I have to add a comment regarding shipping costs. I don't know who the original poster eventually bought her seeds from, but shipping costs at other seed sellers are generally higher than 4.05 plus 15c for each additional seed packet, especially when you consider how much other companies are charging for seed.
Burpees: 6.95 for up to $15 worth of merchandise, 8.95 for $15-$35 (average seed packet price $3-$6)
Park: 2.95 for up to $25, 4.95 for $25 to ? (average seed $2-$4)
Pinetree Gardens: 3.95 for up to $20, 6.95 for $20-$50
Since most seed at this company is HALF the price or less than what you can buy elsewhere, the shipping costs are actually quite reasonable. If you do buy $50 worth of stuff, it's free, none of the above give you that option. Giving them a negative based on shipping costs alone is unwarranted.
I'm in the process of buying this season's seeds, if I end up buying from these guys I'll amend this report accordingly.
