Finding out the reputation of a seed bank is very easy these days. Google the name of the seed bank combined with words like “legit” or “review” behind it. You quickly end up on review websites where previous customers have written a review about the company.
Assortment and prices

Finally, the guarantees. The best online seed banks offer various guarantees. However, there are several seed banks in the UK action that do not offer guarantees. Checking and comparing the guarantees offered is therefore perhaps the most important point of attention before you make a purchase. Guarantees that are utmost important are:
