Intensely bright fuchsia-red plants are just much brighter than most Amaranths we think. Red Garnet can be used as a cooked green, allowed to flower for a dramatic display in the garden or grow it for grain! Some folks share the grain with the birds attracting beautiful buntings, goldfinches and other flying jewels. Red Garnet Amaranth will make a stunning addition to your edible flower or vegetable garden. We've had this beautiful plant grow to 10-12 feet! You'll get dozens of seed heads that will make beautiful arrangements or produce lots of seed!
I bought some of a few years back, and was not expecting them to get so Y'all! They grew at least 10 feet tall, and the seed heads grew so heavy, that doubled over, which made harvesting the seed much easier! Then mice got into the bin, so I never got to eat it.
Feedback: it would be really helpful if you would put the average mature height and width of the plants on each page. It would really help with planning.
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.
