This was my first year ordering from DollarSeed. I was looking for a low cost way to buy the seeds I wanted for our garden and came across their site after seeing recommendations in a group conversation. I found their site very easy to navigate and ordering was very easy. The seeds arrived very quickly which was impressive giving that I ordered during the busy season. Everything was very well packaged. I am very happy with my purchase and look forward to buying from them again!

Ordered 4 days before Christmas and still got my seeds in 7 days. Shipping cost was very reasonable. They threw in an extra pack of seeds which was a nice touch. Seeds looked very healthy. I will report back on the germination rate.

I don't have a lot of money to spend on seeds, and here in FL, our growing seasons are reversed from the rest of the country. By the time I got around to looking for seeds, they were gone out of the dollar stores and even the big box stores. I was looking online for "cheap seeds" and found Dollar Seed, who just happened to be having a half-price sale. I ordered as much as I could afford, which wasn't much, trust me. I think I spent less than $6 total with postage. The seeds arrived very quickly, which in my city is a miracle as we don't have the best postal service here. The seeds were so perfectly clean and well-packaged that not one was damaged in shipping, plus the amounts of each seed were very generous. I had just bought a package of Burpee seeds for more than twice the price and only got 5 seeds in the pack (none of which sprouted), so the generous portions were much appreciated. I over-planted the seeds, expecting a low germination rate but BOY! Was I ever wrong! Almost every seed germinated and I was giving away plants like crazy, to the joy of my gardening friends.

My first time ordering from this company, I was very pleased with my order, ziploc packaging, labeling and shipping time. Site does not have ALOT of flowers seeds which is my main interest, but I was able to find 10+ that I wanted and shipping cost was very reasonable. I hope they will add more flower seeds to their offerings.

I just received my package from my online order at dollarseeds.com. I'm not a woman who is easily impressed, let me just say that right now. So, for me to say I'm whoppingly impressed, is something that doesn't ever come out of my mouth. So there is no mistake here....I'M WHOPPINGLY IMPRESSED!!!!

OK here goes! I am in graduate school...interpretation( EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS IN MY BUDGET).

The seeds fit all of my criteria and they ARE affordable. Thank-you Thank-you Thank-you dollar seed!!!

We have a vacation home on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia Canada and it can be difficult to get what we need in terms of gardening things (we live in Chicago which is much better). Luckily Dollar Seeds now ships to Canada and they are SO cheap you can afford to "experiment"! Don't know how they stay in business but always a fantastic bargain and include free seeds with every order.

Oh! I forgot to add that the shipping price was VERY reasonable and posted in their information prior to ordering. I paid a total of $2.50 for shipping.

This company was SUCH A FIND! Not only do they offer inexpensive, non-gmo seeds, but I love that I can buy small quantities of lots of different seeds. I hate spending $3-5 for a package of seeds when I only need enough for an 8 foot row; the rest end up tossed. I've ordered from them several times: the orders come very quickly, in good shape, accurate and the seeds have good germination. Good company.

After two years of a garden that got blight I knew it was time to get away from burpee. My tomatoes would get nice and big and almost over night be dead from blight. I knew that I had to change something. So I looked for a more local distribution of seeds that I knew could grow in Western New York.

I tried to contact Dollar Seed through email, facebook, webform for a few questions regarding their products. Never heard back. Facebook page is periodically updated but they don't seem to care at all. I like their prices but I'm irked to order from a company that is not accessible.

I purchased a few packs of seeds last fall from DollarSeed. I planted them in my winter sowing containers in January. Guess what, I found sprouts today, the first sprouts out of 100+ containers, and they are the Patriotic Coneflower Mix that I purchased from DollarSeed. (A mix of red, white, and blue coneflowers.) The other varieties that I ordered, Mammoth Sunflower and Blood flower seeds I will sow here in a month when it warms up a bit. Pleased with the company and my seeds.

This is my second season with Dollar Seed. Met them on Twitter. Have found the company to be fast, reliable, inexpensive. Good selection of seed - always improving what's available. Great instructions and how-to pages. Didn't have any problems with the seeds last year, no complaints from the receipients (gifted many seeds). Where I got to see the results, they were great (herbs, leafy veggies). Excited about trying them again this winter for my indoor garden.

So I've been on the search for quality seeds at a budget price for a while. Nice to see that every one feels this company has quality customer service straight up. But has any one actually had any SUCCESS with their seeds yet?

That was kind of unfair. We have been selling seeds since 2010, and no one has said word one about our seeds not growing. In fact, we had a complaint recently regarding the germination rate of our garlic chives, and proved that it is better than stated on the package as we receive them. 95% to be exact. We are a small seed house, so our seeds are always fresh, unlike the large corporations that save seeds from year to year. In fact, we donate all seeds packaged for any particular year to the Cornell Cooperative Outreach Program to teach school aged children to learn sustainable living practices."

So, I searched all of the places I usually buy seed from locally for the brand of seeds that I have purchased for about a decade now. None of them seem to be carrying them this year! In any case, I refuse to purchase Burpee seeds, which is what is polluting the seed racks in every strore I went to! In nearly 20 years of gardening, Burpee seeds have never performed very well for me, and I don't want to pay $1-$3.50 for 10 or 15 seeds either, especially when my garden is massive!

Okay, this was a fair complaint about seed counts for those packages that contain large seeds. My aim is to provide the typical home gardener with more than enough seeds for their home gardens. In this regard, I have changed the way our vegetable seeds can be purchased. Now you can buy a simple package aimed at the home gardener, or my all new bulk packs which contain 5.5 times more seeds at a savings. Thank you for your support, I take all customers seriously, and will do my best to address any issues."

This one baffled me. I contacted Paypal in regards to this complaint, and here is what they said: "Mr. Moffitt, Paypal accepts all major credit cards, bank debit cards, and electronic funds (e Check) transfers. We have enclosed a new graphic for your site that shows the "Blue" American Express card, though all American Express cards are an acceptable form of payment. Thank you for your inquiry. Respectfully, The Paypal Team".

Read about the company in a blog - thought I would try a few seeds - They arrived quickly 5 days including half a weekend. Great prices & I cannot wait to put them into dirt - Dave sent bonus seeds and a sample of fertilizer. Thank you :)

Free seeds are a norm to be expected with every order. I wish I could say the same for the Osmocote fertilizer samples, but that was a limited time offer due to a limited quantity given by the Scott's company. However, every order gets more than just what they order. I am presently enclosing a brochure for Green Prints Magazine, and can send this to anyone for a SASE #10 sized envelope. Just mail your requests to"

I am absolutely impressed with the number of seeds provided for just $1.00!!! Delivery was prompt and I like the way the seeds are packaged and labeled. Thank you so much for the free seeds for ordering. I know I will be ordering again. Now, it's time to go plant some seeds!!!

Ok I have to admit, their site looks like a total scam. Bad graphics and stuff like that, but for a dollar for echinacea seeds, I couldn't pass the chance. The seeds came promptly and came with free seeds. I will definitely order again. Usually i'm turned off by seed companies that charge more for shipping than they do for a packet of seeds, but shipping is cheap here also. Please support this company, cuz i want to do business with this new and growing company for years to come. ;)

Okay, let's take this one step at a time. Yes, my graphics are terrible, and I admit it. Can I do better, probably, but why should I? My goal is to give a quality product, with huge seed counts, for as little money as possible. I'd rather spend my time putting together seeds to meet order demand, than to spend it playing around with graphic programs.

Every good business has to decide at some point in time, that the customer is always right. This one definitely was, and has caused me to re-think the design of the site. You can see where the new site is heading by visiting http://188.8.131.52/. This is just a temporary site, that I honestly believe will relieve these issues. Hired programmers and graphical designers are expensive, but I believe this is money well spent. "
