Ordered a few packets of seeds from them in the beginning of July, and just got them now. It's packaged professionally, with concise germination instructions included. They've got a great selection of seeds, some of which I've been hard pressed to find. (Even NALS doesn't have them in their seed exchange!) And there are more seeds than stated on the package, which is a great bonus.

I've ordered from this company twice now. The order was completed within their stated time frame (the second order was completed almost immediately) and so far germination has been pretty good with the seeds I started indoors. I'll be planting most of them directly outside in a few more weeks. Fingers crossed!

I placed an order with Hardyplants.com on October 22, 2013 after finding their website while searching for a species I was having trouble finding elsewhere. I placed a small order of five species (just under 20$ worth). The prices were reasonable. I received a email on Oct 24 confirming the order and stating it had been shipped. The package arrived on November 1 in good condition and all seeds ordered present and in very good quantities. I can't speak to germination rates just yet as I will be growing them next spring but I have enough seed that even if the germination was moderate I should have plenty of plants.

I was hesitant to order from this company due to the less than stellar reviews. However after a lot of searching they were the only place I could find a couple variety of seeds I wanted. So I went ahead and ordered them. The order was promptly aknowledged and then I waited. After 3+ weeks I emailed and inquired as to the order status. A few days latter I recieved an email stating the seeds were shipped and an extra packet included due to the slow turn around. So I have the seeds and total time was a month, about what I had been prepared for. So a positive rating all told.( to be updated after I have germination results if warranted).

I ordered five or six packets of annual and perennial flower seeds in Feb. 2011 for winter sowing. They came promptly and I was pleased with the results. I'll be ordering again this winter.

I ordered my seeds having read all the negative reviews; so I really thought and believed I would have lost my money.

My order was sent in a very timely manner. The seeds were well packaged and labeled with instructions for each different package. The variety is great, the amount in each package is very adequate and I am well pleased. The prices and the web site are good also although he could use a few more pictures.

After reading the many negative reviews of this company (and the many positive ones too) I wasn't sure if I should order anything from it. However, it was the only place I could find online selling the seeds of a specific plant I wanted, and the monetary risk was small (only $5.70 including shipping), so I decided to risk it.

Last week I fully expected to leave negative feedback, but upon receiving my seed order today I changed my mind. Like the other reviewers, it took longer than I expected for my order to arrive. I too emailed the company about my order with no response. After 2 weeks, I called the number listed on this website for the company, and had a brief conversation with whoever answered, who assured me that my order would go out in the next few days, and it did.

I ordered seeds from this company before finding out about garden watchdog. It did take 6 weeks to get the seeds I ordered, but they came with often more than twice as much seed as stated. They also gave me a half-dozen packs of lagnappe similar seeds and 20% off of future orders since they were so late. I will use this company again, but will add in alot of lead time!!!!

I ordered a few packets of flower seed on Feb 22nd. It arrived on March 12th with an extra packet of seed!! I would order from this company again.

I have ordered 4 times in the last 12 months and always obtained the seeds safely. The number of seeds in each packet are much more than expected an always some additional packets were added. I'm very satisfied.

I received all the seeds I'd ordered, within a decent timeframe. Some were hard to find anywhere else. As a surprise, they threw in 2 free packets of perennail seeds.

I have ordered from this company for the past several years, usually at least twice a year. I have had good experiences. I have gotten the seeds that I ordered in what I consider to be a timely manner. I think the worst that has ever happened is that once I got duplicate seeds--like two of the same ones--and a couple of other packets I didn't order. Their seeds were good, and I have not had problems with misidentification. I have enjoyed how their selection has increased greatly.

I just received my seed order from Hardy Perennials and I am thrilled. It only took six business days in the middle of the Christmas rush!

Seeds are great - germinate well and ship fast. Sometimes extras are included. I've ordered perennial seed twice this year and had great results.

I placed my first order with Hardyplants.com and received very nice hostas. In their site they had them listed as liners and I thought they would be very small. I was very pleasantly surprised, they were not small at all, they were very healthy looking with nice root systems and their prices are extremely reasonable. The order took about a month to get here but I will definitely be ordering from them again.

I ordered for the 4th time this year. I really like the selection of seed varieties. Practically everything I would want is available on their web site. Why isn't this company in the top 30 list? This company has more product than any of the others on the list and the prices are much much cheaper for most of the selections.

I've just ordered seeds from hardyplants.com for the third time. As with last time, I had them in about a week. Though I have't started this batch up yet, I've always had fine germination, and the website has the kind of helpful detail that tends to come only from those who grow much of what they sell.
On January 18th, 2008, dirtdiver added the following:
They were slow to deliver this year. I finally called after about five weeks, and then I had my seeds within the week. When the package arrived, there were quite a few extras, both duplicates of things I ordered and things related to what I ordered--obviously chosen with some thought. As far as lateness, I don't know if they've gotten snarled up with seed imports, if they've gotten too many orders and are just overwhelmed (I think they're a very small company), or something else. But calling did the trick (or maybe they would have arrived then anyhow). They're still one of my go-to picks for interesting seed selection.

I placed a seed order with them for the first time this year and was very happy with the service. They have a great selection and give excellent service at good prices.

I have purchased from this company twice and was happy with both orders. They have a very extensive selection.

I got a great group of Hostas from Hardyplants.com. I assumed I would get small TC plants, but they look to be at least two-year old plants and the prices can't be beat! I would recommend them anytime. Be patient, however, as it took me nearly a month to get the plants and I live in the same state! Overall, great prices and selection. Average service...

This company was super fast in fulling and mailing my order. My order came within six days of placing the order. They have great prices also.

This company has a great selection of unusual seeds at reasonable prices. I received my order within a week, and, so far, have had excellent germination rates. I will be ordering from them again, most definitely.

I ordered from them for the first time last year because they had some specific things I wanted. The seeds came fast enough, and the germination was fine. An interesting seed list, with good germination info on the website.
