The 'Sample Seed Shop' by Remy - excellent service

mary_littlerockar(8a-7b mid Arkansas)November 13, 2009

I just wanted to say a big 'thank you' to whomever posted a notice on one of the forum's regarding this new on-line seed shop.

I love the idea of ordering from a fellow gardener. Here is a photo of my first order from this shop. What a treat. Good number of seeds for an exceptionally fair price and fair shipping costs. The pretty seed packets are clearly marked; she included a complete order invoice and even a bonus packet of flower seed. What could be better!

Thank you, Remy, for such a great buying experience and good luck with your new endeavor.

I know this seed retailer personally and I can tell you that she takes great pride in her business not to mention the fact that she is an exceptional gardener and she is knowledgable about the seeds that she sells. It is so nice to see her get a good review.

I, too, ordered from Remy and she is EXCELLENT! It may have been me that recommended her, Mary, but a lot of people have. I ordered my Salvia subrotunda seeds from her because I could not find them anywhere else - hard to find seeds at very low prices and she always sends a bonus pack, too!

I wanted to chime in with my positive review. I just got my seeds today and am extremely pleased with this vendor. The price for both seed packets and shipping is wonderful plus the bonus pack she includes is a nice touch. The seeds were packaged in a small package within the larger package, something I prefer. Remy is a pleasure to do business with, and I'll definitely be a continually returning customer!

You can also pay with PayPal on her site, another bonus.

From ordering to receipt, probably the quickest and most pleasant online transaction I've ever experienced. I would (more likely, will) order again without hesitation and will surely recommend this site to others. Thanks!

I feel good about my purchase there. It's a business I want to give my business to!

I found good stuff, got good tips, good prices, fast shipping, a human touch.

The notes she writes about her plants are a great resource, and the pictures aren't ones copied from other sites (which are usually not the right cultivar and are ALWAYS tinted to look nicer than they will turn out). I remember seeing her notes saying "it looks more ____ than shown in the picture". LOVE that.

OOOH, thank you for this thread! I just placed an order! I love that she uses non-GMO seeds. Very important as we move into these perilous times.

Hey all. I am a newbie ordering seeds for the first time. I read positive stuff here on The Sample Seed Shop and I ordered and got the seeds super quick. And, a couple of bonus packs and the pack I got seem heavy - yeah! Just wanted to tell her fans that I took their advice. Only complaint is that I got rushed into buying quick because the paypal checkout was about to time out. Oh well, it was probably a good thing for me to stop. Happy to have found this place! I love supporting the smaller companies. Susan

I ordered from her site for the first time this year! What a gorgeous selection of heirloom tomatoes she has! Shipping was fast and the germination rates have been very good. I will order from her every Spring, along with my regular Pine Tree Seeds:)

She must have noticed the kinds of tomatoes I preferred because she sent me free samples of 2 other kinds. When I researched them, they also were the sweet kinds of beefsteaks I adore. That's going above and beyond:)

I found her companies name on the Upstate NY forum here and I'm so thankful I did. I love giving local people my business.

Ordered from Remy for the 2012 growing season - tomato seeds had 100% germination rate! Remy includes free samples on top of what you choose, and makes sure that they are suitable for your growing zone. Browsing the catalog site to read her descriptions gives me hours of pleasure. Amazing selection of heirloom and native varieties. Just ordered again for this year. I loved getting the handwritten seed packets last year & I'm really looking forward to this year's shipment!

I ordered from her too this year and got great service. I had a problem with the cart and my Internet (ordering on a Sunday) and she quickly replied to questions. The seeds came quickly, a bonus too. I'll keep her on my short list for very reasonably priced seeds and service that makes ME smile. :)
