Twilley is the best seed company that I've ever done business with. They offer a wide variety of seeds, many that home gardeners and small farmers can't buy from another source. Usually, a small farmer who needs more than a pack or 2 of one variety will have to buy several small packs at an astronomical price or buy a huge amount, much more than she can use. Twilley's offers amounts for small farms at a good price. The seeds are excellent-I've always gotten the best germination rates with their seeds. Their customer service reps are helpful and polite, and their shipping is lightning fast.

I think it’s probably just human nature that we tend to post comments about vendors when we have a problem with them. I certainly have done so here in the past. But when I put together my list of recommended seed suppliers for a Senior Gardening posting this year, I realized that I should make a positive comment here about each of our suppliers that have performed so well over the years.

Ordered from four companies last year, Twilley gets a tie for first. I faxed in my order in October, got a call within an hour with a knowledgeable, understandable human being who explained that they were out of stock on three items (which I didn't think was bad for that late in the season), and was able to very quickly and politely help me choose substitutes. Seeds came in under a week. Prices are comparable to anywhere else and better than most. Plus, the seeds are sealed in a foil 'vacuum' packet instead of just paper, much better for storage. So I would definitely order from them again.

Old fashioned company. The selection is extensive, prices are reasonable, and the service is good. In spring 2011 I ordered about thirty different varieties of vegetable and flower seeds. They all performed well except one item that the company sent a replacement for without me asking for it. My first choice for seeds this coming growing season.

I like this company. They have a great selection of squash seeds with the disease resistance I need for our area. The people are super nice, prices are reasonable and shipping was fast.

I purchased seeds in 12/04 and they all did well. I would do business with them again.

I have only used Otis Twilley for vegetable seeds. They have an excellent selection of the newer hybrids. Their service has been excellent. One of the best mailorder companies for obtaining current varieties of vegetables. Very little in the way of traditional cultivars.

Still using Twilley for the bulk of my orders. Good seed, good service. Excellent choice of vegetable cultivars that perform well for market gardeners in the southeast.

I've only ordered a few packets from them here and there but was always satified. It looks like the negative comment was intended for Ty-Ty Nursery (next in list), which does indeed have a bad reputation.

I have ordered from Twilley for many years. This is the best overall mail order company in my opinion.

I have been using Twilley seeds for years and have always had great success. This year has been no exception. I moved 3 years ago and had several pacages of seeds left from the 98 season and I planted those along with seeds I purchased this year, the only seeds that didnt come up were the green beans so I replaced them with new seeds from 2002 and Just like always great success.

Good varieties and service. Caters somehat more to commercial growers, with emphasis on varieties that are reliable, productive, disease resistant, widely adapted, ship well, and produce marketable fruit. Still, very useful to the home gardener as well. Very informative catalog. Among the best collections in the nation for some vegetables, such as corn and watermelon.

I ordered over $200 worth of seeds from here and I am very satisfied. I experienced about a 90% germination rate on all my flowers and vegetable seeds. They are reasonably priced also.
