    Hi,
    On my quest to get as many seeds from around the world as I could, I stumbled on this site:

    http://www.freeplant.net/

    It looks wonderful with plenty of plants that the site pledges to send seeds free around the world! However, I think the catch is that it will get your email address and house address then send you nothing.

    It looks that it is a trap for collecting information and probably sell it. I searched google for: is http://www.freeplant.net/ a scam? and it came out with several complaints about the site which confirmed my suspicion.

    Any body succeeded to get free seeds from this site?

    I wouldn't get anything from them either as the seeds could come with virus's or diseases.
