very disappointed, but could have been the late planting- early June of 2021
Frank from NY
Owner Response: Hi Frank, We are sorry these seeds didn't germinate for you. We recommend sowing earlier than June because the heat makes the essential task of keeping seeds moist difficult; requiring watering several times a day. A customer service agent will contact you by email to help. Rest assured, quality is very important to us and we have our seeds tested frequently to ensure germination rates meet federal and our own standards.
