Well that is obviously where your seeds all went - they sent them to MT and Sunny ;D

Sprouty!
:P ;) ;D
Oooops :-[ Sprouty of course - don't know who I could have been thinking of.

Someone said perhaps they are stuck in customs. There are apparently some restrictions on seeds coming in to the country. Food for thought. Hope we aren't blaming Seedfest and it's customs all the time.

There was a customs inspection sticker on the ones from last year but they still arrived in under 2 weeks, they have now had 6 !  You would have thought that a well organised company would at least have the decency to answer it's emails.

I will let you know how I get on.

Exactly! Before I paid for seeds I communicated via emails with seedfest and they were very quick to reply to my mails. Somehow I didn't hear anything from them once I paid. So many people have had bad experiences with them. I don't think it's because of their move to the states. I bought things from the states before and had no trouble. Things arrived pretty quickly.

Good News

I have received a refund to my paypal account from CC now, the company who takes the money, I have still not had contact from Seedfest so I can cross them off my Christmas Card list !!

Sorry to those who have missed out beacause of paypals 45 days rule, I must have only just scraped in.

I still would have preferedmy seeds though ....

Hey Ho.

Just thought I would let you know the end of it all.

I recommend simpson's seeds and realseeds - i oredered from both and had my seeds in days. Plus they are small businesses which we should always support...

Check out the seeds section in the Wiki - lots of suppliers, but after rreading about Seedfest, perhaps it could do with a blacklist as well.

cambourne7,

If you're after strange exotic plants (mostly flowers but a few fruit & veg) have a look at this:

Friendly company, great service - and even if you don't buy, the read alone is dribble factor 10!

 I ordered just before Christmas from seedfest before I read this thread.  :-[ Just received all my stuff today, with large numbers of free packets of v. useful stuff.  :)

It's a pity people have had so many bad experiences with them. Let's hope they get back on track for this year for more customers than just me with their customer service.
