    Order Not Fulfilled

    Placed an order for 4 different types of seed and only received 2 of the seed varieties in my shipment, though was charged for the complete order. Emailed the company immediately with no response in 3 days time. I called and finally was told the missing seed was not in stock at time of original order and the other 2 seeds were being bagged for shipment. Not sure how a good and ethically correct company can charge a customer for something they don't have. Had to be refunded for the missing seed because they couldn't get it here by the time I was was scheduled to drill seed.
