I grew my hyssop plant from these seeds; the seeds went straight into the group in my Zone 4 climate. They grew the year I planted them but it was the following year that they really exploded into amazing, flowering plants. And yeah, the bees and other pollinators love hyssop! Really a great plant. Thanks to Botanical Interests! Never had bad seeds from these guys; I've been buying from them for years.

Greetings from Zone 7a

The package said to expect sprouts to emerge in 14 - 31 days. I had sprouts in four days. It was a very exciting and unexpected surprise!
