This spring I ordered Sweet William, Dianthus and Marigold seeds from this company. I started a number of other seeds under the same conditions as I started these. With my other seeds I had very good germination rates. Well over 90% on each of them. With the seeds I got from Eden Brother's, I had VERY poor germination. I'd be lucky if it was 10%. I'm not at all happy with the seeds I got from them and only hope the bulbs I am suppose to be getting shipped in the fall are better than the seeds.
I must say that Eden Brothers has been an excellent company to deal with. I ordered some Canna bulbs last year, and understood that this was a spring shipment. I pretty much forgot about the order, and after the first of the year inquired by e-mail the status, and asked about a general time frame of when "spring shipment" was.
My e-mail was promptly answered, and answered appropriately.
On April 14th, I received a confirmation e-mail that my order had shipped, and a tracking number was provided. My canna bulbs arrived on time.
When I opened the box, I was amazed to see extremely well packaged bulbs, they were huge, moist, and had growth coming from every bulb. It looked like each bulb was hand picked and just pulled out of the best black, moist, dirt I have ever seen.
The next day my Dad and I planted the Canna bulbs ...and within 3 day's the shoots from the bulbs began to reveal themselves.
Not one bulb was "lost", every one is hardy, and growing like crazy.
The bulbs have been in 8 day's and every shoot is about 6 - 8" out of the ground.
If your looking for a great company to deal with, that provides quality plants...look no further than Eden Brothers.
Thank You Eden Brothers...for the GREAT customer service, and quality plants.
I can't wait to see the blooms from my Yellow King Humbert's and Ambassador (Black Knight) Canna's.
Eden Brothers is truly one of the internet garden's hidden gems. I ordered several flower seeds from them. They arrived fast and the price was about a 1/3 of that for one of the biggest sellers of seeds. I set up several trays and have over 95% success. Pretty darn good. My only issue would be that the seed package often contains little or no "basic" plant information. You have to go back to the website for the basic info. Something I hope they will fix in the future. Eden Brothers is now my 1st seed site when I'm looking for something.
Very pleased with this company! I placed a few orders with them and received top notch tulip bulbs and daffodils. I would recommend them very highly! They also shipped in a timely manner which I appreciated.
From my experience dealing with this company, I was very happy. I purchased wild flower seeds and zinnias. There prices are great and the ship time was very fast. I definitely reccommend eden brothers and will order from them again.
