Ebay Seeds?

Has anyone ordered flower seeds off eBay? I am SO disappointed, as I spent a goodly chunk of money getting enough to plant my new flower garden. Many different varieties, guaranteed to be fresh, all US sellers. They are not coming up, even easy ones like my two favorites, purple cone flowers and black-eyed susans. They were planted over a month ago now.

All the tubers I planted are coming up fine. The seeds I bought from Baker Seed are coming up. I don't get it. I can't believe all of these sellers are rip offs.

Ideas?

2. I haven't tried it

I'm big on ebay, but I don't think I'd buy seeds there. I don't buy seeds locally either because you just never know how old they are and what conditions under which they have been stored. Best to deal with reputable mail order seed companies to make sure you get good ones. Nothing is more frustrating than starting seeds at just the right time only to find out they are duds.
