I am starting my first Monarch butterfly garden, and based on DG ratings, I placed my first order with Onalee. I certainly wasn't disappointed! Timely emails re my order and USPS got my order here quickly (you never know!). I am so impressed with the seed envelopes that Onalee has printed. What great info! I have gardened for 30 years and still I picked up a few tips! Considering the expense of packing, shipping, and the free seeds, my total cost was extremely reasonable. For the record, I ordered Asclepias curassavica (2), Tithonis rotundifolia, and an heirloom Cucumber.

I had terrific luck with Onalee's seeds this spring and summer! I just received my second order.....with thoughts of winter sowing for the first time. All of Onalee's seed packs have wonderful sowing instructions and detailed growing advice. Go to her website and you will find terrific suggestions! Free shipping + bonus seed pack of your choice. Gotta love her!!

Received another order. For certain things, I just go to Onaleeseeds! Whatever I order is always first quality. Shipping and packaging are amazing, and if you need extra advice, replies are super quick! Find Onalee on FB. You can tell that she loves what she does and has a great rapport with her customers!

I ordered crocosmia bulbs and cardinal climber seeds. I made my purchase from Onalee's Seeds based on feedback from this site. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. My items arrived quickly and were well packaged. The bulbs were much larger than expected. The seeds were also high quality. I'm really impressed with Onalee's Seeds.

I was searching for four-o-clock tubers and e-mailed onalee's to inquire. They actually e-mailed me back and told me that they would notify me when the weather was warmer and let me know when to order. When the weather warmed up they notified me-the ordering process was smooth they kept in contact during process and I received the LARGEST tubers I ever saw. This company is amazing and I will pass the word to all of my gardening friends. Thank you!!!

What a delightful surprise doing business with Onalee's.
Beginning with the user friendly website,searching the site and placing an order was as uncomplicated as it gets.
The secure purchasing makes doing business stress-free.
You can tell that customer satisfaction is a priority - first by the wording on the website and reinforced with delivery of your purchase. My order arrived in jet plane speed time , seeds were packaged in an easy to read envelope on which very personal ,easy to understand information was provided complete with seedling photos. Regardless of the fact that they were just packets of seed, packets were bubble wrapped as an extra measure of safety.
With all the thoughtful attention to these details Onalee's manages to offer gardening opportunities at a very affordable price.And they add a bonus freebie to boot!
I definitely plan on ordering some bulbs and cuttings in the very near future as well as recommending others to give them a try.
Onalee's should be the standard that other companies strive to achieve.

As a newcomer to Onalee, I am so excited by her expertise and offerings. My personal experience with Onalee herself has been exceptional (I don't know how she does it all!) and I feel like a valued customer from the start. I am not at all surprised that her company is top-rated. I couldn't be happier with the pictures, information, and personal tone in what to know about the seeds that interest me. I trust that this will be just a beginning of our relationship.

Ordered the two Sazanami Morning Glories "Ripples". Received the package faster than I expected and it was beautiful. The package was the original large full color Japanese packaging that I'd never seen before. That impressed me.

The price was just right for the amount of seeds, so in quantity and quality it actually worked out to be a great deal when you consider no one else has these particular varieties.

Thank you Onalee!

I'll be coming back to!

Update 4/4/14: It has been a while, maybe a year now, that I've been buying from Onalee and all I can say is I am always extremely satisfied. Never had a problem, always fast delivery and exactly what I wanted. Onalee has morning glory seeds I could not find anywhere else! Can't wait for the next purchase!!

Ordered and received seed quickly and in great condition.
All packets exceeded minimum seeds per packet.
Placed order during a free seed packet giveaway and received it with my order.
Free shipping in the US. Emailed a question and got a quick reply.
I would have ordered a lot more if she had more edibles for temperate climate US.
Thank you Onalee!

WOW - I received my order in the mail today from Onalee's Seeds, LLC. I placed the order less than 6 days ago and it came half way across the U.S. I received everything I ordered and more. Bubble wrap was included in the envelope to prevent damage of seeds. There was no shipping and handling on my order, which was over $25. Great - Onalee!!! I ordered from other seed order companies at the same time, and am yet to receive my orders from them. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!! Seed looks really good. Thanks - too for the bonus.

Ok, I have ordered several variety packs of Datura and while most varieties within the pack germinated great, there was one that was giving me issues. I emailed Onalee and asked her if there was some trick like chipping or soaking. She offered to replace both packs from another batch of the single white Datura at no charge. I wasn't asking for this at all. She was very friendly to correspond with. One of the best online companies to work with.

I just received my first order of seeds from Onalee yesterday in Washington State! They shipped (free) 4 days ago from her Florida location! Nice! I found Onalee's like so many others it would appear. I Googled & Binged my way around looking for Castor seeds and maybe something else large and tropical/showy for my zone 5b super short growing season. I was shunted to amazon and many many seed and nursery vendors from huge to tiny,all with a common denominator. *If they have what you want, and the right ( smaller for me ) quantities per pack, either the seed price or the shipping--------------- or Both just didn't " feel good ". Back to Bing and Onalee's. My oh My! This felt better! My 1st search showed me all 3 of my Castor choices with great info and actual "in the dirt" pics of same. Done and Done !! Now,how about something else Odd to my zip code perhaps? Under Odd I found Coral Bush seeds that I believe will be exactly what I need for some truly tragic growing spots closer to the house than the Castor plants will be.So now I have 4 packs of seeds in my order,and at checkout I find that the shipping is Free ------ and since I have more than 3 packs ordered--------1 of those is free also! I won't expand on the great packaging, pics, & planting info as everybody notes this right away,so to those points and getting several more seeds per package than guaranteed(all perfect in my case),I'll just say I absolutely agree with the masses here. I'm not someone that normally buys seeds online,but I do buy many other things online and what Onalee's has managed to do is make my experience FEEL GOOD. That's not an easy thing. Onalee now has one more devoted fan for her particular style of selling me what I want for less than I expected to pay! That is a winning business model that is serving her and her customers very well IMHO. 'nuf said!

The people at this company grow their own seeds and plants so they know their products very well. I am impressed with the customer service and do not know how it could be better. My recent order was shipped two days after the order and arrived (from FLA to MX) in good shape and good time. I was truly delighted with the thorough information on the seed packaging. The most wonderful feature of the seed packaging is a clear image of a seedling and they are the only seed company i've done business with who includes this feature. Always my first question is "what does the seedling look like"? I don't know how many times i have nurtured new growth only to find out it was not the plant i thought it was so i am just crazy about this feature. All together this was a very positive experience and i recommend this company highly.

On January 28th, 2012, vitrsna added the following:

When I'm looking for seeds, Onalee is the first site I visit. I've just received my 3rd order from this site. The information on the website and seed packets is exceptional and because Onalee grows and harvests her own plants/seeds, she is very knowledgeable. The seeds have always been sent within two days of order and received in good condition and good time. Also, Onalee's dedication to customer service goes way beyond the norm. It is clear she wants her customers to be happy with their purchases. Always a positive experience.
On May 30th, 2012, vitrsna added the following:

I received another order today from Onalee and this remains one of my favorite seed companies. The company appears to be growing but the quality of the seeds and personal services is still excellent. I appreciate the reliability. There are many more seeds on offer by this company so if you haven't checked in for awhile you might want to take a look at what has been added to the inventory. Also, there is a new "search" service available for a small fee. If you are having difficulties finding the seeds you want, Onalee will do a search for you using her contacts. This could be especially helpful when looking for rare or exotic seeds.
On August 2nd, 2012, vitrsna added the following:

I order seeds regularly from all parts of the world and one important thing that i've learned is what a big difference ordering seeds from the grower (as opposed to a company who receives their seeds from outside sources) makes. Onalee grows the seeds she sells and shares her growing experiences with her clients. She knows all the quirky habits of the various seeds she sells and i've found this saves me from making any number of mistakes and also increases my chances of having germination successes. I always have confidence in the freshness of her seeds and that's why i continue to order from Onalee. I am one happy customer!
On May 3rd, 2013, vitrsna added the following:

Onalee continues to be one of my favorite vendors and has maintained a high level of customer service (unsurpassed, really) products, and reliability. I can't think of any way she could do what she does any better. I wish more vendors would add seedling photos to their seed packets. This is something that gives Onalee an edge over the others. I've found most of the seedling photos posted on the internet unreliable and just spent a month at least raising and tending a seedling only to find out it is not what I thought it was. This never happens with the seeds i purchase from Onalee.

Hey there, vitrsna! I want to make sure you know that I had to go up on the fees for international shipping. The Post Office increased it by nearly 100%. I know you've commented on how low the shipping to MEX was, so I just wanted to let you know it's now a $3.00 flat fee to intl destinations on top of the $6 minimum order. Thanks so much for your continued support! -Onalee"
