My experience with BC Bud Depot
I will cut to the chase. I got my seeds.
I am a bit of a stickler when it comes to the genetics in my garden and like to grow from seed obtained from reliable sources. After doing some research I decided that I wanted some of the BC Bud Depot strains, so on October 23, 2013 I placed the following order at the online shop of BC Bud Depot:
BC God Bud Feminized Winner 12 Seed Pack
Girl Scout Cookies Feminized Winner 12 Seed Pack
Cinderella 99 Feminized 12 Seed Pack
The total for the order came to $425. I printed out a copy of the order confirmation email that I got, folded it around $425 cash and sent it off to BC Bud Depot via USPS Registered Mail. Registered mail takes longer to move than regular mail so it took about a week for BC Bud Depot to receive my payment. I think they received it on October 30[SUP]th[/SUP], but no later than October 31st.
I noticed that on the BC Bud Depot website the status of my order had changed from “Open” to “Processing”, and there it stayed for weeks. After a few weeks, I called and spoke to a gentleman, (who sounded like he had been sampling some of their product) who reassured me that my order would be shipped within a few days. Sure enough, my order status changed to “Shipped” and after a few days I began to look for my seeds in the daily mail. Nothing. After about 10 days I called again and spoke to a woman who told me that my order had been shipped just a few days before and that it usually takes two weeks to receive an order in the US. I asked her about the previous shipping date and she told me that she could only see info on the current shipping date.
December 9th, two weeks from the last shipping date, I got my seeds.
As you can see from the picture above, my order came in a plain white envelop with just the address of BC Bud Depot as the return. The seeds came wrapped in two sheets of plain white paper, in the plastic container shown above. There are little square plastic tubes where the seeds are placed and q-tips that had been cut in half were stuffed in to the ends to keep the seed safe and snug during transport.
Getting the seeds out was a fiasco! I pulled the first q-tip out of the Cinderella 99 section and no seeds. I had to violently shake the container to get the first few seeds out, but the rest were stuck. I started banging the container on the counter to get the seeds out. I then realized that I was banging the ends of the other q-tips into the other seeds packaged in the same plastic container. Afraid that I was crushing the other seeds, I panicked and pulled one of the other q-tips out only to have 6 God Bud seeds fall out and mix in with my Cinderella 99 seeds.
Well the good news is that BC Bud Depot sent an extra seed for each strain, so I got 13 seeds each for a total of 39 seeds. The bad news is that the packaging was so poorly conceived, that I now have 19 seeds that I can not tell if they are God Bud or Cinderella 99. I believe that the strains are distinct enough that I will be able to sort them out in a grow. I hope.
In the end, BC Bud Depot did deliver the seeds. The process took about 6 weeks from the time I ordered to the time I received my seeds. I spoke with someone at BC Bud Depot twice. They always answered their phone and were polite to me both times I spoke with them. The shipping materials were good at protecting the seeds but not really very stealthy like some other vendors that I have used. I do not care for their packaging, it seems to keeps the seeds safe during transit, but is very difficult to deal with when you are trying to get the seeds out. All in all, they did deliver but were very slow. If the genetics are as good as advertized then I guess it will have been worth it. We shall see.
I will cut to the chase… I got my seeds. The story: I am a bit of a stickler when it comes to the genetics in my garden and like to grow from…
