Last October 2020,we ordered from Tim 1 pound of Chestnut Mollissima seeds (Chinese chestnut), they have been shipped from New York state (Locke), to Poland. We received them in good order, but a surprise! the smallest seed only 2 grams (two grams!!), the average of 25 smallest ones 3,76 grams, just imagine how they so small!!! the biggest one (only one at 11 grams). How to make a decent and strong tree with such genes from these very small seeds???This guy does not want to listen, does not answer on the phone, does not reply to email, he is behaving like thief who runs away after his rubbery! and of course he does not want to refund the money even with proof I sent him with pictures, explanation, and all details! PayPal, pfff they do nothing! How this guy can sell such ridiculous seeds, he has no shame seriously! DO NOT BUY OF COURSE FROM THAT GUY!

Sheffield's charges a premium. Their seeds are generally good; and they are friendly--until they're not. Then, they act just a little bit better than some random guy on eBay.

Unfortunately, Sheffield's is the only place to get certain things, but there are plenty of other places to get good seeds that don't charge so much. Since they don't seem to stand behind their product, I don't see any reason to order from Sheffield's if you need not.

AVOID THIS SUPPLIER!

I ordered and received two packages of Akebia Quinata (chocolate vine); about 40 seeds May 2020. I followed the instructions for planting. None of the seeds germinated. I requested replacement seeds, but was told the seeds were good and to wait several more weeks. Nothing germinated, but Tim at SS wanted photographs of the seeds that by then were in the ground for a month. Mid July and nothing has sprouted, and Tim refused to send replacement seeds.

Here at Sheffield\'s Seed Company we have spent over 40 years working hard to provide quality products, service and professionalism for our customers.
After emailing with John it was clear that he did not follow the growing information that were sent with the seeds and are also on our website at http://www.sheffields.com
For successful germination they are essential.
A little surprisingly he ordered from us again a couple of weeks after posting the negative comments.
All the best, Tim

They did not follow my shipping instructions, altough they confirmed that they will follow it. This caused delay in delivery what caused damange of the sent seeds. Can not recommend this company if you are outside of the USA.
