The plan for this year was to work with our partner in India and have them ship neem seeds directly to our customers so they’d be as fresh as possible. It didn’t work out that way. Covid has closed down the Indian mail service so the only way they can ship is via DHL, which isn’t a feasible option for most of our customers.
We sold out of our second batch — we had planted the first which are the image for this page — but we’ll have another batch arrived on August 29. We’ll sell them through September 12 , and then plant whatever is left. We will get at least one more shipment this summer while the seeds are still fresh enough to germinate well though.
It’s impossible to guarantee germination, even on very fresh seeds with very good growers. We think maybe something happens in the mail like radiation that destroys them, so this year we’re shipping in heavy-duty tin foil and hoping for the best.
This is a package of 20 seeds packed in sterile potting soil in case they decide to germinate on their way to you. Please read the growing directions before you order them so you’re ready to plant them the minute they arrive!
