Ordered from Interstate Nursery last year and Farmers Seed this year and have found out they are towned by the same company. Received dead plants that were very small and of poor quality to begin with and this company does not make any effort whatsoever to stand behind their products.

You know, I could tell you my sad story about dealing with Farmer Seed but it would just be more of what is already well reported so instead let me say this: Don't buy anything from them. It is all true. They don't ship orders out on time. You have to write them to cancel an order and then they use delaying tacts or whatever means to avoid cancelling. They do charge your credit card before they ship the order. You have to move heaven and earth to get them to credit your account for items you either never recieve or have cancelled. DO NOT DEAL WITH THEM!
Myself: I'm contacting the Minnesota Dept of Agriculture and the AG's office and filing a complaint. I urge anyone else who has been ripped off by this group to do the same. This company should be investigated and will be if there are enough complaints filed.

I ordered over $200 from this company: pine trees, glads, xmas cactus, strawberries, seeds and a lot more. Items arrived separately, and one package they claimed they shipped never even arrived! So had to wait 2 more months to get it. Finally, after I received everything, I would say only 10% out of the whole order survived the first month. Demanded a replacement, received after 6 months of battling. The company claimed I did not ship them 1/3 of shipping labels, whereas the other 2 out of 3 they received. The replacement request was all in one envelope and they managed to lose one label and tried to deny it. Out of the replaced items only half survived, and now I am sending a third replacement request. Technically, from the first order I only managed to grow 55% of all items ordered. It was my first experience with them and I will never order from them again.

I ordered $187.00 from Farmer's Seed. While I understand that it can snow in SD as late as May, my plants all arrived in mid June. All trees that I ordered were completely dried out. Only one strawberry plant survived. I didn't think it was possible to kill daylilies, but they were literally mush. I do have to say that the majority of roses I received were ok and are doing well. Only one never produced leaves. I am sending them my letter today, because I did try to plant everything to see if they would survive. I am a lawyer. I am sending the letter on my letterhead. I will let you know if they give me the same run around as everyone else.

Dear Friends,
I posted after about 3/4 of my 300.00 order came back defective from Farmer Seed & Nursery. I wrote to them with my shipping labels and I sent them certified mail. I therefore have a signed card that they received my complaint. I was missing one shipping label. They sent my letter back with my shipping labels and told me I had to send the one label. I wrote them back that I could not find the one label and I understood that I could not have those plants replaced. Again I sent that letter certified mail and I have a card acknowledging they received it. I called last week to see when I could expect my replacement plants and they had no record of either of my letters. I sent them an e-mail where I gave them until this Friday to contact me or I was filing mail fraud charges against them. You can go to // and file a complaint online. In addition, I am an attorney and am considering bringing a class action against them. If you are interested, please contact me at my e-mail address: [email protected].

Earlier this year I ordered from Burgess Seed , Four Seasons, and Farmer Seed not realizing at the time that they were all companies operating under the Plantron, Inc name. I too received the bright green plastic bags with the tiny, weak and undersized nursery stock items thrown in. I also received the small plastic bags in the bottom of the larger green bag that contained barely recognizeable nursery stock due to the heavy overgrowth of mold covering them. In fact, since my orders were so large, I had difficulty in even tabulating to make sure everything had been sent due to the fact that many of the items in the small plastic bags had been reduced to MOLDY SLUDGE, unrecognizeable and smelling putrid. I now find myself with useless company "Replacement Certificates" in hand; why would I want to reorder again? Gardners, BE WARNED!

In 2004 I ordered several things from this company. I had ordered what they called a "Biblical Fig" (that should have been a clue to me, but I was a newbie). It arrived with the top broken off, and was thinner than a pencil. It did not do very well and has winterkilled this year as I think it wasn't big enough to survive despite my wrapping. When I called them to get the actual name of the fig last year,I got no response-nobody seemed to know. The 2 blueberries I bought from them also died. The items were shipped in a plastic bag and weren't in good shape. I didn't bother to contact them as the cost of my order was so small, but I wish I had known about this forum before. Needless to say I will never deal with this company again.

Well, this company has a horrible negative rating for a reason! BEWARE and read this BEFORE YOU CANCEL YOUR ORDER!

I placed a $200 order with this company before I realized how horrible they were. I called to cancel my order less than 3 days after placing the order.

Of course, they charged my card rather than cancelling the order and now I am on the other end fighting to dispute the charge! Of course they told me the order was cancelled.

My advice....Call your credit card first and tell them to deny any charges from Farmer's Seed and Nursery BEFORE you call to cancel your order! These people charge you as soon as they think you are going to run away.

Update 3/21/05:
Still trying to get my money back. Farmer's Seed has told me that to cancel the order they require a "written letter sent by mail", I sent them a certified letter and insisted on a receipt. I did get the receipt and called them after I noticed a $25 credit applied to my card (Note: this is not the full credit of $200). They informed me that they could not find my letter, but did not argue that it was sent. They tell me that my order should be cancelled, but that I will only receive the refund once the product is "caught" in shipping. the way, they cannot give a cancelation number either! Once each shipment is stopped, I will get a refund for that ammount! Can you believe this?!?! Most other reputable companies only charge when they ship each individual shipment. Farmer's seed charges in full and then refunds back only if it is caught.

I have received plants from some of the other Plantron companies. I did not expect much, so I was not disappointed. I may have tried purchasing some lower dollar items from them in the future, but after this mess I will not order from any Plantron company again. There are plenty of other nurseries out there.

THIS COMPANY IS DEPLORABLE. I had done business with the House of Wesley name about 4 years ago when I bought 12 blue spruce, some willows, and other varieties. The shipment was received in poor condition, and everything died except two of the blue spruce which still have not exceeded a height of much more than a foot. I nursed these items from the day I received them, but they were clearly not of good stock.

Recently, I purchased some goods from Farmer Seed, not knowing that they were affiliated. I soon recognized the connection from this website (thanks!), and promptly tried to cancel the order. It became clear from this simple transaction that this is not a reputable company.

First of all, I called 800-544-8200 and spoke with a rep who asked about the order and then said, "It may have started processing, let me check". Since this is January, I could not figure out what they could have started on. Shipments should not start until March.

The rep returned to the line and said that she would notify the processing department to cancel the order. I asked for a confirmation number, and then things got very confusing. The rep asked what number did I call, and when I told her, she made a comment indicating that I had called some other company, but they could handle transactions for Farmer Seed. Huh? She had just said that she cancelled my order, but obviously had not even looked it up! I advised her that this was one of the very reasons I was canceling - the service was reportedly abominable.

She went on to say that *now* I would have to send a cancellation order in writing. I asked about a fax number to send the cancellation. The response was they did not accept faxes. All during the conversation she constantly defended the reputation of the Plantron companies, even though at the beginning she said that she didn't even work for them!

I had about enough of the BS from this rep, so I politely asked to speak with a supervisor, or someone who could help with this transaction. To my amazement, the rep countered that she did not have a supervisor and the only good I could do was to mail them a cancellation notice. Eventually, after repeatedly pressing her, she said that her supervisor's name was Grace Avery, but she was not going to let me talk to her. Simply unbelievable.

I implore anyone reading this to steer very clear of any of these companies, and ask that you warn anyone you can via review sites or word of mouth that these are companies of highly questionable integrity and honesty.

On January 18th, 2005, bbc added the following:

This company just keeps getting more reprehensible! I notified Farmer Seed to cancel my order with e-mail, a phone call to customer service, a fax, AND a certified letter. Yet, instead of cancelling the order, they went ahead and charged my credit card, even though they have nothing to ship for months! This is perhaps the most dishonest behavior I've ever experienced from a catalog/internet merchant.

I have disputed the charge with my cc company, and also filed a complaint with the Illinois Better Business Bureau. I sincerely hope that this company gets shut down. With the experiences I have had, I will now make an extra effort to see that it happens.

I can only say one thing about Farmer's and the other companies associated with this group...

It's "ok" to buy inexpensive plants IF you realize ahead of time that you *aren't* getting anything even similar to what's shown in the picture. IF it's "ok" with you to receive a "start" of a that a rootless TWIG or a rotten SPROUT...then order from Farmer's...IF you have a gambler's attitude.

My experience with them is much the same as most others have expressed with one exception. I was SO disappointed with what I received that I was TOO embarrassed to ask for replacements or a refund.

Let's just say I paid a LOT for this "Pay your money and take YOUR chances."

I wish I'd known about Garden Watchdog before I ordered from Farmer's Seed. If I'd known that they were basically the same as Burgess, I would have RUN! I got a pathetic order from Burgess two or three years ago, and NEVER would order from them again. This experience w/ Farmer's Seed was the very same. Everything was totally dried up and teensy tiny. I'd ordered two Harry Lauder's Walking Sticks and eight Christmas ferns. Some of the ferns were 1/2" in kidding...and totally dried up. The "Sticks" were maybe 10" including the roots, and NO sign of life. Why can't Plantron be shut down??? They are thieves...period. I'm not bothering to try to return anything at this point. I'm just learning from this experience, and I'm VERY grateful that my order was less than forty bucks.

Last spring (2002), I ordered many things from Farmer's - a tamarisk, two berries, crown vetch, erica carnea, boxwood, etc.

Everything from my huge order arrived in one green plastic envelope that had been sent through the US Mail~!! The plants were jumbled together, and all were soaking wet gobs of goo.

I sent it all back. The replacements took about 2 or 3 months to arrive, and they all arrived in the condidition of the original shipment.

I didn't bother fighting for a refund or returning the plants again. I just realized this is not a company to deal with ever again and I tell as many people as I can about my poor experience with this company.

Unfortunatly I did not come here before I ordered from farmer seed co, they used to have a good name but that has changed for the worse. They were the first order I sent in and the last to get here. The seed packets were all there but the amount was sad to say very short, only 5 seeds in most packets. Of course it is probably my fault, buyer beware no seed count was listed for the packets. Thankfully there is always Johnnys, last order in first recieved

I ordered over $300 of grapes and kiwis. The first arrival was in late May, already late for planting in my region. Of my order, I recieved 2 kiwis, and 6 grape vines. Those plants were tiny and their roots were rotting. I called Customer Service about the hundreds of dollars of missing items, and she insisted that there was nothing she could do. My complaint had to be filed in writing, and it would take 6-8 weeks to be processed. Her supervisor also said there was nothing else she could do. So, I wrote the letter. Mid-late July, the rest of the order came. It was hot and dry, but I planted them anyway. All of the kiwis are dead, and half of the grapes are dead. Some of the grapes they sent weren't even the ones I ordered. Never order from Plantron!

This comment was originaly placed by me under Burgess but as you can see your are not dealing with Farmers you are dealing with PLANTRON, INC. We had ordered from Farmers in Faribault MN for many years with very good results BEFORE they became a division of Plantron.

I ordered nursery stock from this company a couple of years ago in late winter. I ordered from them because of their very attractive pricing. The nursery stock finaly arrived near the end of June on a 95 degree day in the middle of a heat wave. It looked dead in the packing. Took it out and planted it and tried to keep it watered, but out of 100 hedge and 50 forsythia only 2 forsythia survived. Decided never to order from them again. BUT BEWARE! BURGESS IS ONLY ONE NAME THIS COMPANY USES! Later I ordered from Farmers Seed and Nursery. 50 Stawberry plants plus some rasberry plants (12). I Recieved 1 bundle of 25 (22 plants actually in the bundle). When I called them with the mistake they said ok they would take care of it. They sent 25 more plants, and BILLED MY CREDIT CARD AGAIN! This company is a division of a company named PLANTRON, INC. Go check out their rating. Save your self some grief!

I have an outstanding order for seeds and I found two of the identical items (same item number) listed in Burgess Seed & Plant catalog. As many know, Burgess and Farmer Seed are both part of Plantron. I e-mailed the company and asked to get the lower price on these two identical items and was told I would have to order these from Burgess. I think this is very poor customer service. Be advised, if you do business with either of these two outfits, compare the items in each catalog so that you get the best deal.

Ordered through their website, which turned out to be Direct Gardening.

The trees I ordered, although cheap, were also dead. When I reported this, they said that they were dormant and give them six weeks.

I did get the dogwood bushes to sprout leaves. These were also twigs - no bush about them.

Most of the merchandise was amazingly puny. I didn't pursue a refund, just figured I'd learned my lesson. Won't order from them again.

I ordered plants like strawberries and other berries,kiwi,pawpaw,supplies. I waited 5 weeks and still nothing came. I called them and they said everything was backordered. I canceled the order right then. I dont like it how they have different companies in the same town and they are all owned by the same owner. They make you buy from every one so they can get profit. Some things are only availiable in Farmers or Burgess. Plus you have to pay more shipping charges of 6.95. Hear my advice.

When I asked about buying pea sheller now, I was told there was a 4-5 week waiting period to have it shipped.

My recent experience with Farmer's Seed and Nursery was amazing. I used to do business with them before they sold out to Plantron, so I was quite surprised when my order, placed in January, was immediately billed to my credit card, even though the merchandise wouldn't ship until late April. I'm not even sure it is legal to do that. I called and complained and asked them to reverse the charge until the merchandise shipped, but they said they couldn't do that. I then said to just cancel my order, as I couldn't get anywhere with the so-called customer service girl. She said the only way I could cancel my order was in writing! I ordered online, so I sent two emails to the company with my order number asking them to cancel it and credit my card back. I never heard anything. After notifying the credit card company, my charge got reversed in March, and I thought everything was cool. THEN, the plants arrived anyway, weeks too early, and one tree was dead. Farmer's charged my credit card AGAIN, without my authorization, and I got a letter from them with no phone number or email address, just a mailing address, stating they saw I had my card charged-back, but they shipped and recharged me as they didn't want me to be disappointed!! I had my credit card company charge them back AGAIN, as they made no effort to contact me to find out if I wanted the stuff after all, as they had my phone #, email address, and mailing address. Talk about a terrible way to run a business. Avoid all Plantron companies.

June 30, 2001: I call the customer service to inform you of the death of all the trees, and I ask for a full refund. The operator hangs up on me.

(Where are their records regarding credit card orders?). This company's guarantee is not worth the paper it is printed on. My advice is not to do business with them at all and be sure to let everyone in your gardening class aware of their lack of concern.

I received an order this spring that arrived in very poor condition. Most of the perennials were rotten, moldy or dead upon arrival. all of the shrubs were dead. The total of over $100 produced two very tiny living plants. To date no satisfaction of claim.

Also an experience with Farmers Seed was not good . I ordered twice from them both times I received package 2 of 2. Were packages 1 ever shipped?? I double it since it has been 2 months since the first packages arrived. Even the Post Office isn't that slow. and if they are can you imagine what the plants will look like.
