Just got my seeds today and must say "WOW WHAT A TRADER". Packages of seeds were easy to indentify and very generous, when I open the package I notice right off who it was from. Very fast on shipping them, arriving in excellant conditions. I would highly recommend anybody to trade with Cryptid. They will never be dissapointed with the results. BIG THANKS FOR A JOB WELL DONE..... Keep up the good work, you are appreciated here.. Mike

Cryptid was the first person I traded with and now I'm spoiled. He was awesome to trade with, great communication, even explained some of the procedures to me, very generous with seeds and even sent Rosemary cuttings. I would definitely trade with him again!! Oh, and his seed packets are really nice!

I didn't technically "trade" with Cryptid - he offered to send me a few seeds on my want list out of the kindness and his heart as I am new to trading; just emailed me out of the blue with the nicest message. I just happened to have something on his want list so I sent it in return, I hope that it arrives to him safely, yet I know it is no where near as wonderful as all that he sent to me. He is definitely on my radar and when I am ready to trade he will be a top choice. Thank you so much Cryptid! I learned a lot from our exchange and I am so happy to have made such a wonderful new gardening friend! :)

HI Darrin -- you are a CLASS ACT! What a beautiful, huge envelope of seeds you sent,and quickly and your so very nice to deal with. We can all learn from you:-) You were so kind to send me so much more than I expected and label and package everything so nicely. In addition you wrote a lovely note along with extra seed bags.
If you ever see anything on my list it's yours for the asking -- no trade required:-)

take care and God Bless:-)

Awww... I almost started crying when I saw what was inside Cryptid's envelope for the Secret Santa Swap. The card itself was handmade, and embellished with glitter and snowflakes. There was a personalized note inside and his wife, Elly, crocheted a beautiful purple butterfly ornament. There was a cute little silver bow on top. As for the seed packets, they all had little Christmas pictures on them which are very cute! Now for the seeds - I got Red Canna Lily, Mixed Pink Poppies, Red Hollyhocks, Chater's Double Pink Hollyhocks, Le Fleur Lilac Datura, and Blue Datura seeds. Thank you so much for your thoughtful gift. I love everything!

I received some wonderful varieties of bean seeds from Cryptid for a project that I am doing with children in April. Darren sent the seeds, four of each variety instead of just the two of each that I needed, his words "I mean, y'never know,...y'know?"
Thanks so much, these seeds will help tremendously in helping kids learn to love the garden.

Just completed my trade with Cryptid. What an awesome individual! Very generous with seeds, very knowledgeable with plants, and a great sense of humor! As I am very new to this site, it was wonderful to have someone who would trade with me AND help guide me. I believe people like him are the reason websites like this are so wonderful!

Fantastic trade! Quick shipping and loved the packaging of individual seed packs. Plus Darrin gave me great newbie advice. Thanks for being my first trade!

Just initiated a second trade with cryptid. I was away from home when he contacted me for another trade & wasn't going to be home for some time. He is so patient & understanding. Not to mention generous. He sent his seeds out while I was holed up in a hotel 300 something miles from home. When my husband & I returned home, the seeds were waiting for me.

Cryptid sent me a cute Santa pulling the sleigh card and a beautiful crocheted butterfly pin, as well as several seeds I am looking forward to including Calabrese broccoli, Pak choi, Tom Thumb lettuce, Green globe Artichoke, White Columbine, and Bloomsdale Long Standing Spinach. Everything was well packed. Thank you!

Had a wonderful trade with Cryptid. He sent me a lot of seeds and his seed packets were very professional. They had color pictures and planting instructions. The trade was definitely more than expected. I would be honored to trade with him anytime.

Cream of the CROP (pun intended) trader! Very nice, very professional.

Wonderful labels contained with the seeds. Would love to trade again someday.

Rec'd a lovely homemade card from him and his wife sent me a crocheted butterfly pin, along with some wonderful seeds in the 2014 SSS! Was thrilled they took the time to do this when you don't have to! Thank you so very much, Melinda
