Now that the growing season is coming to an end...How did you like their seeds? I'm thinking about ordering from them for the coming year. This year I ordered from Southern Exposure and had a good experience (really high germination rates compared to what I'm used to), but Baker's Creek has so many fun varieties...

I order exclusively from Baker Creek. They also have excellent reviews at Garden Watchdog. Excellent seeds, large selection.

I think I will try Baker's Creek next year (already have way too many seeds, if that's possible). They have such an incredible selection.
