We have been ordering seeds (about 3-5 times per year) from Reimer's since 2008.

We live on the central coast of California. Our gardening experience began in 2007 with Home Depot veggies. The following year we started from seed. We grow vegetables all year long. Our buying experience and growing success is in part due to Reimer's. Never had a problem with any substitutions, bad germination rates, or different results than expected. The website has customer ratings for seeds, it is easy to navigate, has great descriptions, simple planting instructions and is easy to order from. The seeds will show up as ordered, well packaged and arrive quickly.

I searched the web for Big Mama and Super Sauce tomato seeds and found Reimer Seeds. I visited their site, ordered 5 seed varieties and then happened to find the "Scoop" in Dave's Garden for Reimers. My experience was very positive. Their site was easy to navigate and purchase on secure shopping cart. The seeds were send in bubble pack USPS First class and arrived within several days of purchase - they are in Maryland and I'm in Massachusetts. The seeds were in neat packages, ample count and I have every expectation of germination this next Spring. I order lots online and grow my entire garden from seed. I sometimes wonder if the negatives posted on Dave's Garden are from novice gardeners who maybe have unrealistic expectations or maybe even lack of experience in growing from seed. My experience was very positive and I would not hesitate in ordering from Reimers Seed again.

Being a little anal, I decided to really vet this company before adding this review, since there were so many negative reviews posted.

I ordered about $35 worth of seeds, and upgraded to priority shipping. Reimer added $50 of insurance because of my upgraded shipping, something they usually charge extra for. I didnít pay for expedited order processing, because I ordered in the fall, a slow time for seed houses. The seeds arrived 3 business days later (ordered on Friday, received on Wednesday).

I counted seeds from each packet. Packets were advertised an labeled as containing either 20 or 50 seeds, depending on variety. Generally hybrid seeds of tomato and broccoli are in the 20 range, open pollinated in the 50 range. However, all seed packets contained far more seeds than advertised. Tomato/Sanibel, a hybrid, was at the low end of 60% more seeds (32 total). Chinese Cabbage/Michihili was at the high end with over 9 times the advertised amount of 50 seeds. Maybe itís because this is the end of the season, but all packets are labeled for the 2014 season.

Iíve planted 4 varieties so far, and germination is within acceptable limits. I start seeds in homemade peat-lite (4 parts peat, 3 parts vermiculite, 1 part perlite) with blood meal, bone meal, and greensand added). Seeds start inside under fluorescent lights, with bottom heat when appropriate. I find this controlled environment far superior to planting in ground in nearly all cases. This runs counter to Reimer's recommendation.

Iíll likely update this review as I complete more research.

For example, viability to me is how many seedlings survive transplant and grow into healthy plants. Anybody can place seeds in a moist paper towel and determine germination rates, but some seeds do not develop healthy cotyledons and never survive more than a week beyond simple germination. So for now, I give Reimer a positive review, based upon service and initial viability testing.

Geez! First about Dave's Garden! It took FOREVER to figure out how to register and post feedback... Gawd! Make it simpler Dave! I will be as concise and as complete as possible. I love to write, so, here goes...

I almost didn't buy from Reimer's Seeds after seeing and reading most of the negative reviews. One of the negative reviews was far too insightful in an uncomfortable way. It sounded like a personal attack and I didn't like that. Like a family member with a vendetta.

The review stated the this Reimer guy lives with his mother. How does the reviewer know this? Isn't it commendable that he is taking care of his elderly mother? Is she ill, bed-ridden? We take care of my father-in-law as he is elderly. Living with your parent and taking care of him or her would be a good thing - don't you think? Better than putting her in a nursing home because of age or illness as many people do. Perhaps that is why he doesn't have phone service. Can you imagine the phone ringing off the wall all day, upsetting your elderly family member?

If he has hired hands, perhaps they are 'special needs' hired hands... like one of my older nephews. I'm so glad that he has a job as a bagger at the grocery store - probably 'his' career for the rest of his life. It's not much, but it gives him a sense of purpose. Perhaps the Reimer's hired hands lack phone etiquette? Based off of many of the negative responses, it would seem email etiquette is lacking as well. There are many doctors, lawyers, and professors that I work with who lack etiquette. :)

Okay. Now about my two experiences with Reimer's Seeds. First, I love their website! It is bright, colourful, and my family found it a delight to navigate through. It became a family event as we chose our seeds.

And we LOVE the little characters. The Lady Bug; The Grasshopper and the Tomato; The Ant Carrying the Pepper; The Black Crow, Spider, & Pumpkin; The Ants and the Watermelon!; and the Herb Garden with the Bee! Whoever came up with these happy little icons did a great job and put a smile on my children's faces - mine, too!

It was very easy for me to find what I was looking for, along with the many items I did not know existed. To begin with, there is the left-hand column labeled 'Categories'. We can be at the Hot Peppers (my husband's favourite) and then at the bottom of the page - click on the Tomato icon and off 'I' went to Tomato Land! :)

The kids loved the Giant Pumpkins and Goose Bumps Pumpkins! It was FUN for the whole family!!! I swear we spent about an hour on that website! "Go back to this one, Mom!" and "Let's see that one now!" "Dad, look at this Cotton! Can we grow COTTON!?!" :)

Want to get back to the home page? Just click that cute little Lady Bug in the upper left corner.

My new favourite - 'Fun Things To Grow'. The Baby Eggplants and Batwing Pumpkins! Various Cottons and Bushel Gourds! The Olive Tree and Green Tea Tree! Looks like we will be making our own Green Tea... :)

Now... regarding Grampy and TOBACCO... My family is not a smoking family, yet my father-In-Law does smoke -- OUTSIDE and a good distance from the house - we made him a little shack to relax in. Grampy is now going to try growing his own tobacco and plans to save HUNDREDS of $$$ by rolling his own. ;) Looks like he will need to rent a field to grow as much as he smokes!

That reviewer also mentioned something about cold storage and possible damage to seeds. I emailed Reimer's Seeds and expressed my concerns of that reviewer's negative response prior to placing my order. This was late Autumn and I had plenty of time to order those seeds and wanted to be sure that I would have a successful experience.

He said he hardly ever responds, but since I wrote such a nice letter - he felt compelled to respond. I learned that they have ISO Containers, along with a two-story temperature-controlled building for seed storage of thousands of seeds. And, not only do they get my husband's pepper seeds from various countries, they also grow many varieties of peppers, harvest the seeds, store them, then sell, package, and send them to the customers.

Mr. Reimer wrote that it is very important that I follow the instructions and do not use peat pots or such as they can dry out the seeds and inhibit germination. He said he tested them and found it best to plant in soil. He said to follow the directions regarding the best soil to plant in and be very careful on using additives in the soil as additives can burn the plants, especially the seedlings. He said it is very important to water at the right time as watering at the wrong time of day or over-watering can hamper a successful outcome.

Starting in the greenhouse, I have found, is beneficial. I have a small one from Fred Meyer comprised of green PVC tubing and a clear/green plastic tarp-like covering with a zip door and roll-up windows for aeration. My kids often play in the green-house and that prompts discipline. :)

My purchasing experience went surprisingly well. I did not expedite my order and payed via PayPal. An easy experience for me.

I received my order six days later, and that included the long holiday weekend. So, I ordered them on Thursday and got them the following Wednesday. Had Monday not been the holiday, I would have received them on Tuesday for sure.

For my experience, I did receive all that I ordered with a few extra seeds in each packet. I also received, much to my delight, an extra bonus packet of beans that I had not ordered. It was sort of like an unexpected Christmas gift. ;) I let the kids plant them and they were joking about Jack-and-the-beanstalk!

I must admit that I purchased the only Novelty Item they have as a Christmas gift for my husband - the Chili Pepper toy that sings, "HOT, HOT, HOT! That toy is HUGE and was an even bigger hit with the kids... but they know its Dad's. :)

Approximately 90% of all the seeds I had planted germinated and did quite well. Even when we had a terrible rain/wind storm that blew all of my seedlings off of the patio table! Most miraculously survived! I just had to try to figure out what seedlings were what plants. NOT EASY!

Watermelon has never done well up here in the Puget Sound, yet 'I' had results. I made sure that the kids and I periodically turned them on the vine in the garden. Father-in-law AKA 'Grampa' helped, too! Small Sugar Babies! They fit in the fridge nicely and were sweet. I had trouble knowing when they were ripe and two were left to over-ripen on the vine. Ooops! My fault! Unfortunately, Sugar Babies are out of stock this year. I'm hoping they'll get some in before my late planting time. Up here in the Northwest, we still get frost throughout April, so May it is... some years, June...

My corn didn't do well the first year, yet that was because it rained and rained. Last year, we had plenty of sunshine and finally received longed-for HEAT! So, my corn did well. :) The kids had a fun time making a scare-crow using the dried stalks for arms and legs. We also took the remaining stalks and bundled them together to decorate the front entrance. So, those corn kernels fed us, gave the kids an artistic challenge with the scare-crows, and rendered free decorations admired by all!

Oh, the first year, I had planted the Dark Green Zucchini Squash and I had SO MUCH, 217 pounds of Zuchinni, most likely due to all of that Northwest rain, that I had to take a lot of the Zucchini over to my neighbors and in to work. They were barbequing thick slices of Zucchini on the grill - we call it Zucchini steaks! Totally awesome!

I'm not finding Veggie Tales this year and am slightly disappointed about that. Maybe Reimer's will still get them. Always fun for the little kids! I'd rather have them playing in the dirt of our small garden, out in the fresh air, than playing XBOX! There's nothing like watching the miracle of life when the seeds sprout up through the earth...

So, my two experiences have been very good. I am sorry to read about so many negative experiences and don't know what to make of it. I almost feel guilty after having favourable experiences myself. I almost didn't purchase here, yet I am now so happy that I did. The variety is amazing and makes our family's gardening experience FUN.

In closing, I do so hope that others have as good an experience as I have had, twice over. I don't know what to say other than we have enjoyed shopping as a family at the Reimer's Seeds website and have had no troubles. Then, again, we are not super gardeners, just family folk growing a garden to save on groceries for a growing family...

I personally loved everything about dealing with this company! They have the largest selection of seeds I have ever seen, their prices are good, they use Pay Pal which is a big plus, and my entire order arrived in under a week, beautifully packed and nothing missing. Every package of seeds has double or triple the amount of seeds promised. I am beyond impressed with Reimer Seeds. They are probably the only seed company I will ever use in the future. No gimmicks, just real products for a fair price. Love you guys!

I just don't understand all of these negative comments. I seriously found Reimer seeds to be the most competent of all places I have ordered from. Do you realize they have the lowest prices of all sites I looked at? They can't help what the postage rates are. That is where the high cost comes in. Have you tried to mail anything lately? The postal rates are outrageous. And people saying they didn't get very many seeds, when each packet contains double and triple of the amount you ordered. And seriously, when you let seeds sit for years before you plant them, or you just don't plant them correctly, what do you expect? Don't blame the company because you didn't follow planting guidelines. I do realize sometimes you do everything right and still have bad results. Several peoples comments were fair, from good gardeners. I am just tired of people who don't have anything better to do than sit around and complain. Get off your computer and try putting more effort in to your garden and you might get better results.

Amazed that every seed I planted from Reimer germinated. My family owned a huge pepper/tomato seed company until the 80s though & seem to have that green thumb. For peppers, it takes patience, even moisture and steady temp around 80-85. I plant mine thick in container indoors, keep in window in the sun; when have at least second set of leaves for a few weeks, transplant to larger pot, and eventually to garden. Again, amazing success.

I have purchased twice from Reimer Seeds and had a good experience. Seeds arrived promptly and germination was standard. I had a slight problem with the point system (my reimer points where deleted, but i emailed them and they responded via email quickly and credited me back). I feel bad that people have had a bad experience but it is what it is. There are too many variables in seed starting to blame the seeds or the company but customer service is a different issue.

I've been buying from these guys off-and-on for about 4 years. The seeds are hit-or-miss, but mostly a hit. They almost always throw in some extra seeds for free (a packet of 5 seeds often has 8 or 10, and sometimes they'll throw in another packet of something random you didn't even order) I've been very happy with my purchases, except for a few things:

I've bought Red Savina seeds from them 3 years in a row. The first 2 times, all of them germinated. Unfortunately, the plants died early (my fault), so I was never able to collect my own seeds from them. The 3rd year, however, not a single seed germinated.

I also bought a packet of 20 Ancho seeds, and only 1 germinated. Luckily, it grew to be a very strong and productive plant, and I was able to save lots of seeds.

Lastly, I bought a packet of 5 Naga Jolokia seeds. While all of them germinated and grew into large plants, I discovered that the chilies it produced were not what the website described. The picture showed big 3"x1" pods (how a ghost chili should look), but what grew were hundreds of tiny little cayenne-pepper-sized pods. They were still hot as hell, but definitely not the variety I thought I was ordering.

All the other seeds I've ordered (over 20 packets) have been great.

I just placed an order for lots of different seeds (including a different variety of ghost chili, the Naga Morich, as well as some other vegetables), so I'll report the results after I've got them all planted.

I believe that a company is only as good as their customer service when something goes wrong.
Fortunately, I have not had the opportunity to find out how good or bad Reimer Seeds customer service is since in both 2009 and 2010 I got my seeds promptly and accurately. This year (2010) I did pay the expedite charge and got my seeds in 2 days.
As for germination problems with their seed, I have no problems to report.
I truly feel bad for all the people who've had problems with this company. As everyone else in the world, I know the frustration that comes with dealing with bad customer service.
Additionally, I have to say that I am in no way affiliated with this company nor have I been compensated in any way for this positive review.

My Reimer story...
I was looking for some Trinidad Scorpion Seeds and googled them. Only a few websites seemed to have them and they wanted credit card numbers. The sites looks like a fifth grader made them. I got to Reimer Seeds site and noticed that they use PayPal. As an avid eBay'er, I have become familiar with PayPal. Because of past experience I also googled Reimer Seeds and found this site Dave's Garden. I read the mostly negative reviews and also took note of the expedite service that some talked about. I then figured that if I pay with PayPal, I get their (PayPal) customer service to back me up or refund my money if I never got my order. I ordered The Trinidad Scorpions, as well as some Charleston peppers plus paid for the $5 expedite service and $6.75 1st class service. It was Friday night about 10 pm. Now I also read the terms and conditions (like many of you stated) and it said that orders will be done on Mondays and a bunch of other stuff so I did not bother to check my email, or the website until Tuesday. When I checked, I was surprised to see that I had a tracking number that was posted the next day - Saturday and the seeds are on the way. Well it is Wednesday and I have them here in front of me now. I can't say that they are cheap, I don't know if they are friendly, but I am happy with the speed of the shipment and will probably buy from again, but first I will see how germination goes. That is my 2 cents - I am not associated with or have been compensated by Reimer Seeds in any way. I am now a member of this site and may get involved by adding some content in the future!

Mine was very good - I ordered 4 different kinds of peppers, which is their specialty. Got all of them within a week. Germination was 95% or so. Seed count was 12-15 per pack more than the 10 it was supposed to be.
I will still buy pepper seeds here. They have way more varieties than anywhere else

I have made two somewhat large orders with this company and both times I was statisfied. All the seeds where there that I ordered.

Good things:
Got orders right and received within 2 weeks. This company has a phenominal vegetable selection! The pepper and tomato section is HUGE. You can find all your seeds here and then some! Internet site was updated some months ago and you can make a wish list while you look.

Bad things:
Kinda pricey to be around 3-4 bucks for some 20 seeds. Some seeds are out of stock and have been for long periods.

Recommendation:
I read on this board Remier's customer service is suspect and thats a shame. With such a huge selection of seeds just buy what you can't find anywhere else from these guys. There is alot of odd and hard to find vegetable seeds on their sight.

I ordered Pink Brandywine, Brown Cherry, and Carbon Tomatoes. Also, Fish Hot Peppers. I received them within 10 days of ordering them, but I did pay the extra $5 to get to the top of list. There were more seeds than I expected in each pack and it was packaged professionally. So far I all of the tomato seeds I planted have germinated and now all have their first leaves, working on the second set. The Peppers havent come up yet but it hasnt even been 2 weeks yet and it's cold in my house.

Overall, I will order from this company again. Germaination rates are near 100% and I have never grown or had a garden before. All this talk about professional or very experienced people not being able to germinate and grow with their seeds is a bunch of Baloney.

Germination attempts are still over a month ahead of me, but I have had seeds not germinate now and then from EVERY supplier I have used over my 40 years of gardening. I don't always know what I did wrong, but it would be VERY UNFAIR for me to blame any seed seller for my occasional failures.

I just want to comment about reimerseeds. I had a comment before about this company before unfriendly customer service and made dis-belief them, because I was afraid their company is a fake company and just did card-frauding.

The company is real and they do not do card-frauding. But the customer service is still very bad. So, if you order with them, you may experience any such unpleasant treatment from reimerseeds.

By the way, I cannot give the comment about the seeds that I buy from them, because I do not try it yet.

As son as I try it and have the result, I will give the comment about the seed.

I recieved the seeds in prompt fashion and placed them in the fridge until the appropriate time for me to start them. I did not follow the directions given to me for seed starting, because I have a method that works for me and I did not feel that deviating from it would be of any great benefit to me.

I had a great germination rate from everything I started (80-90%). Any day now I should be reaping what I sowed - have plenty of green tomatoes just waiting for the sun to return so they ripen up.

I have ordered a whole bunch of seeds from Reimer and the shipping was quick and orderly. I have only started one variety as I bought them for next spring primarily. Of the one I started (Tiny Tim Tomato) I have 100% germination. Each and every last one of those seeds are popping up green parts. One must remember that temp or moisture variations in shipping can damage a seed. In fact I am thinking of not buying any more seed for a couple months because the temps here are really high and that could damage a seed sitting in a metal mail truck.

If I have germination problems with the other varieties I'll be sure to come back here and let everyone know.

well i ordered some seeds, red savina, tepin, and they also gave me a free packet of NuMex Conquistador, they shipped pretty fast. and i planted my seeds in a home made micro green house, shined 2 lamps on it. and had a pharmaceutical heat pad under it, id say about 50% of the red savinas sprouted, of the 20 some seeds they gave me, and about 6 tepins sprouted and a few numex, i only really care about the red savinas, which had a good sprouting rate. its nothing like the less than 5% i heard about, but not as good as some scotch bonnetts seeds i bought at the store. all in all not that bad, go ahead and order from then just plant the seeds properly. keep them warm, about 80 degrees, and dont use soil thats mostly peat moss.

Reimer Seeds are great! With over 1,000 peppers/chilis & 250 varieties of tomato, there's SO much choice. The seeds arrived really quickly - I'm from the UK and it took around a week PLUS they sent two free packets of pepper seeds. Germination rate is high so far (some of the hotter chilis are taking a bit longer) - I couldn't be more pleased! Can't wait till next year.....

Reimer sells small packets of seeds, like Pepper Gal. The selection is fair, and they are adding varieties all the time. I ordered on-line and received an e-mail the next morning confirming the order. They sent another e-mail when the order was completed. I received the order in about a week. The order was complete with a complimentary package of fennel seeds. Pending starting the seeds I am pleased so far.
