When is the best time to order/start selling seeds?

Our new season opens the first Monday in November, and ordering early is a good way to take advantage of our widest selection.  The longer your display is on the sales floor, the more opportunities your customers have to purchase, so earlier is better but we do recommend having your seeds out for sale by late February.  We also offer gift box collections, sprouts, and microgreens that work well as gifts, and having those out ahead of holiday shopping is a great idea.

Why are some items backordered or out of stock?

We get a lot of questions about backorders, and we'd like to take a moment to explain our management process here at High Mowing. The reality is that backorders are a normal part of the seed industry, and there are many reasons that different varieties are in backordered or out of stock status.

Back Ordered: Back Orders exist because sometimes a variety isn’t available to us from the grower until later in the season, or sometimes we sell through what we have ahead of schedule and need to source more. A Back Order status indicates that we are expecting to receive the seed and should be able to pack it and ship it to you by the back-order date.

  • We try to calculate these dates conservatively so that we can deliver to you on time, but occasionally factors beyond our control necessitate a change in the backorder date. 
  • All of the seed that we sell is run through our quality control processes, and any seed that does not meet our standards may go from being backordered to out-of-stock.

Out of Stock: In general, once something is marked out of stock, it is not likely to come back for the season. This can happen when there is a crop failure or widespread unavailability.

Organic seed is often more difficult to produce than conventional seed, which can make sourcing challenging.

Look for availability status updates on our Web Order Form or our Custom Order form, updated weekly.

How do I place a reorder?

Reorders can be placed whenever you’re ready, and you can submit them the same way initial orders are submitted- via our Custom Order form, our Web Order Form, or by email, fax, phone call, or mail.

How do I make a return through your Guaranteed Sales Program?

Our Returns season begins in mid-July and closes on October 15 each year.  Participants in our Guaranteed Sales Program, who placed their initial order on or before April 1, may return up to 50% of total garden seed purchases for 90% credit towards future purchases.  Note that Sprouts, Microgreens, and Gift Boxes are not included in the returns program.  Each mid-July, participants in our Guaranteed Sales Program will receive an email with instructions for how to successfully return their unsold seeds.
