4/7/2021 HRSeeds.com is moving to a new host soon!
Since the beginning of the year (2021), WIX host has been failing to provide premium services (that we pay a pretty penny for!) and they refuse to correct the issues. One of the main issues are these 5XX errors that affects all the main search engines. HRSeeds has been de-listed from google, Yandex, Bing and more for several weeks now and WIX has done nothing to rectify the problems. Once we find a new host and redirect our domain to it, you will be able to buy seeds again there. But for now visit us on eBay to purchase seeds. If you don't see the seeds your looking for contact us and we will make the listing for you. We do plan on moving all our inventory to eBay but this will take several weeks as we have over a 1000 products! In closing, The biggest mistake we made was choosing WIX as a host as we have been warned not to build an eCommerce website on WIX because of all the bugs and their of lack of care fixing problems! Again visit us on eBay for now as we rebuild our website with a reputable host like WordPress or Go Daddy.
2/6/2021 Premium Memberships coming soon!
We will be offering Bronze/FREE, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Commercial memberships on HRSeeds.com. With the massive increase in daily visitors coming to HRSeeds.com, it is becoming harder and harder to keep our inventory stocked to meet the demand. We want to be able to supply a wide variety of seeds to everyone but due to our limitations on some varieties, we have to prioritize these high demand items to those who become premium members. Also we received many request for creating commercial accounts for larger companies and this is where they can create their accounts. There are many benefits to these memberships and are priced very reasonably. As of 2/6/2021 HRSeeds.com is still operating on a "first come first serve" basis. But in the future we will be moving over to the premium memberships. For now just the FREE (Bronze) and commercial memberships are available.
2/2/2021 Updating our members area and some glitches
The members section has some glitches at this time and we are working on getting this fixed. The members area is a third party app that is provided by the host and we have very little control on things that need to be fixed. In the meantime, if you want to get access to your profile after you log in you have to click on where it says followers or following and it will bring you to your full profile where you can see your wishlist, past purchases, about me page and so on.

12/26/2020 PayPal may be getting phased out in 2021
In recent weeks, PayPal has been causing some problems that we are not happy with. For about 5 days PayPal has locked us out of our account simply because we could not receive a text for verification even though we have been a loyal PayPal customer for almost 20 years. They were rude, hung up on us several times and gave us no solution for us to transfer funds out of PayPal. If you are a PayPal only user, make a comment HERE and let us know if removing PayPal from our website would cause problems for you.
12/24/2020 NEW Search Bar permanently added!
We have been trying to add a search bar since the inception of HRSeeds. All the search bars we tried in the past were sub par and didn't work well. Now we have a new search bar we are fairly satisfied with. If you know what your looking for you can now do a site search and see if we have that item. We are considering adding a full google internet search bar page where you can search the whole net for the items you're looking for but that is in the future. If you don't see the seed items you are looking for, you can try to add that to your wish list or contact us with your request and we may add it to our future offers!

5/14/2020 Important HRSeeds Notice: Fake HRSeeds Websites.
In the recent months and weeks, A number of websites have been popping up Impersonating HRSeeds brand and website selling goods and services under the HRSeeds brand name. THIS IS NOT US! DO NOT BUY FROM THESE WEBSITES!! We are only selling seeds on HRSeeds.com, Ebay and Square at this time. Yes we do have a number of Beta websites like HellFirechili.com, Chilisforever, HRseedsBlack, Heirloom Reviews.com and a few others but we are NOT accepting payments on these sites. Only make your purchases from the websites mentioned in red above. These fictitious websites may be selling counterfeit products under our brand name! This is the official HRSeeds.com website and everything else is not us. This may be the case for amazon as well. We are NOT selling on Amazon at this time.

4/10/2020 HRSeeds Update in Regards to Coronavirus COVID-19
HRSeeds is being affected by the Coronavirus, COVID-19 crisis like most other businesses. So as most of you know, COVID-19 is affecting all business big and small. We are experiencing shortages in seed supply and can not restock our inventory due to most other seed suppliers having shut their business down for a few weeks. This has put a major strain on supply and demand across the globe! As a result, we are unable to restock our inventory till things start flowing again so you will see things OUT OF STOCK on some items. We are also experiencing delays in shipping in some cases depending on the region of the world you are located in. Some of our shipping options have been disabled like Fedex and DHL for now due to the complexities involved in using their services, so please only use USPS as your shipping choice. All payment options are unaffected for the time being. If this changes we will post it here.
HRSeeds.com has been getting a massive amount of traffic far more then we usually get by a factor of 10! This is causing our seed supply to go out of stock fast. We have sold more seed in the last 6 weeks then in the whole year of 2019! This is a good thing but the bad thing is we didn't see this coming and did not prepare for such a massive influx of demand. As a result, we are running out of supplies to process orders like printer paper, ink, labels ETC... along with seed supplies. So we are printing shipping labels and packing slips on older orders just so we do not have to shut down our website. We can not get things like paper, ink envelopes for several weeks as the supply and demand chain slowly crumbles down. However we are going to remain online right down to the last sheet of paper! So disregard any an all writing on the opposite side of your packing slips. If your a member, you can store all your orders in your account and you can print your orders from there if you need to.
We are processing orders on a first come first serve biases at this time. So there may be a 1 to 3 day delay before we can ship your order out so please have patients during this crisis. Our printers are running all day long so we may run out of ink and paper and if this happens we will just refund your order but we don't think will be an issue at the moment.
In closing, HRSeeds and all its employees do NOT have corona virus. We are all doing well with our health! We are located high in the Appalachian mountains of Pennsylvania and also have a "shelter in place" order state wide which reduces our exposure risk by 90+%. We are a committed seed supplier and will remain open right down to the last seed and will continue to serve the general public the best we can. If there are any changes or we have no choice but to go off line, then we will post it here. We hope all of you are doing well and staying safe! We will beat this thing and become stronger as an outcome!
