    Greetings, I ordered 500 GMO Afghan “Special” seeds and I noticed the the picture of the seeds looked premature; am an avid Gardner and regularly grow papaver somniferum of all types. White seeds are always premature and I hope these aren’t the seeds im receiving. I’ve been scammed before, not to say you do that sort of thing, but if i don’t get any seeds to germinate I’ll have to file a dispute with PayPal.

    I want to be a long time customer. You have an excellent Inveventory. So fingers crossed, I hope to do business further in the future.

      Why would we display a picture of seeds that were Immature?
      Somniferum Seeds mature to become SEVERAL different COLORS (as shown in our Tutorial -see VIDEO in Part 1) depending on the Flower Color and Cultivar.
      Papaver Somniferum ‘Nigrum’ are probaalby what you’re used to.
      The are P. somniferum ‘Album’.
      White seeds are NOT always premature.
      However, all premature Seeds, DO all start out as White.
      Do some research on the web if you need to.
      We’ve grown White, brown, grey, blue, and many Colored seeds.

      I just wanted to know when the stems with the buds would start to grow. I planted in the first week of december. And while the plants are fairly large no stems.

        Stems appear JUST as they begin to “Bolt” into the flowering stage. Be patient. Give them lots of light, and space.

    Just wondering if the shipping times have gone back to normal or if they are still a bit longer because of the virus?

    Also when I was looking at the the Izmir Bush Seeds I saw a note on the bottom left of the picture that says “Do not cut pods, See our Do’s & Dont’s” but I couldn’t find the do’s and dont’s anywhere so I was wondering what that means exactly? Are they talking about dont deadhead the plant to make more grow? I just want to make sure I don’t hurt the plant if I decide to go with those seeds.

    Thanks guys!!!

      All shipping times are back to normal (meaning, they are shipped within 2 to 7 business days)- except for BULK Orders(1oz+, 1lb., 1 Kilo, etc) of which we have received a high Volume of Orders, thus causing a delay- since we have to process all the seeds from their dried pods.
      The “Note” at the Bottom Left that you are referring to, is something that was written on Izmir Oil & Spice‘s old Website (as that is just a screenshot when it was open several years ago).
      But it didn’t have anything to do with Deadheading. And I can’t talk about what it WAS referring to, as it goes against our Policies to discuss the subject, but it had more to do with the Law, than with Growing Techniques.

    Just came across your website. Your store looks really. There are no stories in my area that are anything like this. I will be ordering soon.

    Hi just asking for a few pointers. I understand your busy. Been trying to read up as much as I can. Just ordered some afgan seeds and don’t want to mess them up (when they arrive) especially since they are pricey. I live in zone 7,was going to go for an early spring planting. I have a cool room in my house that is about 55 to 60 degrees. Would I have luck starting then inside then under lights or directly sowing into good soil? I Never buy gmos but made an exception here. Does this mean the seeds will be sterile? Any other pointers would be appreciated since I’ve never seen this strain. Thanks
