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.

Texas Paintbrush Flower Seed
250 mg (roughly 2800 seeds, sows 100 square feet)
This Texas native covers hills and roadsides in a rich red-orange carpet from March to May. The single erect stems stand 8-24 inches high. Pairs beautifully with Texas Bluebonnet, and attracts butterflies.
Texas paintbrush takes some care to establish. Germination may take 30-120 days, and requires soil temperatures between 55°F--65°F. Seeds are generally started in August-December. The seeds are very small and should be sown directly on the soil surface and lightly raked in. Texas Paintbrush develops a single slender tap root, so young plants do not transplant well. Grows best in full sun and well drained soil.
