Please always check this post for important current site information before ordering.
ONE: Make sure your correct mailing address and correct email is on your order before submitting! Thank you.
Orders made now are averaging 1-4 days to go out. (Late day and Sunday orders should be considered the following day’s order.)
All orders through May 3rd have shipped.
If you think you should have received a shipped email and have not, please contact us at SampleSeeds@yahoo.com
TWO: If you have not ordered before, we recommend you read the
General INFO, SHIPPING, Etc page before ordering.
For INTERNATIONAL Orders please also read
the Shipping to FOREIGN COUNTRIES Page before ordering.
THREE: If you find any errors, broken “Add to Cart” buttons, links, etc, please let us know, SampleSeeds@yahoo.com
FOUR: To know about new items, in stock updates, contests, and other gardening stuff, “Like” us on FaceBook. Make sure “Get Notifications“ is checked (hover over the Liked area to see it) when there so hopefully you will see our posts more often since it seem FB is not showing all our posts to many people because we don’t pay to promote them. Or just check up on the page periodically.
We have also started a new gardening group there, Seedaholics Garden Group, please join if you like sharing pictures and chatting about gardening!
We also now on Twitter. Follow Remy @SampleSeedShop.
FIVE: iPads (definitely)and iMacs (maybe, give it a try,) especially when using Safari as a browser, seem to be losing orders i.e. you put 10 things in your cart, and then your cart goes poof! Even a few PC users have trouble. We can NOT fix the problem The cart pages are controlled by PayPal and not us. We have contacted PayPal. They so far have not figured out the problem. Don’t keep trying to make an order over and over. If it isn’t working for you, it isn’t working.
So either try a different browser, or wait until you can use a computer (Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome as a browser works best,) or copy and paste your items to an email, and send it to SampleSeeds@yahoo.com (I know PITA, but think of it like the old days when you had to hand write out an order and mail it) and we will bill you the appropriate charge.
Thank you for your patience! We appreciate your business.
I’m happy to offer you sample size, quality seed at an inexpensive price. Even at such good prices, you will get bonus seeds with your order! And you might notice some of my sample sizes contain more seed or the same amount of seeds in packets at other sites.
How is that being done?
~The seed packets are not fancy printed ones, just great seed in simple packets. The internet has such a wealth of knowledge about any plant you wish to grow; everything is a Google search away. If a search doesn’t help, I’m here to answer your questions too.
~There is no paper catalog. I know some people like to peruse a paper catalog at their leisure. I’ve found the site does print nicely, so you can make your own catalog.
~I work on this web site myself. All photos are taken by me unless otherwise noted. (All photos taken by me, be they good or bad, are my property. You can not use them without my permission.)
~My office is in my home, so there is less overhead cost.
I hope you find some interesting new seeds for your garden on this site. Please know that varieties will change throughout the growing season, so check back again soon.
To get all of the information about the seeds, shipping, other policies, please go to the General Info and Shipping Page.
