Welcome! @RobinSeeds - And best of luck to you. What zone are your plants grown in - 6A? Never mind.

Nice looking stuff! And the price is certainly right! (Where is that temptation emoticon?)

Sorry - how DO I delete a post? Have never tried before and have no idea.

Lol 'ignoring zones altogether'. Literally laughing out loud David!

What zone would you like me to be in?

Lol, I'm sorry, you started it...(did I just negate my apology?).

I grow stuff from Z 2 - Z 11. The inside of my house is stuffed incl garage and basement- all but one room.
White Bird of Paradise just over my shoulder in the Living room Near are 2 Gingers and a Plumeria and a Pineapple and a Fig and ....

Z 9 might be nice. But I would miss my Lilac, Peonies, etc.

I used to say I pushed the Zone limits and Melanie here at ATP gave me that moniker.

nodding Rolling on the floor laughing Hurray!

Wow, and ambitious too! Although, if you inhabited zone 9, you could zone push the other way...via a walk-in fridge. I never heard of it before but that doesn't mean it wouldn't work.

RobinSeeds is a Co-op, we've got California, Oregon and Michigan gardeners so far. We hope to have all the bases covered in the near future. Not everyone is as talented as you but most would benefit from purchasing seeds grown in the same zone they're gardening in, it increases the success rate (and that works good for us too). I'm delighted you like our prices, thanks for letting me know, feedback is key.

Welcome to ATP, RobinSeeds !

When I clicked on the link to your website, my Norton program gave me a message that it was a "potentially dangerous website" due to "driveby downloads." Has anyone else here encountered this problem? (It wouldn't be the first time that I've gotten a false warning from Norton)

@DavidLMO -- I don't think it's possible to actually delete a post.

Thanks! You know, I meant to do that but didn't go back...just kept going forward. It's done now, great suggestion and thanks for bringing it to my attention.
I tip my hat to you.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the Norton heads up. Gee, I hope that's not some sort of shake down where I have to pay Norton to mark me as safe :(
Now, off to ask google what "driveby downloads" are.

I been around the Internet for a long time including stints as Abuse Managers & Spam Fighters and have no clue.

Ahh --- I reviewed what it is and that exploit used to be called something else.

Clearly that is a bogus warning by Norton. I do not use Norton - but Robin there should be a way at their site to contact them and indicate they are throwing off False Positives.
