"The sorriest and worst company I have ever dealt with, this company does not carry about the customer but only about ripping people off. They do not stand behind their products they sell and they give you the run around when there is an problem like seeds failing to germinate. I have been gardening for more than 20 years but never have done business with this sorry company until this year but now I know to never do business with this sorry company."

"HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE.... this is the WORST customer service I have ever had... I don't have time to write all the detail but have include my actual chat with their customer service..

You are now chatting with 'Terri'

Terri: Hello. How may I assist you today?

Jacki Ostgard: I am so frustrated, I tried to order the topaz ice plants yesterday for $2.50 but when I entered in the free shipping code it said it didn't exist

Jacki Ostgard: now I missed the $2.50 deal and the code is STIll not working

Terri: They are $2.99 and you can sign up for our newsletter on the website and use code PK22333 for free shipping on orders of $40 or more.

Jacki Ostgard: They were $2.50 yesterday it was a special daily deal. I did sign up for your news letter already but it says on your front banner to use FREESHIP39

Terri: FREESHIP39 ended yesterday. Use PK22333 and they are 2.99 now which is still a great deal.

Jacki Ostgard: I did try to use that code yesterday and it wouldn't accept it. I am ordering 12-15 plants so even though it it's only .50 it adds up when order that many plants...

Terri: What is the order sub-total?

Jacki Ostgard: 39.83 at this point, I may add more

Jacki Ostgard: I just wanted to do the chat as soon as I could

Terri: You can use the PK22333 when you get to $40 for the free shipping.

Jacki Ostgard: So, you can't do anything to make up the $6 more I am going to have to pay because I missed the deal yesterday?

Jacki Ostgard: $6 or more

Terri: What do you mean $6 more?

Jacki Ostgard: $6 or more, depending on how many plant I order, I am for sure getting 12, since your system didn't' accept the code I was using yesterday I now have to pay $6 more...

Terri: Unfortunately, that promotion is over and the system won't recognize the code anymore.

Jacki Ostgard: Well, can you give me a credit, gift card or something? I guess I was hoping for a little better customer service. Usually in a situation like this a professional company would do something in return to make up for the inconvenience of their system error...

Terri: Did you call yesterday when the code didn't work?

Jacki Ostgard: No, it was 10:30pm at night.....

Terri: As a customer courtesy, I will give you free shipping.

Jacki Ostgard: Here is the deal either you are a company that understands the value of good customer service or your not... I don't have time to keep going rounds with you. I would have expected you to offer to make this right, from the beginning... Thank you for you assistance, I will contact your management and post a review online

Your chat transcript will be sent to jacki.o@allstate.com at the end of your chat

"I order alot of stuff online and have always had excellent service and product. Until now..Park Seed is by far the worst company I have ever dealt with. There customer service is terrible! I emailed them with an issue and never heard back, so I had to called them. I had one plant delivered that looked terrible and it ended up dying and they act like I killed it. I was offered a "store" credit that I can use in 24-48hrs after the fact but after dealing with the guy on the phone I just felt I should walk away and get a new one someplace else. I don't feel like they stand behind there product."

"I was looking on line for a good company to help me move away from trash like Gurney or Burpee. You order, they send what THEY want. And Burpee has pesticides in their seeds. Wonder how that tastes....
Park seed APPEARS to be a solid reputable company. THEY ARE CHEATS like the others.
I ordered 4 packs o seed and some strawberries. $21.00 in seed just before 7am on 3/31. At 8:58 I receive a notice of 20% off for 3 days. I look @ my order. "Please contact us through info@ parkseed.com". Received notification that I will be contacted within 48 hours. I called on the 49th hour(My lunch on 4/02). Was told that the seed packet with "free shipping on this seed packet", which was THE ONLY (Crookneck yellow squash)Product they had, disqualified me for the 20%!!! Also, I had called after the order was shipped(remember-by their request, I was to be contacted within 48 hours). OBTW, The inclusion of the seed packet, or the exclusion of the packet in computing my shipping charges, DID NOT CHANGE MY SHIPPING as indicated.
Sooooooo Park Seed please follow your profit line.......
20% of $21.00 is 42 cents. You lost a $43.00 order for 42 cents. I have been to my CC bank and will fight the charges. I have told everyone I garden with, how Park Seed cheats their customers. I will continue to TELL EVERYONE I see or know what a cheating company Park Seed is.
In my opinion Park Seed is a despicable cheating company of stupid people. Mainiacdave

"I ordered three Park Seed 60-cell bio domes and was delivered on Jan. 6. Along with a variety of seeds on 1/6/15, order and was delivered Jan 16. I followed all the instructions, on January 16 when the seeds first arrived, and the plants began to grow beautifully. Around a week ago, though, a few seedlings began to grow mold. I threw away the moldy ones, and opened the vents to allow circulation prevent more from growing mold. Today, I checked on the plants and they were ALL growing mold. I've lost the entire batch of 180 seedlings in plugs. I called and talked to someone at Park Seed's horticulture department, who suggested various ways that I might save a similar batch in the future. He suggested opening the vents any time I notice condensation, or even removing the dome entirely for a few hours, but it was too late for this suggestion by the time I received it, and I had followed the provided instructions accurately. He also suggested a bleach solution that would kill the mold and leave the plants, but I am growing my herbs organically for delicate use in tinctures, and I would not put bleach on my plants. I have previously been a loyal Park Seed customer, but I will not order from them again. I am very dissatisfied with my purchase. I will grow my next set of seedlings the traditional way, in soil. The email: info@parkseed.com does not even work. "

"I had 2 orders from them so far. A fig plant and another time three blueberries and a cranberry plant. The packaging were safe and the plants came looking healthy and in great condition. This is my limited experience, but so far it is good and I wouldn't hesitate to order again."

" I too ordered seeds from Park Seed. I took advantage of the free shipping. It was over $55.00 in seeds. I was looking for seeds for a certain plant and I found it here. I bought 6 packs of the seeds (2 each for colors available) and was going to divide the seeds between friends. There was supposed to be 25 seeds in each pack. When I received the order, I started to divide the seeds up and there was only 12 seeds in one pack. After trying to divide the 6 packs of seeds, I was short 32 seeds. So that alerted me to the other seeds I purchased, and every package was at least 8 seeds short. Might not seem like a lot but I paid for the count on the package and did not expected to be cheated out of seeds. I have contacted customer service twice and it's the same answer. We will contact you within 48 hour. It has been a month and nothing. They keep sending me emails on their sales and this truly strikes a nerve. Very disappointing for a company that use to be great, returned questions and concerns within 24 hours and did not cheat you out of seeds."

"Placed a nearly $300.00 order for annual plants in April. Third week of May, I had no plants. Sent e-mails, called company twice. Finally they assured me my orders would arrive May 30th or the 31st. On the 31st, I watched for the UPS truck to stop, but it drove by - didn't stop. I again called Park Seed, asked to speak to the supervisor. I explained my plants never arrived. She checked all my orders & then told me I WOULD NOT RECEIVE THEM - something about having problems with the supplier. I was dumb founded & furious that I had not NEVER received an e-mail from them explaining the situation. That was my first & last time dealing with Park Seed. NEVER AGAIN! I will continue to buy local."

"Park Seed is some kind of scam.

I ordered my seeds online almost a month ago, and they still haven't arrived.

17 days after I ordered my seeds, I emailed customer service and was assured that they would be shipped in "a few days". After "a few days," I decided to call, and spoke with very polite customer service rep. She was very apologetic and assured me that she personally would see that the seeds would ship asap. A week later, (thats 25 days after I ordered, I still have no seeds).

The great irony in this is that this isn't your typical internet scam. They answer emails and answer the phone, and they are extremely polite and compassionate about the my frustrations. The problem is, the product never arrives.

"Ordered about 70 dollars of seed pots, a greenhouse dome, and seeds. 10 days later it still had not shipped. I contacted their online chat, and was told that one item was on back order till next week, so they were holding the entire order. She apologized and said she would get the order out asap less the back order item, which would ship separately. I asked for an upgrade in shipping due to the delay, she said OK and would upgrade shipping to priority.
After I spoke with her, I checked the online catalog which showed that the item she said was on back order for a another week was listed as being "ready to ship" Lie number one. They don't keep their inventory updated to the online store.
At the end of the business day, I saw that the order still had not shipped. Lie Number two.
I sent a request to cancel the entire order for a total refund. I will be contacting my CC company asap. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. It's too bad since I had ordered from them a couple of years ago and had great service.

"I placed an online order just shy of $50 in early January, 2012. While back online Jan 21st (too check status of my order) I noticed a free shipping offer for orders over $50-I contacted their online customer service and inquired if I could purchase a couple additional items to bring my total up in order too take advantage of the free shipping and was told I could. On the second order I left directions too combine with original order and apply free shipping code. They processed the second order and shipped it with it's own shipping charges. When I found this out I immediately contacted their customer service (Oxymorons) Their story was that since the order had shipped they could not combine invoices. Even after I told them that their online rep had told me I could. Their next angle was that my original order was placed before the free shipping offer and therefore ineligible. Evidently the free shipping offer ran only a couple days or hours! I pointed out that they had shipped the second order before the first and requested refunds of the shipping fees-they refused. I will be refusing both orders-we'll see how long it takes them to credit my charge card. In the past I have purchased their seeds and had been happy with selection/performance. They have now lost yet another customer thru their inept customer (dis)service."

"Be warned this company is practicing unethical (possibly illegal) practices holding your money while they never plan to ship your merchandise & then taking forever to refund your credit card. **** Buyer Beware ****

I ordered some seeds on 3/2/09 on the internet. It informed me that they would ship in the next 2 weeks. When 2 weeks passed I checked the online status and it said "shipping soon". I called them and they said it was back-ordered and would ship Friday. 10 weeks later they are still saying the same thing. They did ship the "free gift" right away so that they could charge me the shipping and order fee right away while I endlessly wait for the product I really want. When I called on 5/18/09 to cancel my order since I was never going to receive it they said it would take 30 days for my credit card to be refunded. Can you believe this for a product that was never shipped. I am notifying Visa of this practice and encourage everyone to do the same. The best way to prevent a company like this from operating is to keep Visa/MC from allowing them to use their credit cards.

"Ordered seeds from Park Seeds on January 10th. It's March 19th and only 1 of the 3 packages of seeds have arrived. 3 emails to Park Seeds have gone unresponded to (in my opinion, not responding to emails is a major indicator of the quality of the company). I've called twice, and each time they've said the seeds will ship in 2 weeks, but that has turned out to not be the case. They are not very responsive or caring. Would not recommend. "

"Ordered product from this company (plants) and after waiting for some time had to contact them to check status. They quickly charged the credit card and took the money, but didn't expect the plants for months. Asked to cancel the order and for a refund. They indicated my credit card would be credited within 30 days. On day 31 after still receiving no credit I tried to contact Park. At this point they just failed to respond. Stay away from these crooks."
