I'm surprised by the negative feedback. I ordered from them a couple of years ago and had no trouble at all. Email correspodence was prompt. The troubles may be from the very unreliable postal service in Great Britain. American Spam filters also block a lot of email domains from overseas.

I have ordered seeds from the Archibalds before without problems and today I just received seeds that I ordered a couple of weeks ago. One selection was out, so they not only substituted a more expensive (and choice) species (Gladiolus flanaganii for a form of G. dalenii), but they also sent a few extra packets of some very desirable cyclamen selections. I am (again) very pleased indeed!
Many of the items they carry won't be found elsewhere.

I would like to add my positive to JJA seeds also. I have never had anything but good experiences of their seeds and services. And it really is one of the most exciting catalogues around.

This is a wonderful company with unusual and rare seeds. I had absolutely no problems receiving seed from them and I live in Canada. The seed was started at the beginning of this month and more than half has germinated. The rest of the seed requires a warm-cold-warm cycle to germinate and I am certain that it will. Thank you JJA seeds for providing gardeners with your excellent seeds.

I don't understand what the issue is with JJA seeds. I ordered from their website very recently (last month) and no problem in receiving the seeds.

About 2 months ago, I received an updated seed list with further information regarding new varieties being offered and based on this information, I placed an order on the internet. Approximately 10 days after placing the order, I received the seeds. I have no idea how the individuals who are complaining about not receiving their seeds ordered but had they paid with PayPal or with a credit card and not received the merchandise, they could have revoked their payment.

We are wholesale growers and have been growing from seed for many years. I can assure those who wish to order from JJA seeds that they offer unusual and interesting varieties, that the seeds germinate well and that they send the a timely fashion. I seriously question some of the comments directed towards JJA Seeds and I highly doubt that these people didn't receive their seeds.

Until the owners (if they choose to) respond: The website lists some amazing rare perennial and bulb seeds. The selection is very large.

On December 22nd, 2004, nevadagdn changed the rating from neutral to positive and added the following:

Seeds were shipped promptly, arriving within 10 days of my placing an order. The quantity of seed looks like good value for my money. My order was confirmed promptly, as well.
On April 8th, 2005, nevadagdn added the following:

At least 75% of the varieties I ordered germinated. Considering this is my first time growing stuff from seed, I'd call that outstanding.
