Seed City Information
Seed City was founded in 2010 by a group of cannabis enthusiasts. With over a decade of industry experience they got together to create a seed bank of their own.
As a result, they are dedicated to earning a reputation for first-class customer service and high-quality seeds. Their enthusiasm for cannabis means that they are completely committed to being the fastest, cheapest, and easiest way to buy cannabis seeds.
The Seed City web site is busy, but easy to navigate. There are lots of money-off opportunities and their huge seed selection is easy to explore via lots of category links or shortcuts. As well as autoflowers, fems and regs, they also stock a merchandise range of clothing, bags, mugs and an inventive variety of seed storage options.
As a bonus, Seed City offers a price match guarantee. They will match any price offered by another online cannabis seed retailer. To claim this, you must email them with a link to the store where you have found the seeds cheaper.
Seed City stock over 5,000 strains, including old-favorites and some you’ve probably never heard of. To help you find what you’re looking for, they have a “Seed City Seed Selector”.
They claim it is the most in-depth, online marijuana strain categorization tool. It allows you to search for seeds based on price, breeder, type, flowering period, yield, strength, cup winners and many other characteristics.
Their impressive selection includes seeds from the world’s top breeders and covers autoflowers, feminized and regular varieties. These can be quickly chosen from the ‘cannabis seeds’ drop-down menu on the navbar, or just select the ‘seed type’ from the seed selector options.
The design of the Seed City site makes it ideal for quickly hunting out something specific. However, the category selections are so detailed that browsing for something to take your fancy is a breeze.
A feature I found particularly useful was that the list of breeders had an alphabetical drop-down bar to let you view one section, a letter at a time. Often, breeder tabs fill your screen and make it nearly impossible to select the one you want. This way of doing it is so much more user-friendly.
Another useful feature is that you have the option to sign in and create a favorite strain list. This allows you to keep track of your selection for a later purchase.
The selection of over 220 breeders includes:
- Afghan Selection
- Barney’s Farm
- Cali Kush Farms
- Dutch Passion Seeds
- Exotic Seeds
- Green House Seed Co.
- Mega Buds
- Sumo Seeds
- Sensi Seeds
- Royal Queen Seeds
The range at Seed City includes 4235 fems, over 1880 regs and more than 1160 autos. Some of their best-selling strains include:
- BCN Critical XXL Autoflower
- Purple Haze Auto
- Cream & Cheese CBD
- Gorilla Glue Auto
- Future #1
- Big Bud Auto
Seed City Payment Options
Seed City accepts payment by credit/debit card, cash, Bitcoin or Alipay. Most of these methods are available for orders to most countries, but if you cannot select your preferred option at checkout, it isn’t available in your area yet. If you have any problems or questions about payment methods, you can contact them directly.
Seed City will dispatch all orders paid for with cash as they receive your money. For UK and international bank transfers, email Seed City first for detailed instructions. If you prefer to pay by Bitcoin, you will receive an extra 10% off your order. By placing your order and then choosing ‘Bitcoin’ at checkout, you will find detailed instructions to guide you through the process. They recommend AliPay as a way to buy and use Bitcoin.
Seed City Shipping
Your order can be delivered to most countries worldwide and will arrive in plain packing with only essential information visible. To get an in-depth look at their packing methods, Seed City has created a useful visual guide.
All UK orders are eligible for Royal Mail Recorded Delivery. Postage rates to other countries are made available at checkout. You can opt for a stealth option for a small extra cost. This involves the seeds being repackaged in crush-proof tubes and hidden inside a gift. Most orders will arrive between 2 and 15 days.
They will re-send or refund any order sent using a ‘signed for’ delivery method if you haven’t received it within one month from the dispatch date. This is not provided for orders shipped to Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Iran, Japan, Pakistan, South Korea, South Africa or Turkey.
Returns can be arranged within 14 days of receiving your order. You then have another 14 days to get them back to Seed City to receive a refund or store credit. They only offer returns for seeds that are in the same state as when they were dispatched.
In many countries across the world, it is illegal to sell cannabis seeds for germination. Seed City will not sell seeds to people they believe will grow them, and consequently don’t offer a germination guarantee. However, if you aren’t happy with your seeds, you can contact them via their contact page.
Freebies and Discount Coupons
Seeds City regularly update their range of offers and discounts. Every month there is a new list of sale items, and they have a pager dedicated to reduced price bundles and special offers. A range of offers and discounts are always kept up to date on their latest offers page. Free seeds are also included with every order over £25.

Always delivered fast and stealth. Seeds all top quality, plenty of freebies too. Ordered plenty from here and always received quick on time. Very responsive company can’t do enough for you. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.Mike was particularly happy with his experience.
Never received package or letter. Appalled with service to be honest.
I have emailed seed city in regards to my order not arriving and they denied responsibility.However, John was not quite so happy.
Seed City responded but felt that they hadn’t been given a chance to address the problem:
Hello John, I would recommend you contact our customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your order number if you have not received your package. I am unsure how you can say you are appalled with our service when you don’t appear to have even allowed us a chance to look at the situation.
I’ve dealt with Attitude, Seedsman, Herbie’s, Headie Gardens, JBC, Greenpoint, Neptune and Seed-City and haven’t lost a package from any of them (touch wood).
Seed-City and Neptune are the guys I’d recommend, Seed-City have some cheaper gear and they offer stealth packaging and insurance where Neptune have more new US breeders.Over on Rollitup, well-known member Saffasteve has tried several seed banks and felt that Seed City ranked highly among them.
I had no issues. This was my first time trying ordering seeds online and everything went great. Didn’t have to alert my bank, no problems ordering, no hang ups. I did have some issues with the seeds but overall was happy.First-time grower on Reddit, jakamurph felt that his experience was positive overall.
