Does anyone know the status of the company called The Fragrant Path Seeds that was owned by Ed Rasmussen in Nebraska?

The website has been down for at least a year. I just tried emailing but I've read where others had no luck with that route.

Thanks for any info! Smiling

I have ordered from them in the past, but it's been some years ago unfortunately.
I could be wrong...

I've not heard of them before. Have you checked the Garden Watchdog over on Dave's Garden to see if you can find any info?

Yes, I did. Others had posted similar queries. Shrug!

Danita, I last ordered from them in 2014 and received my seeds just fine, although it took longer than usual, or at least I thought so. I've always loved his seeds because they usually have some rarities. Last year I got the flyer with their offerings for 2015. I emailed a question and never got a response so I did not order. I tried to contact them again this fall by mail and never got a response. I hope nothing bad has happened to him, but a small operation may depend on the health and well being of one person.

I did find this site, that has a couple of phone numbers, one for Ed Rasmussen and one for Judy Seaver. No area code, but that's easily found.

Doesn't sound promising, tho.

This week I got a new flyer from The Fragrant Path, smaller than in years past, featuring pollinator plants, but when I tried to go to the website I got an error message.

That is odd. Could you post the website information here? See if someone else has better luck? I just tried searching again, with no results.

VERY odd. And odd that you got a flyer. Is there a phone number on the flyer or any additional information at all?

Nope. Just a P.O. Box in Fort Calhoun NE. The note that details how plants for pollinators became a focus for this year does not mention any difficulties and is signed Ed, Judi and Tudy, as, if I remember correctly, it has been in the past. The order blank appears unchanged, too.

I don't see it. I can't find my camera. Maybe you can enlarge these scans to see if there is anything of interest to you. Typically there is much more on the website, but...

I would try calling the phone # Woofie posted before placing an order..............they sound like a small, home-run business, but would like to make sure they can ship to me this season.

I tried sending an email earlier today, just to see if I got a response.

A month later, I just got a response to my email. Ed said that, despite his attempts to retire, Trudy and Judi won't let him. He said that Judi is working on the website.

I'll wait until the website is back before I order. He usually has something fun.

I had an email back just this morning. Here's what Judi said: "Many internet problems. For now, see catalog at https://issuu.com/fragrantpathseeds/docs/catalog2016
email: sales@fragrantpathseeds.com "
