Superseeding our expectations!

Hello Superseeds! My wife and I are thrilled with the success we have had growing plants from your wonderful seeds! In light of the covid19 situation, with some foods in short supply...we feel that this is the perfect season to start our own "Victory Garden". We plan to do some canning and freezing and try to be a bit more "self sufficient" in these trying times. Based on our success with this years plants...we plan to expand our vegetable and flower gardens next year. As of now, everything we have purchased from your company is growing just great!! P.S. Our Basil is ready for a bigger pot already!! Thanks again for your great seed products. "Superseeds" makes success easy to grow! Gary Deiboldt

Italiano classico basil

Great! Recieved products always within timely fashion. Started the italiano classico basil seeds on two different occaisions, have had great success definetely a high germination rate! Both plantings were about two weeks apart and have little basil plants galore! Plenty for my basil pot, and plenty for transplant this spring. Thank you, will purchase seeds again in the future. Love your herb selection.
