I absolutely love shopping with Pinetree Garden Seeds. I have honestly had a terrible year getting things going not because of Pinetree seeds germination (I have always had excellent success) or quality but because the covid pandemic and my own health issues dealing with MS and having a house guest 24/7 during the past 8 months. I have started not nearly enough of my seeds but they are all amazing so far! Thank you again. I hope that I can share some amazing photos as I did last year of the amazing seeds in full bloom or production. I just started Holy Basil in my greenhouse and am hoping we have a LATE summer and mild fall and late winter because I hope I have them all growing beautifully. Thanks for excellent service and great products.
Pinetree has a very good selection and good prices to go with it. These seeds arrived too late to use them this year, but I've stashed them away for 2021. Here's to all those new gardeners out there - keep it up!
I plant this almost every year just so I can smell it! It has the most beautiful scent of any plant I know. I wish I could find a perfume with the scent. They are fairly easy to grow but you can't just throw them in the dirt and forget them. I cover them with a dusting of seed-starting soil mix and keep them watered until they sprout. After that they are pretty hardy.
I planted a couple of these seeds and got a wonderful, healthy plant. I plant many, many seeds of different kinds and only get about a 50% germination, so I am impressed that these seeds took off. I started it from a seed in a little container and planted it in the garden box when it got big. The plant took off and grew into a large plant quickly. But someone told me I needed to remove the plant from being around tomatoes, so I replanted it in a large pot. It is still growing and now it has seeds on it which I removed. This plant is great and I will use it in tea to help with sleep. I have another one growing in a little pot and it looks just as healthy as the first one. I will have to find a very large pot to transplant it into soon.
Growing in the window now--about one inch tall.
