I ordered for the first time from them this year and received my order very quickly. There was one back ordered item "black krim" tomato that I had to wait 2 weeks for due to it being back ordered. But it arrived in time to start in-doors for the upcoming growing season with the other varieties I was starting. So far I am having great results with everything especially the celery that I ordered.

I forgot to add that Shumway's online ordering system doesn't work very well. After several attempts I was unable to place an online order. I don't know what is going wrong there on their server side, but it needs to be addressed. (I'm an IT professional) However, with that being said their customer service is great and you can place your order over the phone with superb results. Just have your item name and number handy. I had my seeds in less than a week.
