VERY IMPORTANT NOTICES! read ALL before ordering, thank you.

Please always check this post for important current site information.

ONE: Because of going to the NATIONAL HEIRLOOM EXPO, Orders placed now will be delayed until the week 0f the 16th!
Please remember if you order late in the day to consider the day count as starting the next day. We ONLY send SHIPPED emails. Your PayPal receipt is your proof of purchase.
If you think you should have received a SHIPPED email and have not, please contact us at

TWO: The POSTAL RATES went up!! I had to revamp the price of packages. Please see the General Info Page.
INTERNATIONAL Customers, please see the rates on the Shipping to FOREIGN Countries Page.

THREE:Make sure your correct mailing address and correct email are on your order before submitting!  Thank you.

FOUR: If you have not ordered before, we recommend you read ALL of the
General INFO, SHIPPING, Etc page before ordering.

For INTERNATIONAL Orders please also read
the Shipping to FOREIGN COUNTRIES Page before ordering.
FIVE: If you have TWITTER, follow us @TheSampleSeedShop.
Or Like Us on FaceBook. We do post about updates on Facebook.

SIX: If you find any errors, brokenAdd to Cart” buttons,  links, etc, please let us know,
(I haven’t had complaints about this in awhile so it may have been fixed) 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.
Some people find that if they click on one of the “View Cart” buttons, their order is still there.
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 (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.
