Herb seeds - Zaatar

I really do like ordering my herb seeds for Pinetree. I have had great success germinating the seeds and getting lovely crops my zaatar grew quite well

thoughts on zaatar

I always have a good experience shopping with Pinetree Seeds! As to my Zaatar seedlings, this plant is easy to start from seed and easy to grow. To me, it tastes like a combination of oregano and thyme. I like it! Rebecca Cook
