I am very happy with the handling and shipping time. I placed an order for my mom, an avid tomato grower, for two of her current favorite varieties of tomatoes, Big Zach and Super Marzano, hoping to get them in time for a Christmas present. In total, I ordered six tomato seed packets, including my favorite cherry tomato, Sun Sugar. I got two pkgs of the Big Zach because I have heard from other tomato growers that big Zach is harder to germinate and needs a little extra care getting them to sprout.

I purchased several packages of tomato and pepper seeds from TT and had good luck with them. I will purchase from them again. The germination was acceptable and the plants were healthy.

Harvested about 250 tomatoes this year between the plants and seeds ordered from TT. I consider that a solid harvest! The Heirloom Tomato seeds were interesting. Some varieties were huge and tasty, and some were strange shapes and colors. Not sure what was what, but we had some delicious tomatoes out of the free seeds. The mortgage lifter tomatoes were my favorite, they grew nicely all through September. The Big Zacs were massive in size, but not as tasty as the ML's. The Bush Goliath were OK, nothing special but they did produce well. I will definitely order a bunch of plants from this company next year and try some more varieties of their tomatoes.

I have ordered from Totally Tomatoes twice, in 2011 and this year. In both cases I had communication with the staff via phone and email. The company was responsive and its representatives made a good effort to address my concerns. Last year I had some difficulty germinating two of the 18 varieties I purchased. I am happy with prices, selection, seed quality (on average), and specially customer service.

I recently ordered from these folks for the second time. They were out of stock on an items and promptly refunded my money. The planting garlic I ordered was in beautiful condition. The seeds I've gotten in the past were good. Their service is very prompt.

Ordered three kinds of tomatoes, two came plus a acceptable substitute. Recently planted them and 4 days later, they have sprouted. I'm satisfied with the price of the seeds and viability, although shipping could be a little cheaper. Now I need Mother Nature to do her part.

Seeds arrived promptly and in the condition I have grown to expect from its Totally Tomatoes' sister company, HPS (in other words, excellent).

Really great selection for tomato and pepper nuts. Good quality that is typical of the Jungs family.

A great company to deal with. We order a wide variety of tomato seeds every year and the order always arrives as it did again this year quickly. The selection is first rate and some seeds can not be found anywhere else.

This was my 1st year ordering from them. Turnaround was very quick and so far germination appears to be great! Will buy from again!

My order arrived exactly 2 weeks after I mailed it. Not bad considering I paid by check. They offer a wide variety of tomato and pepper seeds that I have never seen elsewhere so I found their selection to be impressive. ALL of the seed packets had more seeds in them than the number stated. Out of the 10 vegetables that I have already started, 9 of them had a nearly 100% germination rate. (Habanero 'chocolate' was the exception but still germainated at about 70%.) I am very satisfied with Totally Tomatoes and will order again in the future.

This year I ordered seed again (Dec 29). I received the order within a week. One variety was back-ordered and I received it 11 days later. Much better processing (makes me wonder if last year's order had really shipped when they said - or maybe USPS misplaced it). To be fair, this year's order was handled quickly and efficiently. Good germination on all seed last year - I will order from them again.

I have ordered from them for several years and have gotten good service. I like the wide diversity of varieties and hybrids offered. I order most of my tomato seed here.

I order from them regularly for most of my tomato and pepper seed. It's all about the price and variety. Every order has been on time, and great gemination rates. Sure, there are the other companies that have their exclusives, and when interested that's when I go elsewhere.

I ordered several types of tomato seeds. The seeds arrived in about a week and a half. I planted a few seeds from one of the tomato types and they started to come up within a week. The germination rate was good. I planted roughly 15 tomato seeds and have had 12 come up so far. I did not order any plants but would certainly order seeds again.

2009 is my second time ordering from this company. Fast delivery and complete, correct order. Will add to this review later regarding germination / seed quality. Last time had excellent germination and unused seeds kept for two more years of successful tomato and pepper starts. Nice catalog, great variety, but packet prices are the highest I pay anywhere. I wouldn't hesitate to make larger seed orders from this company if prices were more competitive. Free trial packets are nice and fun to try.

I ordered about 15 varieties of tomatoes in 2008. I was pleased with the transaction. Note to others the Microtom tomatoes are a novelty but not the tastiest.

I ordered from Totally Tomato last year and was pleased, so I ordered again this year. The order came promptly. It is too early here to plant the totmatoes. I will do that in about two weeks. I am starting the pepper seeds now. I will post again later to list germination rate.

If you want the best selection of tomoates or peppers anywhere, this is the company for you!! I have ordered from them before and there seeds are always the best!!! I placed several orders for seeds from different companies via the internet one snowy day and recieved them all within a day or two of each other. This company also included free packs of trial seeds which is always a great thing in my opinion!!

I started to wait on leaving feedback until I was sure seeds would germinate, but since we're smack dab in the middle of winter, I suspect if I were to wait the almost two months it would take to see if the seeds do right then unless germination rates were horrible I might completely forget to leave feedback.

Okay, I've started the tomato seeds purchased from TT, and while I did not even come close to planting all the seeds, I can say that every seed I did plant from the TT packets have sprouted. Good thing I only tried to start what I needed and not add a few extra in case of failure cause if I had I'd have WAY to many tomato plants coming up now.
(The one lone freebie tomato seed I planted has sprouted, as well. Yes, they sent me more than one, but I'm all ready worried that I'll have more tomatoes than even three of me could eat so I decided to only plant one of the freebies.)
I haven't tried to start any of the free pepper seeds yet, but because of the smashing success with the tomato seeds I truly believe the pepper seeds will come up fine, as well. And if they don't, well, they were freebies.

I have ordered my tomato and pepper seeds from Totally Tomatoes for several years now. This year is no exception. I placed an order in Dec. 2008 and had my order within 2 weeks. As usual they included free seeds. I usually have my garden planned out before ordering but I always find room to plant a few of the freebies they send me and never have a problem giving away plants from the seed I have sown. Last year I had a combined germination rate of 99%+. All the seeds I received this year are packed for 2009. They also offer a large selection of pepper and tomato varieties at prices cheaper than other specialty catalogs that I have seen.

Have been ordering seeds from TT for 5 years. Never had a problem. They are cheaper than Johnny's who I order most of my seeds from. I believe it's unwise and wasteful to order plants from any company. One gets much better plants when planting seed yourself.

This is my first year ordering from TT. I am giving a neutral rating right now. Here is why. I ordered several tomato and pepper seeds from TT along with other seeds that can not be planted yet (hence the rating). The germination rate on the peppers was outstanding. Not so with the tomatoes save one.. I planted Big Zac had great germination. The rest Abe Lincoln, Country Taste, and Italian Giant Beefsteak had very poor germination (about 10% but not more than 15%) I am not saying I will not oder again out of fairness cuz all seeds are not planted. But would like the ones in question to be replaced.

Have used TT for two years now and the orders have all been complete and shipped quickly. They have a large selection and the information on each selection is very helpful in choosing what I am looking for. The germination rate is excellent on what I have received.

I have used TT for the bulk of my seed ordering of a number of years. They have a great selection of pepper and tomato seeds. I do order early so I get what I want. The seeds germinate great. Better than other brands of seeds that I have started.

I have used TT for several years well over 20 orders and NEVER had any problems. they have always shipped in a reasonable fashion, however as with most any seed company there are busy times so if ordering in "peak season" most companies will have a delay.. NOT THAT I HAVE EVER HAD THIS WITH TT.

This was my first order from Totally Tomatoes. I've been ordering from Jung for years and have never been disappointed so I thought I'd give TT a try. I especially appreciate the fact that TT provides information regarding tomato disease resistance and tolerance. I'm new to gardening in the mid South and find that diseases and pests are far more of an issue here than they were in my previous location.

I have already placed 4 orders with TT this winter...spending a nice sum of money in total. I try to order all my seeds in Nov, Dec and Jan when the order houses are not so busy. Then I know I'll have what I want by planting time. However I had two packs of seeds on back order and one pack arrived by itself when they got it in. I am waiting on several packages of seeds from TT now. I'm sure they'll arrive in the next day or so because when I click on my account with them it tells me that my order has been processed a few days ago. I am a little concerned that I still haven't seen my pepperocini seeds that are back ordered and charged for according to my receipts...from my first order a while back. I don't know how they keep up with their back orders. We'll have to wait and see. It'll be simple. If by some chance I don't recieve my orders I'll let my credit card company deal with it and...I'll find another company to spend my money with next year. So far I am very pleased with TT and have no reason to complain.
