2021 Review – Where to Order Seeds Online


Today I am going to talk about where to order seeds online. It seems I have become a seed hoarder and a collector of seeds. When I go to a local store, I find seeds, or purchasing seeds online, I buy more seeds. You can purchase just about any seeds imaginable. You can buy organic seeds online, heirloom garden seeds, vegetable garden seeds and just about any flower seed you can imagine.

I am going to review, where to order seeds online, for 3 difference online sources. This was a difficult piece to write because I kept getting distracted of all the different seeds I could purchase. I found more seeds I don’t have, imagine that. Let’s get started. I am going to review Botanical Interests, Burpee and Seeds Now.

The Negatives

  • Unable to find negatives
  • Unable to find out how long in business

I was not able to find out how long Seeds Now has been in business.  I would assume it’s a fairly new company with only 27 reviews but they were all mostly positive.

My Final Thoughts

In my review I find any of these 3 places are all great to order garden seeds online.  I have actually purchased seeds from all 3 places and never had any troubles.

I am actually looking at purchasing some live plants from Burpee, and of course I found some seeds to get to add to my cottage garden project this spring.

Purchasing at any of these places would be a personal preference.  If you are looking for more then just seeds then I would recommend Burpee, they also have gardening supplies too.

Hope you found this post informative and helpful.  Please leave a comment below.

  1. Thank you for giving us these different options. Of all these, I have only tried Seeds Now and I love them. They have a great selection and friendly service! SeedsNow is the main place I buy my seeds for the season because they have such a huge selection! And I also have to commend their app. It’s really easy to use.

    • Hi Paolo,

      Thank you for letting me know that Seeds Now is a great company to buy seeds too.  They do have a great selection and a seed bank, and if you want a seed of the month club.  I love their big selection too.  Thanks again for your comments.

  2. Thanks for sharing this very useful information.

    I love looking at all the packets of seeds and choosing different mixes of plants and colours for all the different parts of my garden.

    The only problem is that I have had a lot of seeds that haven’t grown for me in the past.  But I think that was my fault in the way I looked after them.

    I love a bargain so thanks for giving me prices to consider, as why pay more for the same thing elsewhere!

    Keep up the good work.

    • Hi Geoff, 

      Thank you for your comments.  When growing seeds the soil needs to be warm and moist.  It can’t dry out or the seeds won’t grow.  Try using some plastic wrap over the pot the seeds are in to make a greenhouse affect and and in a sunny window or grow light.  Some seeds can take up to 2 weeks to germinate.  Seeds do take some attention when growing.

  3. Thank you for the review on how to order seeds online, You have provided enough information for anyone to make informed decisions when they are ordering seeds online. It is something that I really never thought of but it really looks like a very viable option than in store. The three places you have recommended have a great track record for their services to be trusted. 

    • Hi Bogadi,

      Thank you for your comments.  I have used all 3 of these companies with no issues.  It’s kind of fun starting your own seeds.  Please share my website to other fellow gardeners.
