I ordered 2 Dwarf Everbearing Black Mulberry (Morus nigra) plants on sale, for $10 from Baker Creek. Free shipping for 6 months for joining their free club. Plants took about a 10 days to ship from Agri-starts, their supplier in Florida, then 5 days to arrive. Just 2 little seedlings in 1 inch plugs. 8" tall. No damp wrapping around the plug, but the bag they came in seemed to keep them just fine. Planted quickly in 4" cups to let them recover from their trip. Still, they look green and good. So far, happy with plants. BUT they do call them Zone 5-10 on the bag they came in, because Agri-starts calls them 5-10, because Dave's calls them zone 5-10. But it's pretty clear from my research that Dave's is wrong on this zone, and so many sellers have this one wrong. I think it's really zone 7-11, and will need to winter in the garage.

I've ordered from Baker Creek several times now. Their website is easy to use and navigate, and their seed has been excellent. Except for one variety of tomato which was not stabilized (which I knew going in, as they did warn about that on their website) everything has been true to type, so I have not experienced any issues with crossed or mislabeled seed which others have reported.

I've always had near-100% germination rates on everything from them except for one plant that I knew was a plant that is hard to germinate and grow and so expected to have difficulty.

They also are frequently very generous with the number of seeds in the package--sometimes double or triple the amount advertised.

Shipping is reasonable, and packages are easy to track. Processing times are not overly long. Usually I get my order within a week.

They're helpful when you email them as well. They are one of my preferred seed sources.

This is my first year ordering from Baker Creek and made the choice due to the many great selections of old seeds. My order processed quickly and shipping was fast. I only received my order early this week and already have things popping up. Rads and butter crunch already sprouting in the garden. Thanks for the extras in my order as well, we will give them a go.

Oh boy! Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds online store is the grown up version of a candy store for me. They have some really cool, super out there exotic seeds. Unfortunately sometimes they only have them in very limited quantities for obvious reasons, so it's best to order early.

I live in a very cold climate (Alaska) so I appreciated the abundance of information provided with most of the catalog entries. It really helped me hone in on purchases that are appropriate for my climate. My only minor gripe is that not ALL vegetable seeds have the days to maturity range posted, which for someone with my growing constraints is critical information. But in don't really hold it against them because all the seed companies have the same labeling issues.

They shipped the next day after my order via priority mail for only 3.50. Woo hoo! They didn't gouge for shipping like most companies a day they were super prompt. Unfortunately the US Postal service held my package hostage for over a week, so I was practically bursting with anticipation for my seeds. When my seeds arrived I was positively thrilled with what I received.

Fantastic service and fast response to email! Seed germination rates are high too! And to top it all up, their international rates are the most reasonable I've come across. Overall, it's been great buying from them.

I ordered from Baker Creek last year -- and was so pleased with the seeds that I ordered again this year. Just today (3/30) I received the seeds! So excited! This company is just the best! Wonderful selection of heirloom seeds! The germination rate last year was excellent -- nearly 100%. Their shipping is super fast - even with my ordering a little late this year. They include a packet of free seed with each order (their choice) and this year I received "Golden Crispy Melon" -- I'll try to find room to plant it (my garden isn't very large)! The variety selection is amazing - I love reading their catalog! Thank goodness Baker Creek is dedicated to saving some amazing antiques! I am completely and totally satisfied with this wonderful company!!

My only gripe with this company is that I always order waaay too much. The seed packets aren't always brimming with seeds but its enough to get a good crop started for seed saving. I have had great germination percentages from all the seeds I have tried so far and love the massive selection of unusual things they offer. I actually had one package of seeds they sent me a replacement for before I even knew there was a problem with them (didn't come true to type they said.) I have ordered from them more than a few times and definitely plan on ordering again.

The biggest problem I have with Baker Seeds is that I want to plant way more things than I have room for. But seriously, they're one of my favourite suppliers. They have excellent selection, economic and fast shipping, and a very informative website. I've had particularly good luck with their herb seeds.

I ordered in early January and got the seeds within days. I had ordered last year and was pleased with the quality of the seeds, and I expect to be again. I was disappointed that the \"hog brains peas\" were already sold out--was so excited about trying them!

Clearly this company wants to do things right!

Once again, quick delivery time and very reasonable shipping!

Last year the seeds I ordered did very well. I started a huge bunch of tomato plants, got them in the garden, and then had to have open heart surgery. Two of my neighbors took over my garden and were run ragged picking and canning over 100 quarts of tomatoes for me, many from this company! The beans also did well! I love the availability of old-time seeds. Thank you, Baker's Creek!

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

Thank you!

I have ordered from Baker Creek five times over the last several years. I have been very happy with the seeds. They always have great germination rates. Very pleasant customer service! Speedy shipping! I LOVE their rocky top lettuce mix. It always grows well and I can pick it from early spring to late fall. They have some very nice exotic varieties too. The kids had a fun time growing the black Incan corn last year. I love their catalog. The pictures and descriptions are very detailed. It makes ordering so much fun.

Great catalog for anyone wanting to experiment with the rare and unusual. Seeds are a bit pricey compared to other catalogs, especially for the more common varieties, but they provide a good service in conserving rare food crops and offering a variety of difficult-to-find choices to American gardeners. Very fast shipment of orders.

I have placed 4 seed orders through Baker's Creek. Not only has the order placing been easy and convenient, but shipping has been speedy and I've had an excellent turn out with their seeds! I am one that will over plant to be sure I have at least 1 plant in every spot. However, with Baker's Creek seeds, I've had to do a lot of thinning due to most seeds germinating. Lol. Thank you Baker's Creek for an all-around great experience with your company and products!

Bakers Creek is the only seed company we use. I cannot say enough good about them. When we first started ordering seeds from them years ago they sent out handwritten thank you notes. Now that the company is larger the note is printed on the bottom of the order slip but it's still means just as much. They always ship on time and they include a packet or two of free seeds depending on the size of your order. Out in the garden their seeds grow and produce better than anything else we have tried.

Their absolutely stunning seed catalog is also well worth signing up for. They usually throw in a free seed packet with an order as well.

This is my first year starting everything (mostly everything) from seed and I choose this company based on reviews. I had near 100% germination on all seeds from my two separate purchases made this year. My 3 types of onions molded over (my fault) and my Tronchuda Kale did not sprout. (Did I mention this was my first year starting from seeds?). I am very pleased with my purchase. I received my order in a reasonable amount of time and received a packet of freebie seeds with each order. That is always exciting. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for exciting and rare vegetables to grow. Being that I'm new to gardening and very new to starting seeds I would have appreciated more information on each packet/website description stating the normal seed packet information like when to sow how long they take to mature etc. but google has been helpful in that matter.

Today I received my second order and am again pleased. They have a wonderful selection of seeds and I experienced great germination rates with my first order. I'm also very satisfied with the customer service. With my first order, I emailed them about when to plant something as there was conflicting information online (not on their site, on other sites I went to). The rep was so helpful. Also, shipping was really fast for me...love that I can track my orders.

My experience with Baker Creek has only been great! Most of their seeds do good for me. (we live in the Mountains and only have about 3 months growing time). I make sure if possible to order seeds that mature in 80 days. They have good descriptions of the plants and helpful hints. Because of them, I tried Purslane and love it! I also think they have the most beautiful seed packets I've ever seen. And I really appreciate the free packet of seed with my order; I think it is very generous and kind (and makes me smile). I feel real good about telling other gardeners in my area about their seeds. I will continue to do business with them until I can't have a garden anymore...hope I'm a 106 by then.

This was the first company I have ever ordered seeds from. I found their catalog in a local bookstore & loved that they were Non GMO, Heirloom types. I also really liked that they had photos and the histories of almost all their plants/seeds. I ended up taking a shot & placed an order.

It was very easy to navigate their website. They were sold out of a few things that I wanted, but no big deal, I just ordered something else. I paid and instantly got an email confirmation of my order. A few days later, I got an email confirmation of my order shipping out. And a few more days later I had the seeds at my door!

I love the design of the seed packets! I also really love that they give you a brief history and growing directions. Now, I did order a few things and they came in sort of a generic package and didn't have a history or directions, so I had to look those up myself, but no big deal really.

I sowed some seeds on a Saturday & they had all started to germinate 3 days later! I was so excited, I ended up placing a second order of seeds from them!

I've had two positive experiences from them & I will be buying more from them. Thank you!

Baker Creek always meets my expectations! I have purchased about $250 in seeds each year for the last 4 years. Germination is better than any other company I have ordered from. When you start seeds in the greenhouse it is important to know you can trust the seeds will actually sprout, especially for those varieties that take so long to emerge. Seeds I ordered from other companies this year averaged 25% germination rate and were twice as expensive! Baker Creek 95%. Look forward to their catalog, love the website and very happy with their reasonably priced products. You can't go wrong.
