we have been organic farmers since 1988, and have tried a lot of seeds, and our experience with Johnny's has been superlative. At this point, we've pretty much eliminated all seed competition, and get our farm seed from Johnny's. The prices are very good, we know the sources, and can prove with their paperwork that we are using organic seed.

We had a fire and I lost ALL of my 5 year collection of vegetable and flower seeds. Late last night, I put in an order of $204 worth of seeds I needed. I paid $20 ish for overnight shipping because I'm under pressure to get the last items into the ground. TODAY, about 14 hours later, I got all but 2 of the seed packets! I've ordered from Johnny's for probably 10 years, but TODAY they actually made me get teary! Thank you Johnny's! You have a customer for LIFE!

Johnny's is GREAT! Their products are superior, and they only carry the BEST varieties. The staff is very helpful.

I have been an annual Johnny's customer since 1985. Their offerings and service has been superb in that time. In recent years I have become more concerned about the company's direction, however. Prices are skyrocketing while I'm certain seed pack contents are diminishing. Every business has a right and duty to grow but it seems the company is losing sight of the backyard gardener. When gardening costs grow to where budgeting for it becomes necessary I have to wonder whether it is worth it anymore. Last year my Johnny's order was nearly $300. The order was inflated to take advantage of free shipping offer with enough seed to carry me at least two years. Having to think about gardening this way removes the fun and makes it more like a business even in my own yard. After 40 years of gardening I can see my relationship with Johnny's and gardening coming to an end.

I like Johnny's. They ship quickly, their prices on seeds aren't ridiculous, and they make problems right immediately. With the Shiraz snow peas, they gave everyone their money back without any drama llamas running through the garden.

Another great experience with Johnny's. The shipping was lightning fast, seed packs were well protected. Of 16 different flower varieties I'm getting in excessive of 85% germination on all but the Larkspur. But, it's only been 4 days on the Larkspur and these can take a bit longer to germinate and sprout. Thanks to everyone at Johnny's for your hard work and great seeds! It makes my job so much easier and enjoyable.

Have ordered from Johnny's for several years and have never been disappointed. Quality seeds, reliable, fast shipping.

Bought several packets of seeds, and all (except the cucumbers and kale... haven't started those yet) are making plants. Even with suboptimal germination conditions, these seeds are sprouting at close to the rates specified on the packets. Will be buying more seeds from Johnny's soon!

I ordered packets of 'Marvel of Venice' and 'Fortex' bean seeds from Johnny's and have no-o complaints. The seeds even arrived much sooner than I anticipated. ..No problem. :) ...I'm sure I will be ordering from them again in the future.

Whenever I think about vegetable gardening, Johnny's Seeds come to mind. I have not been disappointed with their seeds yet over the years I have ordered from them.

Again this year Johnny's is great at getting all the seeds to me quickly--4 days from Maine to Georgia! Can't wait to see the seeds germinate.

The seeds I ordered in the spring did very well. Made an order in early July, and received the entire order 4 days later. All the seeds germinated within 5 days! This company continues to please me! I recommend them highly!

Again, quick service from Johnny's--less than a week! Their seeds always do well. Hoping this is another good year!

Top Quality products. Excellent customer service. Prompt delivery. What more could a guy want? Well, I had questions about germinating Stevia seed as I had problems [actually 100% failures] in the past. I asked about this when I placed my order. A nice lady contacted me by phone and explained step-by-step how to properly germinate and grow Stevia. She obviously knew what she was talking about.

Service was excellent. Their seed varieties generally seem to be aimed more at farmers/ market gardeners than home gardeners (though their lettuce section is an exception and worthy of drooling over, and the tomatoes aren't bad). But they have a nice selection of organic garden products, and their seed descriptions are refreshingly free of the hype I see in many catalogs. And wonder of wonders, the seed packets I ordered were all in stock and sent promptly.

This was my 4th year ordering seeds from Johnny's. I placed my order last Tuesday and had my seeds by Saturday. Everything has had good germination rates on my past orders and their selection is hard to beat.

Just received my third order from Johnny's. Surprised me because I was expecting them to hold my order until the one item that was backordered came in, but just got everything else yesterday. I placed the order four days ago. That's speedy service in my book.

I have ordered from Johnny's Selected Seeds for many, many years. The customer service is stellar, and they consistently send a superior quality of seed, with excellent germination rates. If anyone orders from Johnny's and for any reason is not satisfied with their purchase, they should contact Johnny's customer service staff who I have found to be very helpful and will give 100 % effort to correct any problem

Ordered onion plants and potatoes from these people. They were shipped separately at the correct times for planting here in Pa. Will definately order from Johnnie's again.

So far, no problems. I got a catalog from a master gardener talk at a local garden. Seems like some of the seeds are pretty pricey. However, I'm used to buying seeds from Walmart or plants from big chain stored and I have mixed luck with them. We placed our first order this weekend and have the seeds in hand already. There were much better prices on some of their sale and internet tabs.

I think itís probably just human nature that we tend to post comments about vendors when we have a problem with them. I certainly have done so here in the past. But when I put together my list of recommended seed suppliers for a Senior Gardening posting this year, I realized that I should make a positive comment here about each of our suppliers that have performed so well over the years.

These guys are one of our main seed providers for our row crops, everything ships fast and is boxed with care.

I have ordered from Johnny's for around 7 years. I farm 10 acres of row crops to sell at farmer's market and buy large quantities of seed. I have always received satisfactory service from them. Johnny's process and ship quickly orders quickly.

I have been ordering from Johnny's for about 2 decades. They have a unique selection of varieties. Now that I live in New England their short-season veggie strains are particularly valuable for me. The order turnaround is quick, the seed germinates well, the descriptions in the catalog are accurate. I expect to be ordering from them for the next 2 decades too.

Good descriptions of seeds, good selection of specialty equipment and books. Like their use of Youtube demonstrations.

Excellent company (especially for a northeastern based ag/seed company). Nice selection, solid germ rate and responsive & knowledgeable customer service. AND, very good bulk pricing on quite a few of the seeds they offer.

I've been ordering most of my seed from Johnny's for 13 years. Top quality seeds with consistently high germination rates; excellent selection; prompt fulfillment; friendly and efficient customer service when I've ordered on the phone; and a fast, easy-to-navigate website when I've ordered online. Great company.

I had good germination rates, packets on sale at 1$ were a great way of ''testing'' the company. The packets were a nice big size. Customer service was prompt and curteous. Shipping was a little on the high end for what I ordered, but it is international. I will reorder from Johnny's.

Over the years I have ordered many times from Johnny's. Aways with good results. They are more expensive than many other sites but have quality products and good customer service. If you want pelleted seeds I think they have the largest selection of any online company. If price is a major factor for you try Morgan County Seeds or FedCo Seeds.

I placed my first order with Johnny's on the night of Dec. 26, 2011. I was able to take advantage of some $1 sale items plus ordered things I have been looking for. I see some think the prices are higher than other places and that may be true in some cases but I figure it all averaged out in the end. The service is amazing as I received the package today, Dec. 29 and think that is pretty amazing. I will update this review once I sow the seeds this spring and summer and can comment on germination rates.

Recently ordered a good selection of seeds for fall planting (a few different varieties of kale, chamomile, zinnia, angelica, carrots, beets), as they had interesting varieties of all of those and their planting information on the website was very helpful. Plus, their printed catalog is a joy to browse, and the size of a small phone book. Good reference guide.
