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.

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.

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.

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.

WOW..I wish I had read reviews.. I mixed my seeds from there and another company so can't tell who's was whose..but I did notice that the germination was low but could not pinpoint the company.. Hopefully they get better. Like others, I thought it looked like a good site.. I am keeping my own seeds this year..

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 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.

I ordered and paid via Paypal on February 8. Today is the 23rd and my order is still not shipped. My email to them last week was not responded to. I just sent another telling them if I don't get an update I am getting my money back. I hope to get a response soon. After reading many of these reviews, I am worried about the germination rate of these seeds. I have used Pepper Joe's the last three years with great success but they don't have the variety that Reimer has.

Moving to neutral. They responded today and shipped today. Luckily I received a professional and courteous response unlike many of the ones mentioned in the other posts. They did say they were slammed with orders and were closed one day. That's all I need is an update. Nobody dies if the seeds take a while to get here. It's all about setting expectations!

My frends bought pepper seeds from REIMER.
On May 14th, 2008, farmervolk changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:
I would like to change raiting to natural.
because my frend? is a half wit and a crooked disposition.
she always tells all sorts of lies, poor old woman.
it proved that she used old seed,
we can not blame the seeds company.

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

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.

I have purchased from Reimer Seeds for 3 consecutive years and enjoyed the varieties. They always gave free packs of seeds with each order.
Editor's Note: This comment originated from the same IP address as used by "reimerseeds." It is the policy of the Watchdog that users cannot create multiple identities in order to inflate a company's rating, nor can a company pose as its own customer in order to leave feedback. The rating, originally positive, was changed from positive to neutral so that it would not affect the overall rating given by customers.
