Have ordered seeds from them 4 times and have always been happy.

They do not have all the weird and esoteric stuff you can find some places, but they do offer a lot out of the ordinary and things not readily found elsewhere.

The owner takes a personal interest in all of their offerings and she goes out of her way to meet the needs of avid seed collectors.

Will buy there again and suggest you check out their site - a first-class outfit.

It's not polite to give my own company a rave review, but I want everyone to know we are passionate about providing seeds you can't find elsewhere. If there's something you want and can't find (including information), please let me know. I love tracking things down!

How do you feel about hybrid vegetables and GMO's? New hybrids are coming up that are non-GMO and some look pretty tempting. You won't be able to save seeds, but farmers, not laboratories, did the tweaking. What do you all think?

What do you wish came with your seeds? More growing information? More seeds? I assume most gardeners want lots of variety, not lots of the same tomato plant, but maybe you share or trade the excess. And I figure most of you know how to plant cucumbers and have Google on speed dial.

Ask and thou shalt receive! Have a good season.

They carry many hard-to-locate seeds and couple this with quick shipping and great customer service. I placed an order back in 2012 on 7/3 and had it by 7/7. All of the seed appeared to be good and the germination rates were definitely in the high range. Smart Seeds even sent an "extra" as a gift. A very interesting store -- it is worth checking out.

SmartSeeds offers quite a collection of unusual exotic seeds as well as heirloom herbs and vegetables. Their new website is very pretty and easy to use. It's fun to just noodle around looking at all the uncommon flowering trees and vines, weird desert plants, and out-of-the-ordinary veggies.

Their seeds have always been very fresh and are shipped quickly. Some rarities are a challenge for beginners, but you are so warned and germination directions are thoughtful and thorough. Collectors of obscure plants will have fun in this virtual playground.Thumb of 2012-09-08/seedforbrains/663f03
