I ordered seeds from this company about 10 years ago and was very satisfied, but I read so many negative reviews on this site from 2012 and 2013 that I hesitated to try them again this year. I went ahead anyway and ordered 3 packs of seeds and had no problems at all.

This is my first year to order, but I am very pleased that they got me the seeds very quickly! We will evaluate this year how well they germinate and yield.

This is regarding a simple small seed order. I was pleased with the order process, confirmation email and turn around time in processing my order.

Overall my experience with Seeds of Change is good. Years ago I ordered from them before the height of the new green-living/organic food movement. The seed I ordered from their website all was true-to-type and germination was indeed excellent (in the order there were at least six varieties of tomatoes, and even more packs of herb and flower seeds). Once in the ground, plants grew very well the rest of the season. I do not garden exclusively one way (i.e., organic or traditional practices). What works best with least number of inputs, is efficient, using safe and sound practices, and minding good judgment for me works holistically.

At the end of March I ordered 20 strawberry and 10 asparagus crowns from Seeds of Change. I waited patiently for over a month for them to arrive, which was fine by me because our late season snow made it impossible to plant them immediatly anyways. After planting and letting them become established I came to realize that 5 (25%) of the strawberies and 2 (20%) of the asparagus failed to produce any leaves or in the case of the asparagus, any stalks. I contacted customer service this afternoon and explained what happened and that my expectations for live plants were 100% success. I almost immediatly received a response back stating that I would be receiving a refund next week for the plants that did not produce. I apprecited both the quick reply and the immediate reconcilliation of the situation. All in all a great experience with Seeds of Change.

I order from Seeds of Change because they have tomato varieties that do well in my challenging climate. They have varieties that will set fruit in lower than normal temperatures. I love the Ropreco paste tomato. Great germination. I have successfully grown it for several years. Seeds of Change is the only source I can find for it. I ordered early and received my seeds promptly.

I have placed orders with Seeds of Change for the past 2 years. I just received this year's order, which I placed over the Internet. It arrived promptly and was correctly billed.

I order from Seeds of Change every year. I think their selection is great, and they are one of the few companies out there that offer 100% organic seeds. They always ship promptly, and germination has been consistantly good. I look forward to their catalog every spring to see what has been added.

It is true the products cost more to ship, however, I truly like knowing my seeds are not genetically or hormonally engineered; a lot are heirloom. I have bought seed several times in the last few years and have been more than pleased with the produce I harvested. I will continue to order from Seeds of Change.

Enjoyed the catalogue, well organized and had nicely photographed. Prices and shipping are high. Selection is nothing special.

My experience with Seeds of Change began in 2007, when a friend gave me the company's butterfly seed collection as a holiday gift. Not only was I delighted to receive a wonderful grouping of seeds, but I was very impressed by the company's mission. I also love the seed packets, which are recyclable and filled with planting information (unlike other specialty seed companies, who often post a generic label on each packet and direct you to their website/seed catalog for more information). Since then, I've ordered from them several times and been perfectly happy with the products and services. The shipping charges seem reasonable -- I paid $11.70 for six seed packets and 20 crowns of strawberries, and $20.40 for a dozen live seedlings shipping 2nd Day Air, a charge that was very clearly stated on their website. Everything germinated and grew.

I purchased SOC packets at a local mom and pop retailer. I love the packaging, I think it's brilliant. Everything seems to be growing very well so far.

I am a professional cut-flower grower and have ordered from this company for a number of years. I placed an order with them on April 1. The person who took my order by phone was very pleasant. Only one of my choices was unavailable. I had the seeds by April 7.

There's definitely a risk in relying on a company that is as environmentally and socially responsible as SOC is. I also know the frustration of having backordered seeds that eventually don't come. But I do think there is something really important about supporting them - and hope that our support for them will help them to be more proactive.

I buy seeds from Seeds of Change every year. The seeds germinate excellently, the company has a solid reputation for producing excellent organic seed, they offer a great variety of seed including heirloom varieties, and their gardening equipment is of high quality. I have never had any difficulty with paying for or receiving my seed order. Last year, I ordered seedlings, but the order was canceled due to unfavorable weather at their grower’s farm. Regardless, seed orders have always been timely and uncomplicated. This company is one of my garden staples..

I placed an order for a mix of vegetables, herbs, and flower seeds the 1st week of Jan. I received my complete seed order 2 days later, although I selected standard shipping. I do live in New Mexico, but even so, I had ordered in the afternoon, so they must have really got on it.

Some interesting varieties, fair prices. Shipping was reasonably prompt and germination good.

I ordered a packet of eggplant seeds and a paper pot maker from their website. My order arrived about 12 days from my purchase date (a little long but not enough to deter me from ordering again) and they included a free packet of seeds. Very nice touch.

I had originally placed a large order with SOC but had to cancel the order a short time later. Customer Service responded very well and canceled the order for me with no problems. I did, however, decide to keep the potatoes that had already been shipped. They arrived on time and were excellent quality. I just pulled some out of the ground yesterday and they are absolutely beautiful.

We've been ordering from Seeds of Change for nearly ten years now, and my experience with them has been nearly always positive. The printed catalog and website include beautiful photographs and helpful descriptions. I've only ordered seeds, never plants. The seeds have a marvelous germination rate and the plants mature true to form as described. Good company, good philosophy, good product.

I have only ever had positive experiences with this company. I have always found their seed to be of excellent quality with high germination. I like that they sell unique varieties. It is the only place I have found the orange celosia, which is a gorgeous variety that has even yielded bicolor orange and red forms and a few exceptionaly huge ones as well as the multi stemmed plant. I appreciate any company that stands behind and supports organic and family farms. I have always have excellent experience with their shipping and they included the free packet again this year. I will continue to order from this company as long as I am producing cut flowers. I love their unique varieties of ornamental corn as well and have excellent luck with them even in heat and drought where modern hybrids fail.

The seeds I have received from Seeds of Change have been viable, and produced beautiful plants. I placed an order late this year (early May) and was pleased and suprised to find that I received my seeds within 5 days of ordering. Bonus seeds were also a plus.

I ordered for the first time this year. The web site was very easy to order from, and the seeds came very quickly. I'm looking forward to starting them in a couple of weeks.

I have been ordering from seeds of change for about 5 years now and am very impressed with the viability and vigor of their seed. I have had very good results with their squash seed. I found sweet keeper, hopi orange, and their buttercup seeds to be great performers. The first time I planted their sweet keeper squash seed they were huge, pretty to look at and made great squash pie.

They were very helpful this year when my package went missing. The only downer about that ended up being a late start on the sowing.

I planted the several varieties of tomatoes and peppers that I bought. Almost 100% germinated, and within a few days (my tomatoes are popping up after 5 days, and the peppers after about 4 days!) So I must say that I am very happy with this company.

I continue to order from Seeds of Change, in packets and in bulk. Even when on backorder, seeds come quickly and there is no extra shipping fee. Price is very reasonable when compared to other organic or heirloom seeds. Excellent selection and viability of seeds. Will continue to do business with them AGAIN & AGAIN...

edited to add:
I have been so impressed with the plants grown from their seeds, both by myself and others!!! With the selection of flowers, herbs, and vegetables, with heirloom and rare varieties included, ALL of which are Certified Organic and NON-GMO, i can't imagine getting seeds anywhere else!!! Supporting Sustianable Agriculture has new meaning for me ;-)

Absolutely positive part: I have ordered from Seeds of Change, probably, ten times over the last few years. I have found their seed to be of highest purity and germination and have always used it with great success--every time. Also, the fact that they sell only 100% certified organic seed is really an incredible feat to accomplish. In many ways, this is the best vegetable seed company in the US.

My online order was filled, shipped and receivedVERY quickly. Seeds of Change offers a 5% discount for online orders, and included a bonus packet of seeds (a variety I had considered ordering) as well. The packets are very pretty and colorful, not that it influences the quality of seeds within.

I don't know how I first came to know Seeds of Change, but I have been happy ever since. Over the years I have ordered many different types of seeds and been pleased with everything they've sent. My germination rates are high and the plant strains are right on target. I have ordered their catalogs for friends and give a large green thumb up for their mission. What a great company!
