I ordered two packages each of Aquadulce Fava Beans and Fordhook #242 Lima Beans from Landreth in February. According to the catalogue, the Lima packets were to contain "about" 20 seeds while the Fava packets were to contain "about" 25. The two packages of each type, however, only planted one single row of about 15' in length per variety, because there were no more than about 25 to 29 seeds total in both packages of each. Furthermore, although the Lima Beans germinated well the Favas didn't, and I only ended up with about ten viable plants. I sent them a message about this from the contact section of their website, and never got a response. I don't plan to order from them again.

I wanted to buy four packets of heirloom veggie seeds from this company. I was online and went to check out. A variety of shipping options was offered. The cheapest one was $6.50. Or I could pay as much as $74 to ship overnight (4 packs of seeds from PA to NY). I decided not to buy the seeds, because from what I could see, this company is centering its profit-making in shipping, which irks me no end. I sent them an email about it, adding that if they were wondering why so many potential customers did not go through with purchasing, they should look to their shipping prices. I went and bought the seeds from another company that charged me $3.00 for shipping them.

Altho their prices are very good; I would not buy from Landreth Seed Company again. I would recommend that others stay away from them.
