I had a great trade with Katie! As she noted in her review of me, I definitely received the better part of the deal. 90 canna bulbs for a few packs of seeds & 2 bulbs. She's very kind & insisted I only send one of each bulb. Great communication & awesome trader! =) Thanks Katie!

CINERARIA SEEDS

Great communication w/ Katie. Quick to respond. I was disappointed w/ the amount (quantity) of Cineraria seeds I received. I was under the impression we were to trade 2-3 dozen seeds according to the FAQ's which is defintely what I adhere to in my trades (generously). There were 14 seeds. I hope to get good germination rate otherwise it will be a very disappointing trade.

irisnquilt -

I see that you said you only got 14 Cineraria seeds. I know I at least sent you 50, if not much more. That is very strange. Each little strand is considered 1 seed. I'm not sure if they are clumped together, making it appear to only look like 1 seed. Are you positive that I only sent 14? My fiance watched me count them out for hours! Here is a photo of what 2 seeds looks like, they are very small!:

If you indeed only received 14, I would like to send you 100 more to make up for everything. I am really confused about this, honestly!

I wish you would have emailed me your disappointment rather than leaving me bad feedback. I would never want to disappoint any trader with me.

Please let me fix this. I will send you at least 100 more by the end of the day. Thanks

- Katie

Great trader. I got the correct number of cineraria seeds, and her packaging of some sprouting lily bulbs was amazing! Not even one bruised leaf. I wish commercial sellers would package so well.

Wow, What a wonderful person to trade with! Bulbs arrived packed perfectly and in great condition! I couldn't ask for a better trade! An incredible amount of bulbs and some great hostas as a bonus! I would trade with Katie anytime! A great communicator as well! One of my all-time favorites!

FOLLOW UP: CINERARIA SEEDS After posting a fair review. Katie has made the situation right and gone above and beyond the call of duty!! I received more seeds and the trade was very very fair. Perhaps in retrospect before posting I should have contacted her but being new here wasn't sure how to handle. I would definitely trade with her again and highly recommend doing so and if there is a problem contact her first before review! Thanks Katie!!!

Katie sent a very generous amount of canna bulbs in our trade. I'm sure I got the better end of the deal but wasn't intentional on my part. Communication with her was great.

I've done 2 trades with katie and I think the last one is the very best trade I've ever done and from 2000 to 2005 I did a lot of trades. The plants were packaged so well they never even wilted and she was very generous. I'd trade with her anytime.

I was literally stunned at the huge package I received from Katie as part of the Secret Santa Swap. She sent a lovely card and just about half of the seeds on my wish list. And I love the seed packets she designed! They are so beautiful that I plan to frame them after planting. Thank you so much for your generosity!

Katie is AMAZING!!! She is a very generous person with very great communication skills! She takes the time to let you know what your getting, packaging the seeds up, and she makes her own professional seed packets. She also sends great information on planting the seeds. She also goes well out of her way to make sure she gets you any and all answers to anything you ask her about growing, harvesting, germinating seeds. Its been a pleasure getting to know Katie and I am Blessed ta have gotten to trade with her! I look forward to doing many more trades with her!

I was so Happy Katie picked me for the Secret Santa Swap 2011, her Seed packages are Works of Art, if she had just sent empty packages it would of been worth it, they are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS, but they also contained seeds, just what I was wanting. Katie is a GREAT trader, you should try and swap with her just for the benefit of having one of her seed packages.

OMG, Redthreaddiy (Katie) is so generous and organized. Participated in Secret Santa Swap 2014 and she sent me not one but more than 10 baggies of seeds. They had a little paper in each little baggy saying the name of plant/#seeds. The seed baggies were clean and didn't look old. She is a very kind lady and if you are lucky to trade with her, you will NOT be disappointed.
