My name is James, and I am the owner of Seed Needs LLC. First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone for checking out the site. I'd also like to thank you all for your continued interest in our seed products as well. I can't express how grateful I am to have such wonderful customers. My dream of becoming an entrepreneur and someday owning my own business came to me early on, at the age of only 15 years old. It all started with juggling high school with a part time job, as well as managing my own online shop. As time went on, I quit my part time job and began to focus solely on Seed Needs. Eventually I listed to Amazon, and to my surprise, customers loved my seed packets and seed products. From that admiration I was driven to better my products and services even further. Through the years, I have gained so much knowledge, not only from the farming and seed industry, but from all of you as well. I have taken constructive criticism and turned it into the products that you now see today. "The sky is the limit, said those who never dreamt of reaching for the stars." - James Ev Safe Shipping Bubble Mailers: Seed Needs ships the vast majority of seed products out in bubble mailers, for added protection from moisture.
