Bigger seed packs needed

I am grateful that you carry exotic varieties like nepitella don’t get me wrong However I bought fenugreek and nepitella and in both cases I think the number of seeds per pack was almost absurdly low - nepitella in particular said 50 seeds and I only counted 42 - I think you should sell packs in units of at least 100 or preferably 200 Just my 2 cents - I don’t have a huge herb garden and multiple packs of each weren’t enough

Pinetree Garden Seeds

Hi Charles, I apologize, but I just had a chance to read through some past reviews and see that you received a short packet of seeds! I know it is late in the season, but I would be happy to send you another packet of seeds or another variety, or I can offer a credit for your next order, whichever you would prefer. As for the small packets of seeds we offer, we do our best to keep quantity and pricing at at balanced price point to allow backyard gardeners to try a wider variety of seeds at an affordable cost. Please let me know what I can do to remedy the short seed packet for you. ~Tammy
