER OF SPECIES I BUY FROM DEALERS. I PURCHASED A DEAL ON BANANA SEEDS, 6 VARIETIES FOR $14.95; 10 SEEDS OF EACH. THE ORDER WAS SHORT ON THE SEED COUNT OF TWO VARIETIES. ALL THE SEEDS OF ONE VARIETY GERMINATED, 0 GERMATED ON THE OTHER 5. I WILL NEVER ORDER FROM THIS DEALER AGAIN!
