Most recently when accessing their website, I get the message "Thanks for visiting fragrantpathseeds.com. This site is no longer processing orders."

I have been trying to figure out how to contact this company as they might have a flower I am looking for. The website seems to be down or discontinued. When I try to go there all I get is "Provider error '8000ffff' Catastrophic failure
/default.asp, line 60" I may try sending a letter instead but it they are out of business it would be nice to know or at least post that they no longer have a website. There is also no phone number listed anywhere. If anyone has more info please post.

THIS IS A WARNING (not a review). I was using Google to find a source for a certain flower, and Fragrant Path came up, but Google added a warning, "This site may harm your computer." They explained that the site appears to contain malware (perhaps added to the site by a hacker).

It's possible that there is no actual malware, merely some subroutine that bears a superficial resemblance to malware. But I wouldn't know the difference until my computer had already been compromised (and perhaps not even then, considering how sneaky some malware can be).

I have also emailed Fragrant Path regarding this matter, and letting them know that I would post this message. Once the matter is cleared up so that Google no longer displays a warning, I will come back here and modify this report. In the meanwhile, I apologize to Fragrant Path for the Negative rating -- I hope I have made it clear that I did not mean it as a reflection on their products or service, but rather as a "red flag" to get readers' attention.


On March 14th, 2013, CaroltheDabbler changed the rating from negative to neutral and added the following:

After re-checking Google a few times, I admit forgetting about this matter. Today, I received this message:

Carol,
Guess I don't get to Dave's Garden very often and don't know how many other people do but saw your message and so thought I would contact you. We did have a problem for a short time with that Google warning when our service provider changed. There was never anything actually wrong with our site, it was actually our service provider that had gotten flagged by Google for something suspicious at their level and don't think there has ever been any more problem for a long time. So if you wouldn't mind appending or deleting your comment I would certainly appreciate it...........
Thank you,
Ed

So I checked Google again, and sure enough, there's no longer any warning, so I have changed my rating to neutral (since I have never actually done business with this company). Sorry for not noticing sooner, Ed.
