German has been better for me.

Germination was good but much slower than the German variety from pinetree (eventually getting about every 3 out of 4 to sprout, and some started sprouting when I was about ready to give up on them). The plants are healthy, but really lagging behind the Germans. I don't think this is quite 350 seeds. But I decided to just save some for seeds instead of repurchasing, since the seed count seems to be off for the chamomiles.

Grew well

The seeds I started indoors are doing well. Not so the seeds I direct seeded - we've had very little rain and that seems to have done them in. But the transplanted ones are getting quite big with my sporadic watering...

Great Germination Rate

Great quality seeds that germinated in a few days. After a lot of thinning - the seeds are very tiny - I end up with a dozen healthy seedlings. Time Will tell how well they handle the great outdoors but so far so good.

Love your selection, prices, service

Have been ordering from pine tree seeds for over 20 years. Had a hard time finding Roman Chamomile, so glad you had it, thanks.
