I was very pleased with my order of seeds. I thought the shipping was a bit high for seeds, they don't weight much, but no complaints other than that. Near 100% germination rate on some tomatoes, not so high on some peppers, but it's hasn't yet been the full two weeks. Love the full color beautiful catalog and easy to order online. Packets are very informative.

Suggestions on the packaging: germination temp and daylight hours requirement. I use grow lights and that would be helpful.

I have ordered over $300 worth of seeds from SSE. Orders have always arrived quickly and the staff has answered questions I have (mostly dumb ones) courteously. They are my seed supplier of choice.

I had a large order of seeds, a full order form full. It took about 10 days or maybe a little longer, at the time they were snowed in bad in Iowa and the surrounding area so that was most likely the short delay, i don't need the seeds until spring so I wasn't expecting them in 3-4 days anyway. All seeds arrived in great condition, only one item was back ordered[ bunte forellenschluss lettuce. I love SSE, I visited their farm on labor day weekend 2010, a way positive experience, I bought a lot of things in the visitors center, staff and clerks were very friendly and helpful. I will order from them again anytime.

A great place to buy seeds.
A wide selection of heirloom vegetables and herbs. The germination rate has always been as stated on the seed packet, and my potatoes have always produced many large and tasty tubers.
Tara in customer service is always quick with a response to your questions and concern's.
I highly recommend them.

On April 20th, 2010, 1SickPuppy changed the rating from positive to negative and added the following:

Let me start out by saying I waited 3 business days for a response to my complaint before I wrote this review.
I ordered and received a 25# bag of Caribe seed potatoes along with another 25# bag of Yukon Gold. For the most part the Yukons fall within the acceptable range for seed potatoes but the Caribe's were almost an entire loss. They were moldy, scared, punctured and rotten for the most part. This besides the fact that they were so large that I could have sold them as baked potatoes at the fair. The problem didn't happen during the shipping but you can see that they have been bad for quite a while. There are even cuts in some of them from harvesting.
I now have to find another local source for my spuds because my garden is ready to go and I am leaving town for a couple of weeks
I will continue to order seeds from SSE but I will not be buying anymore potatoes from them and I suggest others think twice before going through them.
Shame on you SSE!
On May 4th, 2010, 1SickPuppy added the following:

I cannot believe that SSE has lowered itself to become one of the companies listed on this site that don't respond to their customers concerns.
As the "Company Representative" requested I contacted the customer service rep's and got the same response I received prior to my posting................NONE.
Here is what I wrote:
1st Email:

I just received my potato order from you Invoice Number: XXXXXXX and a large portion of the order of Caribe Potatoes were moldy and unusable (8# are bad). I ordered a 25# bag of these potatoes along with 25# of Yukon Gold and I am not happy with the product at all. The mold and juices from the rotten potatoes has contaminated some of the Yukons and most of the Caribes.
I have ordered potatoes from your site in the past and have received beautiful potatoes. These Caribe's are "huge, moldy and I'm afraid to even plant them.

2nd Email
Since this email I have left negative feedback on Daves Garden website. This seems to have drawn the attention of "a company representative" in your organization.
They wanted me to get back to someone and straighten this situation out although what was suggested would not be workable for me at this time. Since I did not receive a response to my previous email complaint I went out and purchased some seed potatoes locally so my crop would be in the ground before I had to go out of town, so replacement potatoes at this point would be a waste of time and money. It turns out that the spoiled product was worse than I originally thought and the damaged potatoes actually weighted in at 11lbs 14oz.
What I think would work for me at this time would either be for either my credit card being adjusted to reflect the lost product (plus shipping & handling) or a credit for further purchases.
If this is acceptable to you I will remove the negative rating from the website.
This whole situation could have been taken care of in a more personable manner and the whole world wouldn't have had to know about it if you would have contacted me within a reasonable amount of time to explain the situation.
In the future I hope to receive the product and services I have become accustomed to from your organization.
As of this response.
Buyer Beware!

On August 16th, 2010, 1SickPuppy added the following:

Well.......After reading the reply from the "company representative" I again contacted SSE. I was ignored just as I was previously. This is a great example of a company becoming too big to care about it's customers. It's lost it's focus and now it seems to be just about profits.
Against my better judgment I planted what I could salvage from the Caribe Seed Potatoes and go exactly what I feared. The potatoes where ugly, scared and misshapen. The other potatoes I planted in the same bed where great and had no scars whatsoever. They looked "normal".
Since SSE has left me no other recourse I have decided to contact the USDA, and the Department of Agriculture for the State of Iowa and Wisconsin. There was something wrong with the seed potatoes that were sent to me and I am hoping that they investigate my complaint. I have pictures of the seed potatoes sent to me and I am willing to have my crop and soil tested to see if I was sent diseased seeds. I still have a file of the emails I sent to SSE which included pics of the potatoes.
Again I can't emphasis this your seed potatoes elsewhere! There are distributors out there who still care.

I want to thank customer service at SSE for resolving this issue. I don't know why my earlier emails were not answered but in the end I am more than satisfied with the outcome.

Seed Savers Exchange will be happy to provide replacements for potato varieties you found to be unacceptable. The Caribe is a very large, good eating potato, but is not a very good keeper. In fact we struggled again this year to sort through our supply to have enough "acceptable" potatoes to meet committed orders, and quit taking new orders in mid-February as a result. We furthermore have decided not to offer the Caribe next year, and are growing a number of varieties this year to decide on a replacement. Thank you for your feedback and we hope you will try potatoes from Seed Savers again in the future.

On Aug 16, 2010 2:22 PM, Seed Savers Exchange added:

Please understand how very frustrating this situation is for us here at Seed Savers Exchange. The problem is that we have not received any emails from you, therefore it is impossible for us to help you when we do not know who you are. We have even gone through our entire list of customers with an address in Waukesha, WI and could not find anyone who had ordered Caribe potatoes and have found no emails regarding this potato variety.

The Seed Savers Exchange staff would never ignore emails or voice mails from any customer. We respond to everyone who contacts us in a timely manner. Please help us so we can help you by contacting us at [email protected] and also send all your previous emails concerning your order to this email address. Also, call us at 563-382-5990 and ask for Tom, Laura or Kathy so we can check to see if your email has been received. Our business hours are 8:30-5:00 CDT. You will be issued a complete refund.

Let us hear from you so we can correct this situation. We want to help you just as we help any other customer who is not completely satisfied with their purchase. We never expect any customer to accept a product they are not satisfied with. The Caribe potato we got from our supplier this year was a great disappointment for us and as soon as we were aware of the situation we stopped taking orders for that variety. Thank you."

The problem with this company is that it doesn't tell you it is out of something until you receive your order. Surprise! You open the package and discover the item you really wanted (the rest you had just ordered as filler), the company is out of. Oh, the company didn't bother to tell you after you placed the order that the item was no longer available. It just added the note to the shipment box. How about some organization and communication!

"On Jun 17, 2010 10:32 AM, Seed Savers Exchange responded with:

We apologize for the inconvenience with this order. This is a rare problem and one we take several precautions to prevent. Occasionally we run out of seed or are otherwise unable to fill catalog offerings. In these instances the item is flagged in our system as backordered or sold out. While we are not sure how Connoisseur placed the order, here is the usual protocol.

Phone Orders: We alert the customer on the phone when an item is not available.

Web Orders: Items flagged as unavailable cannot be purchased online.

Mail/Fax Orders: When an item is unavailable as listed in the catalog and the customer prefers not to accept a substitute, we contact the person. If we do not hear anything back from the customer, whether via email or phone, we process the order as it is. We would rather have them receive what is available and work out the details on the remainder of the order later. Unfortunately in this specific case it did not turn out very well. We encourage customers to email us at [email protected] and we will work out all the details.

We will respond also through Dmail to learn the name/address of Connoisseur and research the audit trail to make sure that we took the steps we needed for this person. We apologize for this breakdown of communication, but welcome the feedback.

What happened to the Seed Savers Exchange I once loved. There has been a total lack of communication between customers and customer service. I sent 3 emails to 2 different representatives and received no reply.
It seems I am not the only one who had bought the Caribe potatoes and received useless garbage. They obviously don't want to give the money back. My problem is not related to's bad suppliers. These potatoes should have been thrown into the compost heap in the fall and should have never made it to the warehouse. These were not even close to being seed potatoes.

I joined the SSE this year and ordered some seeds as well as transplants from them. The seeds arrived promptly. Had germination issues with one of the seed packets, e-mailed them and got a replacement packet.
Waiting on the transplants next week. Will give an update after they arrive.

I recommend this company and their products and support their non-GMO and non-hybrid seeds.

I wanted to give an update on the transplants. They arrived on time, were very well packaged, and although looked a little stressed (3 days in the UPS truck), perked up quickly after being watered. They look very nice in the garden now a week later.
I would definitely recommend ordering transplants from SSE.

Login and creating a new account were ridiculously difficult and took a tediously long amount of time.

Trying to purchase seeds was unsuccessful at first attempt as the website claimed I had a previous membership which is impossible because I only discovered Seed Savers a few months ago. I requested a "new" password but nothing was sent to the email address they indicated they had on file.

I really wanted to order some seeds so I went ahead and set up a new account. It's an email address I rarely give out because I don't want to be slammed with spam and I'm hoping SSE doesn't sell it.

Another gripe is that the SSE search function isn't reliable. When I first discovered SSE, I asked it to find several unusual seeds that I wanted to find, that came back negative so I found and purchased them elsewhere. Then I found them in the catalog, and they were not only available from SSE, but at $2.75 were a lot less expensive. Later I went back and used the search function again because I didn't want to plow through an entire product line to get to the ones I wanted. I got a couple of false negatives for things I know are sold there.

This next is a minor point but shipping & handling charges are based on a $10 order, though almost all seeds sold by this company are $2.75. They probably should tie s&h charges to the number of packets. I misread the information and had 4 packets picked out so I dropped one to come in under the cutoff.

I really don't think it should be necessary to join SSE to buy seeds. I'm annoyed at the length of time it took me this afternoon to even be able to buy my seeds. I should have been able to jump on, call up the seeds I wanted and type in my order without jumping through hoops.

On the positive side, I'm impressed with the quality and variety of the SSE catalog. And every single plant image I've seen on the site is at least beautiful eye candy, and some of them are are stunning.

Another positive observation is the excellent variety of unusual and heirloom seeds. And if my income tax refund had arrived by now, I'd probably have purchased several others from SSE.

In short, my ordering experience this afternoon was ridiculously time and process consuming to buy just three seed packs from this company. And I resent having to join to make the purchase. I get nothing for my trouble unless I actually take out a paid membership and that's not going to happen.

Started ordering seed for the 2010 season two weeks ago. All of the 2009 garden was done with nursery transplants and I wanted to try (once again) starting my own plants from seed.

Found the SSE website from an article in Mother Earth News.

Downloaded their catalog (.pdf). The photography is excellent. Ordered Stevia seed. It arrived promptly and well packaged.
Ordered Tomato seed with the same results. Only problem is to figure out what to order next.

I was impressed with the tremendous selection, and the mission of SSE so I called them regarding an order I wanted to place. I let them know it was important that I receive the seeds quickly, since they were for our annual garden tour, for a display garden to be grown from seeds. I was assured the seeds would be shipped quickly, so I placed the order, asking that the seeds be sent to a friend who would germinate them. Several weeks later, I learned the seeds had not arrived at my friend's house. When I called SSE, I learned that the seeds had not been shipped due to a minor error. I reminded them about our earlier conversation, and asked if they would expedite shipping. The person I spoke to was apologetic and polite, and she did offer to personally make sure the seeds were sent out that day, but did not agree to ship by an expedited method. Under the circumstances, I thought they should have done so. I'll follow up this feedback when the seeds arrive.

I also appreciate the fact that they don't cheat on number of seeds; I've received packets with FAR more seeds than was indicated in the catalog.

SSE has a little higher prices than some of the other catalogs, but they offer heirlooms that can't be found anywhere else, which makes the price more than worth it. I ordered a mixture of seeds and potatoes from their website this January, and they shipped the seeds promptly. The potatoes of course won't ship till March planting-time. The seeds arrived in less than a week, which is pretty impressive for cross-country shipping.

SSE has one of the best online ordering systems I've seen anywhere, and many of their seeds include seed-saving information right in the description.

I spent ten years getting hooked on heirloom vegetable varieties at farmers' markets; when I moved to a small town and couldn't get those varieties anymore, I figured I'd just have to grow them myself. It was a real treat to get the Seed Savers catalogue and find so many old favorites, not to mention discover dozens of varieties I'd never heard of!

I bought seeds for direct-sowing outdoors (I'm not yet set up to do indoor seed-starting), and the germination rate has been impressive given the cold, wet spring we've had, not to mention my own inexperience. I particularly enjoy explaining the unusual varieties of potatoes and winter squash to my friends and neighbors.

I doubt I'll ever become a member of Seed Savers Exchange -- I like growing too many varieties of things to maintain pure strains! -- but I'm deeply grateful that there's a catalogue available to non-members and that I can still support the work they're doing in some small way.

For the past two years I have purchased a few live tomato and pepper plants. Each year I have had excellant results with these very healthy plants, and very tasty produce. The first year, two of the tomato plants looked like they had gotten too hot in the box and would not make it, but after a few weeks languishing, they began to grow and produced well. I plan to continue to order from SSE, and may even join one year.

First, I have been very disappointed with the poor germination rate of their seeds. Second I ordered prairie plants from them and was told today that they would not arrive until the middle of next week, meaning they would sit in a UPS truck over a hot, 3-day weekend. Thier rationale is that being prairie plants they are tough enough to handle anything as they should be dormant. I don't understand how any plants, much less prairie plants can be dormant at this stage of the growing season.

Last week I ordered 12 tomato, pepper and ground cherry transplants from SSE, and they arrived today in excellent shape.

The transplants themselves are robust and healthy. I ordered these from SSE because it was pretty late and other places had already sold out of the transplants I wanted, but next year SSE will be my first choice.
