Pretty quick delivery and lots of e-mails on the order status, that's great!

But the negative side is that I managed to get only half of the ordered seeds to germinate even though I claim to be experienced at growing things. The seeds that didn't start to grow look like they were collected too soon and had not matured properly.

Nicky's offered some hard to find seed and despite a bit of a pricey shipping (registered mail), the seed germinated quite well. Will order again.

I ordered 39 varieties of herbs in the spring having been impressed by the variety and having ordered a few packets in the past.
However, after trying several times to contact the company by their online procedure, firstly to enquire about wholesale, to which I have never received a reply, a further enquiry via email still no response.

So, now some months of growing the seeds, just over half have shown good results, excellent results for the ones that grew! I have now resown three times the failing species rereading and carefully following the procedure of the packets.
No response from the company, not very impressed by this after sales service. Whilst I understand some seeds may fail due to conditions, I have been growing now for forty years without such appalling results. I run a small herb business and could have spent a lot of money with this company!
Seeds might be cheap but will not be using again, now ordering from the USA!
Company representative comment on May 30, 2015:
On May 30, 2015 4:41 AM, Nicky's Nursery responded with:

We have received 3 emails from you, 1 confirming receipt of order, another requesting bulk prices to which we asked you to email variety and quantity required. The 3rd through our contact us form asking for printed packets of 10 or 25 per variety, again we replied stating that there is a minimum order for printed (colour) packets.

We have received no further emails from you regarding the printed packets or problems with seeds

I have just received my first order from Nicky's Nursery which i am very pleased to have recently discovered. The packaging of the seeds and information label are excellent as is communication and response time. From the UK to Mexico in 5 days short of a month is excellent time, especially these days. I look forward to visiting Nicky's again for seeds needs.

Ordered some seeds this month, the package arrived to Kazakhstan in about 3 weeks in perfect condition.
All seeds are all nicely packed in double packets with labels containing germination and growing instructions.
Great selection and prices, easy to order from the website.

I've ordered several times from Nicky's Nursery. All of my orders arrived quickly (please note that I live in Uruguay, South America) and in perfect condition. The seeds were perfectly packaged and had very high germination rates, which is especially good as I always ordered conifers. I'll definitely order again.Highly recommended.

Fantastic selection! Nicky's Nursery website is easy to navigate and informative. I ordered several packets of seeds in July 2005 for fall planting. I didn't purchase a phytosanitary certificate, but had no problems with all of the seeds clearing Canada customs. Customer service is excellent! Not only was my order filled quickly (and completely), I was also notified by e-mail when my order was despatched. The seeds are all well packaged and labeled. They even include free seeds with every order. Can't wait to determine what the germination rate is next year.

Excellent service. Superb packaging and labelling. Easy to order from the website. 100% germination on wave petunias and just about 100% on everything else. This will be the first place I buy next year.

Excellent service and germination rates, the catalogue on CD rom is a good idea. I shall be using them instead of the another UK company I have used for a number of years.
Other seed stores have a lot to learn to be able to compete with them on customer care and seed quality.

I have received seed from Nicky's Mail Order Seeds in 3 DAYS. Any queries and they reply very quickly and very helpful in locating seed that is not in their online catalog I even received their online catalog on CD-ROM free.
