Timely shipment. Seeds look good. Probably could have used more information about soaking and stratification! I used a combination of soaking, pliers, and clamps to carefully break the hard outer shell in order to access the viable seeds. Got two of the 20 to germinate within a month.

I buy alot of seeds Alot sometimes buying at all kind of sellers mostly looking for sales packaging and later to see best growing germination and see quality and quantity is correct they are usually 100% good seeds sometimes I won't plant it correct even though they have awesome directions . The only thing is the mail is slow from time to time and they loose mail but so does other dealers but you don't get better service than them they are the best sellers most generous in seed amount . which is really good because sometimes you have to show seeds they you aren't used to or a new Garner so having a few more than needed so you have enough to try a few times to get it right ty Tammie
