Always a pleasure to deal with. Seeds always have high germination rates and always perform very well! I love that this company is consistent and offers quality product. My only wish is that they offered even more varieties :-) Looking forward to trying more of your seeds this coming spring.

Thank you!

I ordered seeds from Victory last year and also this year. I have just received my seeds for this year. I do container gardening in earthboxes. I absolutely am wild about the Dwarf Tomato Project seeds, perfect for my use. I had my seeds in a matter of days after ordering.

I met Mike at the 2015 Mother Earth News fair in Oregon. I was impressed by how down-to-earth the company felt. You can tell that everyone who works there has a special blood sweat and tears bond with the company and the gardening way of life. I made my first order through them last fall. I was pleased with the results. I some of my seed for some experiments in the greenhouse, and everything came up happy and strong.

I had never bought from this company before, but looking at the ratings here, I was pretty confident they were worth doing business with. Are they surely are! This company has a lot of the new Dwarf tomato seeds I have been looking for. There are 13 varieties that I placed in my order online, but before I hit the place the order button, I have a question about this type of tomato, so I emailed the company, and got a answer back in my email with a in depth detail answer, in less than 3 hours. Very impressive, especially during this busy time of year. I placed my order and it was in my mailbox 7 days later. Great service, great prices and fast shipping.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a detailed description of your purchasing experience with us. I think that reviews like yours really help gardeners make informed decisions and form the basis of our primary method of "advertising" . . . word-of-mouth.

As a bit of a disclaimer, as you pointed out it is our busy season and as a small organization, I wear a lot of hats here. So although I try to reply to emails, CRM messages and various social media questions quickly, I can at times be a bit slower responding than you experienced.

Regarding the seed order turn-around time . . . Thankfully folks do not have to wait for me on those :) We have a great crew that works hard at getting orders mailed out in 1 to 3 business days.

Good company, plants grew well. Seeds arrived on time. The reason I give them a Neutral was the germination rate left a lot to be desired. 7 out of 25 seeds is not good in my book. Had to replant some seeds to keep the garden full.

I thought about sending my complaint to the company but for the small cost of the seeds I bought didn\'t make it worth while.


On December 16th, 2015, YB changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Since I first posted this years back, Victory Seeds have been very good at sending what I need and the seed quality is very good.
I just purchased more and will continue to use them for my future Heirloom seed needs.

One of my favorite online seed sources.
Victory Seed carries a lot of hard to find open pollinated varieties, including many rare seeds.

The shipping is always fast too.
As someone who rarely uses all of the seed in a single packet at one time, I really appreciate the ziploc bag inside the paper seed packet.
Another bonus is the full description of the product on the paper seed packet. So many companies do not provide that information on the seed packet. Most have generic information that applies to all varieties of the particular type of seed.
Victory lists the days to maturity along with other information right on the packet. This saves having to locate the listing for specific seeds when making decisions about what to grow.
I've had very good germination with all of the seeds I've purchased and appreciate the little things that make this company special.

I have never ordered from this company, but was thrilled with how quickly they sent the seeds. Many people think well of this company, so I am looking forward to growing the seeds.

Got a notice that one of the items I wanted was now available, so I ordered and got it quickly. I really appreciate that!

If I could make one suggestion--if someone orders something after being on the wait list, it would be nice if the price of shipping (which is great) could be reduced a bit. Getting one packet is doubled in price by the shipping cost.

Still, a great company!

Hello Lilyhazen,

Thank you for taking the time to write the nice comment. Since we know it is \"that time of year\" and that the seeds won\'t be staying in their packets very long once they are in your hands, we do work hard to get folks\' orders out as quickly as we can. Thank you for noticing that.

Regarding out of stock items . . . if you look on the variety\'s product page, when it is out of stock there is a button that is available that allows you to add yourself to the \"Waiting List\" for that item. When I get it back into stock, you are sent an automated email letting you know.

The reason that I mention that is often, we are not really out of stock, it is just that the system thinks we are an one of us has to review inventory and update the cart. We do this daily.

As a new customer from Zone 13, I was pleased by the swiftness and response to my January order. The seeds came well-packaged, and the first planting showed high germination.
On the packaging: I was impressed with detailed lable on the standard sized packets. Then I noticed two things which put Victory Seeds ahead of their competition: first, the seeds are in a clear resealable plastic bag which keeps mosture out and provides a clear view of the seed condition; second, the outer standard size packet is resealable which allows the gardener to keep the seeds organized and out of direct light. I am convinced that this packaging contributes to the high germination rates that I found on first planting.
On the shipping: I also appreciate that the seeds came via USPS which handled the package tracking and first class postage with ease. I believe more companies should use our national postal service, and that is a plus in Victory's favor. Besides, so many companies cannot ship to Hawaii and Alaska because they rely on non-USPS shipping.
On timelyness: I received my order within 4 days, which allowed me to begin planting that weekend. My peas and beets are doing well.
Well done, Victory Seeds.
I look forward to my next package.

I have purchased my vegetable garden seed from Victory Seed Company for two years now and have been very pleased with the seed and with this company. They have an excellent selection of rare and heirloom seeds. The website is helpful and easy to navigate. My seeds have performed well with good germination rates and high production. I received both of my orders very quickly. Everything was very well packaged and I have never had anything missing from an order or a seed packet that was short on seeds. Their customer service has been the best I've ever experienced with an online retailer. They are incredibly helpful and courteous and have gone out of their way to make sure I'm a happy customer. I love that they were an early signer of the Safe Seed Pledge and that they are not in the tiniest way affiliated with Monsanto or any other GMO seed company. As for the person complaining about the optional package insurance (and taking pages and pages to do so) - good grief he needs a new hobby! I've bought and sold stuff on websites like eBay and Etsy for years and package insurance is ALWAYS an option and the seller is NEVER responsible for a package once it leaves their hands. That is common practice!! Please don't let that disgruntled and unreasonable person discourage you from doing business with Victory Seed Company.

This does affect our organization's culture to be very customer driven. And I am very happy that we were able to help you and that your garden was a success.

In regards to gardening hydroponically . . . It is funny that you ask. I have been receiving quite a few inquiries from folks about this subject. It is a food production method that is of interest to me but unfortunately, one that I do not have a lot of hands-on experience with. That said, I will be working to compile information from customer feedback and build a section on the web site in the future.

For tomatoes, I do have a section created for varieties that are suitable for container gardening so some of those may do well in a hydroponic grow. You can find it on the site here - [HYPERLINK@www.victoryseeds.com] 'Tiny Tim' is a variety that comes to mind.

When you do start on your hydroponic adventure, drop me an email and we can all compare notes.

Thank you again for your review, your support, and your word-of-mouth recommendations to your gardening friends and family.

Best Regards,

~Mike"

Great! I'm a Victory Seed Company repeat customer, and very pleased with my purchases. There's so much to like about this company: the selection, the philosophy, the attractive prices, the unique packaging. I've never liked tomatoes until I tried Livingston's Magnus tomato sold by Victory Seed Company — a revelatory experience! If you've never liked tomatoes, try this one. Mahalo Victory!

It is 2 years in a row that I order from Victory Seeds and am always pleased at their excellent and fast service and also at the variety of seeds they carry. I had been looking everywhere in British Columbia for Birdfoot Trefoil - a pretty yellow flower that can be used as feed - and could not find it anywhere. What a thrill to see it at Victory Seeds!

Also the 2 types of cabbages - all seasons and Brunswick - I grew last year from Victory seeds turned out really well. I now buy all the seeds I don't save myself from them. It's great to know they are open pollinated and grows organically even though they don't say "certified organic" because so many seeds now contain systemic pesticides.

Purchased several tomatos seeds early last year. I failed to plant them and forgot about them. 17 days ago I found them unopened in a sealed plastic bag in a spare bedroom. Since I failed to follow directions to properly store them I didn't expect any thing to grow. I planted 3 different types of seeds. I was surprised that 2 of the 3 all are about 3 inches seedlings. The other type has a a few still trying. The seeds arrived quickly. I will order from them again.

I have ordered from these folks for a couple of years. They send out the order quickly and the seeds are good quality. Their catalog has really expanded over the years and you can find a lot of interesting varieties. They have a new rewards system where you earn points for purchasing and commenting. I look forward to earning some store credit. There is some vintage gardening information and seed saving resources available as well. I feel good about supporting this company.

I've been doing business with Victory Seeds for the last few years and always receive my order fast, I've never experienced a problem with an order mix up or seeds not germinating. I've put a lot of trust in this company because they've been around so long and my own personal experience confirms why.

Hi Sunsi,

I loved your review. It is awesome on a couple of levels.

Firstly, we do operate the Victory Seed Company using old-fashioned values where our word, reputation, and relationships are everything. We know that people have nearly unlimited choices in where to buy seeeds. But seeds are all about faith and trust -- faith that they will actually grow, and trust that they are what the merchant says they are -- and we take both seriously.

And for me, although it seems like just yesterday that we took over the management of our family's farm, as you pointed out, it has been a fair number of years ago. This has only been possible by the support and partnership of folks like you. Thank you again for your kind words and your continued support.

~Mike"

I placed my order online on a Friday night, and I received my seeds on the following Wednesday afternoon - 3 business days to PA! I'm impressed with the prompt filling and mailing of my order as I usually wait longer for orders from other seed companies on the East coast. I really enjoy Oxheart varieties, so I am looking forward to growing (and eating!) your giant pink and yellow Livingston Oxhearts this coming summer.

Found Victory Seeds on line as I was looking for some unusual things to grow, unusual for the UK that is.

Very clear website with great information and very easy ordering process, especially as I was ordering from outside of the USA

Seeds arrived in a very timely fashion yesterday, 25th Jan.
Lover the simple and concise instruction on the seed packets.

I will be growing these alongside other open pollinated seeds bought from my regular supplier here in the UK, The Real Seed Company, based in Wales, and some other seed I bought from New Hope Seeds in Tennessee.

I grow on my Allotment (separate land from my House garden) in the town I live in which is about 26 miles north of London...but feels like a different world!!

I will feed back on the success or otherwise....but I am confident.
Really looking forward to saving the seeds from this crop and rest assured, as Chairman of our Allotment Association, that I will spread the gospel according to Victory Seeds here in the UK.

Best wishes

Les

Indeed on the challenge.
I am going to grow the Peppers half in a Polytunnel on site and half out once they have got going.

On the Southern Pea. Indeed. But I am going to get them going in the tunnel and plant out later than normal when warmth will be (or not, this is the UK after all) at its peak.

Anyway, good stuff... I will keep you posted.

Hi Les,

Thank you so much for your order and for spreading the word about us in your part of the world. It is greatly appreciated.

I am very impressed regarding your commitment to gardening. I live for getting my hands in the soil but driving 26 miles to the garden? Wow!

I am looking forward to your garden report. Some of the varieties that you are trying may be challenging for your area. Your climate is fairly comparable to mine here in Oregon (right?) so 'Peter' peppers and the Southern peas may take some babying.

Thank you again,

~Mike
