Just received my first order from Jung Seeds and Plants and I'm very pleased. It was a small order of some hard-to-find echinacea (well, I had trouble finding them!) and they were quite reasonably priced. They also included some free seeds. Nice, healthy looking little plants.

I certainly won't hesitate to order from them again!

Very solid company. They always stand behind their merchandise. I have been a faithful customer for over 30 years. No frills, no nonsense, no fuss; just good quality seeds and plants.

I've been buying seeds from Jung for many years and I have always been very satisfied. This is one of the best seed companies to do business with. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Good quality, generous quantities, good prices.

We have purchased from Jung for over 20 years. The only time we had a complaint -- an azalea we had purchased in a late season sale that didn't make it over the winter -- they replaced it the next spring, no questions asked, with a gift bush thrown in.

People often confuse this company with the Jung brothers (related around 2 generations back) who ran a large agri-business with grains linked with GMO products. This is a different branch of the family. While they do offer the non-organic products many gardeners still want, they also openly endorse and offer many of the products organic growers want and need. They help sponsor organizations like the Seed-savers Exchange, and even more importantly to my mind, when a venture capitalist bought some companies -- Totally Tomatoes, Vermont Bean Seeds, McClure & Zimmermann, among others, for no reason but to squeeze as much money out of them without investing any in -- Jung bought them all and has slowly worked to return each company to its original mission, searching out lost seed banks, etc.

They have been successful at what they do -- and thank God, or they wouldn't have had the money to bring these companies back from the brink. The family continues to own it and if you can take the time to google them, you will find they continue to keep their own hands in the dirt and I don't think you'll find a photo of them partying with the rich and famous on the Riviera...

Not the fanciest, not a specialty gardening site, Jung Seeds and Plants is just a down-to-earth garden retailer with a good selection of gardening seeds, plants, and sundry other gardening-related items.

I haven't bought plants from Jung's, but I have bought seeds. I have had great success with their seeds -- good germination rates. Some of the seeds offered here are cheaper than at other sites. For example, the new Santa Cruz Sunset begonia is about a dollar cheaper for the same amount of seeds than at some other sites.

My order was shipped within a week of placement, which is good.

One year I was missing some seeds in my order. I called customer service, and within a few days received the seeds and an apology -- as well as four packs of bonus seeds. Not bad!
