OTHER: This Cassia has large fragrant flowers that attract birds, bees, and butterflies. They are shrubby plants that are able to tolerate dryness well and can be grown in containers. Alexandrian Senna has lovely foliage and very interesting seed pods. These plants are native to Egypt, Sudan, India, & Somalia, all of which still grow them commercially. They have been used since ancient times for medicinal purposes, and are still used today.
These seeds are difficult to remove from their pods and do not need to be removed from their pods to be planted, so we are leaving them in the pods. These seed pods are very thin/flat, and the seeds are easy to see/feel through the seed pods. To plant the seeds (instructions included on seed packet), you can simply cut the pod with a pair of scissors to separate your desired # of seeds per sowing site and lay them flat on the soils surface. (The seeds do need to have boiling water poured over them in a bowl and allowed to soak for 24 hours, but that is not because of the pod and would still have to be done if they were removed from the pod.) We are guaranteeing that you will receive 50 plus seeds in the pods you receive while the # of pods that make up this 50 seed quantity may vary.
