I ordered several varieties of flower and herb seeds from Stokes last winter. Good service, everything germinated as expected. The only disappointments:

1. The envelopes tended to smudge and fall apart if they got damp (that's a plus when you're recycling an empty envelope, but not so good if you still have seeds in there!)
2. I felt the number of seeds per packet was a bit lower than packets from other places I ordered from.

But all things considered, I will order from them again, now that I know what to expect. Very good variety and a really nice catalog..

I ordered from Stokes again this year. Their website is slow and painful to navigate, although once I figured out their "quick order" option to list multiple items at once, it was much smoother. I found they were much less expensive on some things than other retailers, and they were one of the few seed companies with double impatiens at a reasonable price. The order came in promptly, and was exactly what I ordered. They'll stay on my "short list".

I've ordered a couple of times from Stokes. A bit pricey but they have many of the latest F1 hybrids. I also like the fact that many of the flowers can be ordered in a single color opposed to mixed colors. I'd recommend at least sending for the catalog. It has some great germination information.

I have ordered from this company for over 5 years now. The seed is very fresh and the germination is very good. I use their (free) catalogue as a reference for seed germination and as a planting guide. Very detailed in their descriptions. Their shipping and service is excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

I am a master gardener, last home on 5 garden tours. I love to garden and have ordered a lot, Stokes has great quantity, price and information and good quality and germination. I start 100 or so flats of flowers every year and [I'm] always happy.

Since Stokes doesn't illustrate all its varieties, customers might think it offers fewer varieties than it actually does. The catalog is a valuable seed-starting manual, well-worn by me at the end of every seed-starting season. I am delighted by the detail of the seed-starting instructions and by John Gale's no-nonsense prose.

I have ordered from Stokes several times. The seed germination is excellent and service great. I only wish the selection was bigger because of the quality I can expect from them.

I've ordered from Stokes for years. They've always filled every order perfectly. The seed is good. The selection of varieties in their catalog is usually more comprehensive than almost any other company's. Their prices are almost always the lowest.

Stokes is our "old reliable" here in northern New England - good selection, excellent seed quality, and their breeding is geared for the northeast!

Another winner - I planted tithonia, love lies bleeding and both white and red nicotania seeds purchased from Stokes indoors this last winter and mothered them along until spring. Into the ground they went - and what a delight they were - in spite of drought conditions this summer. The love lies bleeding had to be staked up -they reached almost 7 ft long at their peak - and the birds are enjoying the seed trails now. The tithonia were also whacking big - over 8 ft high - another favorite so far this fall with the chickadees and finches. The nicotania bloomed strong and well all summer and fall - a hard frost finally killed them.

Stokes sells a great selection of seeds, plants, shrubs and some gardening tools. I have ordered from them in the last year and have found the service and quality very good. They are also very quick in filling any back orders that may occur.
