And this is a very nice letter from a Friday visitor – Sam Scott of Waihi:

 

Dearest Kings Seeds Team
I am just writing to you, as we all know most people only comment when they get bad service or product.  However, I thought give credit where credit is due.
I had my first experience of visiting your friendly workplace a fair few Fridays ago.  All the team were very friendly, knowledgeable, smiling and came across as very happy in their work.
I was gob smacked at the set-up to any avid gardener it would be like walking into a sweet shop!
I usually buy packet seed from Mitre 10 or the like.  However I am so glad that my friend recommended a visit to your place to buy seed.
I am a great lover of chillies and purchased a few packets of Jalapeno seed, not only was the service and knowledge I received A1, I am pleased to write that I had a 99% strike rate!!  Which is another first as in the past with different branded seed, the strike rate has been nowhere near that.
So thank you so much for the fantastic service and the best packet of seed ever! Keep up the excellent work.
