I purchased the Fall Seed Collection for some container gardening this autumn and have been very pleased with the results. Germination rate was fantastic and I had to do much more thinning than I usually do from store-bought seeds. The little growing guide helped with varieties I haven't grown before (hello, kohlrabi). All of my plants are hardy and healthy and I'm already enjoying the early harvests. Looking forward to maturity on the longer growers. Will be buying the Granny's kitchen garden pack for spring. Thanks so much!
I planted several varieties over the past couple years. These have been the most reliable producers so far. Averaged 10-15 lbs. one larger one about 20. Nothing remotely close to 40 lbs. that’s ok. Huge ones are a pain to break down.
I planted a whole bunch of this to attract bees and butterflies. It grows like crazy. However I protected the seed with hay because my first round died because of the hot Florida sun and lack of rain lately.
We started these indoors in January. We transplanted them twice and finally out to our raised bed (full coastal sun). The plant is massive and the tomatoes are TASTY! The best little tomatoes we have ever had. We will likely plant them in a separate bed next year since they grow to such a large size and can crowd out other plants.

Butterfly Milkweed Asclepias tuberosa
250 mg packet, ~50 seeds
Help restore Monarch Butterfly habitat by planting this attractive wildflower! Clusters of solid orange flowers bloom June through August. Bees love their nectar, too!
This herbaceous perennial thrives in zones 3-9. Tolerates shallow and rocky soil, drought and deer pressure. Low-maintenance, prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Plants grow 1-3 feet high and spread 1-2 feet wide. Direct sow, as the taproot plants do not transplant well. Seedlings are easy to establish, but may take 2-3 years to flower. In the meantime, the foliage will provide critical habitat for Monarch Butterfly caterpillars.
Great for mass plantings, wildflower mixes, or even a sunny garden border.
