As a new gardener who just bought a house in Florida I was super stoked to come across the Seedman website. Here was a source full of the exotic and unusual plants I imagined filling my yard with, along with the traditional garden offerings. Unlike so many other venues that show only a glitzy photo and vague, glamorous plant descriptions, Seedman has poured its 25 years of experience into their catalog, sharing a ton of practical information on the plants and links to even more. I love that, so I did the noob gardener thing and ordered 15 different seed packs. 😛 As soon as I ordered I got a confirmation, and it shipped out the very next day. It arrived with no discrepancies, neatly packed into ziplocs labeled with name, source, and sprouting instructions, and a promise to replace any seeds that don’t germinate, which seems pretty generous. They even sent along garden markers for the pots, which is really thoughtful. The seeds themselves look good, clean and whole without mold or decay. I’ll report back on their germination. If you search for reviews about Seedman online you might see a lot of negative ones that don’t really belong to them. There’s a company out there called Seedsman that sells cannabis and generates irate customers who leave cranky reviews. Unfortunately a lot of them leave out that important second S and the review gets attributed to the Seedman company.

I ordered seeds for cordyline rubra, homalomena lindenii and gryphon begonias in early August.

Germination rates have not been great.

Followed on packet instructions for each type of seeds.

Out of the 13 different seed packets ordered so far only 1 packet has germinated.

I have been growing plants and trees from seeds for years and this is the lowest (or completely absent of growth) germination rate that I have ever experienced.

My germination rating will follow next year after sowing. On May 29th, 2012, LadyAssassin changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:

To my surprise and delight, they responded personally straightaway and they immediately mailed the seeds by Priority Mail! I received them all in short order, and will be planting them today (just as soon as I express my appreciation here).

I am involved with “The Great Sunflower Project” growing Lemon Queen Sunflowers to record the number of bees that visit the flowerheads.

The free seeds sent to me by the sunflower project arrived broken and mashed by the postal machines. I thought I should go ahead and get more seeds in case the ones I received were to damaged to germinate. So I ordered from This seller in MS.

I went ahead and sow the seeds sent to me by the sunflower project while waiting for my order to arrive from MS, in hopes that some would grow.

Six seeds arrived from the MS. seller in a resonable amount of time and looked to be in good condition. I sowed them in my other garden as soon as they arrived.

Most of the broken seeds from the sunflower project germinated. (at least 75%) and none of the MS. seeds germinated. (0 %)

It left me wondering why my first batch of seeds from the sunflower project germinated and are now 6-7 ft. tall and the seeds from this MS. seller did not germinate at all.

After reading the other reviews, I now believe it was the poor quality seeds and not me. It looks as if it is pretty much hit or miss with this seller. has 72 reviews (14 negative, 44 positive and 14 neutral) at the Garden Watchdog.

Seedman com is a family owned and operated seed business serving home gardeners, University botanical departments and research facilities in the USA and several countries abroad. As of March 2020, we now only ship seeds within the USA, we do not ship outside the USA any longer.
We have been in the seed business for over twenty five years.

We are located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We carefully adhere to all state and federal seed laws. We test all of our seeds on a regular basis. Even though many of our seed packets are sold by weight, we still try to give an approximate seed count on our website so that you can determine how many seeds you are getting.

We ship the majority of our orders out the day after the order is received ( orders that are received on Friday normally ship Monday morning ). We will E-mail the customer if an order will be delayed for any reason.

We have a simple satisfaction guarantee on every seed we offer. If a seed fails to germinate properly ( and it does happen when you are dealing with a diverse line of seeds like we offer, but not often, our last analysis indicated we have a customer with a seed failure about 1 in 3,185 packs of seeds we send out ), we will ask if you prefer a replacement or refund, simple as that. If you prefer a replacement, we will make any suggestions or tips we have that might make the second attempt successful.

Our business future depends on happy, repeat customers, we cannot survive without YOU!

The Safe Seed Pledge

We pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately people and communities.
