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.

Frosty Berseem Clover
Frosty Berseem Clover (60 days)
Untreated, and with "Nitro-Coat" (Organic OMRI Listed). An inert clay coating for easier planting.
Berseem Clover is a summer annual which is an excellent cover crop well suited to winter-kill situations. Adding up to 8 tons of forage per acre if watered properly, it can fix from 125-200 pounds of nitrogen per acre. As a green manure, Berseem adds a ton of biomass to the soil - not only accumulating Nitrogen, but adding over 3,500 pounds per acre of organic matter to the soil each year. It can be used as a companion crop if planted with Oats or hay, and is a fast growing forage for your animals - with up to 25% protein, it is better than crimson clover or alfalfa.
My order came complete and on time. Since I just broadcasted it one month ago, it's not yet produced a stand. I'm hopeful it will grow very well with my brome grass.
The staff at SSC was very helpful and the company is one of the few that carry OMRI certified Frosty Berseem. I'm very excited about this clover since it high protein and is nitro-fixing without fungus problems or causing bloat in my horses.
