Given all the negative feedbacks, I was biting my nails til the order arrived. I ordered 22 packs of seeds on May 14, received emails appraising me of the order status all during the process. It was mailed from the UK on May 23rd and I received it this morning, May 27. The order was complete with 3 packages of free seeds. I am very very pleased.

I looked all over the net for some special seeds and finally stumbled upon eSeeds. I ordered 5 packs from them and it took about 7 days for them to reach me. I was very pleased with my order; prices were fair and so was the shipping. And as I waited, they sent me updates almost daily about the status of my order. When I received the seeds, the invoice contained a hand-written thank you note from one of the owners. I will definately order from them again.

I have ordered twice from this company in the past 2 months and have had nothing but good experiences. I think it's unfortunate that they've been given such a bad rap. After reading the comments on this forum, I was pretty nervous about receiving my first order. I received everything I ordered except for 1 packet of seeds which I quickly received credit for on my next order which arrived in 10 days from the UK. If you want to try different varieties of seeds unavailable in the US, give them a shot. I think people have been unduly harsh with their comments. I plan to order from them again in the future.
I'm sorry to see everyone else's poor reviews of this company because I had a great experience with eSeeds. I didn't get charged anymore than what was stated and I received all of my seeds. The only problems I had were caused by me...lol. I didn't put enough postage on the envelopes when I mailed my checks, so they never got there. I thought it was the company at first, especially after reading the reviews here. Everytime I emailed them I was given a very fast response, always the same day, unless it was later in the day when I emailed them, and trust me, I emailed them alot. I was so upset thinking I had been scammed, and then I got my checks returned to me in the mail and I felt like such an idiot. They were very patient and friendly through all of the trouble that I caused them.
I really do suggest buying through them. They have a large assortment of seeds at very affordable price. Shipping is only $5 to the US, from Canada and the UK, no matter how many packets of seeds you order. The first order I made did take awhile to get because I didn't get them the checks very fast. But my second and third order took only a week from the time it was placed to the time I got it.
I really hope people will give eSeeds an opportunity. Normally I woulnd't care, but I think they've been given a bad rap that they don't deserve. And I also feel a little guilty for being so rude to them. I saw the posts here after I made my first order and I was furious. I spent $74 on seeds and I thought I wasn't going to see any of them. But I got every single one that I ordered.
As for some of the customers saying that they didn't get all of their seeds. I think they might have posted those messages before they waited for them all to get there. My second order I only got three packs out of 10 packs. Again, I was mad and I emailed the customer service. Within an hour I got a message that not all seeds are shipped from the same warehouse. Three packs were sent from Canada and the other seven were coming from the UK. So, again I overreacted and they responded very kindly.
