This was my first time to order from Willhite Seed Co. and I was very pleased with my order. The price was good, seeds were packaged well and shipped quickly. The germination rate was excellent and the plants seedlings are very strong and healthy. Their website also contains a lot of helpful information.

This is my first time ordering from them. My order was correct and sent quickly.
My only complaint: I was sent a pkg of seeds labeled 'substandard'. I called cust serv and was told they will send me another pk of seeds.
When I get those seeds- and if they are good seed- then I will upgrade my rating.
On August 22nd, 2006, berrygirl changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
Update: Wilhite came thru! They were so nice and very generous. Sent me a lot of seed to replace the original bad seeds.

I have purchased watermelon and Muskmelon seed from Willhite since the late 60's when it was the Willhite Melon Seed Company. They still have the best selection of melon varieties in one place of anyone. They are gradually dropping the older varieties and replacing them with hybrids but still have a great selection. In recent years they have extended thier offering of vegetable seeds. Service has always been prompt and courteous.
I ordered onion plants from them back in February and received confirmation of my order (and a charge was made to my credit card). Around the 3rd week in March, I called and asked that my onions be sent right away. They agreed to fax my request to the shipper. On April 8, I sent an email telling them that I had received no onions and that I was concerned because the last recommended planting date for onions in my area is April 10. I never got a response. I called again on April 15 (2nd long distant call) and again they said they would contact the shipper. I asked them to call me and let me know when the onions would ship and that I wanted them ASAP. They never called. After a 3rd long distance call today, I was finally told that the onions had shipped back on March 19. They said they reshipped on 4/16. I think in the future, I'll pay extra to have my plants shipped in a manner that is trackable (these were shipped parcel post).

I have found Willhite Seed Inc. to be very economical in prices for items like sweet corn, lima beans and melons[their specialty]. I had a cultural inquiry that was answered by their top expert. I give them a pat on the back.
