I ordered some seed and was impressed with the pricing and the speed. The packaging is fancy as well.
The reason I'm giving this a neutral is that I don't see anything on their website that says they're not using neonicotinoid pesticides. Those are linked to bee illnesses.
People promoting "neonics" often use fallacious arguments, like about whether or not the neonics kill the bees outright. That's hardly the only issue. Weakened immune systems. Flight confusion. Etc.
I am not at all looking forward to spending the money, time, and effort to make a meadow if it's going to harml the insects I'm making the meadow for! Please, all wildflower companies, put out a statement that says no neonics, one that we can trust. It will make life for the conscientious consumer much easier.
I planned out my order before realizing how high the shipping charges would be. I was far enough along I went with it anyway, but the shipping charges are so high (nearly 30% of my subtotal on an order with 12 items) I'll probably try to avoid Everwilde in the future. I don't know if the shipping charges were so high last year -- this is my second year ordering from them -- or if I just didn't pay attention to the shipping charges last year. Extraordinarily high shipping charges are my only complaint.
