I think the seedbank should replace them as they are the one you paid the money to, they are the one you entered into a contract with to provide you with x amount of viable cannabis seeds in return for x amount of money.
And then if there is something wrong with the seeds then the seedbank should seek reimbursement from the breeder.
That's how it works in the real world; I buy a product from a retail store, it doesn't work so I take it back and they refund me and then claim the cost of the product from the manufacturer.
Non Fanboy here.
Cannabis Seed collecting is a perfectly legit & legal hobby in a few places while at the same time it is illegal to germinate said seeds. UK being a perfect example of this.
So... Read the fine print before ever making a purchase because there are some tight assed seed bank that will refuse to respond to germination questions.
One poster, I don't recall who, said it best.
When you contact the seed seller in such a place it may be best to just claim that your souvenir seeds got wet & were, as a result, destroyed and no longer collectible.
Some banks will work with you under all circumstances.
