Owner Sue generously enclosed 2 free seed packets with my recent shipment as she is no longer importing seed from China.
The enclosed note read: "Dear gardeners please save the seeds and share them with your friends when possible. These are Asian vegetable seeds from China;..... I am no longer importing seeds from China so I would highly encourage you to save the seeds and share them with your fellow gardeners. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you over the years. Good luck and happy gardening. With love, Sue"

I have had great difficulty recently in finding these seeds locally, and I live across the Columbia from Scappoose, where the company is located. My favorite of what I've grown are the White Stallion cucumbers, but found no WS cucumber seeds in the New Diimension displays anywhere. I am loathe to buy by mail because of the shipping charges.
Gorgeguy -- get over it. These are Asian vegetables, and they come from Asia. I think it's terrific to have a wide variety of new and different plants to grow. The history of gardening and horticulture is that of exotic plants introduced to people who have never grown them - or seen them -- before. Have you tried growing these seeds from China and harvesting seeds from your crops, saving the seeds for next year? That way you would be sure that they were grown here.
Purchased 'Stallion White' cucumber seeds from New Dimension Seeds. the seeds arrived quickly, were planted 7 days ago and are beginning to sprout. Looks like I'll have at least 90% germination rate if not more. If this variety is as good as what I have read I will be buying again next year.
