OTHER: Saltwort is a gourmet heirloom Japanese vegetable with long green juicy succulent leaves. It is prized for its ability to retain its crunchy texture even after cooking, & is popular in sushi, stir-fries, salads, as a side dish, & for flavoring meat & fish. It’s full of vitamins & minerals. Baby leaves can be harvested as early as 2 weeks, & can continue to be harvested until the plant flowers. Saltwort is native to salt marshes so it does great in coastal conditions, but grows just fine without any salt at all so can be grown in normal garden conditions. It can even tolerates poor soil, or be grown in containers.

I attempted to germinate these seeds several ways; using both the seller's instructions and recommendations from growers online. Unfortunately, I didn't have a single seed germinate, in spite of following instructions explicitly. From what I've read, these seeds have a short shelf life, so I suspect that they may have been old or improperly stored. None of the other seeds I purchased from this shop have germinated either, though the others I purchased do require cold stratification and germinate slowly and irregularly, so I'm reserving judgement on those until they germinate or it's clear that they're not going to.

No germination but other seeds that came with my order did excellent so I'm going to try again (and maybe try different methods) and might edit my review if the second batch grows.
