Ordered late & large variety of seeds. The order came quickly. Only missing one packet that was sold out. Refund was included with the order. I'll gladly order again from them. They have an amazing selection & beautiful catalog.

I am only placing a neutral rating after reading the other posts where most customers rec'd their orders in less than a week.....I am thinking this was for the web site orders (?) because I sent a check on 2-12-10 which was cashed 2-19-10. When I spoke to the gal on the phone today, she stated the seeds (I ordered 17 different variety of seeds) haven't been shipped yet...She is going to check on this..if they do ship today, it will take another 7 days to receive..The only reason I called is because I wanted to start the seeds I ordered with the seeds I already have at the same time.

Anyway, will wait patiently for the seeds.


On March 5th, 2010, artwerks changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Hubby called the company again & asked if they could be sent priority...Rec'd ALL 17 seeds today & they were sent priority..Even rec'd 2 quarters back!..

A note was attached stating they got totally swamped...

Am glad to receive seeds...The seeds were packaged very well & have great instructions on the backs.

YEAH!!!!!...Will definetly order again!

Ordered several varieties of seeds and of the three planted so far I've had over 80% germination rate. Shipping was very quick and I would definitely order from Baker's Creek again.

I've ordered from Baker Creek several times and have never had any problems. They always warn you that they are busy and it may take a week or two for your order to be pulled, but I've only had that experience once. My last order arrived in less than a week.

I've had great germination this year!

I've ordered quite a bit of seed from them this year-for the first time-and have had a good experience so far. One of my orders was short two items, i emailed and received an immediate and helpful response, got the missing seeds the next week. My only concern is that my hardy kiwi seeds did not germinate and was told when i asked about it that they are hard to germinate and often won't. I wish i'd known that before buying, I would have saved my $4. Other than that, I have had a great experience and everyone has been really helpful and prompt.

I ordered my seed packets on a Saturday and they arrived on the following Wednesday! They were packaged well, and included a short note of apology for any delay, which there was none. Now I wait patiently for Spring so I can watch them grow!

I have ordered several times from Baker Creek, and even emailed them asking for recommendations for my needs. All orders were received promptly, and my question was answered within a few days (this was during their busiest seed ordering month). Receiving an extra packet of seeds as a gift is very nice, and my kids are always intrigued. Their catalog is a delight to browse, with stories from other seed savers around the world. They are my main seed source. It's a pleasure to do business with this company.

This was my first time ordering from this company. It was a pretty easy process. The shipping costs are easy to swallow. Awesome selection of seeds. The only thing I would have liked is an email when the seeds were shipped. Otherwise it was a good experience and if the seeds I ordered do well this year I'll order from them again.

This is not my first experience with Baker Creek. Everytime I have ordered it always arrives quicker than expected. Their online ordering is great and I was able to renew my subscription to Heirloom Gardener and order seeds at the same time.

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.

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!!!!
