This is a great eco-friendly company! These use recycled magazines to package all of their seed packages. If you plan to garden and want to be kind to the environment, use them! I love their seeds!

Posted on April 22, 2021, updated April 26, 2021 Ordered seed for 2 vegetables (3 varieties of 1 and 2 of the other) plus 1 companion crop (6 total). Germination rates for the first vegetable varities were 50%, 40% and 10%. Seed from the 2nd vegetable and companion crop failed to germinate. Germination rates for seed purchased from other sources was at least 84%. Monetary loss for the seed purchases is one thing but time lost for the failed germination is worst. Contacted the company weeks ago but have yet received a reply. Also noticed that they do not provide user reviews for their products.


On April 26th, 2021, omrdg changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following: Seeds from 1 vegetable were slower to germinate than those purchased from another source but did finally emerge in satisfactory numbers. Seed from the second vegetable are reported to germinate at a higher temperture than the other varities also purchased from another source. Higher temperature may also be required for the companion crop. Still would like a response from the company.

Ordered Potato starts in February. . They sent a tracking number that says label printed on April 2 and it is April 19th and still nothing. I contacted them and they said they were shipping them soon. Still nothing....... Disappointed as potatoes here in PA need to be planted when the weather is cooler. My advice to them is to not sell what they cannot deliver in a reasonable amount of time. I cancelled the order today, we'll see how that goes.....

Of the seven seed companies I bought from this year, only Urban Farmers' seeds had unacceptable germination. Some packets failed to germinate a single seed.

I received a partial order in January with one item marked ďback orderedĒ. I immediately contacted the company to ask approximately when my order would be completed. I called the phone number on their website and used their online contact form. I received no response. I tried to check my order status using their website and that failed. I tried to reset my password thinking that I may have made a mistake. That failed. After repeated attempts to contact this outfit by phone and email over the last two months I finally contacted my credit card company and disputed the unfulfilled portion of my order. They do not provide customer support and will not respond to phone calls and emails. Save your time and money and shop elsewhere.

I haven't received my complete shipment and communication has been poor about when and if I will receive the rest. Order #328445. I ordered (1/3/2021) off Urban Farmer's website. I received emails stating that my package would be arriving, with a tracking number and an invoice, which listed everything but my bare roots. My package arrived in a timely manner (1/9/2021). Unfortunately, 10 items were missing which were listed as having shipped. Since those items included potting soil as well as seeds and plant labels, I sent customer service an email (1/9/2021) asking if my order was split and inquiring about my bare roots which weren't listed on the packing invoice. After 2 weeks and no reply, I called and left a voicemail. On 1/22/2021 Ashton emailed me back. On 1/25/2021 Ashton confirmed that they were shipping the missing items via FedEx "Yes we have shipped the missing items today! The horseradish roots were a preorder item and will start shipping in March based on the zone you live in! Again, sorry about the missing items and you should be getting them via FedEx this week!" It's now 2/7/2021 and have have received neither tracking number nor my 10 missing items.

"I started a hydroponic garden ~1.5 years ago with herbs, lettuce, peppers, and tomatoes. Urban Farmer was recommended to me and they have gone beyond expectations! With 25-30 different seeds ordered, I've had 100% germination and plant growth rate. Even during the beginning of the pandemic when their order volume soared and stock was depleted, they clearly communicated updates. They even refunded an order and substituted a tomato seed order without be prompted. Their customer service is always very responsive and polite. I keep returning for all my gardening needs. In fact for the first time I ordered garlic for the winter and both blackberry & raspberry plants for Spring. Highly recommend! A definite gem in the seed business!"

I have ordered from Urban Farmer three separate times. I have received my seeds in a timely manner each time, within a week. Two of the orders during COVID delay and they still came through, which is impressive, from my perspective. The seeds are good quality and in the amount promised. I order vegetable seeds from UF. The website search function gets funky at times, but if I use the dropdown function, I can find what I am looking for. The prices are very good and the shipping costs reasonable.

First, they had exactly what I was looking for (specialty carrot seeds). Second, they had a bunch of other flower seeds that I wanted at great prices. Third, I forgot to apply my discount code but emailed them right away and they took care if it on their end. Forth, everything arrived lickity split (very fast). Amazing!! Will be ordering again and again.

I got a late start on my garden this year and ordered several packs of vegetable seeds from Urban Farmers. Most of them sprouted within a few days and have been doing great. I will definitely be ordering from Urban Farmers for the next growing season for sure, but much earlier this time. :-)

Have you ever been so taken aback by dumb question that you needed a moment to physically recover from the shock of the question... Well, I often ask this questions, and the lady I spoke to didn't even make me feel like a dummy. The staff was very helpful and tolerated my newbie questions admirably. Additionally, I had a shipping notification within minutes of placing my order online. Fast, polite, knowledgeable, easy service. 10/10 would recommend.

I live in central Florida so my planting times are more in the late summer to fall time frame. I have ordered from Urban Farmer previously and have found the ordering very easy to understand. All of the seeds I have planted from Urban Farmer have germinated successfully and produced great crops. I am very pleased with my success using their seeds.

I see many people here complaining about the lag in shipping time. I too found the shipping to be slower than Iíd expect, but a customer service person answered my email the day I sent it. Thereís a friggin pandemic on people, cut them a break. More importantly ó the seeds I received from them have germinated at their reported rates with the exception of some herbs which I believe I mishandled. Quality of the greens and lettuce Iíve grown so far this season has been excellent, and my tomato plants are thriving. Iím looking forward to fruit a little down the road.

My story is as most that have ordered in the last few months. They got their payment, sent me a tracking number, and that is as far as it has gone. As the others, no return emails, no phone service. I did use paypal, and if they don't get a move on, I will go through them to request a refund. order date- 5/20/2020 1:36 PM Today is June 3rd.....Nuttin....Not a word...

I placed my order, knowing there was going to be a covid delay but it took 39 days to get my order. I tried calling but they were not answering their phone. I emailed and got and answer saying there was still a delayed. I asked when I could expect my order and they never answered the email. On their website it said my order was completed on the 5th of June and they generated a tracking number but it was not shipped until May 16. When I did finally get my seeds, my coral bell seeds did not have the numbers in the packs that the package claimed. I took the time to count each seed. Will not order from again.

Ordered seeds on 6 Apr 2020. OK, COVID-19 delay accepted. Order status updated to "Completed" on 28 Apr 2020. Shipped by USPS, supposedly. Tracking info supplied. When tracked, says tracking number created but no package receipt by USPS. That was 3+ days ago. Attempted to contact Urban Farmer Seeds. Phone number removed and email contact form deleted from website. Tried phone number from Google search. Got company but VM not accepting messages. They say they reachable, but clearly not. I'm going to give them the weekend and then start CC fraud investigation. Not Happy.

So I ordered my seedlings on March 23, 2020, it said that my seeds would ship according to my zone. Well, the shipping months in which they were supposed to ship have passed and one should be on the way. My shipping shows in progress and I've tried to reach out to customer service, call, and email. Well, there is no email or number i can even use to reach out. I've been scammed I can feel it! Something just doesn't feel right! I went to BBB and filled to a scammer report and a bunch of other people have reported them too! I know ill never get my money back from them but i think i can call my bank and do something about the money!

Love the variety of different vegetables you offer. I ordered some green peppers, red peppers, and carrots. I didn't notice the shipping delay( my bad). Since I already started my other vegetables indoors I ended up grabbing some at a box store. I'll have extra for next year which is a positive. I would recommend to family and friends.

Excellent selection: I really liked that all the varieties that I wanted was on your website and costs of seed and shipping were very good. Shipping was very prompt. The only negative was some of the seed packets were a little light of seed. The seed amounts were clearly laid out upfront on the website, so it was not a surprise. But you can get 20 seeds in a packet for $3.00 or 600+ seeds in a ounce pack for $7.00. 20 seeds is too few and what am I going to do with 600 seeds? Seems like there should be a middle ground with a packet of maybe 50 seeds. Other than that, everything was perfect. Thanx

I have ordered from you twice now, and will probably order more when the Spring season arrives. I have always been pleased with your products and the services your website provides. The last time I ordered I received an email when the package shipped. This time I did not. That was a nice touch that I would have enjoyed receiving again. That would be my only minor complaint. The sipping was fast and the seeds I started are already sprouting. I have recommended your products to many of my friends.

Their ordering system had a problem but they fixed it quickly and were pleasant to talk to. The order came fast and packaged well.

On Jun 30, 2019, raebots (1 reviews) from Indianapolis, IN

As soon as I received my seeds for spring planting, everything went well. I am an amateur, but germination rates seem to be as expected and the plants are growing happily. The company was very slow to ship at first, though, and I had to contact customer service repeatedly, which made me very nervous (even though the person I emailed was helpful and friendly). Since the seeds (and bareroot strawberries) have proved viable, I now think itís a case of disorganization or lack of seasonal employees, not malice. I ordered wildflowers later and they shipped straightaway. Thus, my advice is to order a little early during busy seasons, though I donít know for sure if that will help. Overall, Iíd be happy to order again from them.

I have been buying seed and plants from Uf for well over a year now. I am a small scale farm that only spends around $200-$500/mo through them. The seeds have germinated well and I feel that these seeds have been as advertised. (very good experience) The only good contact to UF is through the phone. Emails do not work if you need information, complaints, help.... you will not get a reply. (My biggest complaint!) (negative experience) example: I wanted to ask them to seal their bulk seed bags better. Tried twice on their forum/email. I still have a 5 lbs of rutabaga seed pickup on this last months order floating around with my other seed packets in a card board box while taped up by USPS. ok, two things to complain about so only a neutral rating. I still order seeds and fruits through them.
