Great selection and fair prices. Seeds were shipped quickly to me even during the peak of the seed starting season. I now have 11 tomato varieties germinating from Sample Seed Shop - very high germination rate so far. Will do business with again.

I have ordered from Sample Seed Shop a couple of times now. It was a pleasure doing business with her both times! One order had an item out of stock. I was refunded and sent a bonus pack of seeds! Great prices. It is one of my favorite seed sources.

It seems the whole thing was a mix-up. Remy quickly responded and let me know what happened. It seems that the bonuses were not meant to be substitution items and i was refunded for the seeds that were not available. Remy also offered to send me the seeds when they are available.
Thank you Remy! You are a very good business person. We are all humans and mistakes happen.
I have changed the rating with The Sample Seed Shop to positive.

Extremely, satisfied with my order! AMAZING prices, pretty quick shipping (a little more than a week), and such charming personalized packaging... really cheered me up. Can't wait to start planting my seeds!

I ordered from Remy for the third time last week. I received my seeds yesterday and as always a bonus pack of seeds was added. Great selection, great prices, and prompt order fulfillment.

I placed my first order a week ago (primarily for tomato seed and pepper seed) during the holiday season and received everything today- including a thoughtful bonus pack of seeds. The Sample Seed Shop has great prices, fast shipping, and quick responses to emails. Thank you, Remy and Nina, for the wonderful customer service - it is most appreciated!

GREAT service...and quick, reasonably priced shipping. I love that their prices are nice, and the quantities are great for a smaller garden...at times I've ordered from other places and I've ended up with way more seeds than I could use.

I've ordered from The Sample Seed Shop several times and am always impressed with the quality of their seeds and the care with which they are packaged. Everything I ordered last year performed beautifully this summer. I just received my latest order and am drooling over the bonus sent (how did I miss THAT on the site?). I can't wait to get started on wintersowing and visions of annuals are dancing in my head :) As always, everything arrived within days of my order and was in excellent condition. Highly recommended!!

This seems like a really wonderful company! I received all of my seeds promptly and a few extras as well!! Absolutely pleasant experience and I recommend them highly.

I was so excited to receive my seeds yesterday!! I plan on using some of them for winter sowing. They arrived promptly & I love the "bonus" pack of seeds (thank you!!). I also loved the the snowflake sticker on the outside of the shipping envelope & the colorful stamps on the receipt. Those special touches are so nice. I will update again when my seeds start to emerge this spring.

This is my second year ordering from The Sample Seed Shop. I can't say enough good things about this place: awesome prices, great varieties (especially tomatoes and flowers), quick shipping, nice little seed envelopes, very helpful descriptions in the online catalog. The only down side may be that the seeds are so cheap and the varieties offered are so appealing that it's very easy to get carried away and order too much! I got excellent germination on everything I started last year (it's a little early to report on this year's seed). The bonus packs of seeds are fabulous: last year I got some Orange Minsk tomato seeds as a bonus, and now it's my favorite orange tomato of all time! I can't wait to try this year's bonus tomato seed. The best part is it seems like Remy chooses a bonus pack of seeds to compliment the rest of the order, which is a really nice touch. Highly recommended!!

You have to appreciate descriptions that sound like they come from a gardener and not a salesman. She has the biggest variety I've seen of odd colored and shaped tomatoes and at $1.25 a pack, I ordered more than I have room for as well as some peppers. I had to make a second order a few days later because the wife thought we should grow more than salsa ingredients. Both orders were shipped with bonus seeds that were hand picked based on what I had ordered and both were right on the money as far as matching my preferences.

Sample has a reasonable offering of both veggie and flower seeds at budget prices, so that one can experiment with new varieties without breaking the bank.

Great selection of seeds and I really like the descriptions. The affordability of Remy's seeds allowed me to try out some new things this year, which I really appreciated! She sent extra seeds, which was a wonderful touch! I'm already planning on what I want to order next year and wondering what's she going to add! Thank you Remy for a great experience!!

Recently i placed an order with Sample seeds and i was pleased that everything i ordered arrived ok and the germination of their seeds is all going well.

Great price. Super fresh seeds—some sprouted in a day! Fast and inexpensive shipping. Looking forward to buying more seeds from them.

Incredibly low prices, great selection, & prompt shipping. The website is minimal, but I don't need fancy pages. I bought perennial flower seeds for winter sowing. Can't wait to get them in the ground. Best prices I've found on the web, and I've looked.

I also love the descriptions of the plants. No hype-and personal experience (or lack of) is related honestly. Sooo refreshing in this world of hucksterism.

Fantastic experience. Nice personal touch. Great germination. Could not be happier and will use Remy's company every year. I almost hate to add to the avalanche of positive reviews, because I'd like to keep this well kept secret to myself.

I placed an order for Agastache foeniculum, Agastache foeniculum 'Golden Jubilee', and Agastache rupestris ‘Apache Sunset’. I received those and a bonus Agastache a few days later.

I just received my third order from The Sample Seed Shop. Remy has a large selection of both uncommon and common annuals and perennials at very low prices and with reasonable shipping charges. She has expanded her selection of vegetables, too.

The service was fantastic. I had put in two seperate orders and they caught that, verified that they were both my orders and then refunded the shipping for the second order. Most people I've worked with would not have gone the extra mile. They have earned a very loyal customer in me.

Have ordered several times over the last couple of months after reading all the positive reviews here on DG. Each time I've had a positive experience, with the number of seeds per packet far exceeding the "official" number listed, free packets included with each order, and pricing being very reasonable for everything on the site. Remy also answers questions quickly and in a very friendly manner. I'm just getting around to starting to plant everything I've ordered (spending way too much time browsing on the website), but I'm sure germination rates will be great as per everyone else's experience. Highly recommend.

I was very happy with my experience. She answered questions I had quickly, and they had some of my favourite cultivars which I had been searching for. It took me a while to find the website, but now it's the first one I will check when looking for something.

Nice selection of seeds & excellent service. Seeds arrived within days of ordering. Very reasonable prices. Not crazy about paying shipping (I know, I'm still living in the old days...) but hers is in the moderate range & shipping charges now seem to be the rule rather than the exception. I'll update on germ rate in a few months. Overall experience very favorable, will definitely use again. Sk
