I've ordered seeds from this company for years now, and have always been pleased with them - germination always was good.

I was happy to find this company recommended at Dave's Garden, and ordered a catalogue.

I was about to place an online order with Select Seeds (for 6 plants and 3 packs of seeds) when I noticed the shipping charge. Select Seeds is one of the companies that hits you with two shipping fees - one for plants and one for seeds. I asked if the seeds could be shipped with the plants and the charge discounted (nope).

We appreciate all feedback on our company and service. We choose not to ship seeds and plants together because the seeds leave from our climate controlled storage separate from our greenhouse and we do not want to expose the seed packages to high humidity and possible wetting, which would lower quality. It is a reality today that shipping is expensive and the cost is either partially included in the product price or levied separately. Our plants are shipped to be in the mail or on the truck no longer than three days- we offer an express service with no additional express fees. We feel this is an excellent value. Thanks to all!

I placed two orders with this company this past spring for seeds and plants. The seeds arrived very fast, but I did not receive my first order of plants until later in the spring. I was charged for the full order at the time the seeds were shipped. In principle, I think this is a dangerous practice, but since I did not have any problems when the plants did arrive, I can't really complain. The second order of plants arrived in very bad condition. The package must have been manhandled since the soil from the plants was all over the inside of the box and some of the plants (the moon vines in particular) had almost no soil. I planted them immediately, and within a few days it was clear they would survive (so I never needed to lodge a complain and thus cannot comment on customer service). The upshot is that I think the packaging is a bit slapdash, but depending on the order things might be fine (I had no trouble with the packaging in the first shipment of plants I ordered). I also quite like the selection of unusual and heirloom plants.

I placed two orders with this company. The first came in two shipments - seeds in the mail and plants (again) USPS. In my area the USPS is the WORST way to get anything delivered. When the seeds shipped I was billed on my credit card the FULL amount of shipping for seeds and plants. I had picked ship dates (as they offered on the site) and after waiting an additional week, beyond receipt of the seeds, and ship date, still not getting my my plants I placed a call to see where the stuff was. I was then informed the plants were not large enough to be shipped. Ok, so why did I have to phone them to get this info? They had both an e-mail address and my phone number. A delay on their part, I expect them to contact me.

I recently ordered seed from Select Seed and was a little underwhelmed. It took over two weeks after I ordered for the seed to get to me. When I wrote to the company and asked them when they had shipped my order, they told me "late last week", instead of a specific date. My experience has been that most seed companies with online ordering ship on the same day they charge your CC (Select Seed must have waited at least a week), and most automatically tell when they shipped your order. Their selection is good, but I was a little annoyed about the processing speed.

Great selection of seeds and reasonably priced for the quanity received. This company carries unusual varieties that I don't find in other catalogs.

I was very pleased with the selection in the catalog. After browsing through it I jotted down some selections I was going to order--seeds, plants and bulbs. When I got to the order form I was unpleasantly surprised to find that there is a packing and handling fee for seeds, an additional packing and handling fee for plants, and yet another additional packing and handling fee for bulbs, books, etc.
