Had to come back to say that everything that I ordered from Harris Seed has germinated and have done wonderfully where other seasoned gardners have done poorly in their gardens. I order some additional tools and am very happy with them. Will definitely use them again next season!

I have been dealing with this company since 2009 and up until April 2017, was pleased with the products and customer service. Something has changed and it has not been for the better. I placed an order in February for an April delivery for some seeds and a 2nd Mighty Midget Cherry Tree. The tree ended up on backorder until May 9th. I started calling on 4/12/17 to cancel the tree order (seeds were already received), and was told no problem, the cancellation was submitted and to expect my refund within 5 business days. I have called 4 times since with promises of a call back from the representative Gail and as well "Ryan" the credit guy via csr Michelle. I have not received one return phone call yet, nor have I received my refund, beyond my shipping refund which posted the next day after a call #3. It's now May 1, 2017 and I have gotten nowhere. I can no longer say this is a positive experience as the thrill is definitely gone. will never refer another person to this company. Extremely unprofessional and disappointing.

I ordered 2 apple trees, 5 raspberry bushes and some rhubarb in March 2010. In early April, I emailed asking when I should expect them as I was leaving town for an extended trip and needed them by April 22. Three or four days later I got an email that said they were scheduled to be shipped the week of April 26 and if there were any problem with that, I should call them. So, I called them, (it was now April 15th) and was told that they could not ship anything early. They did offer to ship a week later, but I would not be home to receive them until the end of May. No offer was made to ship part of the order or to make any other accommodation. So I canceled the order. I do not understand why they could not ship any of the things I ordered 5 days earlier. It just doesn't make sense to me. I was very disappointed.

I placed an order with this company after receiving their catalog in the mail. I ordered cherry tomatoes that cascade from a hanging basket, as well as sugar baby watermelon seeds.

This year I decided to test several companies and their vegetable seed to do my own comparisons with pricing, germination, quality, etc. When I received my four packets of seed from Harris, I was shocked to see that they were all treated seeds. If the catalog said that their seeds were treated, then this statement was very well hidden. I have not found anything on their website either. As an organic grower, it is important to me to know that I am not adding any chemicals to the garden. If I had known that these seeds were treated, I would not have ordered them.

I ordered some wave petunias this year as a surprise for the wife. we recieved a partial order of almost dead plants ,mainly because they had very little root system. The second batch of 20 had been back ordered twice due to what they said was problems with germination. out of the 20 wave petunia plants we did get, 6 survived barely and it turned out they were not waves at all they were trailing petunia's. We bought our waves from wal-mart and they have gone crazy. yes harris did credit my payment for the second batch not received.

I ordered some calla lily bulbs and some begonia plants from Harris. The bulbs came up nicely, but I was very disappointed with the plants. They were very small and even though I planted and watered them, all but one died. I don't think I'll order from them again.
