"Dang, dang, dang. One week ago I received my long-anticipted vegetable seeds (from a competitor). Two days ago I received your seed catalog and I'm in love. Your selection is great, and your prices jumped out at me. In a world of seed packets often going for $4 or more, your prices are so fair...Steven, January 2008"
"...By the way, those radish seed from you, the German big radishes did wonderful and again I was their best customer. When I have some good rye bread, cool butter, a big radish sliced thin and salted, with good wheat beer and a summer breeze in the shade--take the phone off the hook and enjoy...at least that is what I do...Alex, January 2008"
"Hi! I just got your catalog from the mail box and I started looking at it before I ate dinner. Big mistake! I ended up ordering too much so I'll just have to plant more...thanks for all the great varieties. My market niche is great taste and I am looking forward to trying your varieties...Mike, Feb 2008"
"Your Harvest Knife is the most versatile tool I have. In the fall I used it for fast removal of tomato vines from cages and cuke and bean vines from trellises...Joan, March 2008"
"I just ordered seeds from you for my father and he is thrilled with them. We have been looking for [this] pol bean for years and so pleased that you carry it. Thanks so much for all your effort to bring us the best of seeds...Jackie, March 2008"
"You folks are wonderful to deal with--I have been passing your website around to all my gardening friends and to the various lists I am on.
"I am really impressed with the foil packaging on many of the seeds--I am guessing that this method would keep the seeds for far longer than the typical expiration date (I am a believer in long term storage of your favorite seed varieties)...Paulette, March 2008"
"Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful seed I get from you every year. I look forward to the catalogue every Spring and my family has enjoyed great produce from all over the world. Keep up the great work and I hope everyone has a great year...John, March 2008"
"Thank you for the very quick service replacing the Kamo Eggplant seeds. The packet you sent first was empty. The new seeds arrived and have been planted. Everything is now in order. Your service matches your quality and variety. Keep up the good work!...Cheryl, April 2008"
"I just want to say that the germination rates for the seeds I ordered have been amazing. Better than anyone else's by far...Thank you very much. Fall garden order coming soon!...Laurie, April 2008"
"I am very happy with your products. I purchased two types of the broccoli raab, eggplant, and bush beans. In three days the broccoli came up, I couldn't believe it. I have purchased seed from [another seed company] and did not have any luck. Also, thanks for having the broccoli raab. It is so hard to find and it is my favorite vegetable. If more people try it I think it would be a great seller...they just don't know what they are missing. Thanks again...Mike, April 2008"
"...I found your website this afternoon and think it's absolutely wonderful! There are types of tomatoes I've never heard of and tons of other veggie-types I've never tried. Also, the seed prices are just great!...Marilyn, July 2008"
"I love Gourmet Seed and will be placing my fall order sometime late this month. I have been very happy with this and my previous orders...now that I know about Gourmet Seed, I wouldn't want to do without you. I love your products and packaging as i am a small specialty market gardener. You have what is in demand in the specialty market...Roxanne, August 2008"
"...an unsolicited review of the Red Russian kale seeds...I planted it in a raised bed 4'x3'. I should mention that it was "new" soil too: topsoil and some peat humus. After this summer year I would be afraid to add fertilizer or compost. it is huge. I stupidly planted fall turnips north of that bed and I can't harvest the leaves fast enough to keep it from shading them. For every leaf I cut, two more grow back, bigger than the one I cut. You might want to mention in the blurb about the kale that they get big. And they are really good as a cut-and-come-again plant. And just as a side-note, it's better-looking than lots of the ornamental kale I've seen... ...the rapa Quarantina that I got from you is doing beautifully...An avid gardener I know says that "the worst tomato from your garden will taste better than the best tomato from the store." The first crop of rapa I harvested was better than the best rapa I've ever had. At 40 days, it's REALLY worth doing successive plantings...Bill August 2008"
"Love your website and the products you sell. You get a lot for your money. I have seeds I ordered from you years ago and they still grow!!!!...Tyrone, September 2008"
"It has been several months since I first purchased seed from your company, and although all of it has been high quality, the Genovese Basil seed I received has unfailingly germinated and produced the more gloriously healthy, beautifully green, wonderfully aromatic plants I've ever seen, let alone grown from seed in my own garden!...Richard, October 2008"
"...This is my 3rd order from you this year. The quality of your seeds is remarkable!...Tabitha, October 2008"
"...I wanted to contact you about the seeds I ordered two days ago. I requested that you mail them the same day (I) ordered them and that is exactly what you did. I received the seeds today! I really appreciate that! You got me out of a bind!...Dave, December 2008"
"Thank you again! You have some of the best products I have found...Tabitha, January 2009"
"...Thanks you have a wonderful selection--we'll tell our friends!...Paul, January 2009"
"great prices, nice catalog...Catherine, February 2009"
"LOVE your selections! and appreciate the generous quantities of seed in a packet...Elizabeth, February 2009"
"Awesome! I sat here at the computer until well after midnight last night making orders, hoping to have them expedited. You are the first to notify me of shipment.
One thing that attracts me to your company is the large seed count per package, in addition to the quality and diversity of varieties.
From my January order I have already transplanted some veggies. Others are sprouting in cardboard egg cartons, drinking water containers, etc. This will be my first year to really try celery, celeriac, etc...Thanks,Ann, March 2009"
"Thank you! Your selection is so appealing it was really hard to narrow it down this much, even though my garden is small...Elizabeth, March 2009"
"We spoke to (an employee) and we want to 'Thank You' for such good help and thanks for being in business...Donna, March 2009"
"...I have ordered before and was pleased with the seeds received last year--keep up the good work...William, March 2009"
"...Those beans [various Italian pole beans] are a big winner for flavor at our farmers markets and bring the best price. (You can) quote me...Paul, March 2009"
"This is my second purchase from this company. Each time my order was shipped promptly and the quality of the products was excellent. I especially like their wide selection of European seed varieties; many can't be found anywhere else...Leslie, March 2009"
"This company has a fabulous assortment of seeds that I have never found elsewhere! They have a good website and catalogue and ship faster than most companies I have dealt with. The large hermetically sealed packages give clear, concise instructions and the packages they send from their Italian sister company have beautiful pictures of the product. I will definitely buy from them again!...Leslie K., March 2009"
"Great catalog seed selection and prices, thank you...Catherine, April 2009"
"Thanks for your good service. I received my order and everything was absolutely to my satisfaction. I will order again...Bill, April 2009"
"WONDERFUL service, wonderful products. Thanks so much. We are very, very happy...I'm sure you will be hearing from us again...Kris, April 2009"
"I am very impressed with the seed selection, quality packaging of individual varieties,and the prompt shipment of the order.I eagerly await the emergence of the seedlings!...Teri, April 2009"
"I appreciate your concern for service. That is what has kept me coming back here for years. And will keep me coming back. I have done a lot of business with you in the past and look forward to doing a lot more in the future...Thanks...Mary, May 2009"
"I never write emails like this, but I HAD to tell you how stupendously wonderful your service is and how much I appreciate it.
I'm across the country from you in PA but my orders get here lightning fast. And jeez, when I look at [another seed company's] seed packets, are they crazy or just incredibly greedy? They offer such miserly amounts of seed!
And I love the fascinating varieties you offer. Other seed companies seem boring compared to yours.
I could go on and on, but it's been a thrill and a joy to have you with me in the garden this year. Very sincerely, Alex, May 2009"
"Gourmet Seed International has a wonderful collection of European seeds that are not easy to find in other places. They are fast and efficient. I will definitely order from them again...Kathleen, May 2009"
"It was the fastest seed delivery I ever experienced. The seeds are excellent quality, some germinated a few days before suggested time. I definitely will buy from this store again...Michelle, June 2009"
"Received my order and I just wanted to tell you that I am really impressed! I have ordered a lot of seeds from all the seed companies and I really must say you guys are truly professionals. Super fast and the packaging is impeccable. Not to mention your selection. Lots of hard to get goodies! I'll be ordering from you again in late winter. Thank you very much...Doug, August 2009"
"I got seeds for the Rossa di Toscana onions from you, and I had wonderful success!! This was the first time I had grown onions from seed, and I was very pleased. I grew them in a raised bed, and added a lot of compost and kept them well weeded. I got lots of huge onions. I will definitely order from you again. Thank you...Richard, October 2009"
"...well thank you for the seeds! :) I'm anxious to try 'em out & will definitely be ordering from you folks again. You have the best packaging I've seen for seeds and my order got here so quickly, I was sincerely very impressed. So thank you for taking the time to package your seeds well and have such fast shipping. Hope you & your families have a wonderful holiday!...Candy, November 2009"
"I just wanted to let you know that your customer service is great...I called you folks and told you about the problem and it was taken care of immediately!...I have ordered seeds from you for years and have NEVER had a problem and I would recommend your company to any of my friends!...Dave, November 2009"
