Always a must in our garden

Have grown Black Seeded Simpson for many years as my dad did before me - it never disappoints. A must for every garden.

Pinetree has always been good to me

I've been ordering from Pinetree for several years and purposefully made comparisons by buying the same seed from other vendors. I keep coming back because I always get better results here. Keep up the great work. Thanks.

And oldie but a goodie

Mild, tender, goes through several cuttings in my "cut and come again" container garden. Dependable and very slow to bolt.
