Title: Seeds on Ebay shop - cheap cheap for good quality ...
Post by: gavinjconway on September 25, 2011, 10:27
I found this eEbay store for seeds and thought I'd pass it on - what great prices..  BTW the shop has nothing to do with me so i'm not advertising it in any way for gain - just passing on a good deal  :D

Does seem very keenly priced.  I expect because you will get a plain seed packet with no pretty pictures, but who cares about that  ;)

Thanks for passing this in on  :)

I've bought quite a few seeds from them :)
Seed quality is ok but as well as not getting pretty pictures, there are no sowing instructions/dates on the little polybags of seeds.

That's ok if you know what you're doing, or are happy to find the info elsewhere on t'internet.
It may not be so good for beginners though :unsure:

I've also bought seeds from them this year - seem a very good price and quality seems pretty good too. As mentioned there aren't any sowing instructions but I've just had a look on the internet for info and dates. They seem to ship pretty quickly and the packaging is good (small sealed polybags with name, quantity and sow by date).

Yes, I've used them a lot too and been very pleased with the price, speed of delivery and the big selection on offer. I quite like their little packets because they're resealable and take up much less room to store. I tend to make a note of the instructions they give on each listing for that particular seed and keep that for reference.

I'm another regular buyer.  Very pleased with the choices they sell.  Each of the ebay pages tells you some blurb on the seeds.  I am planning to order more off them for next year.

Though now I think of it, they did say Courgette Cocozelle di Napoli was a compact bush plant, and it's the biggest courgette plant I've ever grown :) And it is definitely not a bush, it's sprawled along the ground like a vine.

oooowh.  I feel some autumn ordering coming on and they look as though they have quite a selection of unusual veg for a lot less than the usual companies.

Thanks for letting us know  ;)
