Pennington Seed in Charlotte, North Carolina - Husband wasted money twice. Shame on him.
So in mid Sept., husband bought 2 bags of Ky 31 @ 79.99 at Lowes and nothing came up So he goes back and buys 2 more bags same thing Oct. 10. So now, he has spent over 300. and not a thing happening. I am so mad that he wasted our money. We are on a fixed income of S.S. only. I could have used that money for doctor/hospital bills. He had hernia surgery in August. I am going to call Pennington and complain. Husband says they won't do anything to make it right. I am going to try.

I didn't like
- That they reduced seed amounts and added 50 percent fillers
- Offer seed with no fillers or drop price 50 percent
