I wish I would have read these reviews before placing an order with Reimer Seeds. I very nearly gave them a negative rating, but there are enough positives I think to justify bumping up to a neutral. For those who want the short of it, the TL:DR is that they will do their best to fulfill your order, but you can expect to wait an unreasonably long time to get it.

The good:

They were able to fulfill all of my order, including some of the rare/popular varieties which other websites were out of stock of (this is one of the reasons I ordered with them to begin with because all of my regular go-to seed companies were all out of stock or didn't carry the variety I was looking for).

A couple of the seed packets had a generous amount of extra seed, which is always appreciated.

They were responsive to emails and they were very friendly and apologetic in explaining the delays in fulfilling and shipping my order.

The shipping was fast (thank heavens!). They shipped it out from the East coast on Wednesday, May 13, 2020, and I received it in Utah on Saturday, May 16, 2020.

Now for the Bad:

The website is a bit clunky to navigate through. For example, if you want to see all their tomato varieties you are instead brought to a page with a listing of nearly 80 different categories of tomatoes to look through. And a single tomato variety could appear in multiple categories, so if you're trying to make sure not to order a duplicate variety you have to be aware of that. Sure, you could go through their alphabetical list, but again this requires navigating back and forth through dozens of pages. Why can't they just have a single page listing every variety like most other websites do?

They do not clearly list up front that there is a one month long wait for order fulfillment. They don't have it on the front page. It's not mentioned in their Covid-19 update banner. You won't find it in their FAQ. The only place it is mentioned is when you go to check out and then they'll tell you when they try to get you to pay for expedited services. I suspect if people knew it would take over a month for them to fulfill your order (and who knows if they'll even be out of stock by then?) then they would go elsewhere for their seeds.

The popups and advertisements pushing for me to pay extra for expedited services was bothersome and should have been my first red flag that something wasn't right. It actually kinda seemed like it was designed purposely to make them more money at the expense of the customer - "hey look, you can either pay us an extra $20 to get your order fulfilled in a timely manner (what other stores do already at no cost), or you'll just have to sit and wait up to 14 days (actually much longer!) for us to be bothered to get around to even looking at your order" seems to be the message they're sending.

Unreasonably and excessively long wait time for order fulfillment (also, poor communication skills)! I placed my order on April 10, 2020 and at that time I believe they said it would take 3-12 business days to fulfill the order. I was fine with that as I wasn't in too big of a hurry to get my order. Then upon receipt of payment they sent me an email saying it could take 3-14 business days. Fair enough, it was only an extra two days - no biggie. That time came and went without any notification whatever from the company about shipping my items. I patiently waited several more days, but I was starting to get nervous. By May 5th I was really starting to get concerned and so I looked at reviews of Reimer's Seeds to see if I had been swindled, and that's when I saw all the horrible reviews here and elsewhere. It seems my experience was not unique. I then placed an order with a different company in case I never got my order. I also sent them an email explaining that I had been waiting nearly a month now for my order and it still hadn't shown as shipped on their website, so I was wanting a status update. They very promptly (within 30 minutes) sent me a reply apologizing on the delay. The email was friendly enough, but also came across slightly dismissive (half a page of excuses on why they were backlogged and I should be grateful that they were still taking orders because lots of other seed stores had closed up shop due to Covid-19) and even accusatory (you should have paid the extra for expedited services!). They then told me that my order was now scheduled to be fulfilled the following day on May 6th, but to wait until Friday to reach out to them again if I hadn't gotten notification of shipping by that time. Of course that never happened. The other company, in spite of the Covid-19 problems, was able to not only fulfill my order but shipped it and I had it in hand by that Friday - within a week of placing my order! - even though I still hadn't heard from Reimer's. I reached out to them again on Monday the 11th - a full month after I had originally placed the order - for a status update. They again apologized and said it would be filled the next day, but to wait until Wednesday evening to contact them again if it hadn't shipped by then (-_-). Wednesday came and I checked all throughout the day for any notification. By the end of the day, just as I was about to write them an email I finally got the notification that my order was fulfilled and awaiting shipment. About time! It only took them 23 business days, longer than a month, to do so! I finally got my order from them just today, May 16, 2020. I think the biggest frustration with all of this is that they never once reached out to me to say "hey, we're sorry, but things are being delayed and it's taking longer than expected to fulfill your order" or anything. I had to reach out to them every single time to find out what was going on with the order and then even though they tried (pretended?) to be friendly they actually came across somewhat dismissively - spending more time making excuses than taking ownership of the problem and fixing it. Not what I would expect from a professional who cared about their customers.

Stingy on the seeds. I mentioned in the positive section that there were a couple packets which included more seed than they had listed on the packet. However, this was not the norm and I suspect it may have been because some of the seed in those packets were clearly not viable or highly suspect (showed signs of damage) and so they threw in a few extra just to be sure. Most ever single packet had exactly 20 seeds - the amount they listed - or maybe one or two extra. Most every other company that I have ordered from usually include several additional seed than what is listed, whether to be nice or to account for poor germination rate. Not Reimer's. Come on, seeds are cheap and your strict adherence to seed count comes across as stingy and not favorable to the customer.

I can't check viability. A lot of people on here and elsewhere have complained about very poor germination rates and also mislabeled seed. Unfortunately, because they took so long to fulfill my order and ship it to me, I had to go ahead and plant other things to ensure I had a harvest this year. This means I really don't have the space and/or time anymore to plant any of the Reimer seeds I got out this year to ensure a harvest. This also means I'll likely have to wait until next year to find out if they're actually viable or even the right plants. If they're not any good then I'm out $50 because it'll be way past the time available to file a complaint or rectify the situation.

Look, if you can't keep up with demand and it takes you over a month to fulfill your orders then you need to take a cue from other companies and either start restricting the number of orders you accept, hire on additional help, or shut down completely until you can get caught up. Promising to have orders fulfilled within a certain timeframe, and then breaking those promises time and again shows a lack of integrity. It's poor business practice (especially in a market that is so time sensitive for the customers) to not fulfill orders in a timely manner or communicate openly and honestly about additional delays.

In the end, hopefully other people will come across these reviews before they choose whether or not to do business with Reimer Seeds. While my experience with them wasn't entirely bad, it also wasn't entirely good. Know what you're getting into before you buy from them, and if you do decide to, realize that it can take much longer than you expect to see your order. Caveat Emptor.

Monday, 3/30/2020 – Placed order
Tuesday, 3/31/2020 – Credit card charged
Friday, 4/10/2020 – Emailed Reimer to ask for an ETA. I understood Covid-19 was slowing seed companies and their FAQ said estimated warehouse time was “3-14 business days”, but expected to hear something if I was charged so quickly.
Saturday, 4/11/2020 – Reimer responded to apologize for the delay and said my order would ship that week (4/13 – 4/17)
Sunday, 4/19/2020 – Emailed Reimer to see if shipping the next day as 14 business days had passed as well as their confirmation to ship the previous week.
Sunday, 4/19/2020 – Reimer responded 5 minutes later and said “Your order will be filled this weekend and shipped Monday”
Tuesday, 4/21/2020 – Emailed Reimer saying it looks like it wasn’t shipped as they stated.
Thursday, 4/23/2020 – Emailed Reimer again saying I will have my credit card company cancel payment if no shipping confirmation.
Thursday, 4/23/2020 – Reimer responded in under an hour with a shipping number but shows label created but not dropped off at USPS.
Friday, 4/24/2020 – I waited until almost 9pm to email Reimer again asking when they will take my order to USPS.
Saturday, 4/25/2020 – Order is in transit and should arrive by Tuesday, 4/28/2020.

While I understand Covid-19 is increasing orders and slowing things down, I don’t appreciate being billed the day after placing my order and dragging out shipping beyond policy time as well as when was promised. I ordered seeds from 3 other places at the same time as Reimer who delivered far sooner and didn’t require contacting. I see they just updated the shipping time under FAQ to “3-21 business days’, and if you look under Terms and Conditions it adds, “but it can be a week longer because of the high number of orders this season”. If you decide to order from them I recommend ONLY if you cannot find what you want or a substitute anywhere else and you’re fine with not getting your seeds for 4-6 weeks.

Terms and Conditions also includes, “We only sell only to those who speak and understand the English language!” Ouch! I presume they had communication errors due to language barriers but is this the way to handle it?

The good news is I’ve had 90% germination rate with the 5 strains I ordered. It will be some time until I can conclude the varieties are as promised but so far so good. Thankfully I didn’t experience the rudeness some experienced either. The shipping delay is a toss-up, not their fault but they weren’t getting my order out as they claimed after I reached out. Charging my credit card the day after I ordered but over 3 weeks before they shipped is NOT cool. The only reason I didn’t call my credit card company to cancel was the risk of the new order(s) taking just as long.

I think if Reimer reconsidered their credit charging issue it would improve relations with potential customers. Maybe that’s why they weren’t rude to me. I was planning to grade them “negative” but based on others’ reviews being worse they fall slightly into “neutral”.

So I'm a 2nd year veggie gardener and this year was the first year I ordered seeds online... I was pretty novice at researching the viable seed companies on the net.. before researching I had ordered some Count Dracula pepper seeds from Riemer Seeds... at this point it's almost the end of the season and I wanted a cool indoor pepper since I have the artificial lighting to do so. Anyway, about two to three days after ordering it finally hit to see if there were any comments or reviews about the company. Sure enough, all I saw were NEGITIVE reviews about poor germination rates, wrong seeds shipped and poor customer service... uh oh... not good... so I suck it up and pray for the best. Upon first notice of the seeds when they arrived about 6 business days after ordering, they looked a bit darker and discolored than normal pepper seeds. They looked more tanish-brown color than a white/creamish brown... nervously I of course I sow anyway. About 8 days after planting 4 seeds, 1 has sprouted! Woo! Anyway, since that one has sprouted my anxiety has decreased a little bit but still waiting on the rest to pop.. not to worried about it though because I only need one :) There is still a chance I got the wrong seeds that were labeled Count Dracula, but I won't know that for a little longer lol. So as of this moment, my rating is neutral. If things go well, I will bump it up to positive. If things don't go well.... then I guess I'll fall in the norm of every other person who has ordered from Reimers...

I ordered my seeds & received them faster than expected using standard shipping. I ordered 1 packet each of Juliet, 4th of July, Amish Paste & Mortgage. The germination rates were drastically different, the Juliet & 4th of July had about a 90% rate, however the Amish Paste & Mortgage Lifters came in at about 10-15%. I was able to get sufficient germination to plant my small tomato garden and those of a few family members. Still am a little disappointed that I didn't get as many heirloom plants as I wanted. Wonder if it is hybrids vs. heirlooms, a friend I share with had the same experience. I will say one thing that is no reflection on Reimers, I found the 4th of July's were actually very sour.

Posted on January 18, 2014, updated January 22, 2014
Morning of Friday, January 17, 2014, I placed an order of 5 packs of vegetable seeds. Paid via VISA because the PayPal option would not take. Hmmmm..... PayPal is my preferred method as it offers the strongest protection against fraudalent companies, those who turn their nose up at good customer service and SATISFACTION. 30 minutes later I forgot a pak of seeds so when I went back for an UPDATE to add the pack of seeds I ended up with TWO orders and two charges to VISA as indicated via email. The processing timing of my order was for regular "snail" service, NOT "expedited" (which costs more). I am in no hurry, it's the dead of winter here.

Smelling something fishy and worried that they'd hit me twice I emailed them to cancel the order(s) that afternoon at 2:51 p.m., in plenty of time to accommodate me before shipping it out next week. Today, 24 hours later, Saturday January 18, 2014 at 11:19 a.m. (when supposedly they're closed) I get this email that my order has shipped, this against their Terms and Conditions -shipping policy - "Non-Expedited Orders take an average of 3-10 business days (not including Saturdays and Sundays) to leave our warehouse, but it can be a week longer because of the high number of orders this season." Right......

I get it and should have known, they can have it both shipping VERY quickly they pulled a fast one on me with the charges, against their very own policy no less - "Once the order is shipped, you can't cancel the order, nor can you refuse shipment. You can only cancel an order before it is shipped!" Again, I tried promptly to cancel the order via email, their ONLY method of communication. ( the SightMax option was mysteriously "down".)

These guys are really good at their scammer fun and games! I'll will take this matter further if need be. It's not that I need the's the principle of right and wrong. I don't like to be hurt and I don't wish it on anyone either. You've been warned!

I will edit my rating if they come to their senses and do right by me.

I have placed multiple orders with Reimer Seeds in the last 2 years. The quantities are small and the prices are high, but that is up front, not a suprise, my choice to pay more and get everything from one vendor in one shipment. (tomato, peppers, broccoli, onions, cucumbers, melons, corn) Have had good germination rates (5 of 6 ish). I did order a pouch of regular leaf Brandywine seeds but got potato leaf plants from the seeds in the pouch, figured they might invoice me for the difference if I mentioned it. Spreading my orders around more these days.

I ordered Striped Toga Eggplant from Reimer Seeds. The product description did not say that this was an ornamental. After the seed arrived, I looked at other sites for growing information and learned that this eggplant is very bitter and it was not recommended for consumption.

I sent Reimers an email through their contact us link asking to return the seed and to get something edible instead. I received no response. I did find out that they do not do returns or refunds. I tried to post negative feedback on their site only to have my comment censored. They review all comments and only post the favorable ones.

I would not have ordered this seed if I had known that it was an ornamental. Since Reimers neglected to furnish this information, I feel that they have an obligation to exchange the seed. I certainly will not buy from this company again. This was my first order from Riemers, and it will be my last.

Tried calling the phone number given in another post. It has been disconnected. This company uses the US Mail to send their seed. The dishonest business practices constitute mail fraud. If you are dissatisfied with Reimer Seed, file a complaint with the Post Office. Mail Fraud is a criminal offence.

I changed my rating to neutral because it appears that Reimers refunded $2.50 to my PayPal account. I did not receive any notice that the refund would be or had been made, but I found it today when I went to the PayPal site to file a complaint about Reimer Seeds. There was a balance equal to the cost of the eggplant.

Like others, I also had a rather rude response to my question about a back order -- "Read your receipt" etc. At the time, I had not received a receipt. I was responding to an emailed shipping notice that indicated that I was being charged for the full order, although one item was not on the shipping list.

I do think that it is odd that a tiny envelope should cost so much to ship, and that one should be asked to pay extra to "move to the top". It kind of suggests that if enough people pay the extra charge, my three packets of seed might not be shipped for several months or more. What happened to "Thank you sir, next customer please"? Should we expect McDonald's to start dealing out cold burgers to those who don't pay extra for fast service?

The seeds came quickly. Germination was adequate, with the exception of Long Island Cheese Squash. None of the seeds germinated, although squash and pumpkins from other sources planted in the same soil are doing fine. As for the other Reimer plants, they did not mature as rapidly as those grown from seeds that I received from other sources. I had my soil tested for general vegetable growing by Penn State, and followed their recommendations for soil amendment before the planting season started.

I probably will not order again, mostly because of the the shipping costs and policies and the rather off putting response that I received to a civil inquiry. This alone made me leery.

I thought I had ordered ornamental pepper seeds from this company early enough in August to have nice plants by Christmas. I say, "I thought," because when I emailed them two weeks later about the expected delivery date, their return email told me that no order had been sent. Upon checking a printed copy of the order I had made, I had not noticed a line at the bottom of the order in very fine print that had to be checked, i.e. "I agree to the terms and conditions of sale. View terms and conditions of sale." Another page on the web site gave details about how long it would take to process and ship the order. If I had carefully read that information, I would not have tried to place an order because it seemed to be an extra lengthy time period unless I paid extra. No charge had been placed on my credit card. Although I like the choices of seeds offered, I probably will not try ordering from this company again.

So far not so good.
I placed an order for $65 worth of seeds at 1 am on the 7th. of February.
by the 13th of February, I had not heard anything from them, so I logged into the web site to check the status of my Order, and it said that the order has been paid for and not shipped (they received the payment on the 7th of February), so I sent an email asking for a Status Update. (I Including all the information from my Paypal Invoice/receipt, to help them find my order).

I received a reply very quickly telling me to Log into my account and to check the status of my order that way.

So I replied that I had checked that, and that it said that they had received my Money, but not yet shipped my order. and that I was wondering when my order might get shipped. I also mentioned that two other seed orders that I had placed with other seed merchants on the same day, had all ready been delivered.

I again received a very prompt response stating this

"Please read the Terms & Conditions of Sale and HELP page!
You did not add Expedited Service to the order.
The answers of your questions can be found in the Terms & Conditions of Sale and HELP page."

This was all they wrote in the email.

So I replied that I was not trying to be Nasty, and I had read the Terms and Conditions of Sale, and was just wondering when my Order was going to ship,
That I understood that according to their web site "It could take 7 to 10 business to receive the order during the busiest time of year.” (and yes the word was missing on their web site) (and Yes I let them know that the word was missing on their web site.

I then went on to say that if they had just told me that my order was still being processed and should be shipped by the end of the week, I would have been perfectly happy.

I have not received a replay to this email, however the entire "Terms & Conditions of Sale" page on their web site has been updated and corrected, but the status of my Order has not changed.

They have time to promptly reply to my emails and fix errors on the web site, but they do not have time to process my Order.

Now their web site says "Non-Expedited Orders take an average of 2-7 business days to leave our warehouse, and 3 to 7 business days for delivery time for First Class Parcel."

SO I will continue to wait untill the 19th of this month before I say anything else because with the worst case scenario of counting business days, the 19th would be the 7th Business day after I placed my order on the 7th of February.

I would actually be less concerned IF I was not treated so impolitely when I corresponded with them.

I am also concerned because recently other people have placed orders with Reimer, and have received their orders in Less than a Week from them.

Well, I found this site today and read through all the posts on Reimer Seeds. I thought I would post my comments.

First, I thought their turn around for getting my order out was really good.

This was my first time ordering any kind of seed from anyone. My wife and I went to Peru where we had some of their Aji Amarillo peppers (long and bright orange when ripe). Reimer was the only place I could find that sold the seeds here in the US. Being my first seed order ever I ordered small. I ordered two packs of Aji seeds and as a bonus got one pack of Thai Dragon seeds for free. Of the Aji seeds, I followed the instructions and went to Home Depot and bought the the potting soil they recommended and used the seed started things. (Little round disks you add water to). It appeared that from all the plants that came up every seed but maybe one or two germinated, which I eventaully transplanted outside. We got a lot of peppers before they succumbed to Hurricane Katrina. (Beleive it or not all of the pepper plants in the yard came back but 1 this spring !!) OK, now I planted the Thai seeds doing it the same way. Its been over three weeks and not a single seed has sprouted. I never examined the seeds for spots or holes etc as other users described here since I am totally new to this and didnt know to look for that. So I dont know. One good experience and one bad so far.

As far as shipping rates. Yeah mine was the same. The USPS package listed the price as one thing and I paid more for "shipping". Then there was also the handling fee.

Here are my questions. I want to keep growing peppers etc. Wanted to grow the Thai's in pots. Do any of you have another company that you "recommend" that I can order more seeds from???? One that all of you have had good luck with. Also I will explore this site more, but like a good forum that I can post questions to regarding growing, tending to, etc etc pepper plants once they start. Any recommendations on that??

Thanks a lot.

They say the customer is always right, which explains why my review is 'neutral' instead of positive. The members of this site are the customer, and you know best.

Of the cultivars I ordered from Reimers, I had a 100% germination rate. In no way, shape or form did I follow ANY of the instructions from Reimers on how to properly germ seeds. My family have been farmers for seven consecutive long has Reimer been in business?

Seeds were placed in moist (not soaking wet) paper towels. Placed in darkness (@70 deg. F) for 1 week. Seeds were removed from paper towels and placed into pre-soaked rockwool cubes. Cubes were placed in the bottom of a 5 gal bucket (from hardware store), covered with plastic wrap (my attempt to keep moisture in) and covered with thick bath towel, and placed in my closet. The bucked was heated with a heat lamp, for 12-15 hours a day (light was turned off while I was @ work). During "daytime" temp was @ 80 deg. F. During "nightime" temp was @ 65 deg. F.

I grew jalapenos (germed in 7-12 days)
habanero (germed in 11-14 days!)
*my first attempt at growing C.chinense and from what I understand, seeds popping in 2 weeks is quite good.*
cherry toms (germed in 13-20 days)
brandywine toms (germed in 8-19 days)

I grew several cultivars of each above mentioned species. The times listed are for all seeds to germinate...some cultivars took way long than others. some were quite speedy.

Anyway, I got my seeds quickly. I never had to talk to their customer service dept. I don't remember what I paid for S&H....but Im sure it was cheaper than buying a seasons worth of peppers and toms at the farmers market.

I had a good experience with Reimers. I was shocked (eariler today) to learn of others experiences with them. I guess I got lucky. To anyone considering using Reimer as a vendor, I wish you the very best of luck.
