Just received my order from seedaholic located in Ireland and wanted to share what they shipped. I did write a review for those interested.

Look at the beautiful plant description and sowing instruction stapled on each card. I will order from here again. I don't impress easy but just had to share with the rest of ATP.

They give nice stories about the history or uses for each plant.
I have always liked what I got from them.

Really nice that they do this. Besides offering information like that at all, not many companies would take the time to printout individual pages from their website just for your convenience. Thumbs up

Wow Wow Wow!!! What EXCELLENT service. I sent a note via the "contact us" letting them know I was having trouble. I did not expect a response until Monday. I got an almost immediate response!! It must be Saturday night there! She said she would look into it and wrote a long lovely personal note acknowledging how much time I must have taken to put together my order. But I sent another note before this letting her know I figured out the problem and was able to place the order. She sent another response letting me know she got the order and that it would ship out Monday and I should have it before New Years! I'm so excited!!

I will write a review for the Green Pages after I get my seeds.

I think it is a one-person shop. Or close. The Lady that runs it is a sweetheart.

Yep. My reaction exactly. You can part with a chunk of change real quick if you visit the site. She has a lot of neat stuff - some fairly hard to find.

My only slight complaint is that due to Irish law, she has to charge US buyers a VAT. Not huge, but adds up. I have purchased from a dozen or so EU countries and never paid a GST or VAT elsewhere.
