been looking at seed companies. found these folks, what a hoot!

the only important question is- anyone bought from them and how did it grow?

I was impressed by the site until I hit this: "My dad gave new bicycles to every child in Toronto-14" and that  was that. Toronto is a city of several million people unless they are talking about some other Toronto (which then at the very least is a misleading statement).   That brought everything else on the site into serious question. IF they are doing what they SAY they are doing then that might justify the prices they are charging but
personally I would buy elsewhere and support  the  charities of my choice.

It was sad to read that there were people posing as rescue workers so as to loot houses after the NZ earthquake earlier this week.. trust is something that these days seems rather too easilly abused.
