What our clients say?

I was impressed with the speed of the delivery from South Africa. Their website is easy to navigate and full of photos of their large selection of exotic seeds you won’t find anywhere else. The owner was very helpful in allowing me to add to seeds a few days after my initial order saving me money on shipping fees. All email correspondence was answered quickly. I will be ordering from them again soon.

I bought some seeds from Silverhill Seeds and was really happy with their prompt delivery considering they are in South Africa. Most of what I got will be confined to pots due to where I live but I will be back for more.

I am establishing a geophyte/bulb garden at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville FL and Silverhill has been a goldmine for me as many South African summer-rainfall plants are likely to do well in our heat and humidity but are just not available in the U.S. They are responsive to emails and I have had good germination rates (especially when I have paid attention to the instructions!). This company is a jewel among mail-order nurseries.

I’ve been doing business with SilverHill for several years now–although I just received my yearly order from them. Rod and Rachel Saunders give excellent service and go out of their way to assure that my large seed orders arrive with no phyto-problems as often reported by others trying to get seeds into the USA. Orders are processed and shipped promptly and professionally. Germination has always been excellent with their seeds. Rod and Rachel are also fine growers and communications are always prompt and they go out of their way to answer my sometimes very odd questions. Rod and Rachel Saunders (SilverHill Seeds) is a world-class company and definitely the best source for South African species.

I was pleased with my order from Silverhill, since I got some germination from all the items I ordered except one. As I was paying with Paypal, I did have to wait a little while for them to confirm my order and inform me of the amount I owed. But it wasn’t an unreasonable amount of time. About three days, I think. So I will probably be ordering from them again.

I live in South Africa and have used Silverhill Seeds several times. The seed is always fresh and if you follow their planting instructions you will have success in germination. The instructions were very detailed – down to things like filing the side of the seed away to assist germination (certain tree seeds) and what type of soil/sand mixture to use to get best results. Delivery was fast and hassle-free.
