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.

Bonus** We've included in color, with illustrations, a 28-page growing guide, that is filled with recipes, seed saving, FAQ's and tips.
Our Non-GMO Culinary Herb seeds include:
Our AMAZING kit includes:
10 coconut coir pots (pre-labeled)
10 coconut coir soil disks
2 pre-molded raised trays for optimal water drainage. The trays with planters measure 20 ½" long x 4 ½" wide x 5 ¼" height.
It's been 2 weeks and most of the pots have sprouted herbs.
The one I want to love, with a fatal flaw
Its not trick photography, those pots are large. At 3x the volume of those grocery store windowsill gardens the package will be bigger than expected and makes a strong first impression. The pots are nice, formed from strips of coconut fiber they feel sturdy but degradable. The documentation is clear that they are not expected to stand up through multiple plantings so if the plants outgrow your window and you have space they could be direct buried in a garden. The trays are sturdy enough to move the plants carefully. Our package arrived missing 2 of the coir disks
The fatal flaw from the title is with the coconut coir. Coir is an inert medium, it is used in hydroponics because it has little to no effect on pH and nutrients. Knowing this I tried the first round of planting with just water to see, maybe it had enough to start or was laced with nutrients. As expected the seeds sprouted and grew to 1.5" tall then fell over dead 3 days later. The planting instructions suggest that compost tea can be used to improve growth of adult plants but I suspect it will by necessary for any success. I have started a test run watering with nutrient solution to verify that, five days out the sprouts are looking good. Perhaps if others have the similar experience they will include some compost tea or nutrient mix in a later revision.
