    Any one recall the name of a major seed supplier in Europe?
    I ordered from them years ago and cannot come up with a link... They have 1000's of plants and sell in different quantities....

    Help!

    I am certain these are wonderful sites, but alas, these are not the ones that I had ordered from. The site was too major to have gone defunct, they had seeds from every country in the world in a broad assortment of quantities, and shipped everywhere. I saved information about them on a hard drive that went bust. So sad.
    Chiltern looks very promising.....thank you for adding the links!

    Do you remember what kind of seed you purchased from them? If you were to search for it again, perhaps the company will turn up once more.

    I'm surprised that you need to go overseas for seed since there are so many sources to choose from in the States.

    JLHudson is a consideration as a US source. But the ONE had more of everything — options, variety, etc... and yes, Junglekeeper, I tried searching for the seed I most likely purchased from them (succulents). Sigh.

    B and T World Seeds perhaps? I think they offer the largest collection in the world.

    Tried several search engines to gain entry — all failed and said entry to the site “forbidden” ...MiGhT be them...
    Cannot tell without getting a peak at the site.

    The site opened for me just now. It's based in France.

    Not sure what you're saying. This URL worked? So is it the one?

    I am getting also occasionally errors (524, 507 etc), when trying to open that site from Europe, so this problem it is not related with the US.
    Sometimes I still manage to reach it. Querys take very long time, possibly the database is huge and server is struggling when executing tasks.

    Has anyone actually dealt with B&T World Seeds? Is it legitimate? The site feels a bit shady.

    I have ordered seed from them some years back with no issue. It's a very large catalog that offers some choices rarely found. But with such a large collection on offer, I never assumed everything would germinate. I grew this from seed purchased from B and T.

    I don't know what problem people are having with the website. It all works for me.

    No fooling, nice image.The "this" link goes to a Botany Photo of the Day: Zaluzianskya ovata.
    Susan, sorry about hijacking your thread, but you started it. :)

    @SusanDunlap, did you pay for your purchase with a credit card? Perhaps the credit card company still has the payment on record; a search for the word 'seed' in the vendor name should do the trick.
