Tom’s Too Damn Hot
XXX Reimer Seeds do not buy from them XXX
Reimer Seeds is an online seed selling company. Before I get into details I will tell you their product quality is extremely poor and their customer service is even worst, please share so that other gardeners can avoid wasting their time and money in trying to grow their low quality products.
This year I searched everywhere to find Chocolate Scotch Bonnet seeds to grow, the only place I found in North America other than Amazon was Reimer, which was unfortunate, I placed an order for the Chocolate Scotch Bonnets (10 seeds at a cost of $4.50 USD), since I was ordering I also bought 10 Ghost Red Pepper seeds @ $4.50 USD and Yellow Scotch Bonnet “Strain 6” seeds 20 for $3.50 USD, I bought the Yellow Bonnets because I grew others last year from another seed supplier with great success and wanted to see the difference in strains, total order with shipping for 40 seeds was $35 CAD, not a big deal I have paid much more for rare seeds.
22 days after seed planting I and up with 100% germination on Chocolate Bonnets which is great, 52% on Ghost Peppers, low but acceptable as most Hot Peppers over 800,000 SHU are hard to grow, but the Yellow Bonnets have zero germination on 20 seeds, my own Yellow Bonnets seeds have germinated at 100%.Total germination rate from Reimer seeds 53% way below any acceptable average on 40 plantings.
So I figure I’ll drop Reimer a line just to let them know about the germination problems, I include pictures of my greenhouse setup, tray germinations side by side, statistical data and my experience level in growing plants, I did not request a credit, it was only a heads up on possible product problem. Within a day I get back an email response in the base of a form email with about 10 questions on how I am growing my seeds. ok sounds like fun, I’ll impress them with my knowledge, I fill out their form and send it back with a lot of other details. Two days later I get another Form email with excerpts cut right from their website which basically states I am not growing their seeds correctly. REALLY!
This company is a farce and scam and should be avoided, I would have done better buying seeds on Amazon. So in conclusion of this rant I ask you all never to buy seeds from a company called Reimer and let as many other gardeners know the same. bottom line they are 100% dicks.
