Horrible Customer Service
By: Eric Rudberg    (Aug 15, 2014)


If I could rank this company less than "1 Star" I would. They have absolutely horrible customer service and I am not impressed with their product. 2 out of 3 the plants I ordered were dead as could be when they arrived. I followed their published directions in terms of "Care of Plants Upon Arrival" and still never recovered. I understand things happen in the mail and plants die but what has been EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING has been the complete lack of customer service. I've written them 3 times over the past 2 months with no response. I like supporting small companies like this and was excited to do so but I will never order from them again. Now being so late in the year, I'm not even sure if it's wise to plant replacement bushes. I will probably wait till next spring and you can be sure I will purchase them from another source.

So far so GREAT !!
By: Jennifer Looy    (Feb 18, 2014)

I just received my seeds (leeks and lavender). They arrived in a padded envelope in a timely manner. The seeds have instructions on sowing. I look forward to giving them a try this season. Thank you Organic Heirloom Plants.

Bad Seeds
By: Muammer Ekin    (Jul 14, 2013)

I purchased 5 packs, I planted them as soon as I received. Not even single one of them germinated. I will never buy seeds from these producers again.

All of our seeds are freshly harvested year after year and we use all of the varieties ourselves for continued sustainability. All of our seed has a 92% or more germination rate.We do understand that not all home growers have the knowledge of how to properly germinate seed, thus, we cannot be responsible for everyones growing techniques or experience. We would appreciate that all customers contact us for seed germination instructions if you are unsure on how to germinate seed. Thank you all for your consideration and support!

We're huge fans of cooking with herbs in our house. We were looking for a traditional basil to use for pesto and to spice up tomato dishes. There is limited space in our apartment so we have a container garden on our sunny deck. We grew this basil from seed last year and it was delicious! Smells amazing too.

Leaves are full and green. Came back quickly after cuttings, survived well outside during those chilly fall mornings, and went strong in a sunny window indoors through the winter. I'll definitely grow more again this spring.

Poor business practices
By: Carmel Oberdorfer    (Jun 25, 2012)

I have had a very poor experience with this farm. I ordered plants from them in March and paid for hem at that time. I contacted them 2 weeks after ordering because I had not received acknowledgement of my order. They said my order would be shipped in May. May came and went, no plants. I contacted them again, and was told that they had a freeze and would refund me for the plants. It's been a month now and still no refund!

They will not even respond to my emails now.

Very poor business practices!

This customer is a 'hate stalker' and has not only gotten his refund but also his plants. These comments were made AFTER he received his plants. BEWARE OF THIS BUYER SELLERS!

Not terribly flavorful but huge yield
By: Julie Parsonnet    (Jun 2, 2012)

I have never seen so many tomatoes on one plant. Too bad they don't taste very good. The plant was hardy, though.

Very Happy with Products
By: Anna Gilman    (Feb 28, 2011)

I was glad that I ordered from Wendy. She returned my e-mail promptly and my products were shipped quickly. The quality of the herbs that I bought are great for making healthy tonics and teas. Thanks Wendy it was a pleasure doing business with you and I will recommend you to my friends.
