Seeds were ordered and I returned from a 3 day seminar to find my seed packets on my kitchen counter. I am following instructions and soaking the seeds now and will plant them this afternoon. I love when an order is delivered as promised!
Ordering process was painless, payment options were good, delivery was very prompt along with email notifications, packaging was good and seed quantity was very good. Definitely recommend this seed vendor.

My sister, a Master Gardener, had recommended this company so I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed with the ordering, billing and shipping process. I placed my order on 11/12/2014, paid easily with PayPal, and received my seeds on 11/14/2014. I\'ll update the review once I\'ve started germinating the seeds to report my success . .
One other note; you get a free pack of seeds with the order and I was able to select which seeds I wanted. I\'ve gotten free seeds from online vendors before, but it was always at their discretion as to what seeds I received. I appreciate this practice.

I've had remarkable success with the germination of seeds from this company.

If you enjoy seed-starting every spring, Onalee's site is an excellent source. .Not only does she offer a lot of unusual seeds, but gives detailed instructions on her site and even on the seed packets themselves.
I was also blown away when I sent an email to ask about some seeds that did not sprout well for me--and she replied with further instructions, and even replaced my failures!
Another plus with Onalee's Seeds is that every seed package contains more seeds than are specified. I really appreciated that because it is a rare thing when you open a packet of seeds and find some extras!

Onalee\'s website was easy and pleasurable to navigate through. Of special appreciation was her easygoing, friendly style of writing, the ability to enlarge photos, and extensive info about the plant and what to expect during the germination process. She included all this info on the seed package as well as a photo of the seedling.

My second order from this delightful company is as satisfying as the first. So exciting to grow perennials and annuals native to other parts of the US. Lots of growing details, pictures, and free packet of seeds with qualifying order.
I live in Florida and Onalee made a special effort to ship my pine cone ginger before her regular "season" began. I was so pleased with that order I recently ordered 3 more rhizomes. Both times I received not 3, but 5 rhizomes. Great website, fast shipping and great prices. Would recommend her to anyone.
My order was delayed and temporarily lost by the Post Office. When I contacted Onalee's Seeds, she immediately sent out a duplicate order--no questions asked. When I emailed her that USPS had finally delivered the original items, her response was "share them with a friend".
She has seeds (and plants) you don't find just anywhere, at reasonable prices and absurdly low priced shipping.

I love this company. I ordered seeds and cuttings and everything arrived quickly, plus bonus packages and an extra cutting. Onalee has a personal and positive way of communicating and absolutely cares about her products and clients. The information on the seed packages is very helpful, specially the picture of the seedling.
I placed an order from Onalee's Seeds on 1/26/15 and received it on 1/31/15. The order was promptly and correctly filled. Upon opening my parcel, I was pleased to find the seed packets chocked full of useful planting information, along with a color picture of the related seedlings. Two thumbs up for Onalee Seeds!!!
Ordered the Datura Collection. (5Types) Easiest way for me to start a collection! Super fast shipping, seeds look amazing, very nicely labeled and organized. Glad to find someone offering a collection of datura. I can't wait- Actually just sowed them! Can't wait to see them bloom. Thanks!

Just received an order from Onalee, for Morning Glory rooted cuttings and a couple of seed packets. The order was shipped quickly and packed securely. The cuttings look great, have been planted and I will have to wait and see how well they grow. At this time I can say I would certainly order from Onalee again.

The rooted MG cuttings did not do well, but it was my fault, not Onalees. Just received a second order of Butterfly Weed seeds, arrived in days from the time I ordered them. Great service and fine seeds. I certainly recommend her highly.On January 26th, 2015, gardenpom added the following:
Another order of seeds arrived today. Love the detailed planting instructions. Much better than a LOT of larger companies. I have not had a lot of luck germinating seeds lately, I hope with the better instructions provided these will.
I ordered my seeds on Wednesday and had them in my hands the following Monday. My seed packets were carefully packaged and arrived in good shape.
I love the detailed instructions on each packet. The picture of the seedling is just icing on the cake. Now I know what to look for come spring.
I also appreciate the free seed packet that was tailored to the other seeds purchased in my butterfly theme.
Last but not least is the free shipping with a minimum purchase of $6. Many times I have purchased seeds from larger companies and the cost of shipping exceeded the cost of the seeds.
Only time will tell the quality of the seeds themselves but I have no doubt I will have great success.

I recommend ordering from Onalee. I was kept inform every step of the way as soon as I placed my order till it arrived, (carefully packed)at my door. Love the packaging with detailed instructions and info and even a photo of the seedlings. Fast service, quality merchandise and affordable prices.
Loved that I could order simply seeds and in smaller quantities. They were perfectly packaged with instructions and offers of further help if I need it. Plus, they arrived so quickly! I will recommend Onalee's site and be back myself! Thank you so much, Onalee, for the wonderful customer service!
I received my seed order today and couldn't be happier - everything was well packed and labelled - love the seedling pics and info right on the seed envelopes. Many thanks for the bonus seeds - so very generous and an awesome selection! Will definitely be recommending your company to anyone searching for seeds of all types.
Nice selection and reasonable prices. Quick delivery. And 2 free bonuses. :-) For someone who literally spends several hundred $$$ per year on seeds, this vendor is rated right up there at the top. 5 Stars.
Great seed packages, love the description and seedling pictured. Order was received promptly and packaged in bubble envelope. The website has unusual seeds which I loved and the prices are great. Will continue to shop here.

I am in love with you Onalee. I am a newbie to succulents and am starting small with a few different ones. I ordered the 10 plants and 50 babies of Mother of Thousands. Had always liked the look of them for years just did not have time for them. But I do now. Both plants and seeds came very fast and well wrapped. I even received more plants than I ordered. And I want to thank you very much for that. I will be ordering more from you very soon and am having so much fun looking at your online catalog. Keep up the great work.

This is my second purchase from Onalee's. Received both within days of purchase (altho we are in adjoining towns). She obviously takes a lot of care in her packaging. Seeds are labeled with name and care instructions. I will definitely purchase from Onalee's again. Thanks!
Onalee seed company makes mail ordering a wonderful experience. I was able to find seeds that weren't available anywhere else (white hyacinth bean vine) and then when I had a germination problem, the seeds were replaced within 2 days! That is caring customer service. You can be certain that all of my seeds will come from Onalee from now on.

This is my first experience ordering seeds online. My package arrived many days before the estimated arrival time. It was very sturdily packed, and the seed packages have helpful color photos of the seedlings. I am very pleased to have found hyacinth bean plant seeds. I am also excited by the free package of seeds. I had a wonderful experience with Onalee's and will definitely recommend her site to others. Once my plants grow into what they are supposed to look like, I will try to post photos. Thank you!

I am so so happy that I ordered seeds from you. I came through your website while searching for my favorite kind of plant seeds on google which is Butterfly pea seeds. I don't know why but I love those flowers and it is easy to grow too. I used to have that plant two years back after a long trip back home it died because no one to take care of. I was searching for those seeds a lot since then. Finally, I came through your site and ordered those seeds immediately. You have cleared my doubts and helped me in the ordering process promptly. I give you 100% for your service and quality.
I have ordered 3 varieties of plant seeds from you and I have received a free bonus pack of plant seeds. I am definitely recommending you to my friends. And also, I will definitely order more from you in the near future.
I ordered the seeds 3 days back and I received them today in a safe and protective package. I love the way you packed the seeds and printing the instructions and image of seedling on the seeds envelope. I will sow the seeds soon and will share you the images or feedback again.
I really appreciate your service and I wish you a success in your business.

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!!On May 11th, 2014, Mima56 added the following:
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 Onaleeseeds.com!

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!!
