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!

RE: Cryptid

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! :)


 o
RE: Cryptid

I usually don't post when someone responds to a seed offer but Darrin was so nice. He sent his envie promptly and even included a pack of mixed nigella seeds which I love. He also has the nicest printing that I've ever seen. lol

RE: Cryptid

Just completed a trade with Darrin and everything went very smoothly. Sent everything that was discussed and packed it all great. Thanks again!


 o
RE: Cryptid

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!

Darrin is so nice! He sent adopted me for the ongoing newbie swap and sent an awesome package of seeds that were well packaged and labeled. When I tried to send him some seeds in return he insisted on sending "a little something" back. I'd love to trade with Darrin again any time.

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.
