I hope this thread helps many whom look at where to get seeds. We have our choices based on personal experiences, and I believe it would be great if we list our top 3-5 seed vendors we use. After the list, please feel free to list why. After the next 30 days, Ill tally the list, and put them down in order from top first to fifth. We can then say that those are most reputable as choices for getting seeds heading into 2019 Grow season. I believe that if its a hot, we continue this each winter so that the next Grow season we can know with confidence which vendors we can count on, even though so many exists. The idea is to come to the conclusion, the choices of those that participate and wish to state vendors they believe most in for this Grow year.
This review list will end February 6th, 2019. The top five will be known by 10th.
This is not to say that there are not good vendors, this is just based on those of you sharing your list.

For me:

1: White Hot Peppers
2: Refining Fire Chiles
3: Fatalii
4: Chili Riot
5: Caribbean Garden

I believe these to be my top five for this Grow season because my seeds have high germination. The seeds have been healthy. They have good promotions. Some websites are good. Some throw in seeds that will be used.

Despite using only two vendors, I'm happy enough with both of them to put them here.

 

1: White Hot Peppers
I get the impression Justin is an under-promise and over-deliver kind of person. Very communicative and on the ball, and both clear and up-front about potential issues or other factors that might impact orders.
 
2: Refining Fire Chiles
While Jim doesn't seem to be as talkative, he's also no-nonsense and up-front with his business. I've had nothing but good luck with his seeds, and his promotions can be pretty amazing.

Dint understand why pucker butt seeds take 1-2 weeks for delivery,especially inside the same country! They could step it up a notch.

What vendors do you feel most confident with when buying from or with seeds that have germinated?

Here's my list of trusted seed venders (in no particular order):

 

 Refining Fire Chiles

 Mojo Pepper

 Juanitos Peppers

 Peppers By Mail

 Tomato Growers Supply (only hybrid annuums)

 Johnny's Seed (only hybrid annuums)

 

I've purchased multiple times/years from all the above and have always been pleased with the results.

 

While I've never purchased pepper seeds from them, let me also put in a plug for Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. If you live in the south-eastern US, then you should at least take a look at their website. They are an excellent source of vegetable seeds and gardening info.
