What are the pros? Fresh seeds, easy to grow

What are the cons? None

Review:

I read all reviews before I bought this seeds. We are having winter and snow here so I'm growing those indoors under a plant lamp. I mixed soil with coconut fiber 50/50. I have a loose plastic foil over homemade paperpots. I planted these seeds one week ago-10 days and they have all started to grow and have the first little couple of babyleaves. Im keeping the soil moist and the plastic foil on top til they have gotten a bit bigger. I'm looking forward to make tea out of them! I have to wait.... This summer I will put them outside. Good luck to you!

What are the pros? Authentic for Thai cooking

What are the cons? Slow to grow

Review:

This seed takes patience but is so worth the wait. I, like some of the other reviewers, had my basil come up to a few millimeters high and then disappear. I moved it into an area that had full sun all day and two weeks later almost all of the seeds had sprouted (more than the first time). The first few inches took a few more weeks to grow but now I feel like it is growing almost an inch a day! I have kept the plants in the full sun area. It tolerated being transplanted well (after the second sprouting). This seed needs lots of sun, heat and water.

What are the pros? Smell, Taste

What are the cons? Hates Transplanting

Review:

Grew these in Toronto Ontario on a balcony in baskets. Hot full sun, water once a day, twice on heatwaves. All items I grow are in containers and all my reviews are bias towards that. Basil germinated well but every time I tried to start indoors early they would wither and die 50% of plants, none of the other bails did this that i grew so I know it was not damping-off. Same growing medium and tray. Of the small little plats that did make it, they disliked being transplanted and rarely grow bigger then 6" before dying or trying to set flower. Would highly recommend sowing direct and if in a container a large one.

What are the pros? Hard to find these seeds!

What are the cons? None

Review:

These seeds need warmth to germinate. Very Lightly cover the seeds with soil and make sure to keep them moist with a fine mist spray. They take time but sure worth the wait! Great seeds, good germination rate.

What are the pros? caterpillars love it, easy!

What are the cons? needs warm soil to germinate

Review:

This is super easy to grow if you're patient. Seeds take time and warmth to germinate. However, the last 2 winters I have left plants in containers outside all winter and seeds germinated on their own the next year. I am going to try growing some in a protected bed direct sow this year to see if they'll self seed in the beds too or only in containers.
