Iíd ordered from them before because of their selection of tomato seeds, which germinated well. Some of their other vegetable seeds did not or produced puny seedlings.

I have ordered from this company for a few years. The germination rates have always been poor but I let it slide because the seeds were cheap enough. Although once the germination on a pack of tomatoes was 10%! And I have a heating mat and lights. The last straw was the Opalka tomatoes I ordered from them. Not Opalkas (I've grown them for years, my favorite paste!)

As much as I wanted to like their products, I probably won't order here again, though I have about $7 in credit here. Why? Two reasons, not including the very long delivery time (ordered in early January, received seeds in mid- March. If I started seeds early indoors, this would be a third problem). As it was, I ordered some very tiny flower seeds (impatiens) which should have had 100 seeds per packet. I got 4-6 seeds per packet, because they were packaged so badly that the seeds probably fell out during shipping. Got a credit for those from a very reluctant customer service person (I was outside the 45 day limit). The other problem was near zero germination rates for a wide variety of vegetables. I thought maybe rodents had eaten the planted beans, etc. but the beans and other seeds were still in the ground, either hard and dried out, or rotted. I'm an experienced gardener and I've grown vegetables in some bad climates, but I have never seen anything like this. Didn't bother to ask for a refund for the veg seeds as it's well past their limit. I just won't come back.

I just received a message in my email that my seeds shipped and should arrive in 3 days (Saturday the 16th). Still not a positive rating because again, 8 weeks isn't enough time to have them ready, so I might as well not even plant them this year because they won't be ready for the garden until at least June!

Germination very poor !!! Their packs even state 50% germination rate, of that its even worse. (that's not stated in the catalog) One pack had no seeds, the count on seed content is off. Not worth the disappointment. If you don't notify them within 45 days your out of luck...Save your $$$

Last year was my first time ordering from this company. I am a seasoned gardener, so this was not my first rodeo. I thought I'd try them since their prices were lower than most other companies. That said, here are some of my results:

While I mostly had good germination from the order I placed in 2017, I had rather low germination on one variety of sweet corn and ZERO germination on the seedless watermelons, of which I had ordered several packets. I e-mailed the company at least four times using the e-mail address listed on their website, beginning in September, 2017, hoping for a replacement of the watermelon seeds in 2018. However, I did not receive any reply or acknowledgement whatsoever, either to accommodate me or to refuse me. I find this unacceptably rude, and will probably never order again.

It took more than 2 weeks to receive my seeds order. In addition, seeds 'n such shipped eggplant seeds with (as shown on packet) only 65% germination rate. Some tomatoes (including cherry tomato seed packets with few seeds) were labeled at 70 or 75% germination, which is much lower than Fedco, Johnny's of Jung packets I've previously puchased. The low germination rates were not noted in the catalog or online, I would've purchased elsewhere if it had been.
