Good Variety

By: on 17 July 2015
All the seeds planted germinated within three weeks although it is a cold winter here in Tasmania (kept the punnets on top of the hot water system during the nights). The only problem with this variety is the use by date which is December 2015 - and I hoped to have at least three years before expiration. This is why I only gave a 3 star rating. ______________________________ Hi John. Thank you for your feedback. We're glad to hear that you experienced good germination even though there was only one year on the 'Best Before' date. It is quite common for seeds to out last the 'Best Before' date as this is really to be used as an indicative guide only & is largely determined by how well seeds are kept. If seeds are stored in optimal conditions, ie. placed in a well-sealed container in a cool, dark place, the germination rate could stay quite high for much longer than indicated on the packet.
