|guest||Horrible customer service. I am letting every message board know that they are a horrible company.||United States||March 2017|

|guest||Gorilla enticed me with a promotional seed offer - Barneys Blue Cheese. Its the reason I placed the order. They were stocked out on the item I did order, even though they took my order, and tried to talk me into a swap which was not appealing to me. Then they went ahead and sent out order. I received correct items ordered, but they swapped me out on the promotional with an arbitrary substitution. Whats worse, the seed showed up flat as a pancake. Their customer service explained that it would not be cost effective to send me out a replacement seed. They also explained that they send out the seeds the way they got them from the breeder. Does that mean the packer knew the seed was flatted before they packed it? Quite possibly. Anyways their explanation for the substitution was that they reserve the right to do that and the promotions only go until supplies run out. I asked them if it was my fault they delayed my order because of the stock-out. They were not sympathetic. They said next time i order, they might throw in a couple extra seeds but that was about all they could do for me. I told them fat chance in getting interested in any of their free seeds in the future if its arbitrary what they send me. I think this kind of attitude doesnt deserve a repeat order.||United States||December 2016|
|guest||Ordered west coast og and white widow and they were out of white widow so offered me a free upgrade to the widow that they charged me for, and the the west coast og seeds i got were all crap i got 5 and they were all under a foot and a half with under a quarter on each. The widow was ok decent yeild by no means an upgrade of white widow and i had to pay more. I got girl scout cookie from another bank and it kills the widow. Never again garbage||United States||October 2016|
|guest||Purchase 10 Kandy Kush with 0 out 10 germinating. No offer to replace seeds as their reply stated there only for souveniers. No problems with free seeds or Fruit Juice that germinated 7 of 10 seeds. I have a request for notice on out of stock seeds but not sure if buying from people that dont stand by theyre product is a company that I want to fund!||United States||August 2016|
|guest||First time buyer and for sure a last time.I was sent bogus seeds that were either old or no good at all.Most of them would crack the shell and the tap root wouldnt grow no more than 1/8th of an inch,and then do nothing more when placed in various planting modes.I feel I was ripped off,very dissatisfied with your products.||United States||August 2016|
|guest||Very good stock of seeds and quick delivery. But I have serious questions over their costings and the quality of seeds. When payment was made it was through a foreign bank account which charged me over 5% extra for currency exchange, this is not apparent at time of purchase. Most annoying though was that a high percentage of seeds would not germinate. From my first order only 60% germinated, which I thought was not very good. As they seemed one of the only places that had strains I wanted I tried them again, and got terrible results again. From 13 seeds only 8 germinated, which is about the same failure rate again. With the combination of hidden charges and poor quality seeds they are actually costing me almost twice the advertised price.||United Kingdom||May 2016|
|guest||Sent the money through Western Union April 13. Was sent an email stating they couldnt find that i did not sent mtcn number. I get another email saying they found the information I sent. Days later i get another email and was told they couldnt pick it up because WU wont allow the receiving name i was given to pick up any more money orders. Went back to WU store and resent money under new name supplied by gorilla. April 28 received another email that there was no money sent under that mtcn number. I drove for a third time to WU and confirmed that ALL the numbers were correct and there were no typos. Called "Gavin" at the U.S. number and he had several excuses from blaming it on the people in the U.K. to blaming it on WU. Cant be both of their faults so he lies. I was very polite and tried to explain to him that i checked with WU and confirmed the money was waiting to be picked up since the day i sent it. Gavin hung up on me. I immediately went to WU and pulled the money. Lost 26 dollars in WU fees, quite a bit of time, and my whole growing season. I guess i should consider myself lucky that it only cost me $26 dollars to learn this lesson. This was my first time attempting to order from Gorilla but have ordered a dozen times from other companies with zero problems. Maybe some folks have success with Gorilla but this was my experience. BEWARE - there is a good chance that at minimum you will be out time and money. Never again will I be scammed by these people.||United States||April 2016|
|guest||Very friendly,sent emails from bank processing to mailing, kept well informed about my order. I ordered something that they just ran out of, offered me a same strain ( gave me 5 seeds when I only ordered 3. )for same price. will definitely buy from again. Good people...MGK||United States||April 2016|

|Johnwayne||Ordered from other seedbanks before. By far one of the fastest shippers. I recommend them.||March 2016|
|guest||Great customer service!!! Hands down! Sherry and gavin will take care of you EVERYTIME!||United States||February 2016|
|guest||Order status excellent for seed temporarily out of stock. Willing to work with you to get order complete. Havent used seed yet to determine quality but came in original grower packs.||United States||February 2016|
|MrFrench||Just received my order, right on time. Everything was top notch, very intuitive web page, great variety, very reasonable prices and most importantly AMAZING customer service. I must have contacted them a dozen times with random questions. They were super helpful and quick to respond. I was made aware of everything from payment received to shipment tracking. I found them on grasscity forums. I will be a return customer of the gorilla in the future based on my positive experience alone. Cannot recommend highly enough!???
|guest||ive made a few orders from gorilla now, tried other UK seedbanks but im a regular on the gorilla facebook competition page now and thats where i found them. have won some nice beans, stickers n stuff on the forums from them but not facebook yet. real genuine people.
this is probably the only seedbank whose workers have a green thumb. any problems or questions then you can talk to them on the forums or facebook so dont need to wait for emails like everbody else 10 out o10 perfect
thanks gorilla seeds bank.... keep her lit
