timeless-tomatoes.com
to
www.timelesstomatoes.store

The website and selection are somewhat different than before.

Hi everyone! Would like to see if anyone has experience with Bounty Hunter Seeds (https://www.bountyhunterseeds.com/). I looked through this thread, and they don't seem to have been mentioned yet. They've been updating their site with some interesting new varieties.

Not that I need more seeds and I plan to participate in this year's MMMM swap, but I guess that's how you define addiction. :?

Thanks,
Bobby

He has a nice selection. I placed an order yesterday, so we shall see how fast they ship. It won't be until next year if I know if the seed is true or not. From his varieties I wonder if he was a member at TV.

@MissS Cool! Looking forward to your feedback on their customer service and speed. I know it's impossible to review the seed quality until next year.

@Spike LOL, didn't mean to be an enabler. I guess anytime there's talk about specific varieties (or vendors), we get the strange feeling that we need more seeds. :shock:

Has the issues with Renaissance been resolved? They have the Blue Ridge Mountain, Donskoi and Wes that I am considering purchasing.Can anyone tell me what approx shipping costs are? That info in not on their website,and I don't enjoy going through the checking out process just to determine shipping costs.

I received seeds from there recently. It took about 3 weeks for my order to arrive. They have a $5.00 flat rate shipping charge. If you are only looking for 3 varieties then may I suggest posting your "Want List" in the "Seeds Wanted" forum. Most of us enjoy trading seeds and most of us will send out seeds for a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope). You never know you may get all of them there or none.

This is a great list/thread and I plan to check them all out. But first I’m going to be lazy and ask: do any of these vendors offer “grab bag” or mixed selections? This year I will have more room to grow various new-to-me and unusual/novelty cultivars but am reluctant to buy twelve whole packets of seeds just to grow twelve different plants.
Thanks!

I think I’ve seen eggplant variety packs at Nikitovka, and possibly other places. Sand Hill has 10 packs for $16 or so on tomatoes (all reds, or all pinks, etc.).

You will probably get a better response if you start a new thread.

I ordered from https://www.angelfieldfarms.com/about.html this year and was very satisfied. The seeds were well labeled in a large zip lock bag including a good description and date the seeds were grown. The owner is native American and grows her own.

She does have a *grab bag* mix of over 20 types of seeds but they are all mixed together and not individually labeled.

I too have an order in to Renaissance Farms. After I ordered and paid, I expected a confirmation email. Nothing. I emailed and then got an order confirmation stating that my order had been received and was being processed. The order was placed on Feb. 2. I sent a second email asking when my order might arrive. Crickets. Doesn't seem like a good way to run a business.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I am scratching my head wondering what is going on over there. He has a FB presence and has been active but obviously something is going on in house that is running amok. For now I am going to put a note on our Vendor List to make people aware that things are very slow and that you still can not call them and emails remain unaddressed.

One variety that I really wanted was GGWT. I thought I had seeds but didn't. If anyone has some to share, I'd be glad to purchase, SASE, etc.
