Purchased 'Stallion White' cucumber seeds from New Dimension Seeds. the seeds arrived quickly, were planted 7 days ago and are beginning to sprout. Looks like I'll have at least 90% germination rate if not more. If this variety is as good as what I have read I will be buying again next year.

This company is based in Scapoose, a small town west of Portland. The woman owning it is Chinese and she has established a fairly strong relationship with Portland Nursery.
I haven't had great luck with her/their seeds; some have germinated fine, others seemed poor.
The biggest complaint I have is that all seeds are produced in China. I realize the owner is Chinese and getting seeds from her home country is somewhat understandable but TOO many things are already "Made in China." I'd rather my seeds be locally sourced as opposed to sourced to the industrial wasteland more now known for manufacturing.
Bought seeds from this company(Greenway asparagus bean) under the sub name of new dimension seeds. When i opened the seed packet it was a biscuit of mold and smelled of ammonia.I contacted the company by email address from thier website. explained the problem..No response. so i contacted again ..Nothing...contacted again...still nothing.(3-4 days between each email) no response on attempted phone calls.Sent one more email today around 1 pm, told them if i did not receive a response by 7pm that i would have to post a negitive review. Again no response. So here i am. If i had received a simple" we are sorry that is not our usual product condition, or even if they had said we are sorry. I would have accepted that and moved on. BUT they refuse to respond so i must.
