We here at DollarSeed.com strive hard to make your seed purchases from us as smooth as a walk in the park. Our site has gone through many major upgrades in the past. We work for our customers, because without them, we wouldn't still be here since 2010. Our motto is give the most bang for the buck, and in the descriptions given on our site, you will see the average number of seeds to expect in each package. We changed the Industry by doing that, and now almost every site you visit for your seed needs will tell you the amount of seeds per package rather than some mundane weight which varies widely based on the size and moisture content of the seeds. We also are constantly adding new seeds and have well over 200 varieties available.

Simply put, an overall amazing experience ordering from this company. It's great to support a small business and the prices for the seeds cannot be beat! I have made 2 orders and each arrived quickly. The seeds are nicely packaged and along with them, I received a magnet, a pen and a pack of free seeds! Awesome! I highly recommend this company to anyone who's looking to purchase seeds. :)

First time ordering from this company. I had looked at previous reviews and was amazed at all of the positive reviews. I am not disappointed, shipping was quick although one thing was out of stock they sent back a dollar plus free lettuce seeds plus a pen! How awesome is that! I can't wait till they sprout up. I can honestly say this is why this company has 5 Stars! Stay Healthy ,I can see myself returning to your store. Sandy Smart Cocoa fl

After browsing the Garden Watchdog part of this website and seeing the positive reviews for DollarSeed, I bought several seed packets from the company. I received a confirmation email and got my seeds within a week. I have started several of the received seed packets indoors, and am seeing an exciting burst of initial activity from them. At this early stage, I cannot comment on the long term viability of the plants for producing a crop, but I can definitely comment that DollarSeed seems to be an honest and trustworthy business from all the data I have so far.

Through my search for inexpensive but quality seeds, I came across the DollarSeed website. They have a really good variety of seeds, many things I had never seen before. I was looking to invest in starting my own little seed bank for my family and extended family, so I decided to purchase the "A Lot In The Box Garden Seeds" bulk box of all of the seeds they offer. I was a little worried that I wouldn't get a few of the things I wanted since some items had been showing out of stock, but I was so excited to see most of those things in the box when it arrived. I believe I recieved 235 packets of seeds, which in my opinion is an amazing deal for $150. I have not started any of the seeds yet, but can't wait to get them growing. They arrived quickly and all of the packaging is nice and neat. I am currently trying to get them all organized in my seed box. I imagine I will be shopping here again in the future (if I ever run out of seeds lol). I have already told several people about this site, because I am honestly pleased with my experience thus far. I look forward to seeing how the DollarSeed business grows (and of course my garden as well)! (My order number is #8111).

I am so glad I found a source of good, clean seeds that appeals to my pocketbook while giving me the small amount of seeds I need for my home garden. I hate spending several dollars on too many seeds in the bigger packets and end up throwing most of them out. I just received my order, so I cannot comment on the germination rate of the seeds, but they all look clean and great and I canít wait to plant them in my garden.

This was my first time ordering seeds online. Normally I go to the store and pay the overpriced fee for a few small packets. I am highly impressed with the speed in which my order came in, the quality of the seeds, the packing of each type of see, and the quantity of the seeds I received. My children are very excited to plant everything today, and have already given me a list of other vegetables and fruits they want to grow. My days off buying a few seeds hidden away in paper wrappers are over. Thank you Dollar seed for making possible for us to grow a vast variety of food.

I found this site through a google search and was super impressed. They have a great selection at unbelievable prices. I just got my order, 8288, in and I am so excited. I love that the seeds came in plastic bags. Paper packets never truly reseal and there is always a chance for moisture to ruin them. I also loved the handwritten thank you at the bottom.

I received my 2nd order (#8161) a few days ago and am just as happy as I was with my first order. The seeds from my first order are sprouting well. The first time I ordered they were out of a few seeds I really wanted. I checked other sites but their prices plus shipping prices were ridiculous for one packet of seeds. I decided to check back on Dollarseed about a week after my first order came and they had restocked! I had only intended on ordering one package of seeds but ended up ordering 15 packages instead! You cannot beat the price, the shipping is very reasonable (under $3) and the seeds are starting to sprout well. This is definitely my new first choice for seeds and I will be sure to order earlier next year. I also loved the see-through packaging, it allowed me to make videos for my pre-k class (online teaching for the rest of the school year) and show them the different seeds, and do some comparing and contrasting, without having to take every seed out of the package!

I found this great place in my FB gardening site. Positive experience all the way around. From ordering, in which descriptions are very informative, to purchasing, which is very easy. My seeds arrived today and I ordered them only a few days ago! There were also some surprises in my package which made me feel like a valued customer and not just another number. My only regret is that I didn't order far more seeds! That, however, is easily remedied! I will happily purchase here again!

My order number is 8093. I found this site when I was looking for inexpensive seeds online since we are supposed to stay at home and the local garden centers are ridiculously packed with people. I did not want to pay $7-10 per package to other websites and stumbled upon DollarSeed. I went through their inventory and found everything I wanted plus several others that I'm excited to try. My order only took a couple of days to process, which is amazing in the current pandemic climate. They emailed me when it was shipped and included a tracking number. I received the seeds quickly, plus an extra to try, along with a great magnet and pen. I am very impressed with the service, speed, and seeds, and cannot wait to reap my harvest this summer. I will go here first next time I want any type of seed. Shipping is extremely reasonable and you get a lot of seeds for a dollar. Great company, and I will be back as my gardening expands. Absolutely recommend!

Order # 8088. I found DollarSeed searching for online seeds to avoid going to a store. Many large companies were sold out. I searched highly rated seed souces and found DollarSeed. I ordered 29 different flower and vegetable seeds. There was a large variety IN STOCK. They arrived quickly all in ziplock clearly labeled bags. The resealable bags are a great convenience. It is also nice to be able to see the seeds in the clear bags. DollarSeed responded to my email question the next day. My entire order arrived with a clear invoice and personal thank you, Pen and magnet too. I would highly recommend purchasing from this company. I will be ordering my seeds from now on. $1.00 seeds. Clear, resealable bags. Large variety. Easy to use website. Excellent service. Thank you. Janet Adams-Cultrara

I've just started getting into gardening (hydroponics), and heard about DollarSeed as a great place to get seeds. I definitely concur, now, that they are not only a great deal, but are quality seeds! No germination issues whatsoever and no signs of any other problems so far. Looking forward to becoming a regular customer. Thank you!

This was our first time ordering from Dollar Seed. We made a small order (29 packets of standard seed) to check them out. Our package arrived in record time (3 or 4 days after ordering). The seeds were well packaged and look clean. They also sent a package of free seed, a pen and a nice little magnet for us to remember them by. We are happy with them so far! I will try to update this spring with information about the germination rates.

This was my first time ordering but I'll definitely be ordering again! I got 45 different varieties of seeds, some of which I'd been wanting to buy for a few years and some of which I'd never heard of! I live in an apartment and gardening is super important for me when it comes to staying positive and happy which is why it was extra nice that a complimentary packet of seeds was included! Some of the seeds have already germinated (which is a lot quicker than other companies I've gotten seeds from). I was super happy with my experience and can't wait to order more seeds in a few months!

I ADORE this company. David and his wife are the absolute sweetest. I always receive a written note with my purchases, and you can speak to them directly.
I have bought from them several times, and each time, the seed has been fresh and viable, even for finicky germinators like celery and okra. And the amounts you get are always a little more than they say you will! More expensive specialty seeds will be fewer per packet, but this makes sense with a fixed price. Just look at the numbers. I also always recieve a free packet of seeds as well with my orders. Usually this has been lettuces, which is fine by me as I can sprinkle them between slower growing veggies for cover- we've gotten plenty of salad from the freebies alone! And my most recent was lima beans, which my dad is excited about.
When I ordered for the second time, I got a thank you and a pen too, which was cute.
From their extremely direct service (you can talk to the owner yourself!) to the very fast shipping and dedication to protecting pollinators, healthy non-GMO seeds, and community outreach, these guys are the real deal. Can't recommend enough.

I love ordering from Dollar Seed! I've made 3 orders that have all been shipped quickly and were packaged in well labelled Ziploc bags. The germination rate is always great, I got 100% for most seeds. Always a reasonable price for a very generous amount of seeds.

My only hope for the company is that they expand their catalog especially for flowers as they continue to grow. They do have a very nice variety of veggies and herbs. Keep up the great work, I'm sure I'll be back for more soon.

The seeds I ordered arrived fairly quickly and most have germinated very well. Only ones that didn't germinate were soybeans which can be difficult to germinate anyway. I didn't have a single soybean germinate even after soaking for a long time in a warm area. Will keep trying. Everything else I've ordered has had good germination so far.

Website enabled quick, efficient searching and ordering. I was notified by email when my order was filled and shipped, and it arrived quickly. I am pleased with this experience. Especially with the generosity of number of seeds in the package for just $1. Wonderful.

One thing I should note for the vendor; there is an inkstamp on the invoice with a url on it; that 'tinyurl' address no longer works/ doesn't go to where it should.

Thanks for a good experience! If I remember, I will try to return here to update with how germination went. :)
