This guy are great!! I will definitively re-order again !! I ordered a couple of items because I want to change my small grass lawn in a more eco-friendly alternative. Thyme chamomille were my first choices. Since I need a moderate high number of seed Thyme seed garden gave to me the best price for a good amount of seed. The shipping was fast, the people that I contacted by phone were very gentle and custom oriented.But more important the seeds were really fresh!! My thyme seeds germinate in 4 days.. 4DAYS!! If you check on line people give you an orientative time of 20 days, and strongly suggest to go by cutting , that supposedly is more esily!

I ordered seeds previously and received them promptly-- lovely packets, excellent germination, fair prices and a huge selection. I also enjoy the newsletter I receive with lots of helpful information, recipes, etc. I am late in leaving my thanks, but thank you very much Thyme Garden for existing!
A fine experience! I ordered five hop rhizomes ( one each of Cascade, Fuggle, Mt. Hood, Brewer's Gold, and Sterling, as I was not sure which varieties would be best for my location in Connecticut) last spring, and all five arrived in good condition, with small visible sprouts. I had to keep them in the refrigerator crisper for a week prior to planting them (as suggested), and when planted they all grew successfully, showing their first growth within three weeks of planting in mid-April. By the end of the first growing season the Cascade, Brewer's Gold, and Sterling bines were the largest, having reached the top of my 8 foot high tower and spread out across it in various directions. I actually managed to harvest a small amount from the Brewers Gold and Cascade plants in late August, but the Sterling hops matured so quickly that they were already dried out when I returned from a vacation in mid-August. the other two varieties set a few hop cones, but not enough to bother harvesting them. The bines began to yellow and die back in the fall, but some were green up to the first hard frost in early November. To allow for a more practical harvest, I will have to extend my growing frame upward by about five or six feet this spring.

I have been extremely happy with seeds, hop roots, and plants ordered from Thyme garden. Seeds came promptly each time I have ordered them, and germination rate and plant health were superb. In one instance, I was moving cross-country and seeds ended up in a broiling hot storage area over the summer (candles stored there melted), and didn't get planted until 2 years from purchase --yet when planted, seemed to explode out of the ground with vigor! The hops and plants arrived at the times projected, and have shown excellent growth. The hops immediately showed a tendency toward World Domination. Fascinating variety of seeds. Seed packs are smaller, waste less paper on packaging, with no sacrifice of actual seed number. The herb selection is unmatched, and this year I ordered some herbs (goldenseal, cohosh) in plant form at a price far below what I've paid in the past at nurseries (when I could even find them) --they arrived bareroot, carefully packaged and moist, wonderfully healthy and settled in nicely. I've now grown Thyme Garden products on both sides of the country (Oregon and South Carolina), and they've earned top place in my list of favorites.
This is the second year I have ordered from Thyme Garden. They have a diverse selection of plants, some I'm unable to find elswhere. They also practice organic, earth-friendly standards which are important to me.
The staff are helpful and friendly both via email and with extra growing hints written on the printed plant info. Everything I've purchased from Thyme Garden continues to thrive so far. I am very pleased and will continue to order from them for years to come
I recieved my order today and was extremely pleased! Plants were HOT GLUED to the bottom of the box so they would not fall around! I thought that was a very excellent idea. They were very well and carefully packaged, and came dry enough for herbs to handle, but the box was humid inside, showing that they had been wrapped in moist newspaper originally. Everything was so skillfully and carefully wrapped in little elastic bands to keep the greenery looking perfect. All contact I've had with the nursery has been positive, they had to substitute plants, and emailed me for a list of possibilities.
In the passed I was very pleased with my seed purchases, and I will certainly be buying plants again from The Thyme Garden (as well as seeds). You can not get this variety of herbs in my neck of the woods!!
I have been purchasing seeds from The Thyme Garden for at least seven years. My order always arrives within a week complete. I also like that they throw in a bonus seed pack. Their seeds always germinate quite quickly. What I like the best is the seeds they have available that I can't find anywhere else,such as corsican mint and a really low creeping thyme. Truly, they are one of my favorite seed companies for herbs.
I am really pleased with the Thyme Garden. I ordered more than 100 plants last year. All arrived in excellent condition. They were carefully packed, were a good size, and very healthy. Everything I ordered survived. They even called to check to see how everything arrived and called again later to see how the plants were doing. I have placed another big order for this year. I have tried many different herb producers, and they are definitely my favorite.
