I received my seeds in a timely manner. I had over 50% germination rate for peppers. The herb had a germination rate of close to 90%. My only issue - Dodder (parasitic plant) on the Sweet Thai Basil. I had to reach out to my MSU Master Gardener Extension office to figure out the issue. Apparently the seeds were infected as it was the only plants exhibiting the growth. Unfortunately, I didn't know this was an issued prior to contacting MSU and had planted the basil in my raised beds. This led to an infestation of my entire 4'x8' bed.

Just wanted to update that a few more of the herbs are finally sprouting. I now have about 25% germ rate as far as the herbs go.

Germination on some herbs was excellent, for example basil. However, some (mint, oregano, lavender) had zero germination. Interestingly a packet of lavender I picked up at our local hardware store germinated very well. Still can't condemn a company with small packets and low prices because I think it is such a great idea, but I probably will stick with Stokes or other seed companies. I'd rather pay the $1 or $2 for a good sized packet and store seeds or give away seedlings if needed, rather than have to buy another packet and replant.

Please do not sell (or plant) Isatis Tinctoria, Dyer's Wode. It is considered a noxious weed especially in the western united states. It out competes native plants, it is not a forage plant so there is no animal grazing controls. The only controls are herbicides and hand pulling. Some state may even have fines for planting this non-native noxious plant. It can and has escaped gardens which is why it is such a problem.
