I have purchased 7 different species of Musa Banana seeds from Georgavines. I am experienced in the challenges of grow Bananas from seed. The issue I have with the seeds they sell in regards to the Banana seeds, since these are the only types of seed I have tried from Georgavines.

What a SCAM and one of the worst Sham Businesses in a long time...I have ordered seed in the past and it has never sprouted so I 'chalked it up'...But this time, I ordered cuttings for a Research Project. They were not cheap at $50 plus shipping!

I bought lychee plant from this business. The Lychee tree arrived and looked fine. I planted it in bigger pot and watered it regularly. After couple of weeks the lychee plant died. I contacted the business and explained them the issue. The business was very prompt in responding back and issued RMA. I sent back the tree as soon as I received the communication from business. After receiving back the package, the business responded back that they cannot refund the money because of following reasons :

I ordered impatiens cyathiflora seeds from them. Seeds looked unripe (partially whitish, light brown) to me. No germination info, therefore I treated them like other wild impatiens seeds (stratification for 8 weeks at 5°C), but no sign of germination. Waste of money.

I ordered 4 different Impatiens glandulifera varieties from them. Depending on variety they had between 5-8 seeds and were over $5.00 per packet. Upon arrival I noticed that about 50% of the seeds were undeveloped (they looked like dust) and there was no way they would germinate but I really wanted the plants so I said what the heck even one would be great! What a waste of time and money! I'm a plant pathologist and used to work for seed company so I have some experience in germinating seeds thanks to my friends in seed germ lab. It is over 3 months later and nothing is happening. Just to let you know I received another variety of Impatient glandulifera from different source about week later and they are already transplanted into my garden doing very well.

Just wanted to add that as of today, on my 3rd attempt to get a viable seedling of the Red Picotee MG, not even 1 out of 10 MG seeds I've planted have come up. They all rotted.

I've ordered twice from Georgia Vines, and each time, the plants were delivered in tiny pots, barely 2" in size. The first set of vines I ordered (last summer) hardly grew at all. The vine that arrived today has no sign of new growth and holes in the leaves. I would be surprised if this most recent shipment survives, and would be shocked if it thrives.

I would be very hesitant to seeds from this company. I had sent a few emails to Georgia Vines to ask questions about their passiflora seeds. They carry so many varieties of passiflora and sell seeds as well as plants, so I wanted to be sure that they were not allowing their passifloras to hybridize. I asked if the seeds were ones that they saved themselves, and what steps they’d taken to isolate the varieties. I’d hate to buy seeds, go to the trouble of getting them to germinate (passifloras are notoriously difficult to get to germinate unless they are extremely fresh), grow them for years and then discover when they bloom that they are not the variety I wanted but some sort of hybrid. I had to email and then email again several times before I got answers to my questions that were remotely clear. Initially I got the response of:

Oh No, I'm so sorry about my son's response in these emails. There certainly is no excuse for this and I apologize for his unexcusable behavior. I had no idea about these emails. I recently asked him to help me with the business and now see he has been not doing things the way they should be done. I appreciate you letting me know about this and will certainly make changes. Again, please accept my apology.
