Great service (very quick shipping), wonderful seed germination and good selection and amounts of seeds. Prices very reasonable. Provides germination instructions. Especially applicable for those gardening in the SW US but many seeds for those in other areas. Nice selection of penstemons. I've been ordering for many years and never been disappointed.

I have been ordering from Diane's for several years now. I have had nothing short of great service. She ships quickly and charges a reasonable shipping charge.

I am very impressed with the speed and quality of the service I have receieved from Diane's Seeds. I found her site when a search for Orlaya Grandiflora seeds had me spinning my wheels as many companies were sold out or did not carry it. I was not dissapointed when less than a week later I had a healthy bag of seeds arrive in my mailbox. They actually arrived a day ahead of the projected delivery date, plus they sent me a free packet of seeds with my first order! I will keep coming back for quality seeds at a fair price, with prompt communication, shipped super quickly, & with more seeds than what I paid for. You really can't ask for better service than that.

IMO Diane's Flower Seeds definitely is deserving of the Top 5 Award. Great selection of seeds, excellent communication, lightning-fast delivery AND packaged in a bubble envelope to prevent crushing. Well-done, Diane!

I have been ordering from Dianeís Flower Seeds for 6 years at least and I was always happy with her seeds. Whenever I followed her germination instructions, I had excellent germination rates. She has many unusual plant seeds, particularly heirloom (one example: her sweet peas). Shipping is faster than any other seed company I dealt with. I will definitely go on ordering from this company.

Diane has added several more good tomatoes this year. I appreciate her descriptions and prompt shipping.
I have also ordered flower seeds which have produced very well.

Great germination and wonderful tomatoes. Brown sugar is a real winner. Exactly as described - brown and sweet. Will order again from Diane.

This is our first year ordering from Diane's Flowers (Canada), we placed 2 good size orders and both came promptly. Everything was well packed, labeled and the seed count was great for the price.

Ms. Linsley offers a high quality product with very high germination rates and great service. She has always answered my questions via e-mail in a timely and professional manner. As my small biz is growing here in NC, I'm moving more towards larger wholesale sites, but will always appreciate her offerings and patience as a novice not that many years ago. Cheers

I found Diane's Flower Seeds on Davesgarden, I was looking specifically for foxtail lily seeds, and found them here. Website is easy to navigate. Seeds arrived in the mail quickly, I'll definitely order again. Recommend.

Several years ago I was offered credit for seeds in exchange for permission to use some of my photos posted at DG and I eagerly accepted. It was a wonderful opportunity to try varieties of vegetables I may never have even heard of otherwise. Being as I have a small yard, I could not use all the seeds at once. I planted the last of them this year and still had a very good germination rate. For the next gardening season I will return as a paying customer. Thanks again for providing these wonderful heirloom seeds!!!

In 2012 I ordered tomato seeds from Diane. Had nearly 100% germination and all were "true to variety".

Fantastic selection, good prices, excellent communication. She seems like a very nice person AND she gives you a free seed packet with your order. What's not to like about that? I've ordered from her a couple of times now and even though I have no comment yet about germination rates, everything else is amazing. Plus she has varieties that you can not find anywhere else.

I've just placed another order with Diane's Flower Seeds. The selection is great, especially if you're looking for something a little hard to find or a new (to you) variety to try. The tomato selection is one of my favorites. I appreciate her insightful articles and comments on successful seed starting and saving.

I ordered a variety of tomato seeds and vegetable seeds from Diane and then quickly followed up with a second order for flower seeds to start early indoors. The tomato seeds had great germination rates, this is my second year growing tomatoes and these are great if not better than the store-bought seeds that I used last year. Also, I am over the moon about all of the heirloom varieties that she had to offer, we are a tomato loving household here. The flower seeds are germinating great as well and growing happily! My home office is the only sunny window I have and all of the little plant babies are healthy and happy and I can't wait to see what my garden will look like this year. Thank you Diane! Plus, she has great articles if you have trouble deciding which of the hundreds and hundreds of tomatoes to try or what type of flower you want in your garden. I don't have a green thumb, and I am growing my beneficial bug, hummingbird, butterfly attracting flowers and some fragrant varieties too and feel like I have 2 green hands. Shipping was super fast on both orders and Diane graciously gave me an extra pack of flower seeds on both orders. I appreciated the fast shipping since I wanted to start within the 8 week mark for starting seeds indoors before the frost date and Diane easily accommodated for my procrastination. Plus, I am planning on trying out her secret recipe that she uses on her roses this summer as well. You can't go wrong buying from Diane's Seeds

I ordered from Diane's Seeds for the first time a few months ago and was very pleased with my order. The seed packets had a good amount of seeds in each, shipping was fast, and the seeds I purchased have germinated well. Will buy from Diane's again.

I am very impressed with Diane's selection of tomatos that I had not found at other places. I was drooling before I could check out! I do recommend you visit her store if for no other reason that to look at the beautiful tomato pictures.

My second year ordering from Diane's. As in 2011, lightning fast service from the USA to Canada, generous packet quantities & excellent germination of all I've planted so far. (Waiting on the tomatoes till a bit closer to spring.)

Diane has a very well done website that is very informative, with lots of useful information for anyone looking to start their gardens from seed. Also very professional in the manner in which questions are answered, with timely replies to questions if needed. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a good, honest, sincere company to get their seeds from.

I attempted winter-sowing my seeds and I had great luck with Diane's Seeds. I cannot wait to place my order for 2012 sowing. Last night I was weeding, awash in the smell of root beer from my gratis packet of agastache rupestris. I hated weeding, but I loved smelling my free plants!

I appreciate your posting a positive comment about my seed business. But I think you misunderstood the daylily seed starting information that I included with the order. Here's exactly what the instructions say, "Growing daylilies from seed is challenging. If you end up with one plant from a packet of seeds, you are doing well. If you don't get any, you may want to consider buying plants." I didn't realize that this statement could be interpreted in a negative way. I'll remove it from the instructions in the future.

I just wanted everyone to know that I placed another order from Diane on June 29th and I received my order on July 2nd.
Diane's service is wonderful and if she says it will ship right away it will.
I have also ordered from her before and the seeds I order are always quick to germinate. I don't think I've had one not grow yet and I've ordered a lot from her.
I can tell you that if you order from Diane's once you will never order from anyone else again. Wonderful service.

I have received yet another order from Diane's, at least she is the one company you can count on for getting your order quickly and right away, I wish everyone else was so efficient.
I will continue to order from her in the future.

I continue to order from Diane, she always ships quickly and my order is always correct. As to the germination rates, I have never had a problem with the seeds I get from Diane. They are probably higher than from any other company I order from.

After many happy purchases from Diane over the years I must says that I have had the best germination results from her seeds by far. I have always been very satisfied with her seeds, service and policies. I think that if customers expect these seed companies to offer 100% guarantees on seed purchases then the companies should require the customer to be 100% idiot proof. There are so many variables when growing seeds that are dependant on the customer that it would be very hard to prove it was the seeds themselves.

Another great experience from Diane's. Quick acknowledgment of my order and fast shipping. Seeds were well packaged.
Last year's seeds from Diane had great germination rates. Agastache "Golden Jubilee" bloomed profusely the first year.

I didn't order this year from Diane - I'm running out of room in my garden! But I just wanted to say that all my dealings with her have been lovely, and I look around in my garden and see many beauties in bloom that were started with her excellent seed.

In early July 2010 I ordered Dianthus amurensis 'Siberian Blues' which germinated immediately and began to grow in a large pot. In mid August I went on vacation and neglected to make arrangements to have my garden watered. When I arrived home the D. amurensis appeared quite dead and dehydrated from the summer heat and no rain. After that wakeup call, I watered my garden each day and hoped for the best. A few weeks later I was rewarded with green shoots in the D. amurensis pot. Not being sure if these were D. amurensis or Dianthus from another pot which had scattered seeds, I cared for seedlings and hoped for the best. The winter came and I moved the pots to a sheltered location where they were covered 3 to 4 feet of snow for most of the winter.

I have ordered from Diane's several times. All of my experiences have been positive. I did experience very low germination rates on a Cosmos mix (which surprised me as I usually end up with a surplus of Cosmos), but overall I have done very well with Diane's seeds. Service is good, shipping is fast and shipping costs are reasonable.
