I just received my first order from Swallowtail, and was amazed! I decided to order from them, due to the great reviews here, and I couldn't have been happier! I placed my order very late on Sunday, and they were shipped on Monday! I had a short list of about 10 things to order, but noticed that there was free shipping on orders over $40. I shouldn't have read that! My order far exceeded that amount, but I was thrilled anyway!

The seeds were very nicely packaged. Each envelope has the plant information, and then planting instructions. The seeds were then placed either in a plastic bag inside of the little envelope, or in the case of very tiny seeds, they were put in a glassine envelope, and then in a plastic bag, and then in another envelope! Fragile seeds were sent in a small tube, which really impressed me.

I was also extremely impressed with the variety of seeds that they carry, and their prices are outstanding. Their site is also great, giving you information on each plant, and how to plant it. I loved their list of deer resistant plants too. I bought a lot off of that list, and saw some things that I wouldn't have thought to buy.

I really love this company!

I needed to update this. As of today, I love this company even more!

As mentioned above, I put in a large order recently. I never compared what my invoice said, against the packets of seeds, because there were too many to bother with. I recognized all of the names on the packets, and figured it was all good. Imagine my surprise today when I received another package from Swallowtail in the mail, even though I hadn't ordered anything! It said that they possibly sent me one package of incorrect seeds, and had enclosed the packet that I should have received! They also refunded my money for this package! I was shocked, and very happy! They wrote a personal letter, letting me know what the seedlings should look like, in case I had already planted the other package, and noticed that they didn't look correct.

I think I need to place another order with them. I am so happy to have found such an honest and ethical company to deal with!

Swallowtail Garden Seeds is always prompt and accurate. I always get excellent germination from their seeds. Check out their Agastache selection. That alone is reason to visit their site.

Oh my gosh! I go crazy with buying flower seeds here. Such a huge selection, great prices, and great service. I have already ordered three times this year and that doesn't include when I placed one order, realized the next day I had missed some things, emailed them to see whether I could add to my order, and they actually emailed me back! I even discovered vegetable seeds here. Imagine that! LOL! Swallowtail Seeds will always be one of my go-to places for seeds,

I always buy too much from Swallowtail! They just have so much to choose. Great customer service. I once called them to ask a question. The woman helping me did not know the answer, but she hopped right on the Internet and got my question answered right away! Once my mom had just submitted an order and realized she forgot some items. She emailed them and the next day they confirmed they could add them to her order. Great germination too.
