I had high hopes for these seeds and even purchased multiple packs, but had zero germination. I have no idea why, given how much the other Botanical Interests seeds I purchased seemed to thrive.
Owner Response: Hi Ariel, We are sorry you had difficulty germinating these seeds. They aren't too tricky but these seeds do require darkness to germinate so they need to buried at the recommended depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Also, soil temperatures (which lags behind air temperatures in spring) will need to be near 70 degrees F for them to germinate. Rest assured our seeds are tested regularly to ensure germination rates exceed federal standards and our own. A customer service agent will be contacting you to help.
