The plant got here and when I open the box half of the leaves fell off, and the plant was eaten by bugs! All the leaves had holes. I sent a picture and have not heard anything and no refund Either
Absolutely love the plants and seeds purchased from you. The Callaloo are already spreading and growing great. Seeds are sprouting. So, so pleased.
Order never shipped after 14 days. Email unanswered
I received a usps tracking number for my order two weeks ago however, when I track the package it says that it pre-shipment. A label has been created but the USPS has not received a package. I’ve emailed Sarge directly, emailed Caribbeangardenseed, filled out the online contact info, and called. I have not been able to get in contact with anyone and have not received any response to my inquiries. I had to re-purchase these seeds from other sellers and I have received and even sprouted them while waiting to receive any info on this order.
