No germination

I have been getting seeds from botanical interest for a year now and this is the first time my seeds didn't germinate, Quite disappointed, packaging was different this time too.

We may have planted these when it was too hot, but the sprouts only grew to a few inches tall and then just stopped. Never grew, flowered, or anything.
E from MD
Owner Response: Hi E, Thank you for sharing your feedback. From your other reviews, it reads as though you sowed these seeds outside. Peppers will rarely be successful when sown outdoors. We recommend sowing peppers indoors (see packet instructions) in order to achieve the proper soil temperature for germination and to give pepper plants a head start since they take a very long time to mature. You can find more tips for success on the seed packet and in the Sow and Grow article linked in the Learn More tab on this product page.
