I order a lot of seeds from different companies and this is the first time I received a hand written note! I also received special instructions for the seeds, besides the instructions on the seed packets. I also received extra seeds as well. from the moment I ordered the seeds, I had emails notifying every step of the seeds being processed to when they where delivered.
The whole process was very personalized, I am totally impressed.
I will continue to order from them.

I was browsing the the internet when I came across the site for Summer hill seeds and as it is such an interesting site I decided to send for a variety of seeds which I find hard to obtain where I live,so last november I sent in my order and in less than three weeks I had the order delivered to my house and when I opened the parcel I was very pleased with the packaging and the extra seeds also the hand written greeting which was included so I highly recommend this company to anyone who is thinking of buying seeds.
Last year I ordered from this company, so I chose to again this year. Again, it was a great experience. Three packets of free seeds were sent with my order based on the other seeds I ordered. In addition, the selection of garden vine seeds is amazing and there is a lot to choose from. Cannot wait to order more next year. Easy to order from, order information updated regularly, and shipped well in a solid puffy envelope.

I helped facilitate the recent co-op with Summer Hill Seeds, and it could not have gone better. Robyn (at Summer Hill) went above and beyond to make things run as smoothly as possible, re-ordering and re-stocking seeds in order to fill requests. We got a nice discount and well-packaged seeds, with germination instructions and a promise that Robyn would continue to stand by to provide any help we might need. Thanks, Robyn!
Thanks also to Summer Hill's webmaster Mitchell, who created a co-op ordering page for us on the website. Sweet!
I'll certainly order from Summer Hill again, either as an individual or through a future group purchase opportunity!

Missed out on the seed coop but there were so many unique seeds,I placed an independant order. Just received my order a couple days ago and couldn't be happier. Two of bonus pkgs of seeds and a lovely handwriten message.
This was my first time ordering from Summer Hill. Shipping was quick, there was a handwritten personal note attached along with extra seeds of a different variety of seeds that I ordered. Very pleased, will definitily order again!
Very impressed with this company. Was my first time ordering seeds from the internet and didn't really know what to expect. I liked that they sent e-mailed updates about when my order shipped & the e-mail address. When I got my packet, there was a handwritten thank you along with a packet of additional seeds that I had been thinking about getting. Was very excited and even my husband was impressed. Will definately be ordering from this company again.
Wonderful company! Fairly priced and they send bonuses that are based on your order - I ordered some plants for a new flower bed for my daughter and they sent me a package of seeds that I'd been looking for everywhere and unable to find as a bonus! Great communication and customer service - I can't say enough nice things about this company.
I chose to order from this company because of the good reviews on this website, and I could not be more pleased that I did! My order was shipped just a day or two after placing it, and it arrived by the end of the same week. These aren't commercial packets, but rather glassine envelopes within little plastic bags, but they are well marked, with clean seed and the seed counts are very generous. They also gifted some seeds that were very much the kind I would have chosen for myself. I had ordered all variegated varieties, and the gift seeds were also for variegated plants. Putting that kind of thought into an order is impressive. I will definately be ordering from these folks again! A wonderful experience in every way!

On a scale of 1 to 10, Summer Hill Seeds is a 15! Ordering from Robin was a refreshing, feel good experience that definitely brought a smile to my face. Super fast shipping to Alaska, a personal, handwritten note, great packaging with individual directions...and bonus seeds to top it all off. It was obvious she took the time to select bonus seeds that would complement what I'd purchased, along with taking my growing conditions into account. The website is easy to navigate, a pleasure to peruse and complete (meaning pictures, not just descriptions)...I will ditto all the other positive reviews...and then add 5 stars on top!

Awesome experience! Great seeds, very good prices and the shipping was lightening fast. Add to all that, a hand written note and extra seeds and you get as close to perfection as you can get. I will be shopping here on a regular basis from now on.
I've purchased seeds from Summerhill several times and have always been completely satisfied. The selection is great, prices reasonable, good communication, fast shipping and a high germination rate. What more could you ask for!

Never had such a pleasant surprise like with this Company.
They have hard to find out- of usual seed offers. The price is very moderate and the shipping was done the same day I ordered and I received it within 10 days, which is fast considering it had to be shipped all the way to Europe!
I too was touched by the personal handwritten note where she thanked me even so I had only ordered 1 single packet of seeds. To my surprise I even got a gift on top of a similar type like I had ordered!!! The seeds were beautifully packed with much care and love with an individual instruction for each type besides a whole letter with general seed-germination instructions!
What a wonderful buying experience. First the fantastic selection of hard to find seeds; second the great price; third the ease of ordering; fourth the quick shipment - with extra goodies - and a personal note; as if all that wasn't enough, I had a question and emailed the company and had a thorough response within the day. It's like dealing with a friend. I'll be back to shop/buy and I'll be recommending Summerhill to many many other gardeners.
Summerhill Seed carries hard to find seeds. The selection is great. I received my order quickly and error free. The customer service with this company is above any that I have received with any other seed company. I love the fact that they took to the time to include a hand written note with my order. The seeds are packaged very well with very clear information on each. The extras that they sent with my order were wonderful. It was like they read my mind as to what else I would love. Very, very happy with my experience with Summerhill Seed. I will be ordering from them again and again.
Recently received my first order from this company. I too enjoyed the nice touch of a plant marker with each seed packet. Response was swift and accurate, and I was very surprised to see the variety of rare plants which they carried, many of which are variegates that come true from seed. The crowning touch for me was not just that they did include extras which were not cheap fillers, but rather were packets from among the standard offerings in the catalog. That they took the time to choose for me some extra seeds which they guessed would fit my interests based on what I did order, showed an exceptional interest in cultivating not only customers, but gardening friends. First class all the way.
I have enjoyed my quest for both new cultivars and old favorites @ Summer Hill Seeds. The customer appreciation is shown by every order I place. I give Summer Hill 42 gold stars! Sherry - in sunny Central Oregon
I found ordering from their web site very easy. I just received my order and am very pleased with it. The seeds were well packaged with clear germination instructions for each pkt., and even a little plastic plant label in each pack.(I thought this was a nice touch)
They even sent along some free seeds!
Summer Hill Seeds carry some hard to find/unusual seeds at a reasonable price. I will definately be ordering from them again!!
The site was easy to use and the selection of seeds was really nice. I found seed varieties that I haven't seen before. The order came quickly, and was packed very well. I appreciated the germinating instructions that came with every pack that I ordered. The site doesn't really specify that so I was pleasantly surprised. I recommend Summer Hill Seeds highly.
I ordered from this company a few days and I got my seeds today. I have to say that I am really pleased. The seeds were delivered promptly and I thought that they were high quality, fresh seeds. I thought the website, http://www.summerhillseeds.com, was very easy-to-use. The whole experience was very seamless and overall great!
