    Have Been a Customer For Decades

    I return, year after year to Pinetree because the seeds have a super germination rate, they are affordable and I don’t end up spending money on too many seeds for my backyard garden. The Pinetree packets contain just enough seed to fill my gardens for a reasonable price. Customer service is great, too.
