The communication and responsiveness from Dollar Seed was wonderful! And of course you canít beat the price and size of their seed packets- theyíre just perfect for a typical home gardener in my opinion. (Order 8098)

Great handling of the order even during a major pandemic. Only problem was with the Detroit USPS in handling packages. Otherwise, a very good impression. Hope the seeds sprout as well as the responses from this supplier!!

I've just started getting into gardening (hydroponics), and heard about DollarSeed as a great place to get seeds. I definitely concur, now, that they are not only a great deal, but are quality seeds! No germination issues whatsoever and no signs of any other problems so far. Looking forward to becoming a regular customer. Thank you!

This was my first time ordering but I'll definitely be ordering again! I got 45 different varieties of seeds, some of which I'd been wanting to buy for a few years and some of which I'd never heard of! I live in an apartment and gardening is super important for me when it comes to staying positive and happy which is why it was extra nice that a complimentary packet of seeds was included! Some of the seeds have already germinated (which is a lot quicker than other companies I've gotten seeds from). I was super happy with my experience and can't wait to order more seeds in a few months!

I ADORE this company. David and his wife are the absolute sweetest. I always receive a written note with my purchases, and you can speak to them directly.
I have bought from them several times, and each time, the seed has been fresh and viable, even for finicky germinators like celery and okra. And the amounts you get are always a little more than they say you will! More expensive specialty seeds will be fewer per packet, but this makes sense with a fixed price. Just look at the numbers. I also always recieve a free packet of seeds as well with my orders. Usually this has been lettuces, which is fine by me as I can sprinkle them between slower growing veggies for cover- we've gotten plenty of salad from the freebies alone! And my most recent was lima beans, which my dad is excited about.
When I ordered for the second time, I got a thank you and a pen too, which was cute.
From their extremely direct service (you can talk to the owner yourself!) to the very fast shipping and dedication to protecting pollinators, healthy non-GMO seeds, and community outreach, these guys are the real deal. Can't recommend enough.

I love ordering from Dollar Seed! I've made 3 orders that have all been shipped quickly and were packaged in well labelled Ziploc bags. The germination rate is always great, I got 100% for most seeds. Always a reasonable price for a very generous amount of seeds.

My only hope for the company is that they expand their catalog especially for flowers as they continue to grow. They do have a very nice variety of veggies and herbs. Keep up the great work, I'm sure I'll be back for more soon.

The seeds I ordered arrived fairly quickly and most have germinated very well. Only ones that didn't germinate were soybeans which can be difficult to germinate anyway. I didn't have a single soybean germinate even after soaking for a long time in a warm area. Will keep trying. Everything else I've ordered has had good germination so far.

Website enabled quick, efficient searching and ordering. I was notified by email when my order was filled and shipped, and it arrived quickly. I am pleased with this experience. Especially with the generosity of number of seeds in the package for just $1. Wonderful.

One thing I should note for the vendor; there is an inkstamp on the invoice with a url on it; that 'tinyurl' address no longer works/ doesn't go to where it should.

Thanks for a good experience! If I remember, I will try to return here to update with how germination went. :)

I don't have a lot of money to spend on seeds, and here in FL, our growing seasons are reversed from the rest of the country. By the time I got around to looking for seeds, they were gone out of the dollar stores and even the big box stores. I was looking online for "cheap seeds" and found Dollar Seed, who just happened to be having a half-price sale. I ordered as much as I could afford, which wasn't much, trust me. I think I spent less than $6 total with postage. The seeds arrived very quickly, which in my city is a miracle as we don't have the best postal service here. The seeds were so perfectly clean and well-packaged that not one was damaged in shipping, plus the amounts of each seed were very generous. I had just bought a package of Burpee seeds for more than twice the price and only got 5 seeds in the pack (none of which sprouted), so the generous portions were much appreciated. I over-planted the seeds, expecting a low germination rate but BOY! Was I ever wrong! Almost every seed germinated and I was giving away plants like crazy, to the joy of my gardening friends.

I've since moved, and I wanted some new varieties for my new garden. I went onto the site one night and AGAIN there was a sale! Like $1 a pack isn't cheap enough! I found their Tomato Sampler pack, and wonder if wonders, it had Cherokee Purple in it! I had wanted some of these, but all the places I found them were so expensive and postage was so high. I don't need but a couple of plants for my tiny garden, so the 10-seed sampler pack was more than sufficient. I'll also be able to try the Mortgage Lifter and Great White, two more I had wanted to try. Since that was on sale too, I got 10 varieties with 10 seeds each for less than $2! Again, I spent less than $10 total with postage and I was sent a bonus pack of Marketmore cucumbers with almost 300 seeds in it! My friends again are ecstatic about all that I have to share, and are vowing they will be buying from Dollar Seed from now on.

Anytime I have a question, my emails are answered quickly. I am so pleased with this company, I wrote a blog post recommending them, and am constantly praising them on social media. If you have not used Dollar Seed, you really should.

This company is amazing. I couldn't quit smiling when I opened my package! I of course, received what I'd ordered, and quickly I might also add. But they took the time to hand sign from the woman who'd filled my order, a Leah Shafer, and that in and of itself is something that really surprised me! I really appreciated that personal touch! I order seeds from alot of different companies and also from some of my favorite You Tube gardening personalities that also sell their own seeds. So for a seed company to stand out in the crowd is something I won't easily forget! You guys went way above and beyond in filling my 5 packet, $4.50 order! I mean, it was a measley little order! And you even threw in a really nice imprinted ink pen with a flashlight in the top of it, how cool is that? I love pens and really really like the nice ones with extra gadgets, lol. (yeah I'm easily amused, it's the little things that thrill me these days, lol) But getting back to this company....on top of signing in hand, the order form, and including a magnet for my fridge, (although it didn't get that far, I slapped it right were I see it every day, on the metal surrounding my desk here :) ) AND they also included an extra freebie packet of seeds, not just flower seeds, it's food seeds! Broccoli, to be exact! I mean, they're giving me free food! That amazes me! Flowers, yeah, they're fine and all that, but I'm old and on SSI, and really have to budget my pennies to make it from month to month, and these people gave me FREE seeds to grow my own food! Think about that everyone, that's majorly cool! To them it might be a minor nice thing to do, but to me, that's major niceness! I mean, we're talking a Pen, A Magnet (really pretty magnet to be exact!) and a full packet of FREE Broccoli seeds, as well as hand signing by the person who filled the order! It just boggles my mind that I have to deal with so much complete incompetence with insurance companies and doctors and nurses lately and yet a little dollar seed company, who I've only spent $4.50 in seeds, gives me all this extra, for free! Just because they are so nice! I'm still shaking my head, it's such a wonderful surprise. Just when I thought this whole world was going to hell in a handbasket (as my granny used to say) and now I get this amazing surprise that there is still a company in this world that gives a damn! All I can say, is thank you thank you thank you! I WILL be coming back for more and more and more! AMAZING!!!!!

We have a vacation home on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia Canada and it can be difficult to get what we need in terms of gardening things (we live in Chicago which is much better). Luckily Dollar Seeds now ships to Canada and they are SO cheap you can afford to "experiment"!

Placing my order was easy, I received confirmation of my order, and received seeds within a week.

The prices and amount of seeds are great! They came packaged in plastic zippered bags, which makes it nice to reseal and keep moisture away from seeds. The germination rate is posted on the labels, which is a plus to know.

I do hope great success for this online store, and hope they can increase the selection of seeds available to purchase.

The biggest find was 50 comfrey seeds for $1! Unbeatable.

This company was SUCH A FIND! Not only do they offer inexpensive, non-gmo seeds, but I love that I can buy small quantities of lots of different seeds. I hate spending $3-5 for a package of seeds when I only need enough for an 8 foot row; the rest end up tossed. I've ordered from them several times: the orders come very quickly, in good shape, accurate and the seeds have good germination. Good company.

I have to say, at first I was a bit worried because when I checked if my order had shipped on there web site the status never changed from processing to shipped. Reading the reviews before hand I knew it was a small business so I was patient.

That being said... came through. My order arrived six days later! I was excited because of the positive feedback the company received. The seeds came packaged in nice zip lock bags and they looked fresh and healthy. I made a raised garden bed about three week prior and it was ready for planting as it was the second week of April and this is my first vegetable garden I thought I may have missed peak planting time. I planted the seeds the evening I received them.

It's six days after planting and... I have lettuce sprouts popping out already!!! I have to tell you I have no clue how to plant vegetables, and like I said this is my first garden but so far, with these beautiful seeds I'm very excited to see how the rest of the veggies I planted do.

All in all, if you are a first time gardener buy your seeds from and make your first experience a good one like I'm having so far.

Thank You,!

Very satisfied in four ways:
1. Very fast packing & shipping, received in TX from NY.
2. Honest shipping costs, unlike many companies who add an artificially high shipping cost at the end of filling out an order.
3. Simple, clearly marked packaging rather than fancy seed envelopes.
4. Check their seed sales. My tomato assortment included interesting varieties that will be fun to try.

After two years of a garden that got blight I knew it was time to get away from burpee. My tomatoes would get nice and big and almost over night be dead from blight. I knew that I had to change something. So I looked for a more local distribution of seeds that I knew could grow in Western New York.

So I started the seeds in March and by may it was planting time. What we got for seeds was more in each bag then we thought we'd get. The germination rates for the seed was stellar.

By June our plants were doing great, tomatoes getting big, corn almost knee high already and cucumbers growing like weeds! Well June 23rd I was on my motorcycle going to work at 4 45am and I hit a deer. I was found in the middle of the road, severe head trauma and really screwed up. Yes I was wearing a helmet and it kinda did it's job. When the medics showed up they immediately called for a helo because I need to get to an icu. Both local helos were busy so they had to wait 20 minutes for the next one to get there. Needles to say I spent 11 days in a coma and 30 days overall at the hospital. Broke my shoulder blades and the bone behind your ear connected to the skull.

How does this tie in? My girlfriend worked 13 hour shifts at another hospital and then drove a half hour to go see me and then half hour home. So nobody was home to take care of the garden. Not weed it or anything. When I came home on July 23rd I was amazed by our garden. Picking cucumbers was semi hard for me but I picked over 100 cucumbers by the end of August. Corn was ready by the end of August and we had pumpkins in September. Peas and beans were done quick and given to the chicken when they were checked on one day. We had well over 300 tomatoes grow. Made the best salsa and spaghetti sauce I've ever had.

With very little input our garden our garden did terrific. The seed is everything you wanted from the store bought seed, but way cheaper and tastier!

This is my second season with Dollar Seed. Met them on Twitter. Have found the company to be fast, reliable, inexpensive. Good selection of seed - always improving what's available. Great instructions and how-to pages. Didn't have any problems with the seeds last year, no complaints from the receipients (gifted many seeds). Where I got to see the results, they were great (herbs, leafy veggies). Excited about trying them again this winter for my indoor garden.
