Ordered 1/7 - received 1/21. Over half of my order contained held over seeds packed in 2013/2014 and some tested as of 9/2014. I specifically wrote in the notes that I do not want held over seeds as I had some low germ rates on their held over seeds last year. They sent them anyhow.
I wrote them and told them my concern for held over onion and lettuce seeds as they usually have reduced germ rates. They sent me a note saying that most companies hold over seeds and repack, well those companies that do that do not get business again from me. I know of many companies that will have end of yr sales to get rid of old see stock with higher hold-over rates...
Not happy with how this was handled. They could have sent out fresher seeds or given a refund as I clearly stated I did not want held over seeds.

I opened the package of seeds. All but the perpetual spinich were rubber-banded together and that's why it felt like there was a box of seeds instead of individual packages. The perpetual spinich was opened and some seeds had spilled into the envelope. This does not appear to be a good packaging system to use- This is the kind of envelope that is usually sent through a mechanical sorting and cancelling process and the lump of seeds were probably what caused the package to hang up. I have ordered seed from three other seed companies and they all came in Priority Mail Boxes with no damage to the container.
I just sent a question to Fedco to say that I don't understand on the packing slip why my subtotal and grand total are $43.10 and I paid $47.90, when I paid no shipping and no tax. I'd like to understand that.
