This was my first order with They had great quantities for great prices.
It took about two weeks for the order to arrive.
I received the correct items, plus a packet of 7,700 Gloriosa Daisy (rudbeckia) seeds for free.
I have not tested germination yet.
Happy with this company so far.

I would highly recommend this seed company for the following reasons.I have over a period of about 4 years ordered seeds from Cheap seeds and all my orders have arrived without any problems.
Best of all the germination rate of their seeds has been of very high quality i would say excellent.
Even a few years later -I hadnt used their seeds then tried them and had good results.
I have also sent in a few email questions to JEFF who I believe is the owner and he always responded quickly to my emails.
Cheap seeds is the type of company u want to do business with for the above reasons.

I ordered some pink Four o'Clocks and wow... they germinated fine and I just wish I had lived somewhere a little less dry at the time so that they could have thrived!

Got 100 seeds for $3.80 which is absolutely fantastic... I love how the prices don't make me wince when I look at them. Shipping was very quick. All in all: I'm buying from Jeff again!

I ordered several different seeds from this company. A few germinated well, but many did not. In March, I was asked by to send order numbers so I could receive a refund. However, despite several emails sent by me, I never received an email back or a refund.

I ordered 5 packs of seeds from here last July, I was very impressed with the fast shipping, and the free package of seeds. I Winter Sowed several of the seeds and they are doing very well. I ordered from them before getting into Dave's garden. I wanted to order more Creeping Thyme from him, and thought I'd check out the reviews on here. I'm happy to see I picked a decent seeds source before being a "dave" member :0)

I paid for seeds Mar 14 and received an e-mail Mar 15 saying seeds were shipped. Well I gave them 10 days then e-mailed - no reply - waited a few more days - e-mailed - no reply - after four e-mails still no reply. Of course PayPal doesn't do anything because I did not purchase through e-bay. I just lost $25.00 plus the amount of time to reorder - through a different company and plant. I am very disappointed.

At first I had a negative experience with this company... but now I am very happy. My story: I ordered several seeds from the website and at checkout, I noticed that (1) item was charged incorrectly than what it was advertised for. Also - I signed up for the email newsletter because they offered 10% off your order if you signed up. Well - at checkout I could NOT apply the 10% off and (1) seed packet was still priced wrong. But I paid for everything as is and then emailed the company to ask if they would discount my order due to the pricing issues. The owner, Jeff, emailed me back within 20 minutes to apologize about the pricing discrepancy and promised to fix everything. I just received my order (2 days later) which was extremely fast shipping - especially since I live in Texas and he ships from Minnesota - and Jeff had fixed the pricing issues with my order, no questions asked. *** VERY GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE - THANK YOU!*

I just received my seed order, I just couldn't wait 'til January. They all look extremely healthy. I ordered Creeping thyme seeds, 9,250 of them and one is missing (just kidding). I did however receive free poppy seeds. They did make a little glitch of sending me pansy seeds instead of Mostly Pink Sweet William seeds, but I am positive that they will remedy this situation shortly. Overall, I am very please with this company.

My last experience with was both good and bad. The price and amount of seeds were excellent. The shipping was free and reasonably fast. However, I ordered Cosmos Dazzler seeds and received Cosmos Sensation instead. And I was expecting a free packet of Gloriosa Daisy seeds as it says on the front page but got Red Corn Poppy instead. I love that it was free, but I would have liked more warning as to what I was getting. You see, I only garden, currently, in red and yellow colors. Both Gloriosa Daisy and Cosmos Dazzler have beautiful blooms of both red and yellow. Red Corn Poppy is solid red and Cosmos Sensation is pale pink. I can't really use them. :( Again, wonderful price and a wonderful amount of seeds. If you aren't restricted by what you can grow, I'm sure you'll be happy with whatever they send you.

I wish I had ordered bunches of seeds when I had the chance...there have been 0 listings on Jeff's website for a while. Anybody know what happened? I was so looking forward to ordering several thousand wildflower seeds for some of the 'empty' parts of our property.

I ordered several packets of seed in January. I sowed or planted them all according to directions. I had no germination whatsoever in any of the flowerbeds from these seeds.

I am an experienced gardener, and had seeds from other companies which I planted in the same places as the seeds from CheapSeeds. I had good results with all of those seeds.

I contacted the company but haven't heard back.

I'm surprised at this since all the other comments are so positive.

This is my 2nd year dealing with this company. They have impeccable service, the seeds germinated well, and I am very pleased with all of the varieties that I purchased. The seeds are an incredible value. I'm thankful this company exists. I've never found another seed vendor quite like it.

Very happy with this first seed order, recommended by DG's. I have no idea what I'm going to do with 30,000 poppy seeds except to share with co-workers. Seed quantities are unreal for the price. Thanks Jeff.

This is my favorite source for seeds. Jeff is quick to fulfill orders, and always happy to answer questions. Every type of seed I've bought from this site has grown beautifully, and the name of the site is no joke- the prices are unbelievably low.

All I can say is AWESOME!!!! You get more than you pay for in seeds quantity, also great service. I wish that he carried more seeds to choose from, (like everything I am looking for). I also wish that more companies were like this. If you have not bought from him give it a try. Keep up the great service.....

I love Cheap Seeds. I have talked to the owner many times and he will answer any questions that you have and is very helpful. Cheap Seeds is such a great place to get your seeds. The best thing is that it's free shipping so your'e not paying anything extra. And when you see the number of seeds in one packet, it's true! You get a lot of seeds for the price unlike the tiny little seeds in the pack at the store. I have nothing but good things to say about Cheap Seeds! You will really like what you get!

Back in April, I purchased a bulk package of 9,000 Chicory Flower Seed's for only $2.99 and within DAYS, they were germinating! The shipping was also extremely fast. This is a great company and I plan to order from them again in the future.Thanks Jeff!

Jeff, compared to some of the companies out there you're GREAT!.
I've been dealing with Cheap Seeds for a number of years and haven't had a bad batch of seeds yet.

Keep up the good work!

Jeff contacted me immediately to let me know when my seeds would be shipped. I got the seeds in only three days! Also the prices are amazing. I got approx. 14,000 yarrow seeds for $2.50! I will definitely be ordering again. Thank you Jeff!
On January 19th, 2008, Chickadee12 added the following:

I sowed a pinch of the seeds the day I got them. Now, three days later, some have already started to germinate! If the yarrow seeds keep growing at this rate, I'll be up to my knees in seedlings and young plants well before I can get them into the garden!

great prices, great seeds/germination and packaging, fast mail service as well-3 days to NYC!
also when I had placed a 2nd order that seemed delayed, they did not hesistate to send another in response to my email, and that replacement arrived in a few days as well. The 2nd order wasn't actually delayed it just took 9 days instead of the 3 and I sent the 'delayed order' back easily, no problems! [Sometimes mail to NYC can be screwy]
Will be doing more biz in fall and spring!!

I ordered three packs of perennial seeds directly from this company and received them in about a week, no postage. 1000's of seeds at a cheap price (hence, the company name). Planted about 20 days ago. Very high germination rate already. Very satisfied. It's up to me and Mom nature now.

I just received my order today. Clearly marked packages, indicating germination and tons of seeds for the money. The seeds appear healthy. I purchased 1/4 lb. of wildflower mix for 11.00 as well as Cosmo's, Poppys and others for very little money. Customer Service was excellent. I was a little disapointed in how long it took to receive the seeds from the time of placing the order on E-Bay. Approximately 10 days, but well worth the wait when you compare the number of seeds (1000's) for the price.

This company sells a selection of 80 different seeds @ $2.50 per pack for a large number of seeds in each pack (eg: 300 Hollyhock, 150 sunflower, 500-1500 zinnias per pack (depends on variety)). I bought 5 packs on eBay and they arrived within 3 days, nicely labelled with purity and germination rates for the seeds. Also customer service was good, my e-mail query was answered within just a few hours.
