Ordered from this company, Paypal payment was taken, Almost a month later no seeds or info, Email to company resulted in no date, This shyster seems to be a ripoff artist, I will be using paypal to get payment returned, DO NOT BUY FROM THIS USELESS COMPANY, They will take payment and run like they tried with me.

I should have investigated before ordering from this joker. When I discovered that my Lubbock based vegetable seed company had closed their doors I was desperate to find another local business that carried vegetable seed. I found this so called “company” online and was delighted to know this “vendor” lived about two miles from me. I called him and asked to come get seed. He told me to “TEXT” him with my order. Texting that kind of lengthy order was not going to work so he suggested I order via his online store. Nearly $60 later I was told my order was ready for pickup and would be left on his front door step? Ok? Thought that was odd.but drove to his house. found the seed. got home and found that half my order was missing. Tried to call him. no answer (caller ID probably helped notify him another jilted customer was calling about being ripped off) so I left a message. Days pass. no call back. Texted him. He asked what was missing and I sent a pic of my order AND my PayPal receipt (thank God I used PayPal and didn’t give him my card info). He said he would have that ready soon. That was May of 2018. I texted twice more last summer including once again, pics of my order and my receipt telling him in my last text that this is what I paid for. he had gotten HIS money and I wanted my seed. No response. When I looked online for feedback on his “business” I found several scathing reviews, one in particular, Dave’s Garden, that were quite similar to my experience. As it stands. I spent $60 with this sketchy jerk and received maybe $15 worth of seed and he received about a $40 dollar TIP. I thought it rather ballsy of him to rip off someone whom KNEW where he lived. Not quite certain he has the smarts to realize that. but he has enough smarts to use a fake business to scam paying customers. And by the way. the seed I DID actually get never produced squat! There are better online seed stores that I have found. STEER CLEAR of this SHYSTER!

I ordered seed in early February 2018 and did not receive the order by March. I called multiple times and sent innumerable emails, with no responses. Finally in late April I filed a complaint with pay pal. In May it was escalated to a claim. Oddly, within 3 days I received a call from them, AFTER pay pal got involved. Not a reputable company.

I purchased seeds from The Seed Kingdom and three kinds were not viable. I wrote to them three separate times and they never replied at all.

Here is a copy & paste of my second letter to them:

” I received these seeds from you back in August:
Nantes Carrot Seeds
Alaska Early Pea Seeds
Parsnip Seeds/Harris Model
Golden Globe Turnip Seeds
All American Parsnip Seeds –
Salisfy Mammoth Sandwich Islands

The salsify and parsnips seeds did not germinate, no doubt because they were too old. You should know that these seeds are notoriously short-lived.
This is the second time I have written you about this.
I am very disappointed in your lack of response. “

I have sent him an email telling what happened, he was friendly and said he’d have sent the missing seeds with the next order, which I have done the same day.
I have bought the seeds again, and I have bought again bulk.

When I have received the parcel no sign of the missing seeds, he did not send, but also the new order was again not bulk, but regular packets.

I was missing 1500 paid seeds, more or less .

Had to contact Paypal as he never replied to the emails with the pictures included.

It was a real shame as I liked much the quick shipping and the number of seeds to choose from.
