I've been ordering from Pinetree for many years. Like others, I was attracted at first by the ability to order smaller amounts of seed, but I have stayed with them because of their customer service and the quality of their product.

Ordered seeds from Pinetree. All were sent to me. I like the small sixed packets so I can order fresh seed every year.

Unlike others that were shutting down orders because of covid buying this site did not. On the advice of a gardening group friend I tried them out. They had a large selection of flowers. They warned of slower then normal send out times and it only took two weeks. I ordered way early so very pleased how fast they did come. I started many of them a week ago and so far I have dahlias and millet. After soaking the globe amaranth as suggested it literally sprouted the next day. Very happy with my purchase and will purchasing again.

After many years, I just ordered some very hard to find seeds from Pinetree. I was wowed by some of the selections, a number of which are very unusual and relatively rare.
I got the loveliest email from them asking whether I had any issues. And they thought that they took a long time to fill my order (not so!) I received an email when they shipped. I received an email when they were delivered. I received a thank you.
And I just received an email that mentioned what they felt was too long a delay offering me 20% off my next order.

I just ordered unusual seeds from this great company. I really like them because the seeds are not only unusual but they are very affordable. And customer service is very attentive.

Placed first order from the latest catalog on 12/12/20 - received the order on 12/17/20, just 5 days from one end of the country to the other - very satisfied with their Customer Service. I will be reporting additional information re: germination %, plant performance, etc. as it happens.

This is the second year I have ordered from PineTree through their web address: superseeds.com. I have been very pleased with my seeds. They have filled my orders correctly, mailed them promptly and communicated via email when the shipping occurred.

I was hesitant to order seeds from Pinetree because of some recent negative reviews. I ordered my first seeds from them last fall/winter. Now that the growing season is over I'm confident placing my review. I had a great experience. I did reduce my original plans to order ~50 items from Pinetree because of the poor reviews here (got those seeds from Johnnys and The Sample Seed Shop instead - both favorites of mine). But I still got a fair number (~25 items) of seeds from Pinetree including all our seed potatoes and a number of flower seeds. Everything performed top-notch, and the wave petunias were phenomenal. I've gotten petunias from a local big box store in the past sometimes and thought I'd try starting them from seed this year. They way outperformed the purchased seedlings I've gotten in the past, probably because mine started from seed were treated well and not root-bound in those crazy six-packs you get at big box stores (I know, I know, I shouldn't be shopping for plants at those stores but sometimes I get a few annuals just to fill in a spot in the garden.....).

I have had great luck with their seeds. They are reasonable and come in the right size packets. (I can't deal with 2000 foxglove seeds!) No problems with germination at all.

Editing to add - it's June and I have growing plants for every packet of seed I ordered. I grew Rudbeckias, cucumbers, peppers and pumpkins from this order. Happy with the germination and strength of the seedlings.

Have ordered from this company for years. Don't trust ordering online because my computer skills are not great. Mail ordering works well for me. Have had no problems with germination of seeds, but I have my own potting mix that never fails...First order sent in wintertime..got message they would be late due to Maines bad weather events...If I had problems with this company, I would not reorder from them...problems haven,t happened yet.

They always have items I really want - they ship fast - the seeds are inexpensive - what is not to like? I am also gettin fancy strawberry plants in the spring - 3 pineberry, 10 june bearing, 10 everbearing - I do not want 25 plants of each - happy I spotted these. I like this company.

I've been ordering from Pinetree for seveal years and have been very pleased with their service. This year I ordered via internet and did not receive my seeds. When I called to find out what was going on, I was told that they had received my order but were unable to locate a tracking number so they would resend my order tomorrow rather than spend time trying to figure out what happened to my order.

I placed an order on the phone on 1-26-15 for seeds. The person on the phone was very nice. I received an email when the seeds were shipped and they gave me a tracking number so I could see where my package was. I received the seeds Feb. 2, 2015. I have one item on back order. If they had told me that on the telephone I would have ordered it else where. I really liked the prices in their catalog and I think the order shipped very quickly.

I have ordered from PineTree many times over the last 20 years and never been disappointed. Their selection has even improved over the years. Small quantities of seed at a fair price, and quick service.

I used to order from Pinetree for many years when I had a small company. I had good germination rates and very good service. If you are looking for smaller package sizes this is a great company.

Made my seed and tuber order on-line in December, had a little difficulty with the website so had to call but my problem was solved promptly and courteously. Seeds arrived in a week or so, the one pkt that was no longer available credited back to my card. Potatoes and ramps arrived this spring at perfect planting time. No fuss, no muss - just good product and service. Thank you Pinetree!

I have ordered from this company for the past 5 years, and been pleased with what I got. This year, there was a problem with items getting lost in the mail, so I had the opportunity to experience their customer service, which was excellent. They are shipping replacement items, and dealing with the postal service. This is very much better treatment than I have received under similar circumstances from other companies. Thanks, Pinetree!

I had a very positive first experience with Pinetree. I found their prices & postage very reasonable, and their service level is first rate. Packaging & the necessary Canadian customs declarations were completed perfectly.

When I was a kid I requested my first catalog from Pinetree after seeing a tiny advertisement they had in one of my grandmother's organic gardening magazines. Reading their catalog was always exciting for me. I remember giving my mom my allowance money to write checks for my orders. One of the first things I grew was "Connecticut Field" pumpkin. That was 20 years ago.

I have been ordering seeds and supplies from Pinetree for many years. There have been occasional germination issues, but no more so than from much more expensive vendors. Service, selection and pricing have always brought me back.

Ordered online on January 11, 2011 and had my seeds on January 14, 2011. Fastest turnaround I have had. The seeds always germinate well for me, either in my greenhouse or directly sown.

Seed order mailed out the day I ordered. Ordered the forgotten seeds the next day and asked that they be added to the first order to save shipping costs. That's when I found out how efficient they had been. They shipped my second order free. What a great company.

Ordered 30 different types of seeds from Pinetree for my summer 2012 garden, and this garden was my best so far. I LOVE Pinetree seeds. I've ordered from them in the past, and they definately deserve a "Top 5" rating for all-around value, and the germination and performance are both top shelf. I'll be ordering from them again for my 2013 garden.

On January 1st, 2011, suzy_qu3 changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:
Spring of 2009 was apparently very busy for them as it took forever to get my seeds. I called and they were very friendly. I did get my seeds in time - no damage done.
This past year 2010 is a deal breaker. I had come to suspect that there were germination issues, but always passed it off as my poor soil or technique or better yet - blame it on the kids. IN 2010 I got NOT ONE stinking pumpkin or gourd to grow. One cucumber vine sprouted and this is the second year in a row. In the past, with Pinetree seeds, I have grown more cukes than I know what to do with, Tomatoes and peppers in the greenhouse were OK, but I think by now I should get better results that what I got. The cabbage tribe did fine, flowers, not so much. Greens are always good. Any time I get a "mix" of something, it's not much a mix as it's mostly one variety, with one or two others in there somewhere. Other products I received promptly and in good condition.
I may come back to this company, but this year I'm going to try something else after 5 or 6 years spending $75 - $100 with Pinetree.
On January 5th, 2011, suzy_qu3 changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:
I upgraded my rating for now because of the nice little surprise I found in my mailbox. Pinetree sent me 5 new seed packets to replace the ones I complained about in my previous comment. It had a nice personal note included from the owner. I have to give them credit. To be perfectly honest, they have always been good to me and I have enjoyed their products in the past. I just can't ignore some possible germination issues.
I will try some seeds from different suppliers this year and see if I notice a difference. Also, I will give these free seeds a chance and see what happens. If I have better luck, I will upgrade my rating.
On November 26th, 2012, suzy_qu3 changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:
I have ordered various seeds since my last rating and have not any any further issues. Must have been a bad year.
