Wonderful! Seeds were here in less than a week! They have some hard-to-find things and it's so fun to try these heirlooms. Can't wait til it's time to plant my garden.

I love Heirloom Seeds, they have been my main source for veggie seed for going on 8 years now. I have limited space and therefore mostly direct sow. Their germination rate is fantastic and they are always sending extras with your order - free seed, instructions, etc - all tailored to what you order.

Heirloom Seeds has been my vegetable garden choice for my church and personal garden for years. Every transaction that I have had with them has been very successful. When I order seeds, they get here in record time with some free seeds. Their seeds are top quality and have about a 98% sprouting outcome. The heirloom seeds help me support one of my personal missions of eco, historical and healthful action. I have taught many people and children about heirloom seeds. On-line Heirloom Seeds has the best historical and descriptive information on ALL of the plant seeds that they sell. They will always be my first choice for vegetable seeds.

Ordered on a thursday after lunch. Order arrived monday. With after lunch orders on the same side of the coast it is rare that they ship the same day, so I was rather impressed by the speed. The order was for seeds only. The seeds were packaged well. The price was very reasonable and seed packets were of the expected size. Similar seed varieties at baker creek and sse would have been at least double the price as here and packets are of similar size. I ordered from baker creek and sse one week prior to this order and have not recieved their shipments yet. Also of note is that 6 free seed packets were included, the six packets were really cool varieties and not something common or generic. The 6 free packets, i figured were worth a couple of bucks a piece. Very satisfied, packaged well, fast shipping, free stuff, etc., etc.. If the seeds grow, and I expect them too, this transaction will be the best I have ever had.

I forgot to mentiion something important. They included instructions. Several pages. One for tomato and pepper germination, one general sheet for vegetables one for flowers, and someone took the time to highlight the varieties I had selected from the charts they provided. I think that is almost unbelievable and wonderful.

I ordered from Heirloom Seeds for the first time this year. I placed my order on Monday, and received my shipment on Saturday, and I live half-way across the country. I will definitely order again next year. Love their selection and prompt service.

I've ordered a number of times from Heirloom Seeds in recent years. Not only is the service prompt and the packaging solid but - most importantly - the seeds are of second-to-none quality. They include a free packet of seeds and their selection of the free packet seems to be based on what they can figure out about your interests based upon what you have ordered. In other words, these folks give individualized attention to each order. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

My 6 year old daughter and I planted some seeds indoors in peat pots on a Sunday, on Tuesday I took a peek and some were already starting to sprout! I was very pleased with the order and the speed in which I got my seeds. I know I will order from this company again in the Spring.

Received seeds very quickly. Germination was over 85% on over 100 tomato seeds. They continue to do well after transplanting. Easy to deal with, good prices, and terrific seeds.

II love these seeds. I have ordered from them for the last two years and been incredibly pleased. The seeds arrived quickley, the germination and planting information on their website was helpful to me, their prices were reasonable and I think their overall selection is the best I've found.

My only complaint would be the outrageously successful germination and growth of the tomato seeds. I ended up with so many healthy seedlings last year I had to take plants to local community gardens to find homes for them all!

I ordered lots of lettuce seed from this company this Spring and all performed well except the Salad Bowl variety which simply refused to germinate. I explained my problem to Heirloom Seeds and they were back to me in a matter of hours. They promptly sent another Salad Bowl packet plus another lettuce variety. This second packet turned out to be no better than the first one. I contacted them again to let them know about the bad seed, explaining that I thought they had done all that I could expect of them. Within a few days, I received a packet of a different lettuce seed from them in the mail. Their customer service is the fastest I've seen yet, and they genuinely cared about my problem. They've definetly got my business from here on out!

Fast service, very good selection, and reasonable prices on all their seeds. Received free packets of seed with my order.

Baker Creek, Select Seeds, Seeds of Change, and Park Seeds all have sent me free packets of seeds with my orders. Also, The Fragrant Path has sent free seeds with my order for years. A very nice company to do business with. Although I don't expect it, I really appreciate this added bonus by these companies.

Johnny's and Cook's Garden did not send free packets.

This year was the third time ordering from heirloom seeds. Every order has been excellent. I placed a large seed order this year and within the week I had my seeds.
Germination rate is very good as is the price of seed packets. Very pleased in every way and I highly recommend them!

This is one of the four companies I order from. Since I only plant heirloom veggies, I look for the companies that supply variety in old favorites. If I can't get what I want from here, I go to one of the other three companies. Always prompt service and never had a problem with germination. Their website is up dated and easy to navigate.

Great seed company, I order most all of my seeds here. You can find varieties at Heirloom that not available elsewhere, and just about every seed planted becomes a little duds!!

I placed a huge order with heirloom seeds in April. I was pleased with shipping, they are fast! The germination? All but perhaps one seed out of each pack germinated. There were some at 100 percent. I would say that theirs is the best germination rate I've found.
Cannot go wrong with this company from my own experience. I will order again from this supplier.

Absolutely wonderful company!

A nice selection of heirloom seeds, great service, fast shipping.

Best of all, everything I planted is coming along nicely and the tomatoes look especially wonderful, can't wait to try them in a few weeks.

Will gladly order from them again. :)

I just received my order from Heirloom Seeds, within 7 days of mailing them my $20.00 order with a personal check. I found them on the web searching for a source for 'Purple Cherokee' tomatoes. In addition to having my order filled promptly and correctly, I thought their prices were really good--most flowers and herbs were $1.25 per pack. The tomato seeds were only $1.50 per pack--typically for a smaller quantity of seeds than you'd typically get, 20 per pack I think. I actually find this to be to my benefit, after having to find homes for over 150 excess tomato seedlings last year. I also liked the variety--I found almost all of my 'cottage garden' must-haves here. Plus some I didn't expect, and a free gift of seeds. Hopefully the germination rate will be as high quality as their service.
