I highly recommend Willy for future seed swaps. He did a great job hosting the Back to School Swap. Clear instructions, helpful to those needing help, good posted updates and the seeds were thoughtfuly distributed. I hope he keeps hosting. I would trade with him again in the future.

Willy did a great New Year Swap and I got a generous number of seed packets with a good variety. I received quite a few extras as well. I look forward to future trades.

Last Saturday I received a great package of seeds sent by Willy as part of the 2012 Back to School Swap. They included many I am very excited to grow. Willie was a great host and chose good varieties for me to grow.Thanks to all who sent seeds. My package had a lot of seeds from 7servant7. An extra thanks for the great varieties you sent that I ended up receiving. (Kinda wondering if it is godsgarden9/willy in disguise)

This was my first time in one of Willy's swaps, the 2014 New Years-Everything Goes Fresh Seed Swap, and it was great! With so many participants and so many seeds, he did a terrific job of sending out a great assortment of seeds in my package. I'll definitely want to join in another!

I got my seeds today from Willy. I'm not doing his swap again. I mailed my seeds 2 months ago. I sent all named, rare varieties in generous amounts.

There were way too many unnamed seed varieties in the package that I received. Many packets barely had any seeds in them.

I won't be doing this swap again. I've never received so many unnamed varieties in a group swap.

Also most of the packets don't have harvest dates. I have no idea how old they are, so I can't trade with them. I'll just have to give them away.

Fall Spectacular 2014

Lots of common mixes and unknowns. Packs labeled saffron that were actually safflowers, that you can get as bird food. Grapefruit and pomegranate seeds? Come on now! The bubble mailer I received wasn't nearly as fat as the one I sent. That was disappointing. There were some interesting packs of seed but not enough to bring me back to another one of Willy's Swaps. Be weary of this one, it looks like he has an ebay seed store too.

Other interesting reviews of Willy

There is also a review of Willy using his name 7servant7 on DG, but I can't include that link here. Makes you wonder how many other names he's using.

Here is a link that might be useful: Willy's ebay store

All I can say is, I haven't had any problems with Willy as yet, so,...I'm still "in" at this point.
