I love this mix.

I planted these this fall in a plastic covered tunnel. They are doing great. We’ve been eating it for a couple of weeks. Much more to come. You can watch the progress on my YouTube channel, https://youtu.be/A6l2n5lXnuQ

I’ve been buying seeds from Pine Tree for years. I’ve always had a great experience, and never any crop failures.

Seeds from Pinetree Garden

My shopping experience was easy. We are so happy with all of the seeds we purchased. We used them in a seed planting course. Part of the purchase price of the course included leaving them at the greenhouse for the staff to water for three weeks alongside the other course participants’ plantings. I would love to share with you a picture of the flats alongside each other. After two weeks from planting our seedlings they grew so quickly, especially as compared to our other course participants flats. Even the staff was amazed at how quickly they grew. We will always buy our seeds from you. We are thrilled with our progress so far. This is the first year we have tried gardening.

good for fall planting in mid south

Lettuce seeds don't germinate well in my garden so I put the seeds in a damp paper towel and placed it in a zip lock baggie. After a couple days most or all of them had germinated and I put them in the garden still on the paper towel which I had divided into several pieces. I covered them lightly with compost. They grew rapidly and I was soon able to transplant them for better spacing. This is my first experience with a fall garden and I couldn't be happier with the lettuce. It's colorful, interesting and tasty.
