Fortgot to add: The Sample Seed Shop always adds a free mystery "Bonus" seed packet with every order. And she is mindful of sending a "Bonus Seed Packet" that is in line with what type of seeds you order.

Ordered a second time from them because I\\\\\\\'m going to be going tomato crazy this year. =D Nearly all of the seeds have germinated, which includes vegetable, herb and flowers. I\\\\\\\'m very pleased with the prices as well.

4th year of purchasing from Sample Seed Shop and still very pleased with this company. =)

I love the personal touches Remy includes with all of my orders. Very appreciated. The germination rates are outstanding with her seeds. I ordered a bunch of perennials to start during the winter for more pollinators/butterflies.

Still purchasing great quality seeds that grow into vigorous plants from this wonderful shop. ^_^

Still one of my favorite shops to purchase seeds from. I can ask her questions on facebook and she'll have a reply in quick time. I had asked her about some Korean Perilla and she made it available in her store! I also appreciate she carries OSSI-Pledged seeds, which means the seeds can't be patentable. One can freely grow/trade/hybridize seeds as long as they don't try to close the rights off to everyone else with a patent. Free the seeds! =)

Have been ordering from Sample Seed Shop for several years now and have been very pleased with the variety of seed, great germination and friendly service. Love being able to order smaller amounts of seed at a reasonable price. This is the first place I check when selecting tomato and other seeds for my garden.

Just received my second order. Such a nice variety of seeds to choose from and a bonus packet is always enclosed with seeds suited for your growing zone. Seeds from the last order grew beautifully and I am sure I will be well pleased with the germination rate this year as well.
On June 5th, 2015, Gully added the following:
Received two orders for this planting season. As always, the germination rate is fantastic. The detailed web site helps you to decide what will be a good fit for your garden and the bonus seeds you get with your order are always a treat!

This was my first time ordering. Everything was shipped quickly without issues. Customer service is the best I've seen when ordering seeds. I will definitely order again and highly recommend her site to friends. You won't be disappointed!

This is by far my favorite place to order seeds from. With other seed catalogues, I tend to wait for a good sale before I order and then shipping seems to take forever. The Sample Seed Shop ALWAYS has great prices and fast shipping. I love the quality of the seeds and have never had a problem with germination. I received my most recent order in the mail yesterday (love the cheerfully decorated package) and started planting the new seeds right away. As usual, there was a generous amount of seeds in each seed packet. And the bonus pack went along great with the "theme" of the other seeds I ordered. It's a pleasure to order from this company and I have no doubt I'll continue to do so.

I received my 2nd order the other day and as I was with the first order, I am very happy with the service and selection that Remy provides. The seeds from the first batch two weeks ago are all coming along nicely. I canít wait until we are past the last frost times so I can get them outside and show them off!

11/20/13 update, after around 4 days from sowing my phacelia campanularia (california bluebell) already germinate!!!! Proof that my positive comment was not wrong
On February 9th, 2015, LanfrancoLeo added the following:
I come back to Remy to order some more fun variety that I did not tried last year. Since the result of last year (very good quality of seed, both in terms of germinability and consistency with the cultivar that I ordered), I mad a much bigger order....This year I started ultra-early with my seeds and I can already tell the performance of Remy`s seed for the 2015 season in a single word: FANTASTIC.
All the species that I planted so far germinate rapidly, even in not perfect condition (my basement have appropriate light setting but temperature is around 50s)....I could not be happier with Remy...she gave like usual Bonus seeds that are always appreciated!!I
To be precise , below I reported list of plants that I sow and that few days later (reported) happily germinated:
Centaurea moschata 'Imperialis' (germination: 5 days)
Matthiola incana 'Sugar and Spice (germination: 4-6 days)
Ipomoea nil 'Mount Fuji Mix' (germination: 4 days at 60 degree)
Agastache foeniculum (Anise Hyssop) (germination: 8days)
Zinnia 'Burpeeana Giants Mix'(germination: 5 days at 60 degree)
Lime Basil (germination 8-12 days)
Lemon Mint/Balm (Monarda citriodora) (germination 10 days)
Celeriac 'Giant Prague' (Root Celery) (germination 12 days)
I will update the species that I will plant later this month and the ones that I winter sow.....

I ordered a bunch of seeds for winter sowing and wasvery pleased with selection and my experience once I ordered. Excellent communication.....they let me know when seeds were beingmailed out (I had seeds in apprx one week). I liked the 'personal touches' as well (hand stamped seed envelopes) and would rate my experience a '10' and order again.

I was looking for a vining summer squash, and found The Sample Seed Shop through Google. I ordered, and have since planted the Tromboncino squash, as well as a new (for me) kind of bean, Tennessee Greasy Mix.

nicely organized website, order was processed quickly, seeds are packaged nicely, very reasonably priced, great to be able to get small packs of lots of different kinds of seeds. This is a family operation and you can feel the personal touch in packing and shipping. I've planted most of my seeds, and all of them are sprouted and well on their way. Can't wait to get them in the ground!

I've ordered from this company two times, and have been impressed both times with the fast turnaround time (which is notable due to the winter weather that was happening at the time), the labeling and packaging of the seeds, as well as the emails the owner sent out due to abnormally severe winter weather hijinks keeping me informed. I'll definitely buy from here again!

I have been using The Sample Seed shop for over a year now and have been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the seeds, the germination rates and the superb customer service. The seeds are sold in small 'sample' sizes that usually run you from $1-2. I have had very good luck regarding the seeds sprouting and reaching maturity. You also always receive a free sample of at random (?) when you order from them. I can't say enough about this place...it is awesome-possum.

I ordered almost $100 worth of seeds here this winter. At her inexpensive prices, that's quite a few packets of seed. This was my first order and it was easy and accurate. No problems. Everything arrived as it should. Although it is too early to report much more yet, so far I can happily report that her seeds are fresh... and the gerrmination rate is EXCELLENT... actually better I would say than many of the big megabrand companies.

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.

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.
