Yeah its pretty good, can get a lot of plants and seeds for all seasons so it fits my needs quite well.
Ordered several tomato plants. 2 months into growing the tomatoes would start turning red but then would rot out before full red. When I contacted them their response was "eat the good part and throw out the rotten part". What an idiotic response.
I ordered about 25 varieties of seeds for my veg garden about 3 years ago. I am looking at a healthy and thriving garden yet again this year. They germinate well, and are very thrifty plants. Thanks Burpee, my family has been buying from you for three generations now.
It took over 2 weeks just to send the plant and when I called to find out why I had not received it they did not have any explanation - just that it has not sent. And when it FINALLY came they were SO SMALL, NOT worth $10 and SOOOO DRY!!! I don't know if it will live. I will NOT order from Burpees again and removed my name from their mailing list!!!
I was looking for a certain garlic which Burpee said they had in stock. So I decided to order all my seeds from them. They charged me for everything right away but sent me less then half my order including no garlic. I waited a month still nothing. I called the company and was told the garlic was out of stock. I said well they charged my credit card for it and several other things and I have gotten no notification. I guy tells me they just discovered that day (which was a Sunday) that the garlic was out of stock. I said well you charged my credit card and told me it was in stock. He just kept telling me it was not their fault. I told him the only reason I ordered from them was because of the garlic that they said was in stock and they charged me for over a month ago. and I wanted someone to know I was not happy. She said well he could not do that because it was not the companies fault This went on for about 10 minutes I told him I was never buying from their company again and he again said but why its not our fault. I hung up and would have left it at that. because I hate writing reviews. Well yesterday I decided to plant the corn seed I bought. I would have never known this but I bought a package of 200 corn seeds and would have normally planned in the ground but needed the corn early for an event I am holding and needed all 200 seeds. I bought 200 pots to plant them in. After I had planted 100 seeds I thought I'm not going to have enough seeds. Well sure enough there was only 170 seeds. I have to have the 200 and they need to be planted today to make sure I have the corn I need so now I have to run out and buy them somewhere else even though I bought them from Burpee. I would call them back but Im sure that is not their fault either. I didn't count the other seeds so I don't know if I got them or not. I suggest if you want what your order get it somewhere else. Since nothing is their fault
I have been purchasing Burpee products and plants since 1968. I have always had good results and their service is great. I highly recommend this company.
Good site to buy live garden plants. Took time as they changed their site and I had to create a new account, but once that was finished, clear sailing! All arrived in good shape and rooted well. I am on the same coast. Transaction without issues.
