Thomas Mickey’s new book All about Flowers: James Vick’s Nineteenth-Century Seed Company traces the success of Vick’s company. Vick maintained an ongoing relationship with his customers through his catalog and monthly magazine, through prizes at State Fairs, through seed clubs in neighborhoods around the country, through demonstration gardens in Rochester, and through newspaper and magazine stories about him and his flowers.
In order to give customers the ultimate in order accuracy, most seed companies pick and pack their seed orders by hand. During this unprecedented pandemic, they have to allow proper distancing between employees which naturally slows down the picking and packing process.

Despite what you read and hear, there is not a seed shortage right now. There is a high demand, which is wonderful. Seed companies, like many other businesses impacted by the COVID pandemic, are short staffed while trying to fulfill orders that are many times the norm. Please be patient!
