    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.

    I just planted it yesterday in my greenhouse. So I don’t know yet. I am trying the winged bean in there on a trellis. I was a bit disappointed with the seed swap on the zucchini. Eight ball i have had in the past and they grew too large too quickly. Mainly use zucchini for zoodles as I have a wheat allergy. Those won’t fit in my spiralizer. This is why I wanted the long caserta. An email would of been good for a heads up. Let me make another Choice then. The seeds of the pepino melon were almost non exsistant, only 5 in the parchment pouch. Wasn’t it suppose to be 10? I hope I got them where they were suppose to go as I needed a magnifying glass to see them. I am limited on my gardening now as I have spondylolithesis in my spine. I want the seeds I ordered. I guess pine tree isn’t as consistent as other seed companies. This is why I dropped you. Thought I’d give you another chance since I wasn’t planted a big garden and you carry the small seed packets. Also the bar code sticker on the back of some of the packets is a pain in the *** to get off and the packet was demolished by the time I worked it off. What is up with that?? E Raivo
