BAD WEEDS ALERT! Who to stay away from. Safety tips on buying seeds locally

Recommended Posts

As we know, buying/selling seeds is still illegal which means the trade is still essentially underground. Unfortunately that does allow the underground thugs to breed so this thread is here to alert people to local scammers.

Here's a few tips to keep in mind when buying seeds :

  • Check the person's/business rep
  • Contact other buyers or read reviews from other buyers. Speak to people who have grown out their seeds.
  • See if they have a website or Facebook page
  • Get a clear understanding of where the seeds are being sourced from and from what breeders. If the seeds are just "Afghani Kush" and the guy doesn't know the breeder or can't mention any name whatsoever then DON'T BUY!
  • If it's a local breeder find out where you can see examples of their genetics being grown. Get good pictures. Find out how long they have been breeding for.
  • If it feels wrong don't do it.

Please steer clear of a character called Gareth Picton and his "business" Keystone seeds, formerly Wonderland Seeds. He operates under 2 profiles on Facebook. His Gareth Picton profile and alias profile Stone Ologist. Probably others

The guy is an outright con, proven time and time again by the countless people he has conned and still he continues to operate and catch more people so hopefully you read this before he catches you too.

He claims to sell legit seeds, feminised as well, that he sources from a local breeder. Just the other day a victim posted pics of his male plants grown from "fem seeds". He has conned one of our moderators with dud green seeds that didnt germ. He's most likely using bagseed or hemp seed...

He also claims to sell cannabis oil.

MF what kind. Thanks for the post. I rather buy seeds from the reputation shops. Would it be possible to post a list of shops people can buy from on the 420sa site? I know there is a thread. But to make it easy for all the new guys.

I find myself going to international seed banks and check the approved local suppliers in South Africa, then buy locally from one of the approved companies.
