    The seeds were great. Everything germinated well and is doing great in my garden. The lettuce is not as tasty as I had hoped which is why it is getting 4 stars and not five

    Germinated quickly, unsure of germination rate but looks to be very good. Suspecting the rate is close to 100%. Will post updates.

    All the seeds I planted sprouted and were doing well, unfortunately they died. Nothing todo with the product but everything to do with the gardener. Will try again and post an update.
