OTHER: Perilla Frutescens is a fragrant Asian herb with decorative zig-zag edged leaves. The edible leaves & flowers have a flavor that is somewhere between a citrus mint basil with spicy hints of cinnamon, cloves, & cumin. Green Shiso is popular in Japanese cuisine, & has a wide variety of culinary uses. Enjoy Shiso sprouts or microgreens, or use the fresh leaves of the plant in salads, sushi, or rice & meat dishes. The edible flowers are also used in salads & as an edible garnish. Dried leaves can be used as an herb for flavoring, or made into a tea.
Green Shiso is a "cut & come again" plant whose fast growth allows it to easily be grown as an annual in climates where it is not winter hardy. They also make a wonderful container plant.

I am having issues germinating most of the seed I purchased from this seller. So far only 9 seeds has had success.

I tried to plant them in 3 tries. Nothing came out. I probably just got a bad batch for the Shiso leaves. Other seeds from the same purchase are fine.

Somehow grew ground cherries, not perilla. So disappointing.

Haven't been able to get these to germinate at all.

They arrived and I planted them. So far so good!
