While I mostly had good germination from the order I placed in 2017, I had rather low germination on one variety of sweet corn and ZERO germination on the seedless watermelons, of which I had ordered several packets. I e-mailed the company at least four times using the e-mail address listed on their website, beginning in September, 2017, hoping for a replacement of the watermelon seeds in 2018. However, I did not receive any reply or acknowledgement whatsoever, either to accommodate me or to refuse me. I find this unacceptably rude, and will probably never order again.
Hi there! Our packets are preordered with the lowest germination rate allowed printed on them. However, we do our testing at a later date and the actual germination may be much higher! For example, a packet may say 65% and the germination on it that we received is 99%. The packets are also all packed for the growing season that we're in. After germination testing, the date is 1 year and a month out. Thank you!
It took more than 2 weeks to receive my seeds order. In addition, seeds 'n such shipped eggplant seeds with (as shown on packet) only 65% germination rate. Some tomatoes (including cherry tomato seed packets with few seeds) were labeled at 70 or 75% germination, which is much lower than Fedco, Johnny's of Jung packets I've previously puchased. The low germination rates were not noted in the catalog or online, I would've purchased elsewhere if it had been.
FYI, most tomato packets were packed May 2016 (need to be sold by 5/17), so these were produced 2 summers ago.

Ordered 5 packages of seeds from them on 12/21/16 and they were delivered on 12/22/16. The order was 100% correct. Shipping and handling for 1 day priority mail (their choice) was $2.95 on a $55 order. Well satisfied.
