So I bought some seeds March 15. To be specific I bought 5 seed packs. I think everyone is aware of the size of a seed pack. Unfortunately I paid 6.95 for shipping of the said seed packs. At the time I thought it was fine, I figured they would have super fast shipping to justify the cost of shipping. I placed my order and waited. Five days past, then six, and seven, no seeds in the mail. On the 9th day with no seeds I emailed The Cook's Garden, and asked them where my order was. A few hours later I got an email confirming that the package was sent that day. Again I waited, and waited, no seeds. I sent another email, this time I got an email back with all the shipping info and an explanation of how they ship. They ship via UPS then transfer to USPS. Maybe they get a bulk rate, but why not just slip those seeds into a priority flat rate envelop for 4 bucks. So today fully 13 days later, I got my seed packs. I won't be buying from The Cook's Garden anymore. That shipping is ridiculous, I guess that is what I get for not buying them on Etsy, like I was going to do. Lesson learned.
