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.

Received my order within a week. Remy is very very generous with the seed and that is greatly appreciated--tomato seeds are officially 15 per pack but the ones I've counted so far are closer to 25. She has such an array of tomato seed varieties (and peppers, flowers, squash, etc.) with helpful descriptions of each one, that at $1 a package I can afford to experiment and discover. Thank you, Remy!

Excellent germination for all seeds. Thank you again, Remy!

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 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.
I had excellent germination on all of my seeds last year. The seed counts in all packs exceeded the listed count.
I would recommend The Sample Seed as a go to first seed source for any gardener .

I'm definitely going to be a repeat customer at The Sample Seed Shop. Amazing selection, wonderful prices, speedy speedy shipping, free seeds included in order, well packaged (loved the snowflake stickers on the envie), etc.... There is nothing they can do better.
I look forward to many years and many orders with The Sample Seed Shop.

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.
She suggested perfect flowers to me, and the bonus packet was an apt choice. The only thing shoppers need to know is that they may have to look up germination instructions online. I do that anyway from multiple sites to feel more sure about doing it right.
I kind of regret not getting a couple of extra packets, but I'll have to wait until next year.
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
This shop has become one of my favorite places to buy seed. She has an interesting selection and a good amount of information about the varieties she carries. Shipping has always been fast and service has always been friendly and efficient. I recommend this shop to all of my friends and family.
Remy has a diverse list of tomato seeds from cherries to large beefsteaks and in between at affordable prices. Many have been taste test verified at tomato enthusiast gatherings in her area and in Cincinnati, OH. With Paypal accepted, it doesn't get any easier to have seeds on the way in record time.

When I wrote to Remy asking about Brandywine she was honest and recommended Grosse Cotelee as a favorite over said Brandywine so I ordered it along with another, Yellow Queen. They arrived swiftly, well packaged and with a free pack of seeds for another one I haven't yet tried.

I've already received my 2nd order from The Sample Seed Shop. The first one was a trial, something I do with any new seed source. I was so pleased with my first order that I promptly made a second, much larger order with her! I received the seeds VERY quickly, they are of fantastic quality and well packaged. I've only sown a few so far but they are all germinating nicely! I'm thrilled to have a new seed source from a person that really truly loves gardening and sharing the green. Thanks Remy!!! :)

My seed order arrived today and except for a little glitch trying to order( my lack of computer-ease), it was a very fast transaction. Remy held my hand through it, thank you,Remy. The bonus seeds were ones I've wanted to try.I have nothing but praise for this company that puts so much effort into helping their customers. And the prices can't be beat!

Made out another order, this time for tomatoes and as with the other order, it arrived in a timely fashion. Also some good advice about growing them. Thank you for the extra seeds and the advise. On January 23rd, 2011, aileen246 added the following:
Just couldn't resist placing another order and as before, they were here in a short time. This time it was some perennials I have always wanted to try. Will "winter sow" several of them. I appreciate the personal attention Remy gives to each order. Thank you, Remy. Everyone needs that. On March 20th, 2011, aileen246 added the following:
Started my tomato seeds, Rio Grande and Amish Paste, on the 12th and by the 16th they were sprouting. Looking forward to a good tomato season.
My seeds were shipped and 24 hours later arrived! All seeds are perfectly packaged in individual packs and sealed well. The store has so much to choose from. As I am a novice gardener I am able to order small amounts of seed to try out. All seeds are very reasonably priced. I would buy from this store again without hesitation. Excellent first experience with them.

Great prices, wonderful selection, pleasant conversation, supersonic delivery and inspired bonus seeds (since she visited my garden, Remy knew I liked hot peppers, but however did she know I'd be running out of Chard seeds next year?). I'll be back.
I've ordered many seeds on several occassions and they have always arrived quickly, and well packaged. Remy is very good at communication on receiving and sending orders and answering my inquiry about a seed that was temporarily out of stock. The seeds I've received have always been of excellent quality and good germination, and well priced as well. I highly reccommend this company, and will continue to do business with them..

One of the best "new" seed sites. Great inventory, selection, service, and price. Along with superior communication, you can't go wrong here. I will always look here first when I am purchasing seeds. HUGE tomato seed selection!

Ordered from Remy again this year. Just as pleased as ever with what I received including the fast shipping and the bonus seeds. When ordering seeds, I come here FIRST! Thank you!!!
