Shipping, Returns & Privacy

RETURNS

Although seeds are not returnable due to purity and quality issues, your satisfaction is very important to us.  If you have a problem with your seeds please call or email us and we'll make it right.  We promise!

Other non-parishable merchandise may be returnable for store credit or a refund.  Certain specific return policies are available on the item description page.

If you are a returning customer and have a problem with an item on any order, simply login to your account, click the "View Messages" link under the My Account menu and send us a message with the details.  You can also send an email to support at seattleseed dot com.

Our seeds are packed both by hand and by machines that are over 100 years old.  They are true American-made workhorses, but just like you and I, they sometimes make mistakes.  If you ever receive a packet that has too few seeds in it or is under weight, just let us know and we'll send a replacement immediately.

SHIPPING

Most packages are sent via the United States Postal Service, and we strive to make it easy to get free or very affordable shipping.  If you only need a couple of packs, we ship via the Postal Service and keep costs as low as possible. Note that there are some extra shipping charges on products that are heavy or oddly shaped.

When you place an order, we will provide shipping cost based on your cart contents.  We ship very quickly depending on which items you order.  Some items go out as early as the same day, but we always try to ship within 2-3 days at the very latest.  Shipping is mainly via USPS and all shipping materials are 100% recyclable.  If a tracking number is available for your order, it will be provided to you.

LOCAL PICKUP

Our company store in Seattle is open all year long.  You are welcome to purchase seeds in person, as well as hundreds of other unique gifts and houseplants and very reasonable prices.
