For some reason these didn't grow. Was disappointed but am going to try again in Spring .

Owner Response: Hi Lisa, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. We thought we'd share a few tips. Just press these seeds into the soil surface: don't bury them. Also, they take a long time to germinate, 21 days even in ideal conditions. Because of these two factors, it takes some diligence to keep the seeds evenly moist since they dry more quickly on the soil surface. I am not sure if you tried starting them indoors but it may be easier to get them going and keep an eye on condtions. We hope this helps.
