I think it’s probably just human nature that we tend to post comments about vendors when we have a problem with them. I certainly have done so here in the past. But when I put together my list of recommended seed suppliers for a Senior Gardening posting this year, I realized that I should make a positive comment here about each of our suppliers that have performed so well over the years.

We’ve used Twilley Seeds as one of our two or three main garden seed suppliers for over twenty years. When we were growing sweet corn for commercial sales, they were our primary provider of the then new sh2 supersweet varieties. We still use their sweet corn varieties almost exclusively.

Over the years, we’ve had issues with seed quality just once and received a prompt and courteous refund, although absent the explanation I requested about how we were shipped crushed seed. But that was just one time out of twentysome years of quality seed shipments.

A few weeks ago, I had reason to call them, inquiring about GMO seed. The customer service representative politely informed me Twilley’s does not sell any GMO seed (what I wanted to hear).


On November 17th, 2018, SeniorGardening changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

After years of successfully using seed from Twilley Seeds, we've come to a parting of the ways. I first noticed some really bad, old seed they sold us, only to be reinforced by a reader of Senior Gardening by his results from their old seed. Twilley's presient admitted they had problems with their germination testing. They made good on my claim, but stiffed my gardening friend.

I'd advise against ordering from Twilley until they come clean about selling old seed that doesn't meet germination standards.

This company has a HUGE listing of seed with many that are
new disease resistant hybrids that not listed elsewhere. Handling charge is rather expensive for small orders. Very pleasant customer services
