What Our Customer Reviews Say

As you can see from the customer reviews collected below, we here at Arkham’s Botanical pride ourselves on offering the best possible service, garnering us some lovely repeat customers (and a few new friends) in the process.

We’ve been selling various seeds (mostly Acacia, Desmanthus, Phalaris and Trichocereus species) through eBay on and off for almost a year now and are happy to report that we’ve a 100% Positive Feedback record from our eBay customers, a selection of which is listed below. We’ve now decided to stop selling on eBay (due to PayPal being American government puppets, “customer” fraud and wanting to focus our full attention on our website)!

Further, since we launched the Arkham’s Botanical online store, we’ve been pleased to receive some pretty glowing feedback from customers there too! We strive to please by going the extra mile, offering quality products, well-packaged orders, speedy delivery and friendly service – we’re in this for the long haul, after all…
