I purchased them on bidorbuy, its like a South African e-bay, the seller throws seeds away after 6months so i know they fresh...

backerrobert,

Did you get your seeds from a supplier by the name of Seeds 4 Africa or Seeds and All?

backerrobert, please tell me what currency does bidorbuy has, because i don't know.
Edit: And i think Seeds for Africa user encourages buyers to buy from him many items, by increasing postage for international buyers (R55 must be dollars if i'm correct), which is a huge price for a transport. And Seeds and All user has the same policy. :(

Dude R55 is about $8 dollars, for a single seed order or multiple seed orders, they can put multiple seed packets in a single package... So you can just buy one or like 10! $8 dollar postage... I think its a good deal, I pay $5 dollar postage... Think you got your currencies confused...
