This is my first time ordering with this company. I went by the recommendation of a friend and I could not be more pleased!! I ordered several different plants and several different seeds. I am super impressed with this company for several reasons.

First, I included a note when I placed my delivery and it was immediately answered. In less than 24hrs I received a reply. The customer service I experienced was above par. There were several times I emailed a question about something and received an immediate reply.

In addition, I received my order very promptly and in pristine condition. I think if people actually read the policies and made sure they were clear about them (as I did) prior to ordering, there wouldn't be any of the issues I'm seeing with some of these reviews.

Finally, the quality of the items definitely met and exceeded my expectations. I was nervous about receiving live plants via shipping, but it turns out that was such a non-issue. The plants not only looked great upon receipt, but they are thriving very well.

I am also impressed with their prices. I think they're very competitive. I recall seeing live plants and shrubs on the list that were lower in cost than my local farmer's market (and they have excellent prices).

The bottom line is from the beginning to the end I felt like I was a valued customer, that my questions were taken seriously, and regardless if I spent $10 or $100 I would be treated the same.
As long they have what I'm looking for I will continue to order from this company. I'm glad I took my friend's advice.

Thank you for such a pleasant experience Horizon/Strictly Medicinal!

I have been a patron of Horizon (now Strictly Medicinal) for almost as long as their existance, about ~15 years now. Often I turn friends to Horizon, and group larger orders together with them. Always appreciative of prompt phone and email correspondences. If nothing else, the catalog reads like a textbook, and I pass them on as such to newer gardener friends. Horizon, from my distant perspective, operates as a model family farm business, which I adore. There are very few seed suppliers with their level of integrity across-the-board. I do know this well, being an organic family gardener, commercial farmer, and rare-plant collector.

I recieved my most recent order from them a few days ago. Nothing to bxtch about as usual. Timely, well-packed, and germination already, on-par with their own germ rates posted in the catalog.

I have no interest in Horizon, I get no kickbacks from promoting them, and have never met them, but I snicker at the "Negatives" below because they seem so petty (my own opinion). In fact, claims to "have never killed a plant in my life" are kinda suspicious to me. I think I'm quite adept with my horticultural and agricultural skills, but I still kill plants sometimes. It happens. And I don't blame the germplasm supplier. It's part of my perspective or ethic, that I am always a student of nature, and never proclaiming to myself or others that I am a master..of anything. That being said, Richo and friends are just human, so I bet they as well can make mistakes (but I'm dubious), so I hope the Negs will give it another go and realize that they strive to be fair in their transactions, and correct the mistake.

This is my first year buying and seeds from horizon herbs. I asked customer service about some of their seeds being organic and inorganic and they were very very helpful. A few of the items I ordered we're not listed as organic but they found me organic seeds for these items. Extremely happy with communication with their customer service.

This is the second year I have ordered live roots from Horizon herbs and the roots showed up pretty quick. The roots were beautiful and packaged with care, I even received a lovely gift of live viola roots. I had ordered some seeds as well, I have used Horizon seed many years and have been quiet happy. The catalog is full of good growing tips. I have had many great successes and will continue to order from Horizon, I can feel the love when I open the box.

I have recently purchased 9 plants and 2 seed packets from Horizon Herbs. I have read the negative comments and was not sure if I want to take a chance on my $100 but I did. I have to say that the plants arrived in excellent condition and started to grow right away, they were packed with most care that I have ever seen. The variety of the plants that this company offers is amazing. I highly recommend it. One thing to keep in mind is that they would not add another plant after I made the payment, they stick to their policy and the customer service is not the most kind either, but the plants are great and the selection is awesome. Thank you Horizon Herbs.

I ordered 6 comfrey roots on Sept. 12th, 2015 and received them today Sept. 17th, 2015. I received not 6 but 7 roots, 2 of which were very large and each had a visible piece of the crown as described and some even with a little growth. They were packaged very well in moist coir and all of the roots look very healthy. I planted them immediately and will give an update once I have the results on their growth.

I had ordered my first ashitaba plant from another seller online and it died on me right off the bat. Then I decided to try again through a different online seller. After doing some research online, I have decided to go with Horizon Herbs. I liked what I read about them from their website and I thought to give them a try. I called their company before I made my order because I have few questions about how to grow an ashitaba plant. The person who anwered my call was so polite and very accommodating, and she gave me an email address to post my questions, and she told me to wait a day to hear from the gardener in charge. Richo (the gardener) answered my email the following day and attached an instruction (which can be found on their site) on how to grow the plant. I really didn't expect to hear from him so soon and I have communicated with him a few times too after I ordered my plants. I really appreciate that they took time to explain in their website what to expect (once we receive our orders) with different orders, be they seeds, plants, bulbs, trees etc.
My plants came in neatly packed that it took me quite some time to pry the plants from the box that they came in. The soil were moist and the dirt stayed where they belong... in the pot. Thank you so much Horizon Herbs =)

Horizon Herbs carriers a number of unusual plants and seeds. For those of us in the herbal healing business they are a great resource. Often they have plants that are not listed on their website and if you ask them they sometimes have them.

I first ordered dried herbs (which were wonderfully, carefully packed and very fresh), then some seeds which contained very good package information like where and when to plant them for best germination and finally I got plants. They were in the best soil I've ever received from any company (and I've bought thousands of plants, really!).

To address the customer service issue that many people seem to have... all I can say is that their products are worth the wait if there is one! My orders have been received within a reasonable time for these types of products (live plants, etc.) and customer service has always been very helpful with quick response as needed.

I orders 6 comfrey crown cuttings from Horizon Herbs a few weeks ago. They were shipped on the date that I requested and only took a few days to arrive. Not only did I get real generous cuttings they also included 3 smaller ones so I ended up with 9 total plants. Their customer service was quick to respond to my emails and really detailed with the answers to my questions. They also sent a free catalog with my order. They get 5 stars in my book and i will definitely be ordering from their web site again in the future.

Posted on March 12, 2015, updated March 14, 2015
This review is aimed solely at their customer service, not the quality of their products, which I believe are good. I mainly want to comment on their extremely slow service, especially during the busy season when they cannot seem to staff up to meet the demand. If you are in a hurry for an item, you must order well ahead of the busy season or else find a more responsive company. I ordered 2 packets of seeds on March 1. (Just as a contrast, I ordered 2 packets of seeds from another company on March 2 and received them by March 6.) When March 11 arrived and I still had nothing from Horizon, I called to find out the status of my order. I was informed that this was their busy season and there was a 16 day lag between receiving an order and filling it. They said it would be another week before they would get to my order. However, they told me if I would pay them another $10 (more than my seeds cost), they would mail them out promptly. I laughed and cancelled the order! I turned around and ordered the exact same item from another company who promptly informed me that all seed orders are filled with 1-2 days of order receipt and I would have the seeds the same week. Quite a contrast, as it is their busy season too. So if you are in no rush for an item and are willing to wait for an extended period, Horizon is probably fine, but if you need something soon, you will have to pay $10 over and above your order cost to get the same fast service you will get from other vendors for free. And when you call to find out why your order has not arrived, you will probably get the same unsympathetic response I got--\"Sorry but we are busy. Just pay us $10 more and you can have your item mailed right out.\"

I appreciate the quick feedback and definitely want to be fair. I realize they carry lots of unusual items and have a high demand for their products. Plus it sounds like there was a mistaken application of the rules. I have already received my refund and do not wish to renew the order.

This review is clearly written and useful. I have contacted customer service to repeat once again our policy, which apparently was not followed. New orders with requests for immediate shipment garner a $10.00 rush charge. If a customer calls for order status and the item has not yet shipped, it is our policy to provide fast turnaround gratis. I have d-mailed joylucile to get in touch with me (richo) personally so I can be sure her items are shipped without further delay. I have requested that she change this negative rating and expect that she will. Isn\'t there enough negativity in life and in the world without us gardeners shooting negativity at eachother?

I believe it is useful for foreign purchasers if there are information available as to how the transaction proceeds when purchasing from Horizon Herbs, so here I record what happens between me and Horizon Herbs during the transaction.

Before writing the history of communications with Horizon Herbs, it might be good idea to note it is July now, spring, the busy season, is already over.

Before making orders, I wrote a mail asking about history of trade to Taiwan to know about any potential risks it might involve. I got a response from Horizon Herbs in 2-3 days.

So I ordered some seeds on 6/30 to be shipped to Taiwan.
And I got a message saying "Thank you for your order" when completed the order online. In the ordering info, it says "pending" in the status column.

The next day the payment status become "completed" from "pending". But I did not received any message from Horizon Herbs, so I do not know what did it mean. The Carrier and Tracking ID columns are still in blank.

In my understanding, Horizon Herbs is not aware of current status of transactions since each contracted gardener ships products and Horizon Herbs functions mere a "transaction center" to connect customers and gardeners, but this understanding might be wrong.

Anyway, I am not sure if the seeds have already been shipped or not.

Today, 2 days after the initial order, I sent a mail asking if the shipment is via Air Mail or via Sea Mail. I believe this kind of trading normally use Air Mail, but I could not find any explanation about it in Horizon Herbs web site, and also, I was informed in the first mail from Horizon Herbs that the shipment might be take up to 6 weeks to be received, so I became a little bit worried about how they were going to send me the seeds.

I hope everything goes well. (keep updating later)

On July 5th, 2014, elmundodelcacti added the following:

Hi Horizon Herbs, thank you for your explanation. Everything is clear now.

Since the last mail asking for shipping method, in the very next day, I got a response from Horizon Herbs, saying "We only ship international orders via AIR mail. You will receive an email confirmation with tracking number when it leaves.

The same day, or 5 business days from the initial order, I got a link to tracking information of USPostalService "". I believe this 5 working days processing period is quite reasonable for an order to be processed, even this perception would be different per purchaser.

Once we get a link to tracking info (Scan History), detailed tracking information for each scanning point of package shipping slip becomes available.

Oh I forgot to mention that Horizon Herbs chose to ship my seeds via "First Class International (R)" of USPS. Per, "First-Class Mail Internationalģ is our most affordable international service for letters, postcards, and large envelopes". Wow, Horizon Herbs chose the best air mail service available for my seeds!

When I received this Scan History, initially it only said "Shipped via: USPS Reserved" and the "scan history" in blank. That means Horizon Herbs has given the USPS the shipping info, and seeds are yet to be received by USPS.

4 hours after the "Reserved" status notification, "ORIGIN ACCEPTANCE" status was added to the scan history. OK, now I know seeds have been handed over to the USPS.

There is one important issue better to know. The Carrier and Tracking# columns in the Horizon Herbs' ordering info (purchase receipt) page remains in blank even after the seeds have handed over the USPS 2 days ago. So if you want to track the shipment of your seeds, then it is recommended to check the USPS link rather than Horizon Herbs' ordering info.

Summary of transaction is below.

Inquiry - response: 2-3 working days
Initial order made - shipping: 3 working days (I wrote 5 days in the previous post but it was wrong)
MEDFORD to Los Angeles: 2 working days
Los Angeles to Taiwan: 4 days

Now I had a big problem. Some seeds were MUCH less in number than they should be. I ordered 4 class of seeds with 8 seeds packs.

I ordered:
"50 seeds Lot #8073" X 2 packs.

I received:
a packet with 27 seeds (46% less seeds)
a packet with 49 seeds.

I ordered:
"50 seeds Lot #7449" X 2 packs.

I received:
a packet with 40 seeds (20% less seeds)
a packet with 45 seeds.

I ordered:
"30 seeds Lot #8074" X 3 packs.

I received:
a packet with 33 seeds
a packet with 33 seeds
a packet with 34 seeds.

I ordered:
"30 seeds Lot #7995" X 3 packs.

I received:
a packet with 30 seeds
a packet with 23 seeds (23% less seeds)
a packet with 34 seeds.

Note: I counted then on a bright orange plate with diameter of 30 cm and took picture of them.

I must write to Horizon Herbs for compensation, at least for the 46% less seeds, and hopefully those seeds with more than 20% less in number. I think plus/minus 15% is reasonable, but 46% less is never acceptable.

I guess they count seeds by weight, but weight count method cannot explain this 46% of shortage in number of seeds.

Now the least desired way of compensation is a issuance of Horizon Herbs' coupon. The best way is Horizon Herbs sends me the rest of seeds I already paid for, but I doubt Horizon Herbs re-sends me them.

Ok, I will write to Horizon Herbs tomorrow and keep updating.

On July 11th, 2014, elmundodelcacti added the following:

I got a response from Horizon Herbs responding to my inquiry about shortage of seeds in quantity in some seed packs, and it said " In any case we are re-sending your order. Richo" and today I got a "Shipment Details" (link to scan history) via E-mail for the re-sending of seeds. So Horizon Herbs re-sent me the rest of my seeds. I never expected this happened since it could cost a lot of additional costs to Horizon Herbs.

Thank you very much Horizon Herbs, now I am totally happy with everything you offered me.

Finally, I must mention that the seed protective materials Horizon Herbs used for the shipment were of more than enough, with double layered shock absorber and water proof sealing for each seed pack, meaning the seeds were well protected. And now I noticed the shipping cost is really reasonable with this kind of expensive protective materials used. But it is important to note seeds in a most protective envelop can be damaged if a person stepped on it and that can happen anytime during shipment.

My seeds were in perfect conditions per see when arrived, there were no broken pieces, tips nor fragments in the seed packs. Also there were no trace of seed packs opened during the shipment. Everything was in perfect conditions.

Ok, let me summarize my experience with Horizon Herbs:

Horizon Herbs offers you:
- Best price for seeds
- Reliability on shipping (fast shipping method + well protected package)
- Fast and quality customer attendance
- Responsibility to claims
- ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE overall experiences

I will definitely make orders again.

Yesterday, July 22, I received the one time free replacement of seeds. This time seeds took a route via New York and so it took 5 more days than via Los Angeles. Notice that the tracking record never shows "departure" from Jamaica, NY, unlike the case via Los Angeles.

Hi There,
The above letter is very interesting and the suppositions are well meaning. To set it straight:
1) We ship all international orders via AIR MAIL.
2) We are not a "transaction center." We have 2 sides to our business: Customer Service (answers phone, invoices, downloads orders, charges cards, etc.) Farm (grows and cleans seeds, plants plants, ships seeds, ships plants, etc.)
3) "Completed" means your order was successfully paid for and downloaded and we are working on getting you your stuff. As long as you gave us your e-mail when you ordered, you actually received an automatic e-mail from us that said your order was successfully paid for and downloaded and we are working on getting you your stuff. Additionally, you will receive an e-mail with tracking when your seeds actually ship.
4) International orders may take 6 weeks to receive because they have to be approved by CUSTOMS. We have no control over customs delays. Sometimes seeds are rejected at customs and the customer never gets their goods. Sometimes we receive the package back weeks later and start the process of communicating with the customer, sometimes the seeds are simply discarded at customs (Italy and Greece are the worst for this, also Taiwan, China, South Africa and Brazil are very chancy). Most seed companies in the US will not send seeds internationally because, considering losses incurred through customs issues, it is not a profitable venture. However, we keep trying, because we would like gardeners to get what they need regardless of where they are.
If you would like personal assistance with any issues you have, it would make sense to drop me an e-mail at: herbseed (at)
I would prefer this over your public posting of comments on this "Dave's" venue.
I do a lot of free consultation (limit 3 e-mails) with gardeners every day, and I help people understand the process of ordering and receiving live botanicals. Thank you for choosing "positive," it makes a difference!

Hello, I took your letter seriously because it seemed so exacting in terms of seed counts. All the cacti seed are hand counted and should be exact. I pulled a sample of lot 8073 and counted the seeds. it contained exactly 50 seeds as per label designation. Perhaps you had seeds crushed into powder in the post. This can easily happen with cactus seeds. In any case we are re-sending your order. Richo"

I will undoubtably be buying seed from them again.

This year I ordered seven different seeds, but the incentive was their fresh Sanguinaria canadensis (Bloodroot) seeds. In fact, I only went to their site to order this year because of the Bloodroot seeds, and just added six other seeds as to 'fill the quota" of seeds to bring into my country without getting additional taxes; I wouldn't order the Bloodroot seeds alone, as Horizon Herbs holds a rather expensive shipping cost to Europe. (Much higher than other seed-companies do to ship non-registered letters to Europe.)

(In fact, I ordered the same seeds last year, but an unforeseen thing happened, so I had to travel away for months. Back again, of course the seeds were not viable anymore. But to my joy I could see that the seeds once had been very viable, since they had germinated (and unfortunately died) in the packet.)

Less than two days after I placed the order I received an email stating that I had received a refund from Horizon Herbs. The amount was that of the Bloodroot seeds. There was no additional information on the email though. But it got me anxious. So I logged into my account on Horizon Herbs, and checked the order status. It said nothing about the refund there. (Yet.) I then wrote Horizon Herbs an email through their site, where I asked the question whether it was the Bloodroot seeds that they had refunded me for. I expressed like I did above, that the Bloodroot seeds were what made me order in the first place, and I requested that they would explain whether the refund was for these seeds.

I also checked the status of the Bloodroot seeds on their site, and it was still shown as available to buy. (Now, eleven days later it still is available to click and add into the shopping basket.)

I received no answer to my email to them. (Now it is nine days ago since I wrote them the email.)

A couple of days later, I wrote them again, but not only because of the Bloodroot seeds. Since the order didn't seem to have been executed yet, I wondered whether they could add another type of seed that needs to be fresh to germinate (Galium odoratum - Sweet Woodruff.) In this email - also written through my account on their site - I also mentioned that I had written them another email a couple of days before, and by this hinting that I expected an answer.

I have received no answer to either of the emails - and it's been more than a week that I wrote the last one.

I checked the order status a couple of more days later, and it still didn't reveal anything about the Bloodroot seeds.

But today I checked the order status again, and now it clearly states on my order: "refund bloodroot: $-9.95"

I have yet to receive the letter with the seeds to my mail box, but of course it means that the Bloodroot seeds are not shipped to me.

To me this tells this about Horizon Herbs:

Lack of valuing the customer: Horizon Herbs have neglected to understand the importance of delivering what they offer. And IF some item in an order for some unforseen reason is not available, they should give a clear notice to the customer about it before executing orders.

Lack of communication: If they at all read my two emails, they have neglected the importance I put on specifically the Bloodroot seeds.

Lack of flexibility or options to the order: If they happened to have read my emails, they should have given me the opportunity to cancel the order.

All in all this is one of the worst experiences I have had when it comes to ordering seeds.

I notice that a representative for Horizon Herb has read through the feedbacks here, and have offered comments to some of the neutral or negative feedbacks.

I would then simply end this review by a message to the representative for Horizon Herb:

1. Don't just address customers through this site: Show common courtesy and instead respond directly matters regarding a change of order to their email addresses. 'Too busy to respond' isn't an excuse in business. Write your customers directly if there is some unforeseen discrepancy regarding an order.

2. If your shop is empty for a particular seed, then for goodness sake, don't let the seed stay available to add to the basket! Tag the seeds as 'sold out' as other seed companies do. (As already stated, it is eleven days ago since I ordered the seeds, and the very same seeds are seemingly available to buy.

3. Whenever Horizon Herb has the Sanguinaria canadensis seeds available again for shipping, then if Horizon Herbs ship to me a portion of these seeds (I will pay for the seeds, but not for the postage), I will change this feedback from negative to positive.

Why am I willing to go all from negative to positive? That is because Horizon Herbs (on the positive side) appear to really keep the quality on their seeds high. Other years where I have ordered seeds from them, their packaging of seeds, and the quality has appeared to be high.

Therefore, if Horizon Herbs will stretch themselves to ship the seeds (when available to them) to amend this bad experience of mine, the overall picture is thus different, and I am willing to change the review.

But for now, too bad that this negative experience has turned my impression about this seed company around a 180į.

On April 18th, 2014, RedFingers changed the rating from negative to positive and added the following:

So I started out writing a bad review for Horizon Herbs.

The mentioned seed which without notice I received refund for was meant as a back order. An understandable and excusable human mistake.

I am now promised that the seed will be shipped to me by harvest time around the time of May/June. And as I wrote at the end of the review, if Horizon Herb would make an endeavor to correct things, I would then change the rating to positive.

I still have an impression that Horizon Herbs as a business should improve its response to customer inquiries, but overall I think that Horizon Herbs deserves a positive rating from me.

According my experience with the company, Horizon Herb's strongest quality is following:

Their seeds are of high quality (!) Whenever they advertise a certain viability of a seed, you can trust the ratio of germination to be just as they informed.

I placed two orders with Horizon Herbs for 2014. The first order was for (20) comfrey cuttings, (2) black cohosh roots, (2) goldenseal roots, and (20) camas bulbs. The second order included a number of seed packets.

Order placing was simple and straight forward. A shipping notification arrived 3 days after ordering for the order placed in November and 10 days after the order placed in December. The shipment of the roots went on a joy ride to Denver (super strange since Denver doesn't seem on the way from Oregon to Southern California) and took forever to arrive but we got them right into the ground the next day. The orders arrived nicely packed with lots of good vibes.

There were more than twenty comfrey cuttings shipped and so far twenty-two have emerged; the first leaves on some cuttings emerged within 3 days! It's still too soon for the other bulbs and roots but I expect similar results.

I've started some of the seeds. Germination rates are terrific and all the seedlings are vigorous. Nettles, burdock, mullein germinated in less than 7 days. It's still too cool here for some of the others even here in sunny San Diego.

I highly recommend Horizon Herbs. Be forewarned, if you are impatient and expect instant results, this might not be the seed house for you. But, if you want awesome seeds, roots, and bulbs Horizon Herbs is a great choice.

The website claims that my card will not be billed until order has shipped... I placed my order on Jan. 20th, and my card was billed immediately. On Jan. 28, I still hadn't received my order. I called the number listed on their site, and was told that my order had shipped and that I needed to check my email for verification email, and to also check my spam folder because sometimes their emails get caught there. So I had already checked those, and told the girl I had already checked. She said that my order had already shipped, but verification couldn't be done because the shippers had already left for the day. She told me she would call me this morning (Jan. 29th) to let me know about shipping verification. By 12:30 p.m. my time in Alabama, I'd still received no call. I called their number again, and explained previous situation, and was told that the order had not yet shipped, but was being shipped immediately (at the very time I was on the phone with Horizon Herbs.) When I came home at 4:15 p.m., I checked my email, and a verification email was in my INBOX (not SPAM box) that states the order was shipped after 2:00 p.m. (Yes, I do realize the time zone difference.) I called Horizon again to be extra sure the order had shipped, and to point out that their own website states that my card would not be billed until shipment was made, that my card was billed 9 days ago, I had received no notice that the shipment would be *late* and shipment had not occurred, and that it seemed there was no intent of shipping my order until I investigated it. *Customer Service(?)* glossed over the issue and I was told that it may take 5 days for my order to arrive. This puts me far behind in growing time. I read and believed & enjoyed your bio online. I entrusted you with my hope & order, and cash dollars. I ordered things that you should have readily available, according to your own word. However, this evening, I read reviews for Horizon Herbs online, and have now become anxious. Please let this situation improve and become favorable. Please don't give me the run around.

This is what the confirmation email states (cut & pasted):
Mailing Date: 1/29/2014
Est. Delivery: 1-3 days
Service: Priority Mail (R)
Signature: Not Required

So she told me on the phone arrival could take 5 days...

And, I just checked the time difference, and Oregon is 2 hours behind Alabama, so at 1:09 p.m. (the exact time that I called Horizon) it was 11:09 a.m. in Oregon. She told me my order was being shipped at that very moment... the confirmation email states that my order was shipped at 2:12 p.m.? Is this correct? 2:12 p.m. in Alabama means that it was 12:12 p.m. in Oregon, which is still not 11:09 a.m.
If I don't receive my order *5 days* will you please give me my money back so that I may use it to go elsewhere to purchase seed?

Besides the pictures on the website there are also some videos on YouTube showing what the plants look like such as the Ashitaba, these are very helpful and give you examples of leaf structure and growing these items. The catalog is most helpful because it describes growth and historical uses for the herbs. The plants I have ordered have continued to flourish as well. Most recently I had some questions regarding the growth of 2 of the plants I ordered approx. 2 years ago, the cape aloe and cactus grandiflorous, I sent an email with my questions and I received a response in about 2 days from Richo.

Thank you for the positive review, it is appreciated more than you can possibly know. We grow the comfrey these days in our downtown gardens and what I've noticed is that the vigor comes through--make a cutting from a puny plant and you get a puny response--make a cutting from a vital plant and you get a vital response. So we have plenty of vital plants these days to make cuttings from, and that's a real blessing. I'm not sure about the "crown cutting" part--we think we only send crown cuttings but maybe there's a difference in concept of what a crown cutting is. Should be a root with a piece of the crown attached. I do sometimes include some root cuttings instead of crown cuttings, but only when they are so large that I just can't help it. Richo"

First of all, Horizon Herbs' selection is jaw-dropping. And so many plants that I haven't seen ever since moving to the USA. It was somewhat nostalgic. Comfrey (I ordered roots) reminds me of that lush jungle of comfrey bushes in front of my grandmother's gate back in the village. I used to love pulling the flowers out of their holders and eat the sweet nectar. But that aside...

I tried to approach this new resource (new to me) without any preconceptions of whens and hows. I've already read about their workflow, and yeah, I can imagine that kind of business getting, well, busy. But when they got to shipping my order out, it arrived within 2 days. All seeds neatly packed, quantity errs on the "extra" side for the most part. Instructions to germination and planting are right there on little packets, and more information is on the website. If still in doubt about any plant, use Google.

Now I'm gonna face the issue of where to plant all these babies. I mean, I can deal with 20 seeds of some, but 100, 500... That'll keep me busy. I'm also very happy that I found a resource that puts name on all those plants that I've observed every day in the village but never knew what they were called.

Definitely will shop more, and before recommending HH to anyone, I'll make sure to inform them about the way things are done so that people won't be expecting the sun, and the moon, and the whole stars ensemble "right here" and "right now". No one likes constant nagging, and communication is best when you ask the right questions.

On June 3rd, 2013, AenRiv added the following:


I'm quite impressed with how Russian comfrey took off growing - literally on the next morning after potting it, there were leaves sticking out. A few days later I was afraid for its health and transplanted into ground - sure enough, it was ALMOST root bound by that time. What a lovely monster!

Shungiku (chrysanthemums) have their first set of adult leaves. The seedlings are looking pretty healthy.

Burdock "Gobo" seeds were probably the first of all seeds to have sprouted. They have slowed down for now. I gave ashitaba seeds a little cold stratification, now they are in the soil. We'll see what they do. BTW, I tried sushi with gobo - the taste is just... very very pleasant. It's gonna be a while till mine grow to be ready for consumption :D

All in all, I'm excited even more now!
On June 14th, 2013, AenRiv added the following:

Amazingly, even after shorter-than-30-days stratification, there's a first Ashitaba sprout in the pot. And the "cranky germinator" which is Arhat fruit/vine, is on it's way. I've seen the first sprout lifting it's head in its own little pot. Seeded 5/11, sprouted 6/14 in a shady but warm spot, kept moist at all times. Watching them sprout is really watching a miracle happening. Now I gotta keep the bugs away.

I am always thrilled (altough no longer surprised) to see those little green sprouts pushing out of the ground in happy profusion. I have also had great success ordering plants - my rosemary bushes are chest high and flowering profusely. The quirky seed catalog gives loads of great gardening advice, and I really appreciate the personal touches, including hand-drawn cartoons and humorous comments. The company is dedicated to green practices, printing their catalog on recycled paper with soy-based ink, using biodegradable packaging in their shipments, and selling eco-friendly gardening products (e.g. coir, a sustainable replacement for peat moss made from coconut husks). Horizon Herbs sells open pollinated seed varieties, meaning that seeds from their plants can be collected and regrown true to species. This is nice for me as a gardener, but also important for perserving heirloom herb and vegetable varieties that are being pushed out by hybrid cultivars. In my experience, customer service has been prompt and polite, and I appreciate that it is easy to reach a real human being when I have questions.
