Great germination!

All of the Chive seeds I planted germinated. I have already clipped some of them for adding to recipes, salads and baked potatoes. Great flavor! I love Pine Tree for there prices and how fresh their seeds are. I have purchased from them for years and have never been disappointed.

Chive Seeds

Wonderful experience with Pinetree Seeds. A friend of mine (years ago) and I used to order from Pinetree. Reasonable prices and amount of seeds per packet, great value for money. Quality seeds. What else is there?

I loved getting all my seeds in the mail..mostly tomatoes and herbs this year. I started them in the greenhouse and after a short delay due to weather, they are growing like crazy in my raised beds. We have a very short growing season so that is very important to us. I love the selection as well.
