Just received an email from Mrs. Nichols McGee herself. I'm impressed that the owner of the company took the time to look into this. Am going to grow these bulbs out, next to 'my own' quality control specimens, and see what next July brings.

Update: Mar 10th, 2010.
I am not changing my rating of them from Positive to Neutral.
I have purchased 2 kinds of Artichoke seeds (Green Globe & Imperial Star). The germination rate of these seeds has been 40% and the survival rate is half of that; meaning for every 10 seeds I start, I get 2 healthy seedlings. This is quite low, even for artichokes. I tried talking to them during an exhibition in Portland Oregon and they gave me an additional packet of the Imperial Star for free. The new packet had the same rate. I am employing a heating mat and being patient with the seeds but even after waiting for over 3 weeks, the rate is the same. I tried emailing them through their website asking for help and advice 4 weeks ago on this but they never answered me.
I am rating as neutral instead of negative because I had a better luck with their broccoli and tomato seeds.
