The seeds (10 different ones) came as expected. I cannot say anything thing else, I just got my seeds and grew leafy greens. Out of the 2, one sprouted faster than expected but other one, I saw 2 or May be a few sprouts 🌱. The remaining , I will use them for next season.

Try it. There is nothing wrong In trying a new place and give them an opportunity to serve you.
