Ferry-Morse seeds?

I'm curious of the opinions of Ferry-Morse seeds. I've only had experience so far with seeds from Botanical Interests and Burpee.

It's probably not good to go with a national home improvement store over a gardering/nursery store, but I noticed that Lowe's now features Ferry-Morse seeds instead of Burpee. The since "1856"(?) made them look somewhat impressive; i.e. that they've been around awhile and maybe could be reliable.

I was about to plant some of their seeds, but came upon some negative reviews (and neutral ones as well), that made the seeds look less-than-desirable. Maybe they've made changes for the worse lately, and the quality has gone downhill?

I buy some Ferry-Morse seeds at a local independent nursery and have never had a problem with them. As long as the seeds aren't exposed to extreme temps they should be fine. I won't buy any seeds from one nursery here that keeps them in an outdoor environment where it's very humid.

Every year, it seems I find something on a Ferry Morse rack that I have room for. They've done well.
