This is the first year that I have dealt with Baker Creek. I am very impressed with the website and how quickly I received my order. Their selection is huge. I do not know yet about the reliability of the seeds.
I do have one issue regarding their catalog. It is a beauty. Huge, gorgeous pictures, lots of information. The problem (in my opinion) is that it is slick, colorful and very big. The shiny, colorful pages seem counter to what you are trying to otherwise do. You are selling heirloom seeds, preserving the past, and trying to be as anti-GMO as possible, yet your catalog is a waste of resources and cannot even be returned to a compost heap.
I hate to be overly critical because I admire what you are doing to preserve and make these seeds available, but the high gloss catalog just doesn't seem to fit the rest of what I perceive to be your philosophy.

Gorgeous catalog. Very fast shipping, just a few days. One of my orders took maybe 5 days instead of the usual 3 and included a note apologizing for the delay! I've also gotten free seed packets included with every order, which is a nice touch. Very good germination on everything I've tried so far, but I have just started with them so haven't grown anything to full size yet. I also love that their website includes user ratings and reviews for each seed.

Quick delivery -- I received my seeds 3 days after ordering. Fabulous customer service, too -- there were no growing instructions on one of the seed packets I received, so I emailed for their recommendations. In literally 6 minutes I had received a thorough response. Amazing! And of course, the catalog...beautiful and fascinating to page through.

This has been a good year for me, seeds ordered from 10 companies and everything now received.

I love the seed selection that Baker Creek offers. I placed my order online and received it in less than a week - I found that quite impressive. They also included a free seed packet, alas the packet was empty. Things like that happen; I contacted them and am confidant they will be sending another one as quickly as I received my order. I can't wait for planting season to see how well these seeds grow.

My overall experience with Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds has been positive, and I look forward to ordering from them for years to come!

I received my order 4 days after placing it. Prices, including shipping were very reasonable. I haven't started my seeds yet, so I can't vouch for their quality at this point. My receipt even contained a hand written "Thank You" from Patty. I love the beautiful catalog, but would love a recycled paper catalog even more. Concern about our ecosystem should go beyond agriculture.

I love this company. It is one of my three must buy from seed company every year. The germination rates and plant development from their seeds are the best I have ever experienced. Even tomato varieties I swore would not grow well in my climate were productive with their seed. This year my order came in a little over a week despite supposed delays due to the season.

This is the second year we have ordered from Baker Creek, and we were not disappointed. We ordered online on a Saturday afternoon and I am holding my seeds in my hand today, the following Thursday and Monday was a holiday! Super fast shipping.

My husband and I can't wait to start our new seeds for this year and see what our kids think of everything!

Great Job!!!!

First time ordering from Baker Creek. Firstly, they have great customer service. I placed an order and forgot to print my confirmation number. I called their MO office and was pleasantly surprised to speak with real people who were fast and friendly. My order arrived after 8 days with some cool free seeds and a handwritten note apologizing for the shipping delay (I did not think there was a delay but I appreciated the note). Currently I have had great success with the seeds I have started. I am experiencing close to 100% germination on all greens, tomato, eggplant, onions, root veggies. So far my pepper seeds have not sprung but it has only been 6 days since I wet them so no worries for now. As far as the quality of the harvest only time will tell, but compared to other heirloom mail orders I have used these are off to a tremendous start. All of this coupled with 1 year money back guarantees on all seeds and a great color catalogue I can say I will be back next year. I actually am so excited that I convinced my local organic shop to carry a selection of Baker Creek seeds this year at the store! Highly recommended, great variety and selection that can not be found locally for most growers.

Amazing seed company! First, our orders have been shipped fast, 100% accurate and complete. ALL of the seeds I have purchased from Baker Creek have been extraordinary! We purchased seeds from 8 companies and kept notes on the productivity of each type from each company, each year. Baker Creek seeds won hands down. The germination rate was above average. Plant vitality was extaordinary! Couldn't kill our Baker Creek plants. (The same can't be said for some of the other big seed company's seeds we have planted, which passed on rather quickly in the season!) Productivity was beyond anything I have seen in 30 years of gardening. Most of the varieties from Baker Creek also had fantastic flavor. Each year we have discovered yet another treasure in a new variety. Our experience the last few years with their seeds has convinced us to plant only high quality heirloom variety. As a final thought, I HIGHLY reccomend their magazine, "Heirloom Gardener!" Each issue is not only a good read for any level of gardener, it is a wonderful resource and presents topics that even experienced gardeners will find useful. It is a marelous publication and my personal favorite magazine!

I've been buying Baker Creek seeds for years and have been very happy with germination rates and quality of product. If you like the Cherokee Purple tomato, try the Paul Robeson!

This is the first time I have delt with this company and I am very impressed. This is the place to deal with if you are looking for a large selection of heirloom seeds especially tomatoes. I ordeded 16 varieties or tomatoes and peppers. I have not germinated any yet but the packages are clearly dated for this year. The prices were very reasonable and shipping was quick to Canada. I am very Impressed!

There is a speciality gardening store in my town that has just started selling their seeds and they have nothing but praise for this company. They have met the owner personally and is very impressed with his business.

This was my first year ordering from Baker Creek and I have been very happy so far. I placed a fairly large order and it was still received within only a few days. Everything was also exactly what I have ordered with no mistakes. It is still too early to plant here yet, so time will tell what the quality of the seeds are. My only complaint with this company is that they need to provide much more detailed information on the seed packets. Mostly what is provided is the same descriptions found in the catalog with spotty information about planting and dates to maturity. As a beginning gardener, I was forced to do much of my own research to determine how to grow the seeds from them.

Gotta love homegrown, independent companies. Baker Creek seeds are a first-rate act. Discovered them through a co-worker. I was impressed with the FAST turnaround. Website and catalogue have excellent information.

My wife and I look forward to planting the seeds this spring. Kids are freaked out by some of the items, but totally dig the outlandish colours and variety!!!

As a first-time customer I am very pleased with the fast and personable service! I placed two orders, a vegetable order and an additional order for herb seed. Both orders arrived four days after they were placed.

Baker Creek's catalog is top-notch. I love the incredible amount of variety they offer, there is something for every region.

While I do order from other seed companies as well, Baker Creek ranks very high on my list. I am very excited to recieve my first issue of their magazine very soon!

Excellent seed company to deal with. I have visited their farm in Aug. when they have an open house featuring most of their garden produce but especially the tomatoes. It was eye opening to see tomatoes grown locally that weighted almost 3#. I have yet to get one of those. 2# yes.
